The reviews on the Polish didn't wow me. The Ceramic Spray impressed me but I'm not sure it's worth it over the Seal and Shine until more real world stuff clocks in.

I'm having trouble deciding on which set of Microfiber towels to use with my new GTechniq CSL kit. I've been looking at CG's stuff because they seem to be readily available on amazon. The Rag Company stuff seems like it will be coming from the US & there are way too many delays at the moment.

What do you recommend?

Actually, my car was just repainted & then fully polished, so I bought the CSL kit, as well as C5 for my wheels.
What else do I need to do properly do my ceramic coating on the car & wheels?

As for towels I really like these as they are super soft - https://carzilla.ca/collections/brand-g ... s&view=all

You should wash the car, then decontaminate it - https://carzilla.ca/collections/brand-g ... 50ml-dzbxh
polish it if needed
IPA Full car, 2 times would be best - https://carzilla.ca/collections/brand-g ... wipe-500ml
Apply Coating.

Thanks. Any recommendations for MF towels on amazon? I'd probably be able to get those MF towels tomorrow via Amazon. Canada Post will take a little too long coming from Carzilla.

Auto Obsessed is the main distributor for The Rag Company in Canada. They're based in Edmonton and charge $10 shipping for orders under $150. https://www.autoobsessed.com/collection ... ag-company

I use nothing but TRC and I'm very pleased with their quality. Make sure you use a dedicated microfiber cleaning detergent for your detailing towels to maintain them, I suggest 3D Towel Kleen: https://3dproductscanada.com/towel-klee ... detergent/

I do not sorry, They do have some express shipping options where you would get it in a few days.

I wonder if once fixed, could you get a clear Paint Protection Film on the area would help protect that area. My experience is rocker areas take a beating either way.

Does anyone have reviews/opinions of the Feynlab brand of sealants. They have sealants, ceramic coatings etc. I can't find much on them from the big detailing web forums/sites.

Someone recommended the Feynlab Ceramic Nano Sealant as a quick wipe on wipe off sealant with 4-6 month durability.

https://www.feynlab.com/product/ceramic-nano-sealant/

Right now I've been using the Optimum Opti-seal which you wipe on and it is supposed to flash off. I usually find myself giving it a quick buff over afterwards for any remaining residue.

You can get a whole car PPF'd these days. Most Tesla 3 owners (early batch) I know did because the paint and finish is crappier than a 1994 Cavalier.

I have ordered cheap MF towels from Amazon and Aliexpress and they are very good.

I looked for specific GSM numbers on the towels I wanted and I just searched them. Looked for vendors who have lots of positive reviews.

When you use opti-seal are you using ONR before? Or just regular wash and then Opti-Seal. They're not kidding when they talk about synergy, it works better with ONR.

If All you want is 4-6 months of out a sealant then just use Turtle Wax Seal and Shine, It's cheaper and will delivery on the 4-6 months.

Feynlab has very good ceramic coatings for their professional line up (that we dont have access to) They even have Self healing ceramic coating.

As for the sealant I have never used it so I'm not sure how good it is but its likely pretty good. Feynlab is part of 3D Products & they also make great products.
