I'm guessing you can make the QD from ONR as well?
I assume this stage is to avoid water spots, or does it serve another purpose.
On a car with a bit more grime would you just use a normal TBM and add a bit more ONR to the wash bucket to offset any dilution from the rinse bucket.

Thanks for the video

I think using the QD version of ONR after a ONR wash is a bit pointless, as its not going to add anything you havent already just got from the wash - and ONR does leave behind a little gloss and protection. ONR QD is a good cleaning QD thats useful for using on a dusty car etc that doesnt need a full wash. I use Opt Instant Detailer (OID) or FK425 mostly as they add more slickness and gloss than ONR QD.

For a dirtier car I use the 2BM but no point adding more ONR to the wash solution as it does nothing except waste product - thats according to the maker who you might think would actually encourage you to use more product If a car is really filthy I rinse off the debris first.

Think I may give this a go too. Having finally got a hose, PW and foam lance sorted I realised today what a faff it all is to get it all out, set up, used then packed away again. Not to mention the resource use. So a quicker, easier alternative for routine washes sounds a good idea, especially as my car doesn't do many miles. Have had an eye on ONR for a while now but this gives me the incentive to try it out. The PW and foam would still have their place I think.

Thanks for sharing the video.

Now I have an even better idea on how to use the product.

Will try to make time this week to use it for the first time.

So the QD stage is purely for gloss and not to prevent water spots?

you dont really get water spots as you are drying it before the sun dries it naturally

the QD/spray wax adds gloss and protection etc depending on the product you use and your need. You can skip it if you want but I like to include one or the other to add that little % after each wash

thanks - if its really filthy just use whatever pre-wash method you like. I like to rinse or PW if needed but foam or whatever gives you the level of pre-wash you want

Great video Damon - thanks for taking the time to do it and put it up

I'm sure this will be much help to some users who don't want to spend too long on a car, nor are worried about a few swirls (not that it makes them when used properly anyway!)

Great video - I had a go today, but I was leaving too much wash solution in the sponge, so it wasn't the easiest to dry. I can see I was using too much now, so will try your method again tomorrow. I love the speed of using this product, not to mention the great finish it leaves behind!

What dilution ratio were you using in the pressure sprayer?
