  1. Apply a coating on them and they will look better longer and also much easier to clean.
  2. I found it to do a decent job mimicking the leather scent.
  3. It won't clog the pores if that is your concern. Also you won't need anything else on it like leather conditioner. It will repel it anyway. A simple wipe with any of the interior detailer will be sufficient.
  4. That is correct. The only change is the color. Haven't heard anything about it staining towels.
  5. You could try a polish and see if that helps.
  6. Lol no but there is always hope for you guys. I was referring to hosting one at the Anaheim location since I am close to it.
  7. Here is a thought, would it be possible to have these also at the various location stores?
  8. Welcome to the forum. If you are going to do PPF then polish and have the fil applied. Then you can coat it. At a minimum a polish will be a good idea. You may not need to compound. The test spot will let you know. You will get more gloss and the maximum performance from the coating.
  9. Don't let high spots deter you away from a coating. They are part of the learning curve with coatings.
  10. Technically you can coat without polishing. Boost is also not a requirement but it is 24 hours after the application of the coating. Those smears sounds like high spots. You are going to have to polish those off and reapply. Preferably polishing the entire panel and then reapply. You may want to try adding a little more product onto the applicator to see if you can level out those high spots first. If that does not work you will have to polish. Polishing is recommended after claying as claying will marr (a fancy term for scratch) which is removed by polishing. Not noticeable if you have a white or silver vehicle. You would then follow with the surface prep after polishing to remove any polishing oils. And finally finish it off with the coating. Take a high spot as a lesson learned. Easily fixed.
  11. If you don't find anyone near you then I am willing to help you out. I am not pro detailer in the sense that I don't detail for a living but I will on occasion do a side job. I am in the Lawndale/Torrance area which is about an hour or so away from you. I happen to have a bottle of the graphene coating.
  12. Read 90 days in the facebook group for protection.
  13. Pick up a bottle and try it out. If you like it then you can invest in the gallon. It is going to come down to personal preference. It's cheap enough anyway with the current sale.
  14. it appears as if the tire absorbed the VRT and not necessarily rejected it. Apply another layer and let it sit for a few minutes. Come back with a microfiber and lightly wipe it down and see what it looks like.
  15. Wait until you get the tires mounted and balanced. The tire sop will make a bit of a mess and you will need to clean them up a bit. As mentioned about the weights as well.
  16. How new are these tires? I ask because new tires have a release agent that is referred to as a mold wax. It takes a heavy duty cleaner to remove. Try tarminator on a microfiber towel and then proceed with your cleaning.
  17. Since you already clayed the next thing to do is a test spot to see how you want the paint to look. If you are happy with the polishing then continue on with your process. If you think it needs compounding then you can do it. I have found dodge paint to do well with just polishing.
  18. You would be fine with one step and even a polishing pad. Give it a go with one step and the one step pads. That is more than enough to remove it.
  19. If it it still working and you like it so much then keep on using it. It was updated not long ago. The difference is that you won't not be able to use GDS as a waterless wash but it is also a great product. I would say by a bottle of GDS and see if you like it. Or wait for the graphene version of CS3 which I am sure is in the works.
  20. Sure you can polish, panel wipe and reapply.
