New Wax.... 3 quick shots 56k invited!
Picked up a new wax @ the local Harley-Davidson Dealer, it'* called S100. This carnuba comes in a white tub with a shiney blue top, cost about $16, and worth every penny. The same stuff is sold as S21s and marketed towards cars for about $10 more.
Did a pretty thorough wash with dawn to strip all wax off, no clay or polishing, and went at it by hand. This stuff is pretty hard in the tub, but is the smoothest applying, and buffing wax I've ever used. It truely feels like a wax, not some compound. It doesn't discolor black trim either like all other carnuba waxes I've used...
Shots were taken almost 48 hours after applying with a few water spots from some sprinkling clouds on Sunday, and about 70 miles on the freeway back to Mankato. All images were only resized, no level adjusting, etc...
The rocker panels on my car are pretty beat to hell, and anyone who'* seen Purple Pearl Bonnies in real life (especially mine with all the detailing work over the years) knows they're not that brightly colored. This wax just makes it POP. Depth is amazing, i'll have to find a good time of day (not mid-day like these pix) to get out the camera in macro mode and show what I'm talking about.
