Ok Travis will get tomorrow Wash wash & protect. That stuff has a Brazilian carnauba wax as well as a pearlescent polymer that minimizes water left on your vehicle.
Sounds like good stuff & a Detailing & Appearance review waiting to happen!!

Its an amazing product. I don't usually like the wash and waxes, but I absolutely love this stuff and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

One thing I found while researching car washes is if you shake the bottle, and there'* a residue left as it settles, it has good protection. This is definitely the best product for its price (~$17). I also bought the soap dispenser nozzle for the water hose. I found that worked great too. I'm not sure how it would work in a pressure washer or applied with a sponge/cloth.

Plasti dipped my grille black, and my wheels gunmetal today. Trying to get the over spray off the tires is more of a pain than I was expecting. Gonna wait til tomorrow when its completely dry.

Looks good, you may have been able to use some painters tape on the tires if they were clean, it costs a bit for the tape, but not too much, that would have solved any over-spray problems.

when you look at the site instructions it says you are supposed to paint the wheel and pick it off. they made a big deal to say if you have enough coats. maybe if you dont it sticks to it too much and comes apart when you try to peel it

I did not see a link to the site instructions, I guess that makes sense though, but to have to paint the whole tire just to peel it off seems like a waste, but I guess if you have enough to waste it does not matter.
