how do you like it, I also used leather masters in the past seems like this is more geared towards older leather and leather thats in bad condition the way it's marketed.

I haven't tried it yet. I probably won't try it for a couple more weeks.

I was given this soft99 H-7 coating yesterday. It's made by the same company that makes fusso and supposedly last 1 year.

Dang the whole markets getting saturated with these new coatings nowadays I remember the fusso lasting 1 year and people praising it for it's durability, if this is anywhere near that Im sure it'll be great.

Let me know when you have time for samples, I was debating on trying the leatherique but then decided to stick to my favorite Wolfgang. I can provide you samples too it works pretty good too.

I picked up a Zephyr polishing kit to freshen up my wheels. It's been 3 years since they were last polished, so they were starting to look dull.



This was after 1 pass of the polish and cleaned off with carpro eraser (this is a must to get off all the residue)


It's obviously not as nice compared to the work that my polisher does, but for $30, I have no complaints.

Nice kit! Looking good restoring some metal. I was about to jump on a Powerball metal polishing kit similar to that onet, but figured not much metal work was done in my field.

Heres one I had to touch up by hand and my blue metal polish, had to jump up to wire brush on the inside as degreaser and polish with mf wouldn't do anything and kept it microfiber on the outside, all about the details! Makes a huge difference.

It's hard to get consistent results when working by hand. The drill attachments with a corded drill is a must have. I used a cordless Milwaukee drill to do the wheels on my SC. The finish was nice, but not as nice as these Ordens polished with a corded drill. I'll be sticking with the zephyr polish until I can find something easier/faster to work with. I was using mothers billet polish before and the zephyr is cheaper per oz, so that's a plus in it's favor.

Definitely, but it was a small tight space and working by hand was beneficial here.

I dont think its the type of product you use, its more so how you use it. This blue metal polish was almost 7 years old.

Regardless that lip is looking fabulous great job!

Dope man! Looks like someone's obsessed, but definitely not a bad brand to follow. CarPro makes some of the top products in the industry imho.

Same goes for Meguiars, Griots, and Optimum.
