My advice, donít do this anywhere near sun. You also need some water on the panel, if you try and use it near dry, itíll smear.

One side of the car was in the shade; that was fine; normal amount of water on the car, couple of sprays per panel and dried it with my normal towel.

Got to the other side, and most of the water had evaporated. Tried the same thing and the HCW dried on the panel and seemed to smear. Felt grabby like neat BSD.

It did look very good though, and no problems on glass and trim. I didnít spray the glass but the towel was running over it as I dried.

Found some smears on the sun side, felt like high spots, easy to buff off an hour later.

My take on this, is that itís very very thick, and difficult to get the right amount per panel. Much like BSD. But this is designed to be used with water left on the panel, so I am going to try cutting it with water to make it easier to use and try some other spray heads. I found a good trigger that worked with neat BSD.

I prefer Sonax spray and seal at this point (when I have access to a pressure washer), but I mostly do ONR washes with a Worx Hydroshot; so if I can get the consistency right by cutting it with water, I can see myself using it as a drying aid with every ONR wash.

Will see if itís hardened up tomorrow morning.

Will try the spray and rinse method next week

Looking forward to photos / thoughts of how itís doing ...

From reading the information about it, seems the spray and rinse method is the primary use, so hopefully better / easier to use ?

Meguiarís Hybrid Ceramic Wax

The primary application is on a wet car, but Iíll give that another go when itís not so sunny. I only get shade after a certain time of day, so limits my ability to use it unless itís after work.

Iíll do a rinse less D114 wash and try HCW again sometime next week; d114 doesnít have any wax or polymers like ONR.

If I stick to D114 then I should get an idea of if itís still protecting. I have some CMX on the way, but Iíll have to find another car for that.

anyhow, looking forward any updates on looks and durability on HCW!
Plus one on BSD and grabby. I've found grabby = too much product. Used sparingly BSD is a breeze.

I believe Jon on Forensic Detailing youtube used a moistened MF applicator to spread HCW and said it was easy to apply this way?

Little update

Did 300 miles in the car (dry) didnít have as much dust/dirt on the sides as when using BSD, could be wrong...



Did a rinseless Megs D114 wash. Paint felt slicker than normal, didnít use any drying aid, and D114 has no protection...



Did the wheels, all done in 20mins



Itís going to have to rain for me to see the beads, but doesnít appear to hold onto dust and dirt the way that BSD does, so could replace that eventually.

Some guys on the US forums have said to cut it 1:1 for application or 1:4 with water to use as a drying aid, so will keep experimenting over the next few washes.

Yes I tried that on first application, but it was too hot and it was drying and smearing in the heat. Will keep trying different methods as I think the product is worth it (itís like a non-grabby version of BSD).

Need another donor car for CMX (but thatís a pure spray sealant supposed to be used on bare paint, so different class of product).

Came out to a beading shot this morning:



This was the morning after the D114 wash with no drying aid.
