Yes it can be sprayed on a panel wet or dry. The car looked a bit smeary because having 2 bottles I might have sprayed liberally and not buffed it off properly but don't overspray.

It seems different to EZ Gloss Boss in this regard because having got a second bottle last year because the 1st one had dye separation issues, it did not smear even though i might have oversprayed it.

Seems a bargain for a good QD at £2.

Was in Tesco earlier. Everything Simoniz is half price but the QD is £2.50, rather than £2.

Anything else in the range worth a dabble?

Ultracare alloy wheel cleaner.

I tried the window cleaner on my windscreen and it was smearing badly in rain yesterday. However I hadnt done anything else to the glass just sprayed the cleaner on and buffed straight off, no claying or IPA wiping or anything.

Looked at the Wilko one I bought recently and it was £2 but bottle looks old. Looked at the Tesco one and yes it was £2.50 but bottle very new. Both work very well.

Other good stuff in the range (all worth a punt at £2 to £3) :-

* Speed carnauba wax (good for door jambs around the boot area etc)
* Shampoo (great as clay lube also)
* Simoniz original wax (great as wheel sealant and pain to apply on bodywork but great shine)

The microfibre wheel brush is also good for £3. Nice and long and easy to get to the back of the barrel.

Everyone should get some of the original wax and learn to apply it, once you can apply that stuff thin you have passed wax application 101.

Wholeheartedly agree. As thin as gnat's wing someone said. A good waxing session can be very therapeutic.
