Re: The Great Drying Towel Debate

thank u sir. I can be fair and I have put up with A LOT here. Honestly...my 2014 was coated with OptiGuard and I watched it be done. I have all literature from the installer. It is NOT an easy process and not for everyone. Just wanted to make that clear.

Re: The Great Drying Towel Debate

I love optiGuard (expensive) and the way a professional paint corrector can work out a car and put their high tech coating on to keep it looking great.

However, most of us want to take care of our own finishes by rubbing on them with relatively inexpensive cleaners, polishes and waxes.

For those DIY people, nothing is more rewarding that using high quality towels to keep that shiney surface gleaming until the next application.

Adams, Zaino and others offer great products so car owners can give them a show finish in their driveway.

A great place for ultra high quality Korean towels (not the China stuff) is theragcompany.com

With prices far less than the name brands and perhaps the highest quality I have ever seen, they should offer the diy guy great microfiber towels at costs that are more reasonable.

(I have no interest in the company, other than having bought their products and found them amazing in quality and price)

Believe this is where the high end detailers get their stuff.

See many here cannot see is what this picture has to do with correction detailing.



What you see here is what makeup can do for a women, and when she removes it nothing has changed. Basically, correction detailing does the very same thing, but as more defects happen from no protection it requires more makeup( wax and glazes) to maintain that look.
That's a unique way of explaining it.

Well, you should be the perfect person to test what I say as true or not.Since you have a new vehicle freshly treated with Opti Guard you should wash it with Dawn only when needed. Do not apply wax over the Opti Guard because the wax will just smear and defeat what you are trying to accomplish. Use a spray detailer when needed for shine boast after washing.Do this, and you will see what real protection is, and still have a awesome shine that is easy and cheap to maintain.

I really do not think you fully understand what Opti Guard does by your comment. Qpti Guard is designed to do the opposite of what you seek.With this product there is no reason to use these things that you mention because they all breakdown over Opti Coat causing swirls to appear which is not what anyone wants to see.Also, these things you mention offer zero protection.

So you claim that every wax manufacturer is lying, since they all claim their product protect. Popular Mechanics also disagrees with you.

You may think everyone else is wrong ... but I don't think so.
Listen, I am not the one claiming water beading is protection like every wax manufacture does, and if you cannot see that then you have the problem, and not me.

Is this statement a lie:
Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 by Collinite is guaranteed to outshine and outlast any other car wax or protective coating. That’s why Collinite calls it the permanent auto wax. Get a full year of paint protection from this detergent-proof, weather-proof car wax


If many here could read between the lines when it says:

paint protection from this detergent-proof, weather-proof car wax

The only paint protection offered is that it is detergent-proof. So what that means is that detergents will not break down the wax only.

Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 is a popular choice for winter paint protection. Its durable protection stands up to road salt and ice like no wax you’ve used before

Considering most people realize that most waxes offer no real protection from these things anyways. How would Collinite compare any worse or better.

Now this is just pure not true:

Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 by Collinite is guaranteed to outshine and outlast any other car wax or protective coating

Opti Coat is a coating, and there is no way that a Carnuba Wax with a Polymer will do what Opti Coat can.

The 3 links I provided all say that wax protects the finish. They don't relate it to beading, unless I missed it. I take it you didn't bother reading what others have to say.

Do I really need to wax my car?



The answer is: Probably


Yeah that is a real strong answer,so did you bother to read your own link.



Second Article:


The 3 links I provided all say that wax protects the finish. They don't relate it to beading, unless I missed it. I


Aside from the preference factors and recommendations, there are a couple of easy tests you can perform to know whether or not it's time to break out the cotton cloth. The age old water beading test is one. During your wash, take a close look at how the water behaves on the surface. If it beads up nicely, then your last wax job is still hanging in there

Yeah, you did miss it.

Third article:

Your Car Wax Mileage May Vary
Despite their suggestions for how often owners should clean and wax, product manufacturers won't make any firm promises for how long any of their products will actually protect a vehicle.


Gee, are you blind, or just brain washed. Once again you missed this also.

I don't know how I missed that.

So you are saying that as long as water beads on the paint my car is safe.

Thanks, that helps.

No, beading does absolutely nothing as far protection goes. Wax manufactures have propagated that beading indicates protection, but that is just a myth.Did you notice in the last article that no wax manufacture will warrant protection for a given time. That would set bells off in my head.
