APC as a water spot remover

Don't think FSE leaves much in protection behind but is fairly glossy. I don't use it as a LSP though. I always go over with something else. I just use it as a waterspot remover. I think some do rate it as a detailer though

^^^Exactly this.

I use it as a water spot remover, almost like a panel wipe before topping up protection, it is glossy but very little protection if any at all.

Iím a big fan of Fse works a great at getting rid of watermarks and bug residue. I like the gloss but it doesnít last long.

Can you set up a water butt?
My drive gets sun for most of the day, that is when the sun actually comes out to play so washing our black car in its glare is necessary a lot of the time. Our tap water is hard so what I tend to do is have a couple of watering cans full of rainwater at hand to pour over the car after rinsing down with the power washer. This filtered rain water doesnít leave water spots and it dries itself a bit by the way you pour. Depends on lsp I guess? This gives me time to pat dry the car

KC FSE is a Quick Detailer. I believe they term it as a Finishing spray.
As I wrote before once my present QD is finished I shall defo buy FSE.
