    I wonder how this is against Duragloss 902. That stuff smells like CHERRIES.

    Forgot to stop by the store to pick this up but will try to in the AM before I wash my car and compare to Optimum.

    Have a feeling I may have a new shampoo!

    What about Swissvax soap? What do you think its effect on wax film is? Have not used it but hear it is pretty good as long as your car is not too dirty.

    I checked my local Pep Boys and they don't carry the 3M line. I have seen 3M products around where I live, but I can't remember where I saw it.

    Maybe it was Advance or AutoZone but I know I have seen it somewhere oh well they are all bunched together on the same block so hope to find it and try it. Like I said I am running low on Opt so might as well try something new.

    901 = Small size DG shampoo
    902 = Large size DG shampoo

    Both same formula

    OT: I'll have to keep this stuff in mind once I am done with my stockpile of shampoo

    I'll have to try it out. My local NAPA carries the whole 3M car are line. I've been pretty successfull with Megs gold class shampoo (foam lance)/ Lusso Auto Bathe (in bucket) combo. Btw lusso smells like a piƱa colada lol

    i only ever use shampoos as clay lube, one of my fav's is Zymol Auto Wash or CG maxi suds so looking forward to seeing what 3M is like as a lube.

    A small amount mixed with water is all you need, much cheaper and just as effective for a clay lube instead of a qd.

    The power of a trustworthy forum review, marketing gold for any company!

    Phil carries a few 3M goodies maybe he can get this in too.

    how do you rate this shampoo and the protection of crystal rock?

    CR only lasts about 2 months on my cars and then the beading goes down.

    Is this shampoo better?

    With vintage and clear i get about 4-5months protection but cr doesnt like clear as i can see

    If Paul Dalton himself raves about it, I'll take his word for it. Bt the way, have you tried SV auto bath? I'm sure it work very well with all SV waxes.

    Pinnacle shampoo is nice, but is pricey...3M shampoo is a must try, in this case...

    Only 2 months? How long are you leaving CR on the panel for before buffing off? Are you using Cleaner fluid before hand?

    I get at least 6-12 months out of one layer of CR, tried and tested on cars in my unit, most of which are track day cars and get a lot of use.

    The 3M shampoo is currently my favourite shampoo now, works fine with CR as well!

    Kind Regards
