    Seems like I saw something in a thread about someone using distilled water and Echo2 or Hydro2 to make their own detail spray - was I imagining that?

    I can’t answer that but @SouthBoundSteve recommended finish kare #425 to me and it works amazing.

    Just mix some distilled water with Optimum No Rinse (ONR) per the instructions on the bottle.

    Thanks for the input; I'm trying to find someone who will ship some FK425 for a reasonable price.

    What that was is dubbed Merlin’s Magic Elixir. 10 parts distilled water, 1 part Echo 2 and 1 part Reload Spray sealant. It’s a q.d. with a kick. The guy who came up with it is a professional Detailer in Florida

    I'm assuming this would work over Hydro2?
