It's the same product. Menzerna is huge in Europe, sort of like their version of Meguiar's. Jescar is the company that distributes Powerlock and other Menzerna products here in North America. I...

Or you could use a couple of layers of a sealant like Jescar Powerlock or FK1000P.
The car would then be easy to clean and you wouldn't have to deal with the cover on, cover off, repeat scenario,

Chemical Guys makes a heavy duty water spot remover - I've never tried it. Ascetic acid / vinegar works. Chrome polish.

As for prevention, I'd go some sort of sealant - most anything'll work. ...

The pc 7424 and 7336 are the same machine, exactly. Same motor, same dimensions. Only the counterweight and plate differ but you can purchase different counterweights too. I have the 7336 and...

I can't see a whole lot of white there so it looks like it's just very light clearcoat damage.

I'm still a huge Powerlock fan but the experimentation bug just won't go away.

The spots are very small, more like some sort of overspray rather than small areas of the leather flaking off. I'd expect leather flaking to be much larger spots and much more irregular in shape. ...

Good question.
With the shop doing it, you have recourse if the job fails within a year or so and 220 seems reasonable so I'd go that route. Heck, I can spend that much on wax easy!

It'd probably be fine but at 23 bucks for 8 oz, it's a little pricey. That's 23 USD and I'm in Canada so the 23 USD = 187.52 CAD. OK, I'm exaggerating a bit but not by much. The point is, it's way...

On trim, and in the dry times (summer), it'll last 6 - 8 weeks easy. You'll sort of forget about it once it's applied because it holds it's look so long. Winter and rain, it lasts a bit less of...

That's the stuff. That liter will make a bit more than a US gallon at a 4:1 mix (3.78 l = 1 usg)
No matter how you mix it, it'll last a long time.

I've tried Black Wow and liked it. Like you said, a bit pricey and a bit oily.

I haven't tried any of the more permanent ones but my newest goto for trim is CarPro PERL.

You're not the only guy looking for Cerium Gray. Nobody seems to handle/have it so, you're going to have to do a bit more work.

Ouch, that looks nasty.
You can minimize the colour (I'm Canadian) change easily but the texture repair will be way more complicated. Fix the white and the texture might not be noticeable at all. ...

I'd be really interested in seeing a pic of Frau Putzer's Civic. Any possibility of a photo? And thanks for the graphic description, I'm still chuckling.
