Very impressive!

I tried reload for the first time on my black Camaro and was in a bit of a hurry, and have a few high spots you can see. Any recommendations on fixing them? They do not wash off, that's for sure

The high spots come from reload, use the essence again , then reload, wipe reload within minutes of putting it on...you can't hurry thiS process.....polymers are more forgiving than coatings....

Not entirely familiar with all of the CarPro stuff. Assume this would be the protocol:

1. Essence = M205?
2. CQuartz
3. Reload

Yup.......how old is your reload? it was re formulated about a year ago to take care of this high spot problem, the old stuff is terrible in that regard. I had to polish it off a vette last year.

Not trying to thread jack SS, but here's the application for Reload for no streaks, the newer version can still streak on black base coated cars. This application method works great. Wear gloves and use distilled water!

Yeah definitely have to polish again, then reapply Reload. Take your time, no rush, Reload is pretty easy.

No worries, thanks for the video...did he say he used bleach first? Couldn't really hear the guy in the video.

Should be the new stuff, as that was the way it was advertised. I saw the horror stories on the old version before I purchased. I'll double check the bottle.

There should be a date sticker on the bottom of the bottle, says when it was manufactured and has an expiration date as well.

I did it a little differently (actual CarPro YouTube video), but will use this method from now on. This seems to make more sense.
