Crappy pics but freshly washed and Rejex'd





Rejex is very cool stuff. So simple, so easy and works so well. Now, if only I could get off my lazy ass to actually clay bar both cars before putting it on.

Beautiful!

So, does that Rejex stuff bond okay if applied over swirl fillers?

That's the only thing that's making me stick with carnauba for now... but the staying power of a polymer is looking more attractive these days, given how utterly filthy one week of winter weather can make a northeast-residing car. The salt seems to be eating wax off very efficiently as well.

To answer your question...I don't know. The only things these cars have had is whatever kind of wax or polymer the dealer put on the wagon for delivery and each car had one prior application of Rejex back in May. Despite a few washes at the dealership, the wagon doesn't have any swirl issues (you have to look for them in the right light to be able to see any). Neither car has been washed much since May...I think the last time I washed either of them was in August (but the wagon was washed twice at the dealer since then). Water stopped beading on the decklid, roof and hood of the RX-8 in September or October. Water was still beading some on the wagon's roof and hood.

It makes the cars shiny and it's very quick and easy to apply and remove. If I was a little more nethused about cleaning the cars, they'd get more coats more often and I'm sure that I'd be very happy with them. What is cool, is that bug splatter, birdcrap and dirt is mostly a hose off affair for the first few months after application. It probably needs to be applied more frequently than some other products, but it's so easy that it's not a big deal.

Sounds good. But my sedan's paint was brutalized by an L.A. detailer at one point, and needs something to fill the swirls. P21S polish ("gloss enhancing paintwork cleaner") and wax have worked well. If I knew that Rejex would work over some 3M IHG or something similar, I'd probably switch.

What do you have to lose by trying? Aside from some extra time to start over if it doesn't do what you want...
