I think a meet is on the cards :-):-). trust me we will sort your paint.
Of course, the offers there. Just need Zodiac to get in touch.Originally Posted by CreamPuff:511932
Hi Everyone just thought i'd give a quick update as things stand at the moment.
Firstly and with sincere gratitude for the offer of sorting my car out i would like to thank Rapport, However and i mean this with the greatest of respect to the guy i am very capable of sorting the mess and will post pics of the finished article.
Thanks again tho , it was a very kind offer and had i not had 26 years in the trade i would have bitten your hand off.
Secondly my original point regarding the problem of baked in calcium/mineral spots when using NXT2 as opposed to Dodo juice Blue Velvet ( which unfortunately i had run out of ) has led me to investigate this problem further.
In my opinion ( and as i have said from the start of this thread ) i believe NXT2 was unsuitable for my cellulose paint and has exacerbated the normal unstable nature of the paint ( made softer ) due to the volatile / aggressive solvent used in it and this has made the paint more prone to etching of calcium/mineral marks. particularly for those in hard water areas such as myself.
I'm sure were all familiar with the word petroleum distillates in waxes but how many of us realize that those petroleum distillate solvents can vary in strength....in the same way that paint can have an aggressive basecoat solvent and 1k synthetic will have a weaker solvent very similar to oily white spirit.
I am aware that all waxes carry solvents but it is the aggressiveness ( hopefully lack of ) Quality and suitability for my type of finish that i have called into question with NXT2.
Its worth pointing that out that on a hard durable 2K finish an aggressive solvent based wax can assist in creating a lustrous shine and vibrant colour without softening the paint or lacquer surface.
Ok so how volatile and aggressive is the solvent in NXT2 , yes i know it has a warning of combustion on it but just HOW aggressive and combustible is it when compared to Dodo juice blue velvet. The very wax i had been using prior to NXT2 with no mineral etching.
Lets set fire to a small amount of each and see.
Firstly the NXT2.
Now tho Dodo juice Blue velvet ( my last scrapings ).
Try as i did the Dodo would not burn and once solidified was good to use again, unlike the NXT2
I'm not trying to stir up a hornets nest here and hope it isn't percieved that way.
Me , i'm going to keep the heavy combustibles in the fuel tank ......certainly where my paint type is concerned.
I'm not sure what this proves? NXT has kept my car shiny and smooth for the past 6 or so years...so what if it burns...my car isn't on fire?
That looks like NXT 2.0 in paste form. I wonder how liquid form would do under that test as there's no flammable warning on that version. Maybe NXT 2.0 in liquid would be more suited for your paint? Just a thought...
