I just tried out a product I ordered online called Wet Paint Glaze. Idk if anyone has ever used or heard of it but its supposed to wash and polish your car all in one step. The end result is amazing! I could not believe how ridiculous the shine is on my CT lol...

Pros:
- Extremely easy to apply AND wipe off
- A lot quicker than washing and waxing
- Amazing just detailed shine
- Also cleans the windows to the same shine

Cons:
- Gets in hard to reach spots and dries white, probably will have to buy a detail brush
- Hard to take off plastic trim pieces but does come off
- Terry cloth towels that are required produce a lot of lint and I found myself using a microfiber towel to take off the lint.

And no I'm not plugging them lol this stuff is greatness though!

Thanks man, of course. I want everyone's CT to shine like this lol.

The website for the product info is : www.wetpaintglaze.com
You can order it by phone but I'm not a fan of giving someone my card info over the phone.

Authorized Dealer: www.throwdownperformance.com
It is in the Deatailing Products Section.
They have many combinations but I chose the 25.98 one just case I didn't like it lol.
Came out to 36 bucks after shipping was calculated.
Was able to use my PayPal account so checkout was easy.
Ordered it on Saturday and was delivered yesterday so it took 3 business days.

Dude I didn't even wash the car lol. The entire car looked like the second pic above and I just sprayed and wiped it all off after I applied it to the whole car. It took me a little over an hour, only because I was nervous lol. Im sure I can do it in 40- 45 min and it'll look the same. Did have to wash the rims though cause it was raining the last 2 days and they were brown...

To clarify, you wash the car with this product? And then just wipe off? Yes, toss those cotton rags and go with microfiber. Microfiber does a better job of lifting dirt up off the paint and since you are describing basically a one step process, you want to get the dirt up into the rags or you will scratch the paint. Microfiber will not leave any lint either. Looks good.

Thanks. You wash the car with the product but it leaves it looking like you just spent a few hours detailing it. Hides the normal scratches you get from washing it very well. It specifically states to use terry cloths because they claim it works better with their product. I was following the instructions to a tee cause I was nervous lol.

pgarci01, I believe this product is also called dri wash, ultra-ion. I have been using it on my golf cart. In a year and a half I never had to use water to wash it. When I bought it is was just called dri wash. Ultra-ion. I think it comes from the same distributor. Never used it on my car but tempted now. I know my golf car looks brand new after using it..I bought the 32 oz size which should last a long time. Great product....

This stuff is greatness no matter what name it goes by lol... This kind of product is new to me altogether cause I thought it was impossible to wash a car properly without first using water and soap. After spending hundreds and hundreds on detailing products I was shocked to see that this gives me such similar results. How much is 32 oz bottle of it?

Alright man, you sold me! I just ordered the $25.98 package this morning. Already got a message back it's shipped. Will report back on my results some time next week. I have black too and it's such a pain to keep sharp...anything that makes it easier, I'm in!

No that was just a pic of what I ordered from throwdown and the terry towels I used. The only thing I used the smaller bottle. You spray that on the car, spread it in, and then buff it out. Greatness!!! No more half day detail jobs lol

Although everyone has their own favorite products, this might be worth a try. I've read thru the company web site and it's very convincing. For a really dirty car however, I would still use a soap & water "bath" first, to remove serious dirt. I'll order some and try it. Does it work streak free? I can never get windows clean without streaks! And I've tried everything. Someone here loves Zaino as I love Colonite for a final finishing wax.

pgarci01, broke down and used the dry wash on my CT. Took about 50 minutes and came out terrific. Should have used it on my cars instead of only using it on my golf cart. Nice wet look. I bought the 38 oz size, cost 35 bucks plus postage.
Norwood is the Bainbridge area. I lived on 205th St.

Yea its completely streak free I've never had such clean windows lol. I've never used Zaino but I've only heard great things about it. It's just very expensive and its a multistep process. This produces ridiculously good results and is much cheaper than Zaino so I decided to share my experiences on the forum lol.
