Im confused, if bsd is difficult to use just stop using it and go with something else, you shouldnt be mixing other stuff with it to make it more user friendly

But it’s one of the best beading products out there. And it’s so incredibly cheap. And if you’re mixing, you can Customise it to act exactly like you want. Want more slickness or more hydrophobicity, you decide!

The trick to BSD is to apply directly to the MF towel and/or lightly mist onto the panel and wipe lightly and gently with an instant to stop it from drying. Keep working until the product has buffed off. Don't apply pressure. If there are dry spots, apply more BSD to the MF towel only, and wipe gently. Fold MF if the towel becomes too saturated.

Cant say ive seen it incredibly cheap, where do you buy it cheap

My beading comes from the protective coating ive applied to the paintwork wether it be a wax or a sealant, i simply wash then dry, only quick detailer ive used in the past , was megs last touch and currently have and autobrite one, cant remember what its called.

Dont often use them, i see what they do and they clearly have a purpose but i feel i spend some time applying a coating in the first place for it to last a few months, then i either do a routine wash or top it up when needed. Im never really sure if i feel its worth covering my coating with another protective product.

Surely you could simply use bsd as your main protective product if that was the case.

I always find it crazy on here when people buy say a £40 wax only to then top it with a sealant, many will disagree i know but itry to buy a product for what it does and the effect it gives, otherwise i just dont buy it.

Just my opinion though and tbf i have not tried bsd

Don't see what the issue is with BSD as i have used it countless times and never had an issue with it being grabby

I've just used BSD on soft black paint today. Mist onto MF towel and wipe gently without pressure. Little to no smearing. It's perfectly fine to use on it's own. It just requires technique to get the most from the product.

It was me that posted the original thread about mixing BSD & V7.

BSD offers great beading and water repellency, but it is an absolute pig to buff, really grabby and smeary (and yes I’ve tried every application "technique" known and not known to man!). Now this can depend on your paint. I’ve Honda nighthawk black and it is a total pain, polishes become sticky, it marrs really easy and pretty much anything other than GCV7 leaves smear marks.

CGV7 is lovely to use, super slick and if buffed off quick then I can just about avoid smears, but the beading and water repellency is pants.

I use a QD after a quick wash to maintain the effectiveness/lonegvity of a LSP as do many people. I can’t just wash and dry my car, super hard water and a black car just don’t mix, so it needs a QD wiping after a wash. BSD was a pain to use and smeary whilst V7 is a joy to use, but as it sits on top of the LSP, water repellency suffers.

My experiment was to mix the two, and as a result the best properties of both products came through. It could have ended up a grabby product with rubbish beading!

Even BSDV7 still smears on warm days, so I just use V7 when that happens. But generally speaking it is otherwise the perfect QD for me.

Well I confess to being a convert to BSD V07.
Used after every wash now.
Washing the car now is a joy as the shampoo mitt glides over the treated paintwork as if it was just waxed.
My 50:50 mix doesn't seem to give the same slickness to the fingertips as wax or Gtechniq C2v3 but ease of use as a drying aid is A*.
A big thanks to Shiny for the "recipe"
