i put one on yesterday and i think i'm gonna put on some more later today. am i wasting my time?
A lot of people think layering carnuba is a waste. I don't layer, but if you do, wait 24 hours to do so.
You can layer paste wax, but since liquid waxes need a solvent or other similar carrier to stay in liquid form (usually some form of petroleum distillates), you can't really layer liquid waxes since the carrier will remove most of the previous layer of wax.
2 coats of S100, applied 24 hours apart should be sufficient.
while you're in my thread
what would be a good combo for a good long lasting wax job? some other sort of wax and then S100 on top of it?
how long does S100 seem to last? it's raining right now so i'm feeling like i cleaned my truck for 4 hours yesterday for no reason.
If you wanted something super long-lasting, try Collinite's Insulator wax, you can top that with S100. The S100 won't last as long as the Collinite, only about 3 months.
where can i get it?
what lasts 3 monthes? the collinite? or the S100?
i just want to get a decent coat on before winter
s100 lasts only about 2 months in the Texas Summer sun though..
ar at lest that was the case w/ my Harley F150 this summer.
The S100 lasts roughly 3 months on my car (I live in NY). Collinite lasts longer, not sure how much longer though. We use it on our fire apparatus, the chief insists that it's the "best wax money can buy." It'll last awhile, but S100 will give it that "wet" look you've seen in pictures on here.
actually 3 monthes is pretty good for what i need. if anything, i'm sure the weather will cooperate enough for me to get at least one more coat on there before the snow starts
If 3 months is fine, then just use the S100.
Someone on Autopia tried using S100 on top of Collinite and he had some hazing issues.
A better idea would be to use a polymer like Final Polish (in product sticky #2) or Winner's Choice Finishing Creme (I'll have to find the web address later). Both last about 6 months and look pretty good on their own. Top with S100 and instant depth.
Yeah, I didn't know about the hazing issues and for some reason I forgot all about the Final Polish. I think he'll be alright with just the S100, he thinks 3 months is good protection.
heres another question for you guys
i used meguiar's (sp?) "Deep Crystal system Paint Cleaner" after the clay magic clay bar last sunday, and the topped it off with a coat of S100 but it just wasn't as "wet" looking as all the pics people have been posting
i'm waxing front to back (like wind flowing over the car....i read that somewhere on here...) is there another polish i should try before i throw the S100 on there?
Meguiars Deep Crystal System is for the average consumer who isn't very picky. Using Meguiars #9 Swirl Remover and #7 Show Car Glaze (or preferrably, if you can find them, #3 Machine Glaze or #81 Hand Polish) then use S100, I think you will be a lot happier.
where can i find this stuff???? i never see any meguiar's number ANYTHING at any parts stores around me
on a side note: i just ordered some vanilla moose
If you just ordered the Vanilla Moose, you can use that in lieu of the Meguiar's #7.
i need to find a place to order the #9 swirl remover now...
how about vanilla moose, poorboy's sealant, then the s100?
It's a great combo. I just used this combo recently on a dark blue accord and it had great depth. I'm waiting to see what durability. I'll probably put a layer of #16 on it before winter. I've had great durability with #16.
I've had great luck with #16 and then a layer of S100. Looks fantastic and lasts fairly long with the shitty industrial fallout we have here in London. My Poorboys EX should be here tomorrow or thursday. I can't wait!
Me too. Beads like a madman too. Also works well over NXT, but like with EX-P, you should wait a day to let it cure before applying #16.
