Where did you get it from?
I would love to get one for mine... at the moment the boot carpet is covered in dog hair

Thanks for the song suggestion! Yep that is a good one :) Added to my playlist - which is here on Spotify. It covers a range of music genre and has songs that highlight spacial awareness, vocals, bass, instruments such as guitars, drums, trumpet, symbols etc

https://open.spotify.com/user/jp949/pla ... Lrq7TY172A


My go to stezza test song is 'Block Rockin Beats' by The Chemical Brothers

About 1 minute into the song a really low frequency bass kicks in - the type that you cant hear, but feel

I like cranking it in the house to annoy the Mrs - it feels like an earthquake rattling the place ( the kids love it lol )

In my continued efforts to keep my car clean, I did a full exterior detail over the weekend. Previously I have used waxes and synthetic polymers. Most recently I have been using Duragloss 105 + 601 followed by Duragloss Track Claw. These synthetic polymers have provided great shine and lasts about 9 months.

Always wanting something ‘better’, and just to try something different, I detailed doing the following:
- Wash, with some APC
- Clay, Dodo Juice
- Wash
- Polish, Menzerna 2400 and 3500
- Surface clean, Gyeon Prep
- Quartz coating, Gyeon Prime x 2
- Spray sealant, Gyeon Cure

The quartz coating, and the other Gyeon products, were the new parts. I went with a quartz coating for 3 reasons. 1) This coating is meant to last about 12-18 months so longer time between full detailing. 2) Dirt repelling ability so helps stop dirty and other stuff sticking to your paint therefore easier to wash. 3) Gloss, the more the better. I will add a 4th, beading (just because they look great).

I can only comment on point 3 and 4 at the moment. The gloss is great! Much better than the other waxes or sealants I have used. I will add a photo but showing the gloss on white paint is more difficult to photograph than on other colours.

The beading is great - just started raining.....

Re: the application of quartz coating, it is very simple to apply but very timing consuming.

I am very much liking it so far :)

Looks so good. Areyou using machines to help polish?

Looks great Jon!
After getting some quotes for detailing last year I bit the bullet and got that polisher and am using it with the Menzerna products too.
I used clay bar, a three stage polish and then a spray on-hose off sealant (can't recall the name).
It still looks like a new car after almost 6 months of weekly snow foam 'no touch' pressure washing.
The polisher did a great job on restoring the headlights too.
Well worth the investment.
