    How long do you leave it on for before buffing it off? How easy do you find it to buff off?

    Last week I did the cad in the late evening out of direct sunlight. I applied the Turtlewax sealer to 3 panels at a time and then used a wet cloth + elbow grease to get it off before finally giving it a buff with a dry cloth.

    I don't leave it on long mate...it becomes extra work otherwise. Like you, I only do 2 or 3 panels at a time, wait a few seconds to haze, then buff off using a microfibre mit. I'm going to do some machine polish paint correction fairly soon with that stuff I told you about, so will see if the sealer is easier to buff

    I still find it a pain to do after clay, polish wax etc.

    Tomorrow (depending on how the car looks when I take the cover off), I either wash + maguiars quick detailer wax thingy or, polish it all up again

    To be honest I think I'm going to work 1 panel at a time now, just apply the sealer and then just rub hard and fast before it even hazes, previously this seemed the easiest way to buff/remove it.

    Well, what can I say.

    I left the EGP on for an hour and it made such a difference.

    The difference from start to finish has been absolutely startling, having never clayed a car before and all the other applications required afterwards to say I'm pleased is an under-statement.

    Many thanks to all who've replied to this post and the advice from other posts has been invaluable.

    ive tried loads of this autoglym and megs type stuff and although they give a good initial finish there not very tough or long lasting, and very expensive..

    my mate who works in a bodyshop gave me a tub of the stuff they use.. autosmart carnauba wax, its a fraction of the price of all this autoglym/megs/turtle wax stuff and i personally have found its the best wax ive ever used!! highly recommended!
