My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic
 
I admit it. When I wax a car, I love the look in the sun but, I cant wait until it rains. I have been using Collinite #915 http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/autogeek_2175_49387008
as a winter wax for 2 years now. No wax (carnauba) lasts longer.
I had a chance to put some on the Jeep this weekend and ...IT RAINED THIS MORNING!!

Granted it was a hard rain not a mist so the beads are not as awesome as they could be but...
Bad Blackberry pics but I had to share.
Are you a beadaholic too?

Was hoping this had to do with earning beads at mardi gras.

I am also a Beadoholic!

... and love the Collinite's as my winter wax as well but I use the Insulator Wax #845. Works great, water still beads after almost 2 months and no nasty smell like RP mentioned - smells like most generic waxes out there.

Great products :thumbsup:

Yes, it does smell horrible and it is hard to remove if you put it on too thick but, good lord does it look good and last forever...ok that might be strong but 4 months easy.

What is your summer choice? Mine is P21S.

Have yet to try any of the P21S products but hear good things.

I usually go with either Adams or Zaino in the summer but may try something new come spring - possibly one of the poorboys offerings.

I also love the beads. Light rain today in Omaha and fine beads all over the hood of my Grand Cherokee. I use the same Auto Armor Teflon that the dealers sell when you buy a new car. This stuff works great!

Now the bad part. With all that rain I have a dirty car. But hey if we have nice weather I might just slap on another coat and pray for rain.
