No detailing today but I did have this dent in the car door removed. The dent was courtesy of a Transit van whacking his door against mine, then just driving off. I know exactly who did it but I can't prove it.

I can't even tell where the dent was it was now.

These are the 'before' pics.

I知 restricted in what I can do due to weather and having to do it In the driveway as I致e no garage, but in hindsight as I知 new to using a DA polisher it allows me time to take it easy and do panel by panel and not rushing.

Cancoat is a breeze to work with, spray on Mf wipe and then buff off as easy as that And the beading is immense

Weather is to be really good tomorrow so I知 going to give my alloys 2 coats of cancoat tomorrow, not looking forward to that lol needs to be done as these alloys of mine are a pita to clean.

Another maintenance wash, used Tac shinee wax again, I have to say I'm disappointed with the hydrophobics. Back to GT Sigma I think. also used AM Shampoo again, I gotta say its pretty fantastic. I recommend you trying it if you haven't.

maybe down to the ceramic glass coating and pa products on the paint being so hydrophobic, i dont know but it didnt loosen much dirt.

That's a shame... what pH neutral snow foams are you used to using that clean and cling better?

In my experience even some of the thickest snow foams will not cling to clean paint that is protected by super hydrophobic LSPs. The exception being more powerful snow foams which knock back the hydrophobic properties of certain LSPs meaning that they can't 'bead them off' (e.g. Wax Planet 8 Below when applied to BSD or Polish Angel Rapidwaxx).

On the other hand, I've always found Blizzard to cling to the dirty parts of the car really well and I find it releases more dirt than any other pH neutral snow foam I have tried. In my view, if there is no dirt on the car and the panel is hydrophobic there is no benefit to your snow foam dwelling on it anyway.

Another side benefit is that Blizzard actually rinses clear with no trace surfactants left behind.. in most cases you would need a contact wash to remove what Auto Foam or Spritzer leave behind. This is one of the only snow foams I've used where there is literally nothing left behind. 99% of the time you'd be doing the contact wash anyway, but the beading OCD appreciates it
