Whats the point of beading? Dont you just end up with spots anyway? I'm looking for a way to wipe away rain marks etc easily before going out because washing all the time is doing my head in!

I'm glad it's not just me.. Weather is cold, wet and windy and i'm the only one in the house smiling: I spent hours cleaning the car yet i look forward to rain so I can look at the car covered in beads of water. :?

I've been trying Soft99 Fusso Coat Dark for the last few months. I've got 3 coats on now and although not the glossiest finish I've used its durability and water repellency are phenomenal. Absolutely insane beading ! :thumbsup:

I’m sure that my car isn’t quite as waxed as some on here (and I will try to rectify!), but I thought the frost on the car this morning looked pretty good :)

gave the car a clean yesterday - there is major road construction around here and the roads are covered in mud so it won't stay vaguely clean for long :cry: ; I'll be giving it a full wheels off clean in the next few weeks when time/weather allows. :thumbsup:
