Big fan of the Bowden's Own products and they're an Australian company.
Found this by chance as I don't get catalogues in the mail.
Green sucker …..
Anyone tried the Happy Ending? Any review? :p
A few guys on the M-Lite AU/NZ facebook group have recommended it
Yep, I bought Happy Ending the last time Repco had 30% off. I was very surprised with the results. It was super easy to apply and it actually is slick and gives awesome water beading properties. It's by far the easiest way to apply a hydrophobic coating to a car in my experience. I've tried countless products (including detailing sprays, waxes etc) and this is just too easy to pass up! If you enjoy keeping your ride looking schmick but can't be bothered with waxing, this is for you 😃👍
The usual flow for my car wash goes like this: Use foam cannon with Bowdens Own Snow Job (loosens and softens dirt stuck on the car) > 2 bucket wash (to reduce scratching) > Happy Ending Foam > Dry with their Green Sucker Cloth (super absorbent cloth, highly recommend!)
Fully slick is pretty good for a nice shine. Also smells really nice too.
Better off getting the 5L, better bang for buck.
$16.09 for the 750ml. Have that much sealant thought I'd better just wait and use what I already have. Fully Slick is meant to be good. Will probably try it next time.
Sandro has just done a video comparison with Slick and other products. Also he does some great instructional video's on car detailing
Can highly recommend fully slick. Great product.
Thanks OP, needed a new mitt as my last el cheapo fell apart in my hand last wash. Love their stuff, just spend $100 bucks on some other bits and pieces too
I like the Boss Gloss, great drying aide and leaves a nice shine
Bowden's Own; quality products, great Aussie company.
Can anyone recommend a product to apply to exterior black plastic and rubber to bring them back to black?
edit: nvm found this: https://www.bowdensown.com.au/guides/plastic-trim-cleaning-p...
Give it a couple of months (Maybe less!) as they will be releasing a black trim restoration product that looks awesome
Thanks for the tip, will do!
Chatted to a guy at the Meguiar's stand at Summernats and he said to just use glass cleaner. This was primarily to remove excess polish from the plastic though.
Keep an eye on Bowden's Own's Instagram, they constantly post teasers in their stories. They have a strong snow foam, a trim restorer and a tyre shine applicator coming, among others things.
I found a Bowden's value pack for $79 at Autobarn Macgregor: https://www.autobarn.com.au/cc07300. It was a managers special so even better value than the advertised price of $90.99. Great if you are looking to try a few of their products or as a starter pack.
Anyone tried their three way and claying rubber?
Yes. The Three Way works well to react with iron contaminants, just don't use it on bare metal or paint chips, as it will start to oxidise it. Use it with the claying rubber to remove other contaminants and strip old sealants.
