Yeah I love to detail, stress reliever for me and I love seeing the results. I will let you know when it arrives, might need a few tips before I start, probably do it next weekend.

Love this method, I've been doing my cars this way for years! I am a bit OCD about cleaning my car and the 2 bucket system always seemed inefficient to me, I hated how the wash water would still get dirty and I really didn't like using the same dirty towel on the entire car. It didn't take long for me to just start using multiple towls in one clean bucket of wash water. Reading Glens write ups over the last month has definitely improved my methods and products used thats for sure.

Same here! Glen is a valuable resource here! I like the fact that a lot of people on this forum have their own little tips and specialities, together we all help each other out.

Good stuff and a great community here!

Thanks Glen!

I have to agree with you.......Rinseless or Waterless Wash is the way to go!

No thanks. I like to remove the dirt and crap not rub it in.

If my car was relatively clean and I wanted to touch it up before the cruise on Friday night, o.k., I can see the use for this product.

My car is full of road grim, dirt and all the other junk from a weeks worth of driving, it gets a proper wash.

Glen clearly stated in his OP "if you keep you'er car clean" If you'er the kind that likes to let you'er Camaro look like you took it mudding before you wash it then yes a Spray off is needed 1st. All of witch is covered in the write ups Glen attached.

Yeah exactly...this is NOT for filthy dirty cars that have been neglected for months.

I polished the car and applied crystal seal the middle of last week. My car got rained on over the weekend so today I tried a rinseless with duragloss. My car still looks fantastic but my question is, when can I apply another coat of crystal seal? Is there a prep procedure for it or can I apply it right after doing a rinseless?
Thanks Glen!

I would rinse the car with clear water, dry and applyCS. After that not for a couple months , it's just not necessary. And then continue to do your rinseless See the other post I put up about using a drying agent, aqua wax, for drying ....do that every 3rd or 4th wash to supercharge the CS......
