Nope, I'm not a professional detailer. I just like trying new products whenever I can.

There are a lot of hacks that call themselves Pros. Don't need to be one in order to obtain wholesale accounts they are free with minimum 250-500 year purchase/yr I believe and theres no minimum purchase on the pricing. With all the Gyeon stuff your buying Im sure it'll pay for itself after the 2nd purchase.

I looked at their terms. It's $500 minimum a year, then I looked at my expense accounts, and I've spent exactly $521.02 in 2017 on detailing products (about 35% of that was on PFM towels). If I sign up, then it just sounds like a trap for me to spend more money every year.

I only bought all the gyeon stuff because sydtoosic was saying how great of a product cure is, then it just made me curious about the entire line. Unfortunately, I did the same thing with nanolex (which he also recommended)

If I can't figure out how to use them, then I'll ship them to you.

Thanks my car been coated with Beeds HD which is a Singapore base coating company for almost 3 yrs now. Once a month I top it with sonax detail shine and before winter hits a layer of sonax PNS. So I'm try gyeon can coat this winter. As for gyeon coating I went with Durabead one which is above the mohs itself. For the exact same price I said why not haha.. Plus it's not sold to general public either. So I'll see how it compares to the Beeds HD which has been great.

Yeah you know how it is in detailing always have to try to something new, but Ive learned to stick to my favorites and keeping it simple. Wise man once said use what you like and use it often... Give it a try, you can use the wholesale account to order anytime you want with discounts.

If I was able to follow that reasoning, then I wouldn't need to buy anything for a few years.

Well.. I was under the same situation trying out everything till I realized you really only need a few of the products to get the job done.
