Wink BSDV7 - The QD Utopia?

I had high hopes for BSD, but found it grabby, smeary and hard work on my awkward NHB Honda paint. It left the paint surface not particularly smooth and left application marks on my black paint. But the beading is AWESOME!

Somewhere within the 155+ page BSD thread i said that the perfect QD would be cross between CG V7 and BSD. V7 goes on so well, buffs off easy, leaves your paint super slick, but the beading is not so awesome.

Well for those of you like me who don't get on with BSD, is bring you BSDV7!




A straight forward 50/50 mix given a good shake.

Well it goes on like V7, smooth and slick, buffs of easy and leaves a nice shine.




Just need to wait till it rains to see how it beads

Well i couldn't wait for the rain, so have just been back down the garage.

A few squirts of H20 and i must say, the beading ain't too bad




Not quite as rounded as BSD on it's own, but much better than V7 on it's own.

Looks interesting, perhaps you could experiment with different concentrations. I suspect just a bit of V7 would massively improve the application of BSD without affecting the water behaviour or durability too much.

Can't really experiment at the moment, that was my last bit of V7!

Need to order some more.

Isn't this the fun of detailing. I had the same problem with Bsd so diluted it with 25% Zaino Z6. No more smears. Beading looking great Lloyd.

BSD does not leave your paint smooth to the touch does it.

I love the water repellency, but not the finish.
I have been going round the car after a wash with the lightest of spritzes of Werkstatt Acrylic Glos. Leaves the paint super smooth, and upon washing next time, does not seem to have any adverse effect on the underlying BSD layer
I tested the bonnet half and half, and 2-3 washes on water behavious is same both sides.

I might take a leaf out your book Lloyd and mix some Werkstatt with BSD.

Great test Did something similar with V7 and some last drips of Z8 and worked well. Have some BSD on order so will experiment - have a gallon of Autoglym's QD to play with the BSD!

I tried this today with the last of my diluted demon shine drying aid. I guess the final dilution was something like 20% deionised water, 20% demon shine, 60% BSD.

Application was significantly improved and none of the dragging and smearing I sometimes encounter, not checked beading and sheeting yet.
