    Dust Repel Wax/Detailer?

    What do you guys think?

    Finish Kare 425:
    Anti-Static Detail Spray:
    Finish Kare- 425 Spray Detailer – http:// www.fk1usa.comis produced with polymer resins, lubricants, Ulra violet radiation (UVR) inhibitors and patented anti-static agents that gently remove fingerprints, smudges, and other light contaminates while creating reduced dust attraction. For use on paint, glass, chrome, gel coat, fibreglass and Plexiglas (See also Car Duster)

    Note- the use of polyester towels and friction on any surface will cause static, this can be avoided by using a 100% cotton towel (http//:www.DFTowel.com)

    Try it and let us know? Looks like it would be a good product. You could sign up to a detailing forum

    Maybe on a show car or non-daily. I would be a bit curious how it would hold up under weathering.

    I'll give it a try. I just hate washing my car and not even 3-4 hours later or first trip down any road it has a film of dust on it. Takes away from the glossy =P

    You should consider yourself lucky, out here in this crappy desert, as I'm drying I can already see dust settling on the car.

    Don't expect miracles from a detailer spray if you didn’t prepare the paint.
    Dust will still be settling on the paint.

    By preparing the paint I mean:
    1. wash the car;
    2. Claybar the paint (removing all contaminants and restore a smooth surface);
    3. wax the paint.

    Now you can easily remove dust (in most cases) just with water from a hose. To avoid swirl marks you might consider using foam.



    The foam encapsulates dust, sand and other dirt thus preventing scratches while washing. You need a foam lance, suitable shampoo and pressure washer like this one:





    Leave the car a few minuts after applying the foam and then rinse off. When properly waxed and only polluted with dry dust, it’ll be clean again. If not, washing is a piece off cake. 90% of the dirt is already removed by the foam.

    Believe me, you’ll make a lot of friends when foaming.

    I'm not familiair with the Finish Kare brand. Normaly I use Meguiars or Mothers detailerspray.
    Remember to wash the car before applying a detailerspray and use a microfiber cloth when applicable.

    Bad-ass. Thanks! Thought I'm not sure the product I was referring to is a foam detailer. I could be wrong, but I understood that it went on a freshly waxed car *Shrugs*

    You're correct, Finish Kare is not a foam detailer. You can and should use it on a waxed car.
    But only after you washed the dust off. Otherwise you'll risk scratching the paint. Just spray on and wipe off.
    Foaming is, or can be, part of the washing process.

    I'm Jealous. A colour matching Washmitt.

    I’m using Meguiars Last Touch spray detailer. One of the best detailer spray’s I know. Diluted with water in a 1:1 ratio also usable as clay lube. 20 dollars per gallon in the US. I wish I could buy it for such a low price in Europe.
