    Put Carlack Sealant and P21S wax on today as all its had up until now is a basic wash. For once I actually want it to rain so I can see what the beading is like :arco:

    Showing nearly 3k on the clock and had no problems with the DPF so far. Really pleased generally with the car :icon_thumright:

    I thought the carlack was a wax-type treatment in itself.
    So aren't you just putting wax on top of wax?

    nothing wrong with double protection, although the cost implications might scare a few people

    Thanks.

    Bowfer - The carlack is a cleaner and sealant in one. I bought it mainly for its durability over the winter months. It makes a good base for applying the wax to afterwards aswell. The P21S on top seems to add a bit more depth and wet look to the paint.

    cleanyourcar.co.uk do a good Der Wunder Towel Trio package which is what I used for the 1st time this weekend. The drying towels are excellent.

    £8.95 for a 300ml bottle which I thought was quite small but it turns out I've not even used a quarter of the bottle doing the whole car! You put a very thin coat of it on with a damp pad. A tiny amount of it seems to go a long way!
