    Re: Meguiar's M799 PRO Hybrid Ceramic Bead Booster

    Thanks Nick, i should have known better to not mix and match using a competitors product. As i said, i had fantastic results using on top of M27, which will now become my go-to LSP. and will use this M799 on top of M27. So i should be good. What is your opinion though on using it on top of D115, which does contains wax. Because i never let my cars ever get too dirty, i prefer to just do a waterless wash, using D115 8:1 dilution, and a few microfibers. I just use it to lift the dirt, then to give it all a final buff once the paint is clean of contaminates, either using Fast Finish, ULW or a different product, In-between the monthly LSP's i was just using D156 synthetic x-spray. Everything was non-ceramic, so to speak. Today, everything is 'ceramic' Will it affect the bonding, if i used a non-ceramic traditional 'wax' waterless wash. i have an entire jug of D115 that i recently bought to get through. I do also have still most of my original D114 left. (same as D115 minus the wax for those that don't know) that i very very occasionally use at 1:128. Typically at times if I’m going to clay, or polish, I’ll get the D114 out… Should that now be my preferred waterless washing choice over D115 given there’s no wax in that product?, if i plan on doing my final detail using M799 outside of my monthly M27 LSP.

    I really do not think the main culprit here is using over a non SiO2 based product, I feel that is more so has to do with the design of the product you were using it on top of like we discussed previously, regarding the abundance of fillers & oils potentially remaining on surface. So with that said, you should be fine to use over most anything else. But yes, ideally it is used as main source of protection on paint with no existing protection or to boost a SiO2 based sealant or coating.

    How does this product do on glass / windshields?

    I'm pretty sure the official answer will be "it's not recommended / not designed to be used on glass" but has anyone actually tried it?

    There are a few other Meguiar's products which, while officially not recommended for glass, do very well for this purpose - my favourite being M135 which is now sadly discontinued, so I'm looking for an alternative

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    I don't put anything on windshields, but I do apply it to all other glass. When I first started using it, and applied the product too heavy, I noticed it was a little tough to remove from the glass. But after dialing back the quantity applied I don't see the same smearing.

    +1 to not putting anything on a windshield. I've learned the hard lesson that it messes with your wipers too much and causes them to chatter in particular conditions. I would use a dedicated glass sealant instead that has low friction.

    Great, thanks for your help!
