So last weekend, I spent about an hour washing the car. Compared to previous car wash sessions where I would have to carve out a few hours time to ensure I would have time to give the car a quick once over after the wash to apply some Zaino using my Porter Cable orbital buffer, this time the wash was a strictly water and car wash (Zaino Z7) solution, because the Echelon coating is supposed to last a few years (and I don't want to scratch unnecessarily, right?)
Unfortunately, right as I began washing, I spotted this:
|WTF? When did that happen?|
So yes was not happy. I thought about if there had been any vandalism to the car, but since this was really the first time I had driven a long distance since getting the car professionally detailed, I was confused as to how this could have happened. Luckily, it's only a sticker, and so I will have it replaced with a new one soon.
Meanwhile, once I calmed down I continued to finish cleaning the car. After I dried it, I found this in my garage:
In any case, I figured I had nothing to lose, especially if I applied this to the rear glass. Application is simple, just like Rain-X. The liquid seeps though the large circular sponge attached to the end, and then you apply, let dry, and buff off. Presto!

In the meantime, I have a few real mods and some restore work coming to my car very soon. Stay tuned!
