    I would imagine that does pretty much the same job as blackhole, and is similar to srp only aimed at darker colours, were talkin lsp here mainly good quality carnuba waxes

    just to make a point beading with sn(blue car) and beading with collinite 476s(red car) is very similar as is finish, so how do i warrant £65 on sn?

    fk1000p after lp.


    fk1000p beading


    i would also suggest megs 16#paste wax, great looks and durability. and probably one of the cheapest that punches well above it's price.

    thread was actually about waxes, although fk sealant almost fits into the catagory,but from what i understand there is nothing to choose between that and collinites 476!

    Hi MarK,

    After reading your very interesting and informative thread it seems I am a scene wax user as I have a pot of Blue Velvet,
    which until now I've been pleased with the results!

    I'm not about to bin the blue velvet but am now thinking of using in conjunction with pb black hole,
    which I assume is used after between washing and waxing?

    Last year I applied a couple of coats of blue velvet to my Jet Black(668) paintwork and in conjunction with an every
    2nd wash application of Duragloss Aquawax was still beading nearly 5 months later along with a deep gloss shine

    I've only recently got into detailing etc & am still very much a n00b. I read about dodo wax & thought I'd give it a go seeing as I have never waxed my car before.

    I washed then polished with SRP using my new silverline polisher...then waxed with dodo juice rainforrest rub.

    I personally though it was great...smooth to apply & buff off it left my paintwork looking glossy & wet & some quality beading when it did rain.

    My only quibble would be the price £30 for a potbi know it'll last for pretty much ever but when you compare to natty paste & chemical guys etc for £13-£15.

    Smelt nice though
    n00b

    I'm not knocking anyone for using dodo just imo theres better out there for the money but anyone whos happy with it,good for you. I just had to experiment after seeing and reading all the hype, and the only way for me to fairly and totally honestly gain an informed opinon is to actually have a go with said products, theres some other products i really want to try as well, one being raceglaze55 another being zymol glasur
