Applied two coats yesterday to the Atlas after a wash with Gold Class and a quick IPA wipe to remove any remaining Griot's Poly Wax.

So far I'm very impressed with the gloss and candy-like finish. It's hard to capture but I'm very happy.

Does it have a slimy residue? This has been my concern with top dressings and drying agents is that they'll leave a greasy/slimy feel to the surface. This has absolutely been the case with every trim care product I've tried.

Not even slightly... I've never experienced that particular issue with any LSP.

Back in the day when I used Armor All, it left a slimy residue. I recently bought a can Cover All, under the recommendation of the parts store, stipulating that I didn't want slime. He assured me it wouldn't and went out to the Burb and hosed down the plastic cap on the front bumper, he said to leave it alone, it won't be slimy . . . smirk2 It was slimy. On the bright side, I did figure out that IF it's used sparingly, it does help restore the color and luster, but you've got to go through a carwash to get rid of the slime. The luster lasts for quite a while.

I'm actually on the hunt for non-slimy products, in case you couldn't tell, LOL so if you've got good ones to recommend, toss 'em out there.

I did see Mother's CMX being talked about here a little while back, but have not had time to dig back into detailing products.

I used to work at O'Reilly when younger. Trust me, we were pushed like [censored] to sell Cover-All. There were monthly sales competitions actually for Cover-All.

That stuff is trash, though. All the commercial car wash places loved it though. One guy told me that Cover-All is the bread-and-butter of his business. He always offered "free" tire shine for car wash customers, and sprayed down their tires with it. It looked great, but it was slimy as you said and would sling all over the car. And that would make the customer have to return for another car wash within a week.

Take that how you will.

Armor All and the other one are not considered LSPs.


Looks great roofless.

Gee, how did you know it was O'Reilly's? LOL Yeah, not a fan of Cover All.

Thanks! Saw the combo and had to have it - they had to bring one from across the state.

Great call getting the black wheels... I bet it looked a ton better after changing those wheels.
