Some tips below:
1) Shake it well before you start applying. It should become really liquid from whatever stage it had been.

2) Apply with moist (not wet) sponge applicator uniformly.

3) Apply a very thin layer and work panel by panel (Panel1-Panel2-Panel1-Panel2 method).

4) Allow it to haze (should haze in approximately 10 mins if you manage to apply it really thin). If you allow it dry longer then it gets tough, TIP: Pump some iron and pushups and then start buffing.

5) Buff it off with a good microfibers (the one supplied with Collinite are also reasonably good).

Do post the pre& post pics.
All the best!

Useful info thanks. Does the sponge applicator waste a lot of the collinite?
I also read in this thread that one has to polish and apply collinite soon therafter, is that so? If so, pl suggest a VFM polish.

I would rather say moistened sponge (being totally synthetic it doesnt absorb anything) waste's least of the wax as compared to cotton terry or microfibres.
After the application use the residual from the sponge to apply it to your alloys or front windshields, so effectively nothing is wasted.

OK so what I have gathered from this thread is that
car shampoo wash > clay > polish > sealant > insulator wax (colliniite 845)

Besides Megulairs clay (2000/- odd from Sanjay) any other brand available easily in Mumbai?

Which polish is recommended?

What is a sealant and which product is available easily?

Recently bought a bottle of Collinite 845 and used it to seal the wax applied to the car's body after polishing. The initial pictures are attached. Will post the Final pics in a day or two when i complete the detailing of whole car.

Guys,

Good news, Automall has started taking orders and delivering collinite products.

I paid 1223 INR to get it from BBI, the same costs 905 from auto-mall in case I pick on my own. Iam just eager to see all the offerings they would make, as of now most of them are "COMING SOON"

Products - Auto-Mall.in

Automall Seems a very good option for my next purchase. Just waiting for some reviews on buyers experience. I really appreciate the way they have kept prices close to the US ones.
Rs. 1040 for the Collinite 476 seems a steal at that price and that too including shipping. Hope they add some basic Meguiars products at competitive prices.

@samsag12,
The results look promising.
Would like to see some more good quality pics. Detailing dark colours is always a satisfying job done well.
Please upload some more pics and don't forget to details the rim/alloys and the car shoes as well.

I have a query. I have done 3M paint protection coating for my new car. Can I go for the steps Clay-->polish--> Wax ? My next coating is on due and will there be any effect of Waxing/on next coating? After reading the reviews I am tempted to experiment with Collinite for my red Punto

The 3M paint protection would have done the same thing clean, ;polish and seal. If you have done it recently i would suggest to save the money. If you are still tempted run your finger across the car after a wash if it feels smooth without any rough feeling then just do the Collinite waxing the claying and polish will just remove the 3M treatment.

When running the finger over the car body to get a better feeling borrow some cling film and cover your finger or really thin polythene(good stuff not the carry bag kind) to get a better touch feedback.

Thanks sreedotk. I wash the car daily(now became part of my routine) but I could see swirl marks in a reflected light. I hope this will go in second 3M coating and then I will go for waxing.

Hey Guys, a small query from my side.

what i understand from here is that it is a insulator and it should be apply after wax? And the process is-
Wash > Polish/clay > Wax > Collinite

Please correct me if i am wrong

You can directly use collinite 845 after polishing!

More like Wash > Clay > Polish > Collinite845

And then layer it after 24hrs of curing for even coverage!
