    The results are in

    First let me say that Cashmere is not the best color to judge depth or shine with. Having said that, here's what I did.

    Washed the car with Meguiars Deep Crystal car wash

    Clay the car with Meguiars Smooth Surface kit. I only used the clay and the detailer as a lubricant. Not the included cleaner wax. I used a bucket of soapy water to keep the clay wet and the Speed Detailer on the surface as an addition lubrication.

    Washed the car with Meguiars Deep Crystal car wash, again

    Applied Perfect Auto Finish - Professional Paint Sealant

    My Comments;

    Pros:
    Professional Paint Sealant goes on easy
    Comes off easy.
    I was impressed with the fact that there is absolutely NO white dust or residue anywhere.
    Did not leave white on the black rubber
    The shine is amazing.
    Smells good
    Small container is easy to work with

    Cons:
    I don't have a dark colored car to enjoy the full benefit.

    Next step when the sun goes down it to apply a coat of Perfect Auto Finish - Poly Seal Spray

    Gary, I love your products and see no reason to not use them again A+

    ,,,,and that report left us all quivering in anticip,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ation.

    Seriously, I too used to be a Meguiars' Man through to the bone - until I took a chance and ordered up a fistfull of Gary's products early last Spring to do a car I was putting in Auction.

    I have been singing his praises ever since. And his products certainly deserve the accolades.

    Re: The results are in

    I just have one question regarding the Poly Seal Spray. How do you apply it? At first I thought I would use it like Quick Detailer, spray on and wipe with micro-fiber cloth. However when I tried that the cloth was getting wet.

    When I read the directions it says to work into the paint with an applicator pad, like polish? Then wipe off?

    Gary, what is the recommended method on this?

    I have to tell you when I come out of a store, even at night the car just glows like never before. It looks like someone put glass over the paint.

    Re: The results are in

    His stuff sure perks up 9 year old paint, eh? I've long since lost count of the compliments that the paint and finish get for my car.

    And although most of them are from the blue-rinse crowd, the offers to buy that car just keep coming,,,,,

    Re: The results are in

    Polyseal is really easy to work with, you have two options, lightly spray on finish, wipe with mirco fiber, OR apply like a wax/sealant, light coat, remove with MF towel. either way is fine. Gary

    Re: The results are in

    Someone had mentioned durability during a similar discussion so I wanted to follow up.

    We have now endured 3 or 4 good rains since the application. Today it's been raining since 10:00pm last night, which at this point makes it about 26 hrs of steady rain. During the day today we had some pretty severe rainfall.

    I see no signs of degradation at all. The water is still racing off the finish like crazy. I'm convinced that Poly Seal lasts longer than anything I've used before.

    Re: The results are in

    Well thats it for me......Im sold

    All ive been hearing as well as the pics
    And not to mention the info that Gary was kind enough to take the time to give me, no matter how anal or sceptical I appeared to be.

    Id be a fool not to try it.
    Gonna put in an order and go to it before the winter hits.
    Hope there wont be a problem getting it into Canada.
    All the extra security and what not
