Collinte for me as well..
Been looking at this link and Collinite 476S is great stuff, I use it over a base layer of Klasse body cleaner. One layer of Klasse then maybe 2/3 layers of Collinite over the summer time. I always wash the car with Chemical Guys Glossworkz product it makes the car shine well and it still looks good now even after winter. Soon time for clay day and it all starts again for me. Have fun WAXIN get in the zone.
For Silver I love the sealant look over a wax. If your paint is good and you've clayed and cleaned it prior, give Werkstat Acrylic Jet Trigger a try. I love it!
For the ultimate shine I'm impressed with the Menzerna polishes with 3M rotary pads on bmw paint.
The problem with silver is that it doesnt show "depth" like other colours do.
To make the most of silver you really need to start at the beginning making sure that the surface you are applying your expensive wax on is as good as it can be.
A machine polish will get the base to work from but if you arent into machine polishing then start of with a clay product. Clay is good for lifting bonded contaminents from your paintwork. Run your fingers along the lower part of the doors, if its rough you need to clay it leaving it feeling smooth like glass.
A good kit to get you started is the Meguiars Clay Kit then the Meguiars 3 Stage Kit, granted, the 3rd step Carnuba Wax isnt the best but step 1 and 2 are actually good product to start with. Replace step 3 with a Collinite/Dodo Juice/Zymol/Poorboys wax.
Its all in the preperation. Chucking pricey wax on a washed car is a false economy.
Totally agree with Alan, you need to make sure the paintwork is perfectly prep'd first to get it looking good, wax is about protection..
Collinite is fantastic wax though, i've tried a few and found it to be head and shoulders above most others!
I think though to get a silver car looking great you'll need to machine polish it, menzerna all the way for that job!
trying to get the car mopped this weekend, and ive bought some Collinite too, so well give it a go for fast show, and see how it comes out
Collinite for the waxing , yeah, but what about the polishing?
Collinite all the way...
