    Post Your Beading Shots!!!

    I'm not sure if this is the right sub-forum to create this thread. Mods, if this is not, please feel free to move it to the proper sub-forum.

    Anyway, I recently put on a coat of Ultimate Liquid Wax. I'm just amazed at the hydrophobic effects it gives especially when I hit it with a stream of water. Well recently, it's been raining in Phoenix which is rare nowadays... It already rained last weekend so the car already had a layer of dirt on. I would have thought that this would degrade the effect of the water beading but boy I was wrong. I woke up today and it was drizzling. I got out of bed and rushed to the garage to see how the water beading on the car looks (sad huh??). I was all smiles as I opened the garage door. As I saw that, it got me thinking that we don't have a water beading show off thread so I quickly got my camera and snapped a few pics.

    So members of MOL, show off your beading shots!!! Please make sure to post what LSP you used. I'll get started.

    LSP: Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax











    Just imagine if the surface was clean... The beading would probably be tighter.

    Let's see if this works.... It's NXT Gen 2.0 and it refuses to let water stay on it...

    Thanks for sharing your pics Nick and dtuna!

    There was some rain that passed by this morning from California. I didn't hesitate to grab the camera and snap some pics:











    It still has the same coat of ULW as my last post. It was washed with a rinseless wash last week.



    Anybody else have any beading shots?! Please post yours! I'd love to see them!

    Ultimate Wax Paste topped with M16. This picture was after about 3 months. This car sits outside and has been through several rainstorms since then. Very resilient stuff.

    Great shots fellas! As I got home this evening I noticed the water beads on my wife's car. I got a little artsy on this but I love how the beads looked with the light. All this paint has is X-Press spray wax. Car is a bit dirty but the X-press seems to be holding well.

    Alright Marc, just as I was about to leave work today, I remembered this thread, so I got back out of my truck and snapped some pictures, so you better enjoy them!

    My LSP is Ultimate Paste Wax at about 2 weeks or so ago. The evening before these were snapped, I used Duragloss 921. I'll tell you what, this stuff really keeps the road grime from sticking. If applied within a day or two or three before a rainstorm, you can go out driving in the rain, and when your car dries, it will appear as if your car was never in the rain.







    Always searching for the best.... Keep it country!

    Re: Post Your Beading Shots!!!

    Just a few shots of my daily driver.
    Professional polish by Dust to Glory & Opti-Guard (pro version) applied a few months back.
    Not supposed to be necessary, but I like to keep a layer of added protection on top of that,
    SO these pics were taken a few days after a layer of Meguiars Gold Class Carnauba Plus Premium Liquid Wax.











    Thanks for looking!

    Some pics I took last month of my father's 2001 Buick Century. Collinite 476 was used and I believe it had been applied at least a month before these pics were taken. I use Meguiars colorx topped with NXT 2.0 on my black 2001 Ford Ranger but I didn't take any beading shots. My truck beads just as well as my Dad's car but I prefer to use the collinite on his car because of the color.
