Will try it out and post my impressions later on.
Tried the above products today.

Hyperwash
The dilution ratio is superb. Just a few drops into a bucket is all you will need and it will work just like any other shampoo in cleaning your car. Will try how it foams with a foam lance later on.

APC
Excellent product for cleaning tyres. Spray on,let it work for 10-15 secs agitate with a brush and clean with water for clean tyres and hub caps!

Car Pro TarX
This was the superstar of the day! Our Octavia had very old (2+yrs) and stubborn tar spots which wouldn't go away with WD-40 no matter how much I applied and tried rubbed. Parthasarathig forced me to try this out, I bought it thinking it'll be a waste but it turned out to be well worth it. Sprayed the product on,let it work for a minute or so and then rubbed it off with a microfiber cloth. Most of the spots went away the first time, some however required more work. At the end of it, the panel looked brilliant with all the tar spots gone

A question , right after the car is waxed when you run your hands over the panel you can feel that subtle very fine smoothness of wax by your hands when you run it over the body surface. But after a week even if the car is not washed or wiped that's gone but the surface is smooth but that feel from a just waxed panel is different why.

I have run out of stock on ONR.
Any pointers where can I get it online and what's the price for a 8oz bottle?

Thanks

You can write to ecocarcare.asia
They are the authorized distributors. Or you can visit their facebook page and place the order. There are now two versions of ONR available. One is ONR and the other is ONR Wash & Wax.

Thanks man! I will get in touch with them.

I need some product to get rid of scratch marks (mostly shoe marks) from the black door pads. It should restore the rich black look without being shiny.

Any recommendations? I tried meguiar's natural shine. It's a good product but did not remove the scratches from the door pads.

For restoring trim, Carpro PERL works well. I've tried it and it does a reasonabl job. However you need to apply 3 coatings for it to last long. During monsoons expect it to last max 2 weeks before you have to reapply.

If you want absolute restoration I suggest you try CarPro DLUX or Gtecgniq C4. These are expensive, but once applied will last you a year minimum. You can get all these from greenzcarcare.

Hi

I saw some scratches on my bike's tank today (Black). The scratches aren't very deep and the paint is intact and looks like a deliberate attempt on the part of some freak!

How could I get rid of them? I have previously used 3M's 1 step finish compound (picture attached below) but I am not sure of using it again because I saw black color on the cloth when I used it on my black bike.

Black colour on the cloth is a sure way to know that your bike has single stage paint and hence no clear coat. Motor cycle paint is often very thin so tread carefully on using any sort of rubbing compound on the paint.

Pictures of the scratch will definitely help. Pour a steady stream of water on the scratch, does the scratch disappear or do you still see any traces of it? If you see traces, the scratch has gone all the way in and you can either live with it or get it resprayed. It is possible to correct in case you see the scratch disappear with the layer of water on top; however proceed with caution.

I will get the pictures once i give my bike a wash. But how do i proceed to correct it assuming that the scratch is not that deep and passes the water test?

And though not suggested for use on my bike, but otherwise how is this compound from 3M? Is it considered any good?

Hi,

I was given a spray called waxpol protector spray- seems to be all-purpose- plastic/leather/paint (as per written instructions) Can it really do it all? Has anyone tested this particular product and is it good for anything? Thanks!

I wouldn't use it for leather.

Get a leather conditioner from a reputed brand to maintain your leather or a bi-annual detailing job should keep your interiors and exteriors well maintained for years to come.

You may check out this link as well. It looks like ONR's official online store on Facebook.

I am yet to try this store. If you are purchasing it, please share your experience.
