03Indigo Posted April 24, 2005 Share Posted April 24, 2005 A couple of weeks ago, I went to http://www.detailersparadise.com, and spoke with Nick (since they are local in the Denver area). Got some great advice on what to use to take care of my new car, and he recommended the Klasse All-In-One followed by Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze. I first clay bared my car with the Griots Garage (http://www.griotsgarage.com) Clay and Speed Shine...since I had some over spray on the car from when the dealership fixed and repainted my bumper...because they backed it into another car during service ....but all better now. Just needed to get it smooth and fix the over spray. Clay is WONDERFUL for pulling off overspray...as was recommended to me by my buddy Mike R. So, a little review: All-In-One (AIO), is a one step cleaner protector, polish, and long lasting acrylic protection...but not a final wax. I went all over the car with this and the Porter Cable and a cutting pad. I only used very small amounts as it went a long way, and then when I was done with a small section, I cleaned it off with a microfiber towel. I only did about 4 foot by 4 foot before i would clean it off. Then I went to the Sealant Glaze...this is a very liquid "wax" that I applied again with my Porter Cable and a very soft wax pad that i also got from Griots Garage...but also have the same pad that you can get at Detailers Paradise. I followed the instructions that said cover the entire car, only needing about 2 fluid oz....I bet I used less than that total. Anyway, waited for it to dry and the instructions said to wipe off with a soft cotton towel...I took that to be a microfiber towel...well, NOTHING came off. I was in a panic. But no fear, I took one micro fiber towel and soaked it full of clean filtered water. I used that to first wipe of the dried Sealant Glaze, then used another micro fiber towel right behind it to dry it. well, after about a total of 6 hours detailing the new car to wehre I want it, I am VERY happy with the results and the recommendations I received from Nick and his team at Detailers Paradise. Here are a few close up pics of the paint...mind you, this is a bright silver car, but due to the flash messing up the true shine, I turned it off and used a tri-pod for extended exposure shots. That is the reason for the "yellow/brown" tint to my paint...from the lights in the garage being regular bulbs, not flourescent bulbs. now, on to pics: http://www.rmcb5.com/albums/album73/IMG_0821.jpg http://www.rmcb5.com/albums/album73/IMG_0822.jpg http://www.rmcb5.com/albums/album73/IMG_0826.jpg http://www.rmcb5.com/albums/album73/IMG_0827.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
