Yeah, although if you want to make your life even easier, give it a thorough clean with a pure shampoo, tar remover and fallout remover, apply your C2 Liquid Serum and then use Purple Velvet thereafter. Should make keeping the car clean EASY.

A bit of effort to get it to that place though

I've got a drying towel coming in. These things are ace for the motorbike. I recommend them to anyone.

I've also ordered a small size of purple velvet shampoo and some Hellshine glass and visor sealant with a small applicator.

Nice purchase!

Top tip for glass...

2 cloths. 1 for applying the product and rubbing till its nearly all dry. 1 for buffing afterward. Never had an issue since adopting that process

Update on the PPF situation.

303 Products hadn't tested their Graphene Spray on XPEL so suggested asking XPEL.

XPEL went to their chemists and told me that there was no concern with the listed ingredients, but, without testing the product they don't know if there is any concern with the unlisted products.

They've shipped me a sample of their recommended in-house product. Legends! I didn't ask for it, but I'm very happy to receive it. It's their equivalent to Gtechniq C2V3.

Further to the above, I queried the prep required for their Ceramic Boost product and in their reply, not only did they give full instructions, they also shipped a full size bottle of Iron Remover and samples of PPF cleaner and Detail Spray.

I've asked where I can leave positive feedback because I would like to give credit where credit is due.

Definitely! It's not so common these days so we've got to praise it when we see it :)

Autobrite Direct don't seem to be in any rush to send my stuff out. I've given them a prod.
