this looks like a miracle product, might have to give it a go
Does the manufacturer of this product have a website? I can't seem to find one and I wanted more information on it than is available on reseller's websites
I think @Reflectology who has commented earlier in this thread is the guy that actually makes the stuff and I seem to remember that they don't have a consumer website but sell through High Definition Detail SiRamik they also have a Facebook page.Thanks. I might be mistaken as I'm viewing on my phone but there is no mention on the website of diy products like lustrous, only seems to mention the professional products.
For curiosity's sake I have tried a couple of my favourite QDs on it, Koch Chemie FSE and CarPro Ech20 - they each give a nice candy look to the paint, look great for a day but the process of topping and/or the film they leave behind (I don't know which) actually makes the surface that more prone to dust and water spots.Is anyone using a QD topper over this and would there be amy benefit?
I was thinking of trying Sonax Ceramic detailer but not sure if there’s a need to!
I was initially thinking to maintain the Lustrous but as you’ve rightly said does it even need it!For curiosity's sake I have tried a couple of my favourite QDs on it, Koch Chemie FSE and CarPro Ech20 - they each give a nice candy look to the paint, look great for a day but the process of topping and/or the film they leave behind (I don't know which) actually makes the surface that more prone to dust and water spots.
With this in mind, if you're doing it because you want to increase the overall performance of Lustrous, you're heading down a dead end. Generally short term LSPs are pretty one dimensional products that major on one or two things - Beadmaker for slickness, Gyeon QD for sheer gloss, BSD/Ceramic Detailer for water behaviour.. each of these has an achilles heel that quite simply Lustrous does not have. If you are like me and do not like compromise, my advice would be to avoid topping and re-apply Lustrous every 6 months but only after a decon (or polish). It lasts as well on unpolished but clean paint.
If you're doing it for the satisfaction or enjoyment factor, or want to extract that subjective cherry on top then why not. The stake are low as you get 10+ applications out of a bottle and it's extremely easy to reapply.
