Gtechniq's polishing pads and backing pad are Flexipads ... good, but not their own :wink: Dodo Juice pads and plates are Flexipads, too :wink: If you do happen to get some G1 on your fingers and touch it to your tongue, you get a really dry sensation for a few hours; like drinking Laphroiag!

... that's about as negative as I can be so far :twisted:

Thats some pretty inpressive stuff.

Hopefully we'll get some good weather this year and we can see how well it copes with a month or 2 of sunshine

The white mirror surround on the white saab has come up lovely as all of those scratch type marks (light grey lines) have all but gone. I have to say this stuff could be a godsend if it lasts as i hate doing my trim! I find that no matter how little New Look Trim gel i use i end up with greasy streaks down my doors off the wing mirror surrounds even when i buff them after application with an mf pad. 303 doesnt seem to last very long either. Ground Nut Oil looks great initially but last about 1-2 weeks tops. After smelling G1 i can only imagine how bad it tastes! I was seeing stuff after holding that near my nose for 30 mins :shock: :lol:

That was about the most noticeable improvement.

Remember that I used neat IPA first and scrubbed well to remove any previously applied products - that is a clear indication that those products covered up well and with repeated application could be revived. None provided a permanent solution.

To "prove that permanence", I will scrub that mirror casing with neat IPA when I use some more of the C4 on further areas. That will be interesting ...

What confuses me a bit is the vid on youtube. He says its a permanent fix but at the end he says 'its not like other coatings that may last a few weeks or a month but this will last for maybe 2 years'. 2 years is a long time i know but it isnt permanent. Hmm. It will still whip the others by the sounds of it anyhoo.
Im gonna get the 100s kit soon.

According to the science, it does bond with the plastic on a molecular level - it actually alters the plastic molecules. I guess like any science at that level it has a lifespan and the bond can break down over time - a couple of years is still pretty permanent for many owners.

Drizzle ... I love it! No, really ... I do. It's in the DNA of every Northern lad to love drizzle and what makes it especially enjoyable is Gtechniq C4 :D

Is the second pic your rubber boot spoiler? Ive just been speaking to the lad that put me on to GTechniq and hes saying hes looking for a friendly forum after another has tired him. I know him from the Alfa Owners forum and have pointed him this way saying how friendly everyone is and he'd be right at home.... :D

The real test of beading ... any beading is what it is like when it dries. We are due high sun tomorrow, no could and 18 degrees. I think the beads from this evening will show some truths tomorrow.

If this stuff dried out well without leaving dust and mineral staining, it will be worth it weight in gold. In fact, I think it costs about the same as gold ... no, really!
