Default Duragloss products review (Detailed my car today) - picture heavy


Ok, here is the deal, I am a fan of Adam's products, and I was talking to Jerry at formymercedes.com, and he was telling me about his Duragloss products and was convinced that I would like them. He asked me if I would be interested in trying them, and only if I liked them, to give a product review. Well, I tried them out today, and I must say that I am very impressed.

Detailing products I used:

Duragloss Plush Microfiber Wash Mit
Duragloss Plush Microfiber Drying Towel
Duragloss Plush Microfiber Polishing Cloth
671 LIGHT SWIRL MARK REMOVER
601/111 DURAGLOSS 2-PART POLYMER POLISH SYSTEM

Here is a link to these products: Duragloss Products

First off, I really like the microfiber drying towels and polishing cloths. I though that I had some pretty nice ones, but these are very thick and plush with no stitching around the edges. I will be getting some more of these to replace the ones I currently have.

The swirl mark remover did a wonderful job of removing the light swirl marks that I had.

The DURAGLOSS 2-PART POLYMER POLISH SYSTEM gave my car more of a wet looking shine than what I was accustomed to with the Adams polishes and waxes, and was very easy to work with.

The end result is that I was very impressed with the Duragloss products, and I will continue to use them for my future detailing needs. I think a picture can do more justice than my words, so here are some pics that I took today after I was finished:

Very nice looking shine. How hard is to work with? Does it leave any residue?
Just curious.

It was very easy to work with. I followed the instructions that Jerry sent me which was to apply a thin coat of the #601 bonding agent over the entire car. This will also remove any old wax or polish. You do not have to buff or do anything else with the bonding agent. Next, I applied a thin coat of the #111 Polish on top of the bonding agent. When the polish comes in contact with the bonding agent, a chemical reaction occurs which creates a strong bond to the clear coat. This is supposed to make it outlast the competition. I will report back on that in time. Next, you let it cure for a specific period of time based on a formula provided. In my case, I let it cure for about 50 minutes. Then, I just went back with a polishing cloth and removed the residue, which was not so bad. Future coats of the polish do not require using the bonding agent.

Hope this helps.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I also got some of the #921 Fast Clean and Shine. I am going to apply it later tonight, but it is supposed to deepen the shine(not sure it can get any shinier), and it has an anti-static formula that is supposed to reduce dust attraction. It will also remove any residue that you may have overlooked. I will let you know how that goes.

Thanks Howard. According to Jerry, this is a polymer product like Zaino, but is easier to work with, and is cheaper in the long run.

Zaino is another polymer based product. Outside of that, there are other quality products like Adam's and McGuire. It is a matter of choice. Like I said, I am an Adam's fan, but I will be using These Duragloss products for now, as I am really impressed with the results. I am sure that Jerry at formymercedes.com could ship to the UK.

The SRT's do have the trim tape. I removed mine as it had sun fading on it, and did not like the look. Doc took his off a couple years ago with no problems to date. I decided to do it too. Looks much better IMO. BTW, nice catch. Most people would never notice.

Hey,

Is it hard to get off?
Does the roof not rub against paintwork?

Very Easy to get off. Just use a heat gun, and pull the tape off. The tape is literally about the same thickness as electrical tape. No rubbing or any other issues. Doc said he has had no issues after 2 years of it being off as well.

Thanks John. I got the chrome mirror covers from a forum member, and I really like them. The side markers I painted with a product called VHT NITE SHADES. They came out really good. They match the body color, but still allow the light to come through.

Sounds a lot like what I use, Zaino. the reason I asked about residue is that it leaves no dust whatsoever and it lasts. Glad you found something that works for you, nothing like a nice wet looking shine.
