Really impressed, but how much should you spray on each panel before blasting it with a pressure washer, I think im maybe using a bit too much!:o

I think about 250mm per the average size car.

A little goes a long way, I've started using it for some of my clients recently, and like you, used too much on the few 1st attempts.

You can also spray it on lightly and wipe it in / spread it out with a clean wash mitt.

If you spray it once on a wet bonnet from about 2ft away, you will be able to see it cover most of the bonnet, its hard to explain, but a little goes a long way.

I'm using between 75ml and 100ml for cars varying from a Golf to A4 estate. any more than that is wasted really.

A friend got through 500ml using it on a 3 series coupe and a Golf. it didn't last any longer than using 75-100ml

50-75ml is easily achievable.

50? I need to try harder

Don't forget, that when it comes to rinsing you're still spreading product with the pressure washer so it goes further than just the area it is directly sprayed onto

I used it on my T5 Transporter van and made a point of not spraying the roof as I went round, but the roof still ended up treated as if I had sprayed it so this stuff definitely covers an area.

I think I might get another bottle to put it in with a better spray head for better coverage, as I've used almost 500ml in 2 coverings, so away to order more

Exactly, besides I recommend rinsing from lowest part of the car and slowly moving upwards. This way you wont product too soon.

I find spraying it on a lambswool mitt/pad and then applying it to the surface more usage friendly.

As above; as little as 50 ml to do the whole car if you use the mitt method on a small car like a Fiesta. :)

What are you doing with it?????! I bought a 500ml in Oct and it's half full after using it about 6 times.

Immediately before using I pour 75-100ml neat Wet Coat into a clean empty 500ml spray bottle and then top up with water and shake well.

I then use as normal but spraying quite liberally before rinsing off with a pressure washer.

So far this seems to work well for me, as well as getting a good even spread everywhere it seems to reduce streaking / spotting too.
