Thanks Bigs!

Autogeek.net has taken a few dollars from me now. I am one "happy camper". I got in the Klasse AIO and Klasse Glaze sealant-went with the 1 liter size bottles, pinnacle clay kit and lubricant, etc. Used the Elantra Club discount with every order.

I spent most of Saturday -high's in the mid 50's but wind gusts up to 30 mph. I vacuumed both 07 Limited, and wife's 2005 XLS Camry, and did some inside cleaning. Washed the elantra, two bucket method with a separate lamb wash mitt and rinse mitt. This worked very well because we have a water softener, so there were no water spots, since I got the water from the kitchen sink.

Since I ordered the kits, the microtowels, terry cloth applicator for the AIO, and biscuit applicator for the sealant glaze. I washed, rinsed, and micro towel dried the vehicle. I then used the pinnacle lub and ultra poly clay to "clay" what was a 5 month old Elantra, and was amazed at how fast the clay got dirty. Followed your directions exactly for turning the clay and toweling off the lube.

Next was the Klasse AIO application. Being new to the process, I used too much to start, but by the time I had gotten half-way done, I was doing it right. I then turned around and applied the SG. I did entire vehicle, and let it set for 2 hours. lunch and treated the tires with Armor-All gel with applicator.

Went and gassed up the Elantra (3) hours, and then used a micro-towel to get most of the sealant off. I had haze lines, so once again, too much.

That was yesterday, today did the XLS, and it went much better. I had the "routine" down much better, no excess AIO or sealant. No streaks, and it was much more comfortable day. High in the low 80's. Both vehicles "literally gleam" in the driveway. Both vehicle are "white" My wife just could not believe how bright and clean they look.

I just ordered 64ozs. of Pinnacle clay lube. Why? We also have a K2500 Suburban, and a C2500 Silverado L/B P/U. Both white, and both in need of the same treatments.

That is why I got the liter sizes of Klasse AIO and SG. with these 4 vehicles I expect to use 10 ozs of each product a year. I could be wrong, but the marginal cost of the larger size is minimal. And, I am a Texan for goodness sake. Everything has to be big downhere!

That great man! Happy everything worked out for you!

The SG can be a bit tricky... Try adding a bit of QD to the applicator pad. When removing, you may also add some QD to the m/f towel as this will ease the removal of the SG.
