Looks good! I'm jealous, there's hard water spots allover my windows and black trim, as well as the Chrome trim across the back of the car, that no one can seem to get off. I doubt anyone but me notices it, but looking at how clean yours is made me a little jealous.
The water where I live is extremely hard. At my job we have a 2015 Ford Explorer and the whole exterior is wrecked due to hard water spots. Its so bad they wont even come out now (granted I havent tried as hard to clean it as I do my own vehicle) but we find drying it is a big piece. If they arent to the permanent stage I'm sure theres a few products out there that might be able to help. I've always dried my vehicle and wax it often (detailer, quick wax, actual waxing, etc.)
NickyB I'm glad to see someone who is more OCD than me......we need to form some sort of Explorer Sport OCD Owners Sub Forum!
I also just discovered the Meguires Ultimate Cut M105 myself and it is nothing short of amazing when removing scratches, especially on Shadow Black.
I'm really interested in the new product you're trying for the plastic trim, Sonax Plastic Care, up here it rains a lot and when I detail eventually the rain shows run marks all down. the plastic trim. It would be nice to have a product that soaks into that trim rather than sit on top and get washed off by rain.
Granted its only been only about a week but I have washed it once since then, and we had two rain storms since then. So far the trim still looks great. Its faded slightly but nothing compared to how the Ultimate Black usually fades. I'll post a pic in a little bit. Still haven't tried their wheel cleaner or bug and tar remover yet.
I have a clay bar "disc" by Chemical Guys that attaches to a random orbital that I use. Cuts down time tremendously!!! It's harder to use in tight spots, but it does great on the doors and hood. Definitely recommend if you hate clay baring like me lol and its reusable (which is also great if you happen to drop it)!!!
I'd like to get that someday. Clay baring is miserable in my opinion. More money than I want to spend at the moment though.
