    Iv been reading rave reviews about this stuff,so iv got some on its way to me.

    How long do you leave it on for,before you buff it off.Iv been told 1-2 minutes.also 20 minutes and many other variations.I dont want to leave it on so long that its a nightmare to buff off.

    Can anyone whos used this give me a sensible curing time.

    Many thanks

    I have used Colly on my car several times now.

    I do one panel, then another, and then go back to the first panel and buff to a deep shine. Then do another panel with wax and go back to the 2nd one to buff to a shine and continue that way for the rest of the car.

    I think a good rule of thumb is to wipe your finger on the wax after application, it can be buffed when you get a powdery residue. If it still smears, then it needs to be left longer to cure.

    Hope that this helps.

    It depends what kit you have mate! I tend to do the full car and go back over with a slightly damp microfibre cloth, or a quick spritz of quick detailer and a wipe always works. Don't put it on in direct sun either! You will prob need bloody sand paper to remove it!lol

    A cracking wax mate!!!
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    Just for your information Collinite 476s is a wax/sealant hybrid.
    It doesn't take long to cure on the paint and if left too long, becomes an absolute nightmare to remove cleanly. One panel at a time is my solution but the two panel/ back to first, is a suitable method.

    If you leave it on too long and it's hard to remove, reapply more wax and buff straight off.
