Reflectiveness

Because if you don't have it, someone else will. . . .



'merica

BTW are you able to buff things out of windows?

I noticed at a certain angle in certain light I have what looks like to mean random "stains" on my windows on the outside that window cleaner doesn't get off but if I rub real hard with my finger some of it comes off, that would take ages to clean that way though.

You can take a claybar to your windows to get the stains out.

Car's dirty ATM, rained twice this past week, but still shines nice. I'll get some more this weekend.

Clayed last weekend with the help of Stephen(swebster), his wonderful clay bar and amazing wax.

its been safe on my tinted windows for the past 6 years now.

NXT is really good with glass. i'm really picky when it comes to glass (especially the windshield). its effortless most of the time. and a little goes a long way. I even use it on my TVs it really works wonders.

My Honda after it's first clay, polish and wax with me.




When the Pontiac was clean, it shined like nothing else.
