Bouncers bead Juice, what am I doing wrong ?

I just cant seem to get it right, I always end up with marks. Am I using too much ? I spray and it doesnt seem to be covering the whole panel so I spray some more, but it just leaves marks after drying. If I spray two squirts per panel like the bonnet it doesnt seem like its touching anything so I spray it so Im getting a mist on each part then power wash off, but still the same glued on marks. What am I doing wrong ? Help

You only need a few sprays per panel. I quirt a few sprays on a panel then use an old dooka mitt and wipe it around the panel before pressure washing off. Covers the whole panel and doesn't use much at all. You could even use the dry method like a QD. Few sprays per panel spread with microfibre then flip and buff.

I think I might be using too much as i dont think Im covering enough panel. I thought that was the selling point of it? I seem to spray one part of the bonnet but it hits say 1/20th of it, so I spray more so its all covered thinking I need to hit each part. I take it thats wrong ? Anyone successfully done the wet method ? What am I doing wrong ? Should i ignore me not covering each section and just do two sprays and ignore whether i think Ive covered it all or not ?

Sounds like too much being applied. Spreading it with a wet but otherwise clean wash mitt is the way forward. Couple of sprays per panel (for a door say - maybe another one for a bonnet, etc), spread it all over, leave for a minute, jet wash off. It's what I used to do with Gyeon Wet Coat, which is a similar product, worked well.

I have successfully done the wet method by just spraying. I probably used 4 or 5 sprays on the bonnet. The spray head is wide so it covers. Even the mist off the spray will still be touching the panel. The panel doesn't have to be soaking wet. When pressure washing off bead juice is so active that I have found when it pushes around from the water it's still covering and protecting. Hope that makes sense.

So I had a play around with application of Bead Juice the other weekend....i deffo DO NOT suggest that you spray on then simply wash off as you get exactly the issues you are describing and they are a pig to buff off.

Same goes for the spray on the panel then wipe over then rinse method...lots better but still not perfect.

Best method I have found is get a wash mitt...nice and wet couple of fine sprays on it wipe over the wet panel (one at a time) then rinse....leaves a perfect finish.

Do one panel at a time and rinse...especially if its a sunny day and the car is a dark colour.

Oh and I had no joy with applying to a dry car and buffing off....took me a while to get the smears off the boot of the TVR!!

Not knocking this product at all as its downright amazing but the best method for great results is as I mention above.

Sounds like it's a more concentrated product than Wet Coat then

I would absolutely say so....the volume of active ingredient is much higher.....and it sticks to anything....try it on wheels!
