HD Dress: Gloss Adjustable Exterior Dressing:

Posted by on December 2, 2013 in Detailing Made Simple | 0 comments

Introducing HD Dress. An exterior water based dressing designed to shine, darken & protect exterior non-painted porous surfaces including, tires, textured trim & engine compartments. This dressing doesn’t sling, is not greasy and is very easy to work with.
2 things that I love about HD Dress is the Bubble Gum scent and its ability to allow the user to alter the level of shine. From extra shiny to a satiny mat look. 1 uniform coat will deeply darken and give a great shine. 2 coats create a shiny high wet look. Gently wipe and with a towel and adjust the level of gloss.

Apply to your choice of applicator. In this case I’m using the 3D dressing block. No need to over apply the product. Initially just enough to coat most of the key areas of the applicator. Once applied, add 3-4 more drops as needed. A little goes a long way.

To alter the gloss, take a scrap cotton or Microfiber towel and lightly wipe:

Here is the difference from Shiny (9 o’clock to 12 o’clock) to semi-matt (12 o’clock to 3 o’clock)
