Before applying Beaut Beads - Flash Prep
The Paint Cleanse & Restore is excellent for getting rid of deep embedded dirt in the paint and due to the way it works with its cleaning oils, it does leave some oil residue on the surface that will need to be removed for the paint to be perfectly clean and bare, ready for the final wax or sealants you're going to use. If the paint is completely clean and bare, free from dirt, grime, contamination and oils, the wax and sealants will work a lot better, and last longer.
Flash Prep is our preparation spray that removes polishing oils, light dirt and grime and flashes off for an extremely nice and clean surface. This surface is perfect and critical for applying Beaut Beads, (as well as our Bead Machine spray selant or even a professional ceramic coating). It is not however needed for our Lazy Wax, Carnauba Body Wax or Fully Slick.
Section at a time (1/4 of a bonnet or so, the same as before), spray Flash Prep liberally, directly onto the surface, then immediately wipe it into the surface with a folded Big Softie cloth, folded to the low pile side. Once it's been wiped in adequately to remove remaining oil residue, use a separate dry and clean Big Softie cloth to remove any remaining trailing residue. Flash Prep will flash off to leave a beautiful finish, and is a very easy and forgiving product to use. Continue around the entire car using this method, but spray less product onto the paint as you go around the car, to avoid saturating your lead application cloth. Change to a fresh secondary cloth if needed.
