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 .

If you want to layer DG105 in quick sessions, you mix 25% DG601 to DG105. Mix well and apply as thin as possible. Don't mix too much at once, as any left over tent to harden/dry fast and cannot be used in a few days..... smile_wink.gif

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 .

Yup, agree that DG501 & DG105 combo is good for white color also.... smile_thumbup.gif

thanks bro jonlsl for sharing. Certainly will snap some pic and post at here when i run the 'full package' again. now my car has many swirl marks so only can snap from far. not at closer looks..hehehe.. i dont have polisher, all by hand..tired lehh smile_dead.gif

bro windz, "after a day, i top up with >DG951"==> usually i applied DG105 on Sat evening. sun morning do a quick rinse and wipe dry the car. then only i apply DG951 AW. feel like will get diluted if AW-ing on wet surface rolleyes.gif

bro krismas, i also had this thought (do side by side for comparison), but i cannot tahan. feel so geram if finish part or with different formula eventhough know this is for comparison / experiments)..hand so itchy. Sometimes i cant wait to let it cure. quickly buff off to see the results. smile_thumbup.gif

Mythbusters did an experiment between a clean car and dirty car. The clean car was more efficient. But the most efficient is if you dimple the whole car like golf ball which they did. Now who is going to do that. hahaha smile_big.gif
