U-Pol panel wipe is very popular here in ireland nearly all body shops use it or recommend it . i have a 5 litre tin of it and have found it as good as any of the more expensive panel wipes that come pre-bottled eg gtechniq etc

I ordered the U-POL "slow" panel wipe in the end. I won't be wiping down whole cars with it, just a few sprays to remove polish or wax residue now and again, maybe the odd bit of tar spot removal. Five litres should last me absolutely ages since it's taken nearly 18 months to get through my half-litre of Cleanser Fluid!

You can use your empty cleanser fluid bottle with it. Nice shiny aluminium bottle Any thoughts or observations vs Cleanser Fluid?

Absolutely, the plan is to just top the CF bottle up from time to time. I only ordered the U-POL stuff yesterday, should be here tomorrow. I hope to get chance to do some more polishing on the car this coming weekend, so will give it a run out then. To be honest, I don't expect it will be very different to the Cleanser Fluid!

Body shope uses Panel Wipe before they paint, and not when it's painted, it's quite a big difference!
And as mentioned before, they contain aromatic solvents like white spirits, nothing one should inhale unnecessarily.

[QUOTE=tosh;5332351]Well if it's just going to be used before a coating, then I think it's a nice alternative to solvent based panel wipe

I wonder if it'll smell like Eraser or Prep?


if it smells good doesn't mean it healthy, you should always read the Msds before using any product to see if it can harm you. Whether it smells like **** or chocolate..

Whilst this is all true enough, as the saying goes the poison is in the dose. I assume you don't strap on a cabon filtered facemask when you go to the petrol station to fill your car?

Nope, neither do I use panel wipe in one

(as usual, a little common sense goes a long way with these things - ie it's not nice, don't sit there sniffing it!)
