EGP question!

Hi!
I tried this egp for the first time today, and should it really be like milky water in consistency?

From what I remember, yes it's very much like water. Can't remember colour, but can have a look tonight if I've some left for you, if no one confirms etc before...

EGP question!

Question

I seem to recall that you could apply SRP, let it haze and then apply EGP on top; then remove both at the same time.

Is that still the case? Or was that never the case?

(Always wanted to verify that)

Not something I've ever done not heard of, always applied, buffed off and applied next...

My local Autoglym rep suggested it many years ago as a time saving tip - never ever tried it tough.

It kind of makes sense

When buffing SRP, you're removing wasted 'polish'; underneath its bonded to your paint.

If you're going to apply EGP next, the solvents will cut through that dried polish anyway.

Hopefully AG will confirm this detailing folklore.

Wouldn't the srp residue just block the egp from bonding as you wipe it all off. Be interested to hear the official view.

EGP is solvent based, so as you wipe it on, the residue dissolves and you're left with a coat of EGP. That then dries/flashes off, and you're left with the EGP residue to remove.
