1 Coat Jescar Powerlock+
2 Coats Collinite 845 wax
CarPro Flyby Forte to windshield
Full interior clean/detail
Switch back to summer wheels/tires

After about a week it will get it washed again and then topped with P&S Beadmaker for a final protective layer.





All in all about 20 hours start to finish. Not perfect by any means, but I learned a lot for next time and it looks amazing in the sun! Pictures do not do it justice.
You wouldn't happen to follow Obsessed Garage? Car looks great! I have been wanting to get some Beadmaker to try.

Thank you!

Yes I follow Matt and several other detailers on youtube. I can only dream of one day having the garage setup and cars he has.

It ended up raining on Tuesday so I rewashed on Wednesday and applied beadmaker. Pretty amazing slickness on the paint, looking forward to see how it holds up. Seems to work quite well as a drying aid. Glad I bought a gallon though as I used up almost a full 16oz sprayer bottle for the first coat.

You are probably downshifting properly. Try to accelerate at 5th without downshifting and enjoy the dip. You are welcome

I use beadmaker as a topper to my existing sealant, and it's absolutely mind blowing how well it works. I've tried a lot of other products, but this one wins, hands down.

Just gotta throw it on once a month and you're set.

Then again, most NA 4 cylinders do not have much to give when you floor the accelerator in a high gear/low RPM situation.

Changed the spark plugs, 57,000 miles, half of which has been boosted and on E85. Also installed Eibach sway bars...damn those end links, and the engineer(s) who design them and the horse they rode in on!

Are you saying this with respect to the gearing ratio changes? Since you've still got the zenki.
