Its so obvious that no coatings can replace regular car washing.
Many condo/apartment dwellers cant wash regularly and they start asking about coatings.
Hence, i surmise that probably they are assuming that if they cant wash regularly, this "coating" will still "protect" their cars.
But to "protect" from what???

When i probed further, its actually "protection" from stains. Hahaha...
What these owners actually want is, even if they cant wash weekly, parked outside 24/7, and when they finally do wash their dirty and stained cars, that car will instantly look super shiny with no stains at all, with almost new car look.
Sort of a "magic armour".

This is where the misconception starts, and ending with disappointment.
Nothing can ever replace regular washing­Ÿ˜€....and they will discover this very quickly.

Most of my customers specify the LSP that they want.
For an average priced LSP with better than average durability, any one of Taihokohzai's paste products would be OK.
Their Naviwax is certainly not bad at all on well-prepped clearcoats.

On my personal cars (all wet-sanded silver) immaculately maintained, i only use J Werkstadt and apply every 3weeks.
Out of all products tested on silver, this still gives the look on well prepped silver IMO...very bright and reflective.

erm, I've tried S99 Fusso Coat & Rain Hop. both of them excels in water beading but they retained dirt which was not remove-able with normal car wash. The test cars were parked indoors at night and washed once a week with MG NXT or Shampoo Plus.

if you dont mind me asking... what happened to your red civic? smile.gif

My friend tested the Fusso Coat also and yup it retain a layer of dirt. However, the water beading is just fantastic.... smile_tongue.gif
