    Now I am not doubting you on the finish. But claying introduces marring that is removed by polishing. If it is a lighter colored vehicle it is less noticeable as they hide paint defects. It is not...

    What are you trying to achieve? Are you going to apply a ceramic coating? Eraser will do best on dry paint for it to work.

    I have not used the gyeon or rag company version. I have used the CarPro microfiber and it is pretty soft. The only thing I don't like is that it only has one side so it requires constant dunking...

    As I mention many times in other forums. Fighting dust is a losing battle. You are changing the behavior on the surface by “rubbing” it and creating a static charge.

    I agree. You have the option to use Essence Plus which will fill to a degree. It’s not a miracle product.

    A prep wipe is key to have the surface clean for the coating to bond. Eraser is a safer option than IPA for the reasons I mentioned. Also just be aware that these panel preps are designed to remove...

    You should not need to use something so aggressive. A regular car shampoo will work just fine with the occasional decon.

    I know Sandro from Car Craft Detailing showed that he has done it on his channel. I just used it but topped it off with a spray coating. Who knows if longevity is affected.
