I have been following WAC detailing's twitter and he kept posting cars that have been G'Zoxed but I was unaware of its capabilites. Now your post has poisoned me...

No offence bro, just exchanging thoughts.

IMO those aren't beads, more like water droplets and I can get those results without wax, just a surface prep job and my car will look like that.
