    Water beading video

    After 8/9 months of neglect every time I washed the car you could see the water hanging on the car in large areas

    So with Ben's (bertone of course) and a little searching I set about cleaning/ polishing/ waxing

    Before this video it's had:
    Week 1
    Wash
    Clay
    Wash
    Dry
    Scratch X
    SRP

    Week 2
    Wash
    Dry
    SRP
    Dodo juice blue haze

    Week 3
    Wash


    Click here if you cannot see the above video...

    Dry
    Dodo juice blue haze

    Must admit when I saw the water bead away like that I was pretty impressed

    No pictures as it pissed with rain at PVS and hasn't been touched since

    It's had one coat of SRP already after a marathon 6-8 hour claying session because the body was so bad. I want to get another coat of SRP on it before waxing it but not sure i'll have the time now

    6-8 hours………..WTF!!!!!! was you using a fine poly clay? aggressive clay may have reduced time.
