I wish I could get my hands on a gallon of FK452. Seems like they haven't been taking orders for a month now.

Dodo Juice Red Mist Tropical is my new favorite, though it is a tad expensive for the amount you get.

Good thread.

I've used Eimann II, Megs Ulti QD, and Menzerna HGAS. They were all so, so. Next on my list it FK#425 based on Toad's recommendation.

Thanks man. I would also like to try the Opt, and Red Mist as well.

What's this I read about streaking...Should it be applied and wiped in the shade on a cool car, or doesn't matter?

Definitely apply ANY qd to a cool surface and out of direct sunlight .... especially for us Jet Black guys.

The FK425 can be dilluted some if you happen to get any streaking. I have never needed to change the mixture with it so I'm not sure of the mixture ratio one would want. You can also buy the FK425 in bulk for a very low price ...... something like $30 per gallon??

The Blackfire Deep Gloss spray is pretty good as well ..... I probably use this as much as the FK425 : http://www.detailedimage.com/Blackfi...ycharger-P272/

Ive used quite a few but I keep going back to my old favorite, Griot's Garage Speed Shine, I don't know if they changed their formula but it seems to be better than ever.

I like Optimum Instant Detailer for a qd. I use Duragloss Aquawax more, but I suppose it's not really a qd.
