Did a one-step.

Client told me washing wheels was not necessary as new wheels would be put on asap. I recently read something about nano filling and the oils remaining even after IPA wipe down. I tested it out and there is some truth to the claim. Check the one-step tape pictures.

I don't like taping up the car as the residue from painter's tape is a pita. I just decided to rewash the car afterwards. Any remaining residue was manually removed with a brush/Mf/detailing sticks.

FMINUS - yeah I like the 3M pad a lot. yeah I like the zymol sponge more than the proline grout sponge. yeah your custom jetseal is thicker and is ever slightly slicker (not placebo trust me). yeah the Sonus pads are 100x better than the lake country ccs. and yeah that CG New Car Solvent is better than IPA wipedown. why are you always right????

Probably forgot to list some products...
