    I started using it and I am amazed at how well it works. Seems to repel dirt really well. Easy to use and well priced.
    Give a try, lots of YouTube detailers love it.

    For me Bead Maker works awesome as a drying aid and as a sacrificial layer on ceramic coated wheels. The cure time is real!!! Apply it in the morning and walk away, in the afternoon you see a different truck.

    Will do, it’ll likely be closer to the end of the month before I use it. I clay bar’d, polished, sealed, and waxed a few weeks ago. We’ve gotten some weather roll through since then and more on the way. Once it passes I’ll check to see if I need to clay and re-wax before I apply bead maker.

    Bead Maker came in rather quick for not being on prime. Ironically I had an unexpected day off today with good weather. I washed the truck and the plastic bag test told me u should clay bar for good measure. Afterwards I applied BM per the instructions. Be prepared to have a second microfiber towel handy. The first one gets saturated quick. The dry towel leaves a perfect shiny layer. Goes on easy, wipes down easy. At first glance the paint looks richer and the surface feels slicker than wax. I’m currently waiting on the cure time to elapse.

    Lol, here’s a few quick shots from the garage. Lighting isn’t the best for pictures but for what it’s worth.. It’s a tight fit in there... For reference, the paint is brilliant black aka black with a light flake job. Approximately 3 hours into curing. The color pops when the sun is out. Hopefully it won’t be overcast tomorrow. I’ll take more pics outside if the sun comes out.

    Make sure to zoom in.
