    Saw the Afterglow and the vid that was on FB. So which way to go? Blower or this product?

    For me, especially on the few black parts I have I will stick to my blower but having said that, there will be times when that won't be possible. I will get some and try it. Lubricating the drying process is something I never did.

    All I used to do was glass first which got the microfibre wet for paint.

    Question, if using the blower to dry the car Afterglow is no point ?
    and if I was going to use say a quick gloss finish or wipe down wouldn't quik detailer or more so I have their Boss Gloss which is a quick detailing spray.
    Boss Gloss
    This awesome detailing spray is made for car lovers who need something super fast and easy to bring up a great shine. As it's so fast and easy to use, Boss Gloss has become the go to product for our family to use on our cars before a show or tour event. It's also ideal for a quick go over before the car show judges appear (even in the sun) or a fast spruce up before car club run. It gives a high gloss shine and leaves a lovely slick finish for the win.

    Our fastest and easiest to use detailing spray
    Gives a slick smooth finish and great show-car shine
    Water based synthetic formula that's ideal for both modern clear coats and older single stage paints
    Won't strip waxes or sealants, so it's ideal to use as a final step process
    Perfect for car shows as it cleans off light dust, road grime and fingerprints
    Built in lubrication, to help encapsulate fine dirt particles and help reduce micro scratches and swirls
    Wipes off fast and streak free, on wet or dry surfaces, even in the sun

    Next Afterglow details
    The much anticipated After Glow. It has taken us 2 years of intensive development, with close to 90 different product formulations being extensively tested to perfect it. This is now the glossiest, most protective and easiest to use product we've ever created. After Glow is a different drying aid than what you might have used before. It uses a diverse multitude of new ingredients that work together to absorb all the water straight into your Big Softie cloth, and then effortlessly buffs off to leave a brilliant, streak free shine. Now that is usually enough for most, but After Glow also leaves a lovely level of protection that can last for months after the application. We know you'll really love using this custom formula as much as we now do!

    Created for the fussiest of car fanatics who want perfect, spot free drying
    Super protective water based sealant, with mega bead porn and water sheeting technology
    Use as a fast and easy one-step product for an amazing shine and lasting protection
    For all exterior paint, glass, metal, alloy, rubber, headlights and plastic trim
    Gives essential lubrication as you dry, to further help prevent micro scratches and swirls
    Emulsifies water droplets on contact, for easy and fast drying
    Safe for regular use on waxes, sealants or modern paint protection coatings
    Can be used as often as you'd like, for a fast top up of both shine and protection
    A highly concentrated formula, only requiring 10-15ml of product per use, meaning you can do 30 to 50 cars per bottle.
    Guaranteed to leave a goofy, satisfied look on your face after the jobs all done.
    Very proudly Australian made and developed formula

    Its all getting so much filled with products over lapping each other much imo.
    I get the Afterglow punch that leaves a streak free shine plus protection BUT don't the other similar products do as well ?? like Boss Gloss for eg.
    As much as i LOVE buying more good gear for my joys I'm starting to see too much up selling and products really being similar but a different marketing spin and new packaging.
    Believe me I'm not having a go at Bowdens, this is all detailing products in general.
    I think were just becoming suckers because we love it lol....

    Yeah there is more than one person asking the same question. It seems to me that there is some overlap but afterglow, as I understand it, is the water emulsifier specifically designed for drying.

    yes agree.
    The product is formulated as such and lets face it there is countless overlap on these products.
    Get what you like or suits your needs I suppose.
    Once you have tried Afterglow look forward to your findings how it worked, if worthwhile I'll get get one.
    Perko, being we have black, even with the blower you do see some areas that leaves water blown lines - mostly the roof/bonnet being such large areas and flat compared to rest of the car.
    This is where I'm considering the Afterglow method but I reckon you can use this Boss Gloss sprayed on the big green micro towel as well.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    Dan made the Afterglow look so easy in the demonstration. Just looking for that easy operation that doesn't leave marks. Every black cars owners nightmare.

    This is my number one frustration within brands.

    Overlap and doubling up.

    Even hierarchy is hard to determine unless you default to price.

    Its incredibly hard at times to know which product is the right one because they are effectively the same or similar but different names.

    I also love this quote - paralysis analysis.
    Detailing really comes to mind on this.
    I used to rely on a few good fellow mates who were farfar more involved in this field but since we have not caught up like we used so I get all over shop with the countless options not just on products but "methods" since.
    Its like the health game, one time x amount of meat is great for you next another survey says no etcetcetc....
    This game, this method is the ants paints next someone else says no its not.
    Brand marketing presents this to sell their product mind you.
    Its just so messy drives me nuts.
    Even Dans videos mess me up at times and not his alone.
    He's doing some things that I reckon does mark the clear coat - and he's also wiping down in all directions, like wtf, whereas others say just go east west or north south which way you suits you but know what I mean.

    Like all things you might pick up some points and ignore others. It's not a right or wrong proposition.

    You can also follow the link in this video back to an earlier one that shows what they did at the dealership on delivery. Also worth watching.

    End point. There is a big difference between a review inspection and delivery inspection.

    Here is one case in point.
    Now Ian will get why I was asking where was this above post for I started watching this vid (by the way keep em coming Ian thanks) but got interrupted not watching it all at home yesterday arvo but I vivid recall at the start after he washed down the new bimmer he was leaning over the front talking about claying or not. Some good points might I add.
    One good point was why do you need buying detailing sprays when you could use the soapy water from the bucket - as I said this was a good point in saving some coin on product BUT did he use the dirty water having washed the car ?! or is it a freshly made brew ? if so I'm wrong.
    Like he warns as we know how much grit clay picks up from the paintwork but to grab the sponge from the bucket, sponge the area and squeeze so as more suds are on hand then clay away - like wtf what about the grit particles you just put on the bonnet and clay lol....
    Prior to this, compare his snow bomb application to Dans as well.

    Knowing Larry it wont be dirty water or soap.

    So with the two bucket wash method which he is using the mitt for clay purposes would be no different than if it were a continuation of washing. That mitt he is using looks a lot like a swissvax type deal and if it is it tends to hold a lot of soap.

    Just squeezing above the paint will give you the lubrication you need but keep in mind he is using some of his own products here. I would suggest you wouldn't need to make contact with the paint or if you do just light enough to shed soap.

    So with Bowden's I would try this with Nano but not the original wash because that to me was always sus on suds.

    Like Maurie what I like about Larry the most is he thinks like us. He is sort of like the Bowden's and if you email him he responds.

    Key points

    Don't clay if you don't need to. One trick you can use is put your hand inside a plastic bag instead of using fingers.
    You don't need detailer as a lube.

    It is all about touching the paint the least amount of times and for me this has resonated. Don't get me wrong. Whatever works for you works. There is no wrong or right but the more we share perspectives the more choice we have in making up our own minds.

    Let you in on another thing I have learnt.

    Where I live is very old and the water pipes are corroded. Guess what I suspect was happening when I was washing my cars?


    And lastly there is nothing wrong with taking some ideas and modifying them to suit your own requirements.

    Lets say that wasn't a fresh bucket of soap. Make a fresh bucket. You could even have a dedicated clay bucket and sponge if you wanted. Its all about thinking it through and evaluating what could go wrong.

    I would also follow the other link to the dealership inspection
