SPOILER ALERT: This is my new favorite product from the @Stay Fresh Car Care lineup. Every single one of you has a use for this, ESPECIALLY if you have a GT or Rallye with a gloss black front fascia.

When i got Stay Fresh's newsletter stating that they had a bunch of new products out, I had to give this Hydro Gloss a try. Initially I thought this may be a replacement/alternative to their Brilliance Glaze, but after a few emails I found that it is more along the lines of their Quick Detailer. It literally says on the bottle that its perfect for pre-car show preparations and last minute extreme shine.

I test tried it on my side mirrors (which are bright silver metallic) and it made the paint texture and lines pop like crazy. It also gave my paint that "fresh clear coat" look, so hyped! I will use it on my entire car next time as my last and final product in my detailing procedure, so hopefully I will get an even better shine once i get a new coat of sealant on the paint.

BUT, here is what I was most excited about with this new product: not only does it deliver a RIDICULOUS shine and sleek feeling (even more extreme than right after applying their Armor Sealant), it also had a second, even more important (in my opinion) effect: it made almost every single nick, ding, and mark on my black Rallye fascia completely disappear!!

I drive on I-95 80% of the time so my front end takes heavy "daily driver" type damage. When I would look at my front fascia, it was riddled with little white/grey marks and divits where rocks and other debris hit while cruising at highway speeds. Washing, polishing, and waxing had little effect on the damage...

BUT After applying 2 coats of Hydro Gloss, the front end of my car looks brand new. I don't know how it does it, but it seems to saturate all of the "white marks" so they are much less apparent and fade into the original paint color. Some of the marks even reverted completely back to the original gloss black.

It's as easy to apply as a quick detailer, only a few seconds per area. Just simply spray it on the surface in question, wipe it in a back and forth motion with a microfiber cloth, flip the cloth over and wipe off the excess. If you don't want to mist or you only want it on a certain part of your car just pour a little on a microfiber cloth, wipe it in a back and forth motion, then find a dry part of the cloth and wipe off/buff the excess.

I even gave it a shot on my headlights and it seems to give them a shinier, smoother look.

Dont get confused, this product does not fill in the dings/marks or fix them completely, but it definitely does a great job at masking them and bringing the front fascia back to almost brand new visually.

I just used it for the first time yesterday and didnt think to take pictures, so I am unsure how long the product lasts and I do not have any before and after shots yet, but the next time I wash my car I will snap a few for you guys to check out.

I was actually going to get my review of this up soon! I received this the other day and it is awesome! I applied it and I swear it was like I just waxed my car. The feeling was just like it, and the shine and finish was just perfect.

did you prefer the mist top or did you just pour it on a cloth?

I found it actually worked better without the mist top. much easier to use and a much deeper shine.

I used the mist top and it came out pretty good for big areas. When I was going to smaller areas i sprayed it onto the clothe because the wind was blowing it everywhere and I didn't want the little spots anywhere lol

Ugh, stop it you guys. I have an addiction and this isn't helping. lol
What does an extremely shiny car have to do with your bacon "issue"? ;) But seriously, I don't think any part of my car has ever been as shiny as that fascia up there! Perhaps it's because I just don't have the patience to detail a car properly.

I didn't get a good angle either. I washed my car and uploaded pics once before and it's even more reflective! I think it was due to the sun and lighting in the two different pics. It was slightly cloudy in the pic above and wasn't a full blue sky.
