911Fanatic vs Ford Edge

A while ago a friend called me and asked if I would be interested in testing a new product beta(tester) from Duragloss called Enviroshield. I agreed and after one kit was lost in the mail and 4 months of below zero temps we finally got our chance. My friend Chad brought out his wife's new Ford Edge. After our winter did it ever need it.

All jambs and engine cleaned with AG Powermax3
Engine was sprayed down with AG Vinyl and Rubber Care and left to dry
Truck was foamed with AG Powermax3 and rinsed
Washed with PB Super Slick'n Suds
Inner fenders cleaned with AG Powermax3
Tires and wheels cleaned with AG Custom Wheel Cleaner
Clayed with BH reg Clay
Polished with Gloss-it pad/polish combo and LC CCS/Menz combo
LSP was Duragloss Enviroshield
Wheels sealed with Enviroshield as well
Tires dressed with Gloss-it Tire Dressing
All trim dressed with Gloss-it TRV dressing
Exhaust tips sealed with Blackfire All Metal Sealant
Leather conditioned with Duragloss Leather Conditioner

Total time - 13 hours over two days















Dog hair was all through the truck. This was worst area - thanks Chad!


















Started by cleaning all jambs and motor


Engine dressed with AG Vinyl & Rubber Care


Letting it dry


AG Custom Wheel cleaner at work




A little fallout






Bit of a dust buildup










A couple pics of my Passat with Duragloss 501 and 111




Wiped dow with Wekstat Quick Wash before polishing




WTF






Nice cloud reflection


Todays weapons of choice


RDS were hard to capture because of the colour


All gone


Necessary for Flex usage




Tried different combo for other side






Pillars were a mess


Gloss-it 3" bp, 4" polishing pad and Evo beta


Finished with Gloss-it 3" bp, finishing pad and Evo beta




All polishing done






Richy was kind enough to have me supplied with a test kit of Enviroshield from Duragloss


The Kit


Contents


Mixing bottle with 2oz of the sealant


First of 3 additives


Second of 3 additives


Third of 3 additives


After 1 coat


Some other products I used today


After 2nd coat of Enviroshield






Tires were dressed with Gloss-it tire dressing. Wheels got 1 coat Enviroshield.




Exhaust tips polished with Blackfire All Metal Sealant


























































Theres that pesky Passat again!!


Keeping in mind I didnt use any on the panorama roof ( ALL glass ) this is what was left after 2 coats on the body, and 1 coat on all jambs and wheels



Thanks for looking

The pillars were polished with Menz Power Finish and 85RD and Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber Care was used on the motor. And I have both in stock. Lucky you!

It all depends on how badly swirled the car is. Not so much how mucch swirling there is, but how deep. The deeper the swirls, the more polishing steps, the more money it costs. This truck only had to be gone over once to achieve over 90% correction which the owner was happy with. Came out to around $395 for the exterior portion of the job.
