Is this true phil....does it mar the surface at all?

Can't quite tell either, based on a couple details I saw posted by these guys it looked like the cars were in kind of rough shape anyway, so it would have been hard to tell if there was new marring from this product.

Understandably, they might have a tough time finding someone to test it out on a swirl/scratch free car though

yes it can mar just like a clay bar can.

We have done a few new car preps with it and no issues.

I may do it on my black car soon.

Ordered! I've been procrastinating with my semi-annual spring detail because having to clay the car is just too tedious. Looking forward to using this!

Just used it for the first time. No marring, but I did go through a bottle of Pinnacle detail spray. Excellent product. What normally took me about 1 1/2 hours with a traditional clay, only took me about 45 minutes with the Nanoskin and PC.

Thanks Phil...consummate sales person. I actually have a bottle of ONR, just burning through the Pinnacle stuff before I mix my own.

I am a newb, no doubt about that.

Is this the stuff you used in the pictures where the car is completely wet? You don't HAVE to use detailers spray? Can you use this stuff as a normal washing regime (and spray it off if you feel like it?) Thanks for your patience!

Might need to try this new product rather than clay though!

I would leave the water on the car but you still need a lubricant so the ONR is a great inexpensive set up or the NanoSkin Glide would work well.

I tried Nano Skin. Works well. I don't like Nano Lube; it leaves a residue behind.

I'm definitely interested in trying this. Reduced prep time may actually get me to detail my own car. Every time I use clay, it always introduces micro marring as I think this product would too. As long as you plan on polishing afterwords, it's never a problem.
