    Lightbulb White vehicles

    OK here is my idea. Put some kind of coloring in all the products to detail a white vehicle. It is so hard to see the polish and wax products. I used Zymol once and the one thing I liked about it was I could see where I had been.
    Just a suggestion. Think about it.
    Thanks for the opportunity to post my ideas.

    Interesting idea.

    I know what you mean, if you put a thin coat of a polish or wax that is clear, or opaque, it can be very hard to see where it is, so that you can remove it.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    I just used NXT on my White 69' Stingray and must have wiped all surfaces at least a half dozen times just to make sure I didn't miss anything. It's interesting, if you really concentrate you can almost close your eyes and feel any missed areas during that final wipe down.

    :idea:

    I would agree with putting color or tint in the cleaner and the polish but defiantly not the wax!! isn't the object of a good wax job to protect the finish ? and that is done by leaving a small amount of the product behind.

    Hmm???? white veh. + redish wax = PINK

    My first truck was white and I applied waxed the whole truck and then wiped it down 1 section at a time, Find a system that works and stick with it.

    Imagine if the tint of the wax was a blue color. Since some of the product remains on the surface, maybe the finished results on a white vehicle would look like something similar to the color of a blue-white diamond.

    Not bad, Not bad even in green would interesting "IF" that were he effect you were trying to achieve. still can't see a company produce a product just for 1 specific vehicle type or color, if they did you know sure as sh*t we would be screaming about the price.
