Thanks! I like the idea of 22PLE or Opti-Coat, but the key is in the application and prepping, which I will not have time to do properly. So I've been going for options of easy on application with minimal curing time etc. I do like the idea of Citrus Cleaners, so I'm going to try AF Citrus Cleaner to melt away grime pre-wash. When my current shampoo runs out, I think the Chem. Guys Citrus Wash could be a good replacement.
Question on Iron X products (de-ironizer), isn't that meant for occasional once in a while applications (once every two months), when there's actually something for Iron X to remove? Feel like a brand new car won't have too many contiminants yet and Iron X may be overkill right now. Thoughts?
