Default Re: Most durable wax I have encountered - Collinite 845

Slightly OT, but is there a separate thread that summarizes how to wax? I mean, the whole sequence of some of the reliable brands to be used (Jopasu, Shampoo, Pre-wax, Clay Bar and then the actual wax)?
I read somewhere that Eagle One has a no rinse shampoo, not similar to ONR but an actual shampoo that does not need to be rinsed.

You need to search this thread -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ing-guide.html

To summarize -
clean dust - wash - clay - wash (optional to clean clay residue) - rubbing compound (depending on paint condition) - sealant - wax

BTW, taking care of the tire will complete and make your car beautiful. A detailed car, clean and wet looking tire with cleaned wheel well compliment the hard work done on the car exterior body.

C845 applied properly easily lasts more than 1-2 car washes, provided quality car shampoo is used and not any detergent/washing powder to wash clothes. It's not that as a car owner we use washing powder like s.excel, ariel ... to wash car but one has to make sure what the local car washing centre is using.

Waxed my car with Collinite 845 on last Sunday. On Sunday, the water was beading well. My car is parked in the open and its raining properly in Mumbai. Noticed the beading to be significantly reduced from Monday itself. Is this common or is the Mumbai rain causing the Wax to be ineffective?

Other users, can you share your experience with Collinite in Mumbai kind of rains?

I had washed, clayed, polished black car and then finally topped it with Collnite nearly 40 days back [In Pune]; last 2 weeks i was in Mumbai.. staying at Resort next to the sea.. the car did not get washed in my entire stay and was used everyday between the resort and office through rain and finally got a wash this sunday.. the water still beaded a bit.. i am quite impressed with the product

More than Collnite i am actually impressed with FinishKare as a daily detailer !!

I want to source ONR car wash. Auto-mall website is down and the listing is unavailable in ebay. Any idea where I can procure this? Buying online would be convenient.

I sourced a 1 Pint can of Collinite 845 through a friend from the US, but he lost the applicator. Where can I source one from?

Using a microfibre cloth to apply the wax leads to a lot of wastage.

You may be able to get one from Sanjay. Else, use a simple sponge powder puff or disc. When I got my first lot there was no sponge in the pack, so I used a small sponge disc (about 4-5" in dia).

Here's a link to the Meguiar Applicator sponge pads, have bought a pack & can vouch for the quality, great product & seller too.

For cheaper option, try this http://www.autofresh.in/washing-spon...20-97810718885

Hope this helps.

That's a great idea. I will ask my wife to pick one or flick it from the dressing table.

Thanks for the link samsag12. A pack of two at a lesser price would have been a no brainer.

My colinite 845 was delivered today with applicator pad and a towel plus a perfume free gift. What I want to know is that will be shortly taking delivery of a black cruze- when do I need to use this product? Immediately or wait for some time as the car will come with teflon coating.

First of all congrats on the 166PS Cruze Rocket.

Secondly there is nothing called Teflon coating on cars. Its just a marketing gimmick by dealers to fool customers to milk more money from them.

845 is one of the most durable wax even better than Teflon gimmick, why go in for Teflon. Mostly cars these days remain in stockyard for long and given amount of time, paint gets cured to the surface. So you can wax the car as soon as it arrives. Or you could give a months gap after purchase to go in for waxing, so as to have fresh paint cured to the surface.

Have a go though the 3 links provided in the following post. Should help you out in detailing.

Link.

Check with Sanjay from Bringing Best Impex - Reliable seller. Send across a mail or call him directly. Details available in 'Contact Us' section of http://www.bringingbest.com/

Mods : I am, in no way associated with the above mentioned seller, except the fact that I have purchased from him a couple of times. Just quoting for reference.
