If your car has a light layer of dust on it, ONR should be fine. The one thing I would do would be rinsing the car before. I just don't like the idea of wiping even with the dust on there because my clear coat is super soft. A rinse wouldn't be necessary if you had a hard clear coat. With that being said, ONR is an awesome product if used with the gary dean method.
+1 Couldn't have said it any better.
I have the "Infamous" Jet Black. The paint scratches if I sneeze on it too hard. ONR is in my detailing tool kit and as such.....it is important to use the right tool for the job. I also don't like using ONR on a dirty
car with soft
paint as a maintenance wash either. The risk of marring is just too high. Light dust-not a problem. If I am doing a correction then it is irrelevant and using ONR actually saves me some time in some cases. ONR is a good product and I will continue to use ONR when the situation calls for it or till the day a better product/method comes along.
