Five Stars for 5 Star Shine
on April 20, 2015
I have been detailing cars for over 30 years now and I am extremely pleased with both the product and service. Many great reviews have been written here already and I don't want to be repetitive of the good things that have already been said. I do have some comments about the negative reviews that I believe are unwarranted. We tend to live in a world where everyone wants instant gratification without putting any effort in, and I believe that if you aren't patient and willing to put in the preparation work, your results will vary. As with any product, you absolutely should read the directions and product information and adhere to those instructions. To that end, a few tips.
1) I was afraid that 1 kit would not be enough to cover my F-150 after some comments about coverage. After speaking with the good folks at NSearch I was informed that a single kit is intended to cover 300 sq feet. THIN coat is the operative phrase here. I was able to do both my car, truck, all windows and all 8 wheels with 1 kit, and still have a small amount left for future touchups.
2) A good way to practice applying a thin coat is to start on glass, like your windshield. If the product is opaque on the glass and crumbles up like heavily applied wax when you go to remove it you are applying too much. Try a very small amount and elbow grease to do the entire window, you should be able to still see through it, no white residue.
Patience and preparation are paramount to a great results. This product is not intended to be your bug and tar remover, swirl mark remover, scratch fix or behave like a wax product. My F150 is 4 years old and it took me 2-3 afternoons of hard work to get the paint where I wanted it before applying the 5 Star sealant. My car is new, with only 5,000 miles on it and I was able to finish the entire car in about 4 hours. In both cases the results were flawless and after road testing through a week of spring rainfall I couldn't be happier with the results. The car can easily be washed with just water or a rinse-less car wash product.
