What can I use as a topper for h2o Guard & Gloss??

Recommended Posts

I applied H2O Guard & Gloss on my truck about a month ago. I’m about to wash it again and was wondering what I can use as a topper or if should not apply anything & just dry it normally?

So @buffalobob920 and I replied at exactly the same time, and I'll chime in again briefly. Spray Wax and HGG are in different product families...carnuba vs acrylic resin (with some SiO2)...I would recommend staying in the same family and continue with the HGG every few washes. Mixing can adversely affect hydrophobic properties of each other. Nothing wrong with trying the Spray Wax, but the HGG is just fine by itself. 

 

Here's more on product differences and layering, and why I make the recommendation I do...

You could try to layer some Brilliant Glaze on top of the GG.

 

That's true. But only for temporary, albeit amazing, shine. No protection added. Guess it depends on his goals for a topper.

Thanks everyone! It was my first time washing a vehicle that was previously washed with G&G. I know that Adam’s recommends to reapply G&G every 3rd or 4th wash. I went ahead & did not use any drying aid & dried the vehicle with the double soft plush towels. It was difficult to dry without using anything obviously. I sometimes find myself taking too long to dry the vehicle & notice water spots. Anything you guys recommended to help with this or any tips? Thanks in advance !

Use a spray or two of Detail spray per panel as your drying. Helps shed water, adds shine, and a layer of extra protection between the towel and the surface of the paint. 

 

My old old regiment was paint sealant about twice a year, G&G every couple of washes, and detail spray when I wasn’t using G&G.

My strong recommendation is to get the Ultra Plush Drying towel and don't look back. The Double Softs that you're using aren't meant to dry and so won't give optimal results, possibly leading to streaks, spots, etc. On the other hand, the Ultra Plush is an awesome drying towel...best I've ever used...soaks up a ton of water, and is a breeze to use. Adding DS each wash will help, too, and not cause any issues with build up, etc.

Another option I have but haven't tried yet is the Jumbo Grey drying towel.

I have to agree with @falcaineer on this one.  I used the Great White, which are excellent towels, and then was told by Chris about the Ultra Plush and now it is the only towel that gets used for drying the wife's car.    And the Jumbo Grey works great, but gets very heavy with the amount of water it can soak up.  I lay it across the hood of my truck and then lift it off and it pretty much takes care of the entire hood.
