    Chemical Guys EZ Creme Glaze
    Zaino Clear Seal
    Chemical Guys 50/50 Connoisseur Paste Wax
    ......oooh and err...a Lambswool Wash mitt and few other little things

    Funny cos my original reason for creating the thread was to find out about sealants. I seem to have picked up few other things as well.

    I've read great things about the Zaino CS. I was a bit dubious as it is a spray on sealant, but it seems to be highly rated by both pros and enthusiasts alike.

    As for the wax, I already have P21S wax, but wanted to try something new and maybe better. It came down to a choice between either Collinte 476S/915 or the Chemical guys 50/50. From what i gathered, the Collinite 476S seems to have great durabilty, like up to about 9months. The Chemical Guys wax by sounds of it doesn't last as long, but will give car a 'wetter look'. This is fine by me as this will take me up to about October. When it comes to then I'll be getting the car ready for winter.

    I've pencilled in giving my car the once over during Easter, so may post some pics up once done.
    sounds good!! looking forward to seeing some pics once you've had a good go with that lot!

    i'm especially interested to see if the chemical guys citrus wash + gloss is any good because i'm coming to the end of my dodo juice citrus wash (excellent but expensive!) and looking for an alternative with the chemical guys stuff at top of the list!

    Looking forward to seeing the pics as well - I'm going to try some of the Collnite Wax 476s next as I seem to hear nothing but good things about it (once my freebie for the Evo sub runs out - in all fairness, I've been pretty impressed with my free Megs Cold Glass stuff).

    Also intend to from some the Bilt clay next month.

    I'm very impressed with their Blue Velvet wax, you can purchase the Supernatural in 30ml trial pots http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalo...al_30ml_1.html
    In fact Dizzle Blue Velvet and Purple Haze are Dodo Juices hard and soft waxes specifically designed for darker coloured cars, and again available in 30ml trial pots.
    If your interested in the Blue Velvet drop me a line and I'll cut some out of my pot and send it on?

    Thanks for the offer. Thats really kind of you

    i think i may pick up a tub of Blue Velvet later inthe year, when i get my car ready for winter. What is the durability like? How easy is it to apply and buff off?

    I wlways found my P21S wax quite easy to apply and buff. Shine was good, but not great. The durability was ok, but not great. By sounds of it, I should see an improvement with the CG 50/50

    IMO easy to apply and buff off with the added benefit of a total lack of white powder residue you get with standard waxes.
    I applied 2 coats of Blue Velvet wax in early Oct & its still beading although I do use Duragloss 951 Aquawax after every 2nd weekly wash,
    (twice monthly) so that could account for its longevity?

    I've used AutoGlym SRP in the past to finish the car off after a good cleaning session but that was before I found out more about doing the job properly!!

    When I get a chance I've got some Megs Clay bars and Quik Detailer, Megs Gold Class to clean, the AG SRP to seal and a tin of Collinite 476 to wax.
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........

    AG SRP isnt a sealant.. its a polish and paint cleanser. .AG EGP is a sealant.. i use it then use colly 476 on top and you get results like this!

    I use the AG EGP. I swear by the stuff....
    Just got to have a good polished base to start with and the results are awsome..
