yup is the ultra deep shine, but even with the prestone after it drys to a haze & i buff it out it still leaves a residue. i tried calling you dis evening because i was frustrated. Don't think it will show in a pic but i'll see.
thanks for the reply.

For folks who don't know....it's a PERMANENT paint coating. it doesn't wash off or anything. the ONLY way to remove it after it cures, is by significant polishing. Also, on the Mohs hardness scale, it exceeds the hardness of basic clears?

(someone embed this for me pls)..thx
This presoak / car foam wash is what i'm trying to get. After all the research done this will eliminate swirl marks etc. Its purpose is to lift dirt, grime etc off the body of the car & trap it into the foam. Same principle as the latest car washes in Canada / States which is touchless.
(1) I'm thinking when using my p/washer to heat the water to a pretty high temperature & wash engine, wheel wells, wheels & body to loosen the dirt etc.
(2) Then apply pre-soak on car & simple green on engine & wheel wells. Let sit for approx 20 min for engine & 5 min for pre-soak, then rinse off with garden hose / p/washer.
(3) Once step 2 is finished, using running water, use a MF cloth & re-wash car.
(4) Finally drying will prob yield best results via high velocity blower after using the Hi-Tech Flexi Water Blade (made of surgical silicone) I tried the blower (high output) on the car & was amazed. It was borrowed !
WRT MF cloths, never wring it, squeeze it to remove water.
The p/washer I have is a Karcher 1600 psi so there is the bottle adapter to fit for the foam cleaner. Hadden & Co has stock of it or off amazon.

Hey Karim, nice to see u in the FLEX 3401 VRG club, man. You have the real macoy of DA polishers. As popular as the Porter Cable is (and I still use often) it is no match for Mr. Flex. I just wrote a post answering 'Chung" (not sure I got the name right) on an article posted highlighting the PC, and I mentioned the advantage of the Flex. A great time and product saver. And a true hybrid between the more powerful direct drive rotary buffer and the orbitals.
As you already know though, at the end of the day, it is your correct pad/polish combination, and technique, that does the trick Thing is, a lot of polishes etc out there, even with some popular brands, are really 'old school' compared to the latest type stuff.
