***Copied you all in; as this seemed to be quite a popular topic !
Clio might be cleaned tomorrow if she's lucky So very early this morning i tackled the wife's. Literally.
Anyway. Take one freshly snow-foamed, cleaned and waxed Punto:
And one very dry and never prepped (By me) tyre:
Apply one coat of CarPro PERL applied undiluted from the bottle with a sponge:
Allow to dry and apply second coat (Could hardly notice any difference here):
Allow to dry and spot the difference:
And close up of split-line:
Finish the other half.....job done ! And the sun even appeared for the last two piccies...
Looks great IMO. Shine without too much 'fake' gloss. Will be interesting to see what the finish is like once dry for a few hours (Feels fairly dry to the touch after only 1/2 hour TBH); and of course how it holds up in the coming days / weeks:
