Sun Ray is a ready to use product, so no mixing is needed. Do not add water as it will separate and ruin the entire container’s contents. To use Sun Ray, simply spray Sun Ray onto a Foam Tire Dressing Applicator or directly onto the surface, then wipe over after 5-10 minutes to remove any excess dressing. For tires, we suggest spraying Sun Ray onto one of Gator’s Foam Tire Dressing Applicators and then wipe Sun Ray directly onto the tire instead of spraying it onto the surface. This method is best for preventing the dreaded “slinging” effect. It is also suggested that you allow at least 15 minutes of drying time before driving to allow Sun Ray to set in to the surface.
