    Looks great, @BB Baboonface !! :Thumbup:
    Finish Kare 1000P will also be my sealant again. Dirt and ICE will go off so easily next to the long-lasting protection and shine!
    I looooove FK1000p :OTT:

    It is great stuff for the price, still on the same tin after about 3 years too! haha!

    @jazzway Can see that "Big white" glossiness doing its job on your Jazz, looking great :Niceone:

    Still not finished the car yet, doing 4 coats on each panel with a day of curing time between each pair of applications. Did a full two bucket wash initially, then using spare moments since with ONR to wash and clay an area before applying sealant, it's taking quite a while :sweating:

    I feel your 'pain'. I did it last May and after claying i used a polish cleaner and glaze before the FK1000p. Late spring detail (Detailing - )
    And in a few weeks it's time for the winter detail here too. :sweating:
    And yes, that tin last forever, hahaha.

    Lol! Have to admit it is pretty therapeutic for me spending a bit of time detailing. Seems like a chore before starting, then actually turns out to be quite pleasant, most of the people on our street think i'm mad though!
    Saw you used wax on top of the sealant, are you going for that method again?

    People here on the street think the same about me.:Grin: But you and me do have the shiniest car in the street! :mosh:

    Yes, i did a wax over the sealant a few weeks later and although it's a great wax, easy on and off, huge tin :Wink: i won't do it again. With only 2 layers FK1000p the car stayed so much cleaner and was easier to wash than with the wax. Also the wax was attracting more dust than the sealant.
    I will only go for washing, claying, polishing, white diamond glaze and 2 layers finish kare 1000p.

    Interesting hearing your thoughts on the wax topping, you obviously don't do things by halves! :salute:

    The day didn't end to well as his lordship Frankie got hold of the Polish and ran off with it and it split open so he was doused in water to wash it out.

    Is that a good model then @Nels as Selina bought it I just kidnapped it for the day.

    Off his tongue yes.
    The worst of it was the instructions were all written in in German and it's been a good few years since I read anything so I googled and printed off the data sheet only to set the alarm bells ringing as it's highly toxic and can cause liver failure and more nasty things, so it was ring the vet plenty of water keep an eye on him ring the vets again till finally we decided he had not had too much of the stuff so he was fine.
