After seeing your videos and review, as well as others on Youtube, I had to take the chance. Tomorrow I will do a video of how well it sheets and post it. I also threw some Meguiars quick wax on the 18s and they seem to be holding steady, beading quite nicely.

Wax? Whats that?




Hands down, the BEST lsp i have EVER used. Its a sealer/wax, has all of the properties of a sealant, and contains a few different variations of carnuba as well. REALLY brings out the color, gives a nice DEEP, wet look.

Water beading is top notch, and the car is overall easier to clean.

For about 15 bucks a 9oz bottle(and figuring that roughly .5-1oz covers a car), its well worth it. Can be used on glass, and most importantly, on black plastic trim.

This FK1000p is really worth using. Lasts forever, easy to use, gives it that extra oomph and a little more protection.

Its definitely good stuff, there are a lot of pretty good products out there, thats for sure.

Next year im going to give the HD Nitro Seal a shot. Its a two part system, about 60 bucks for three ounces(OUCH) but its supposed to protect the paint for up to 18 months, and ive seen pictures of cars its been applied on, and it really makes the paint pop.

I just have to justify spending 60 bucks for three ounces of product lol.

I've been looking at the autopia.net forums and took a real good look at that 3D HD Uno/Poxy combo they have. Stuff seems very versatile and capable down to 1200, and then back to a finishing polish depending on pads used! That is definetly my next purchase. Been looking hard at the pinnacle, and possibly going back to my old favorite 1z Eniszette. The 3D stuff just seems to be the most value for the money to me.

im actually an auto collision student and my school supplies turtle wax 1 because it contains no silicones so it is body shop safe and doesnt leave oils on the car and 2 it leaves a great shine. many body shops and car guys around here also stich with the turtle paste wax. i also use eagle one wax-as-you-dry every time i wash my car
