BG Time

How long do you guys let BG haze over for?

 

I have been doing a on / off. Should I be letting it sit for 5 mins or so?

 

Until it is completely hazed over, depending on how hot or humid it is it can take 5 minutes or as much as 30 minutes. If you put it on too heavy it can take longer too.

 

I go all the way around the car and then check back where I started to see if it is completely dry where I started, if it is I start removing it. If it isn't I walk away and check back.

Exactly how I use it.

hmm I wait at most like 2-3 minutes before taking BG or Americana off any longer it feels like I have to buff forever to get it off! MSS I do the whole car then wipe it down from where I started and of course the wipe down after 12-24hrs of cure time.

 

Wonder if I could get better results if I wait longer :drool:

Applied BG this week for the first time EZ on EZ off and waited for about five minutes before removing the haze. It is hot and humid here in Illinois now so I think that I could have waited longer. I may have laid down it too heavy in places, a little goes a long way. Practice practice. Also applied a coat of Americana, came out. :glasses:

When it hazes is the answer... but how long that will take depends entirely on the conditions you're working in.

 

Yesterday I put a little on a test spot, it was 97* with very low humidity... almost seemed like it was dry before I finished applying it, but if it were cold or humid then the dry time will be much longer.

Well I guess I'm doing it correctly then. I waxed it not too long ago outside in the shade around 7-8pm with at least 50% humidity. It looked hazy to me almost immediately :confused: but then again I'm new to this.

 

I waited roughly 2-3 minutes before removing. A couple spots were tough removing because I waited longer. Don't feel like I was applying it too thick. Hopefully I did it right, but the car looks great so I can't complain :thumbsup:

It always looks great Carrot!!

 

Thanks Rich for bringing those Adam's products by the other day. Really looking forward to using all of it on my next wash :2thumbs:

 

I am pretty happy with how it looks right now :drool: But there's always room for improvement!

Not sure if I can do much better than that. This color doesn't seem to offer as much reflection as other colors. All in all I sweated my *** off and got ate up by mosquitos putting MSS one day and then the next with Brilliant Glaze and Americana, but it looks so purdy :glasses:

Speaking from experience, my vette has all Adams products on at and bugs and bird bombs absolutely come off easier than my F150. Although my truck is only 6 months old, it is my DD, it gets extremely dirty and it just doesnt get the love my vette does.
