    Getting the best from SSR Range

    Stay away from the cutting and polishing pads at first, no matter what the brand, until you are familiar with the cut each product has on its own. Then you can determine if you want to add more cut via product or via pad .. remember the pad does not stop cutting, but the product will. Two...

    We use Lake Country pads .. unfortunately they are not carried in the UK by our distributors, but you might find someone with them I would stick to finishing pads until you get the hang of it .. let the products do the work, not the pad

    Natty’s red over Natty’s blue?

    Yes , the PwC will not allow build up but you are also muting with each layer after that .. the Pro Polish on the other hand leaves the finish very clear but with no protection at that point .. i also believe that skipping the PwC and replacing the Pro Polish will allow the paint to really pop...

    Natty’s red over Natty’s blue?

    It will help bring up the gloss, but if i were to start all over, I'd polish with Professional Polish .. it has no abrasives if you have not used it before , and is completely pad dependent .. using it with the soft finishing type pad will make it work like a paint cleanser ,, this will bring...

    New products I would love to see

    ok ... here you are: Spray and Gloss works great as a rinse aide as does QD+ .. only a light spritz per panel is needed the clay lube is a RTU product for a few reasons, first no one can duplicate the filtering of the water that we do in the making of the product. Entering a hard water or...

    Dont want any trade secrets !!

    Basically we put our money into better chemicals and solvents and most other companies are into Fancy Labels & bottles ... we don't advertise and word of mouth has brought us around the globe, where we are sold in more than 50 countries. I think our oldest customers would say , "they work"

    Clay Lube

    yes, 15:1 is the most often used dilution for general cleaning inside and out (tires, wheel wells) .. 1:1 would be for a greasy engine .. and yes, what BigLeegr said ..you could use Spray and Wipe as your clay lube too

    Clay Lube

    yes, Super Slick and Suds did the job until we made a better way .. when you make soap bucket for washing the car, just double the amount and have a wash mitt always dripping down to where you are working .. clay needs to glide not rub
