C2V3 is brilliant in my opinion. Works really well on all colours

Sealants sit over polishes, not over a wax - they don't bond well to waxes and won't last at all.

So it should be polish then sealant, and IF you really want to you can wax over the sealant for extended protection.

If you polish the car, once you have finished buffing the polish off, the sealant can be applied straight away :-)

Pics Gary ;) it's too bloody wet down South to attempt to wash mine, gonna try that dodo juice hybrid too
I didn't take any mate as I haven't got any tyre dressing yet (it's next on my list) so it doesn't quite look how I want it as it doesn't look finished. I'd thoroughly recommend it though!
Lol @ tyre dressing. Yeah Ill order my dodo juice hybrid next week, but god knows when I'll get the opportunity to use it tough with this weather!

can you not apply a wax straight after buffing the polish off then?

AF Tripple is an AIO (All In One) polish.

It contains polish, glaze and carnauba wax so that it has a small amount of protection once applied.

Once you have applied and buffed Tripple (as any polish) you can apply a sealant OR wax on top.

You would go:

Wash>Polish>Wax

Or

Wash>Polish>Sealant (>wax on top if you want)

Hope that helps :-)

Read with interest as I am fast approaching the end of my pot of SNH and was looking to change. Have tried HD Wax along the way but keep coming back to SNH as the paintwork always still feels "slick" after a good soap.

Guess I'll be ordering another 100ml £21.20 via flubit

fantastic write up blackroc, enjoyed reading the whole thing and it completely makes sense to me.

One question i ask (sorry, bit of a detailing newbie), when a wax is coming to the end of its last and you notice the effects dropping off. Would you strip the remaining with a panel wipe or similar and apply from scratch? Or just apply a new layer over the top?

Also when carrying out a routine wash, do you use any top ups such as a quick detailer?

cheers! :mrgreen:

Apologies if this has been addressed already, which it most certainly has. I'm wondering at which stage you start the process from after a few months when you want to reseal or re wax?

If my original process was the following, would I only need to start at surface prep, eg. Car pro eraser, isopropyl alcohol after a wash?

Washing>Decontamination>cutting>polishing>surface prep>seal

If your wax is completely depleated you could strip everything back and start again with protection if you really want. If you're not topping up with Wax but using a sealant instead you should definitely strip everything off, wash and clay. But if you just want to top up the wax and have no actual paint correction to do then a simple 2 bucket wash should prepare things enough. Depends how much dirt is clinging on. You might need to do more decontamination first.
