I feel the same way. There's one guy who does their videos who I could just smack. That and the obtuse names they give their products, especially their line of polishes.

They all scratch... period. If my car is particularly dirty I'll run it through a touchless car wash to get most of the dirt off.

As for Blacklight I agree it's nothing special. I just use it because I have it but won't buy more. I'm currently top coating with Jet Seal which I like.

Peace out.

I'm cool with whatever everyone like to use. My theory is to find what you like and what works for you and use it often.

If you like Rinse-less type washes you should look into the Garry Dean "Infinite Use Detail Juice" and GLOSS SHOP "TRIFECTA". Both are really excellent washes as well as being super slick. The GLOSS SHOP "TRIFECTA" was made to be used with waxes as well as the Si02 coatings and the gloss and slickness it leaves behind is really something you have to experience as me telling you doesn't do it justice IMO.

I am always looking for new and better products and to help others if they are interested.
