When I tested DG105, it surely has cleaners but very mild. Its very hard to describe how mild but I'll try. For those who has a white car, lets say you detail the car on sunday then drive for the whole week and in the week there was plenty rain and sun. So 1 week has passed and its Sunday and you wash your car. Then you notice the white car and car shampoo cannot remove all the black staining and black streaks. So you use DG105 on half the bonnet/car and you can see very clearly the difference. You can also see your application pad is all black.

That is the cleaning power or DG105. I would say low as these stains are "fresh". But in the same example you leave the stains on the car for 2-3 months you will notice that DG105 cannot remove it completely, then you will need stronger stuff.

So DG105 has cleaning power for only "fresh" light staining.


Putting AW then DG105, will the sealant last?

Can we mix wax and sealant together and paste on car? smile_tongue.gif I won;t surprise, someone might had tested it.

bro jonlsl, in your recommendation "For me I like DG601>DG105>DG951>DG105>TC this combo.", actually how many days for you to do this? are they completed in one single session?
currently, i applied DG601>DG105> after a day, i top up with >DG951. following week will be car wash >DG951.my plan is repeat this steps for few weeks, then put a layer of TC. i feel that DG105 can last longer than TC.

I really curious how frequesnt will you use DG601?

Base on the method, you will use up all your DG105 faster than DG601.
And one bottle of DG105 can last you for 2 years?

Wah, like that you will keep your remain DG601 in store room loh. smile_tongue.gif

want to ask a very noob question ah, dont laugh at me...

Is that all sealant got UV protection? Myvi paint dont have UV protection, that why u can see white myvi become yellowish, apple green become fade and etc.

any recommendation for good sealant with UV protection ah? last time i use polymer glazz(blue liquid 1), then change to liquid spray type(forget wat brand alr) ... now finish alr, is time for me to hunt for sealant.......

White become yellowish is normal. Green, gold, orange, red, pink... All these colors are easy to get fade due to it own molecule. Try notice those color car. I'm not sure is that due to the owner didn't take or else but I think even you put sealant or wax, only prolong it. The only color that will not fade easily even u wash it once a month without any protection stuff is Silver. Black and then Blue also can last but the dirt force u to wash it.

Bro you never read my blog ah. Must support lah, you can see pics there as well. You can see the diff when you enlarge the pics. With TC the details in the pillar wall reflection off the bonnet more detail than the DG105.

I do this over 2 days. Because its my daily drive. So I do it on Sat & Sun without the car being driven over the weekend. I rather do it that way and not drive the car so the paint/sealant won't get contaminated when curing and when adding the layers.

Sat 8am start: Wash, clay + paint clean if you need. Then DG 601, DG105 let haze for 1hr then buff off to a shine. Leave for 2-3hrs to cure then DG951. Then let it cure for 1-2hrs. Then at about 5pm apply last coat of DG105.

Sun 12pm: Apply TC then let haze for 1 hr, then buff to a shine.

Stand back and appreciate the work, take photos and post in AW and show us your hard work smile_big.gif .

I tried searching on the comparison of the look of DG105 with TrackClaw but not much info found so far. Did anyone tried applying TrackClaw on top of DG105?


I tried, Wash->Clay>-501->601->105->TC, but see no difference compare to the same process but stop only at 105.
But instead if, Wash->Clay>-501->601->TC->105 I can see a more in depth Oily Wet look on the car, maybe i m hallucinating, smell too much of the POWERFUL & nice fragrance of DG product, hahahhaha ..... i duno la but this is what i feel loh.
I m driving a WHITE CAR, maybe the effect is not that significant.

One thing i gotta say if u Wash->Clay>-501->601->TC->105 on a BLACK Car, the Deeper Oily effect is immediately felt in the eye, tried this on my friend's Black CITY.


Cheers, Windz

Dude,
WHat Anti UV la ? U mean like Olay ah ?
This is a Metal surface we're talking about, not biological skin surface la ..... hehe just kidding. smile_tongue.gif
WHITE turning yellow is a NORMAL process on a paint surface but u can SLOW IT DOWN but almost impossible to AVOID it.
And most of all not only it's caused by the UV but it's also and mostly caused by Acidic or Alkaline substance bring by the rain.

So a good Sealant to protect your WHITE is unavoidable.
I choose, DG105, because it protects car surface from all ACIDIC, ALCALINE, UV, Durable at least 3-6months if your eye is not so GATAI and on the bottle it says 1 YEAR protection guaranteed after each application.
But i apply it at least once every 3months when i start seeing the water bidding is not that ROUND anymore haha.....

But dude, other than sealant, if u r having a WHITE, u need a good Paint Cleaner too which leads to DG501, being an AIO(All In One) one of the best WHITE CLEANER.

I m like you browsing what's the best AIO to get end up with a list of product but i must say i never once look back ever since hahahahah...... like they say, this is call KENA POISON already la .... good luck .

For me I my DG601 don't finish so fast as compared to DG105.

I think you meant DG601 can last for 2yrs right since we don't use it that often.

From my testing Dg105 will last 4-5weeks with DG601. Problem with my car is that it is a solid white with no CC and it gets stained easily. So usually after 2-3weeks sometimes 4weeks (depending on weather) I already put another layer of DG105 on the car because I use DG105 as a paint cleaner for light staining which my car will have after 2weeks depending on the weather. So durability is not an issue for me. Its the coating which is there that gets stained. So basically the car is always protected.

My car is already 14yrs with OE factory paint. So nothing beats constant topping up of your favorite wax/sealant with paint cleaning thrown in.
