The colour is fine and regarding the reason behind this colour I believe it's wax in its pure or basic form.

Notorious, did Gyro products have importer's stickers? If not, then those products are in the same league as the offerings in Lajpat/ Karol Bagh/ In & Out's. Anyhow we shouldn't worry, we've Turtle Wax. Moreover come to Kashmere Gate, different shops having identical F1 products in stocks and these guys supply it to the entire NCR.

Congrats Sohail. Kashmere Gate is the hub for F1 products and Waxpol, don't know about other brands and moreover, Philips bulbs are also available.

I wanted to know whether the Liquid Wax and Spray Car Wax, which i assume requires less effort to apply, are they good or is the Waste Paste in small tins the best?

Liquid Wax - Best finish and long lasting protection with less work - (keeping Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0 in mind)


Paste Wax - Best/good finish and long lasting protection (but do only if you are really muscular!)
(keeping Turtle Wax hard Shell Shine Wax in mind!! Oh it was a real pain to get it off!)

Maintaining wax coat between 'proper' waxing sessions - Spray Wax (its not a replacement to your proper wax)

Note - If you time the drying of paste wax perfectly, then you wont have to work that hard to get it off(as in wiping off the paste wax just before it dries) + you also wont get those annoying powdery stuff etc.

The thing I like about liquid wax is that its not necessary to time the drying! + comes off easily even if you keep it there for 15-20mins!

did you buy this from 20north? boy they are getting rich in that case
be careful pal- UC is strong and used only for removing stubborn scratches and swirls- since your car is new, why will you need that?

I have given Collnite liquid wax 845 for my Fabia , and it was very easy to apply and polish.
I have given one coat and it looks good.
I have tried different setting times to polish after applying liquid wax.
from 30 mins to 2 hrs , it makes no material difference.
For the floor chasis & inside doors I kept for 2 hours and it was quick to polish.
I will give another coat this week and see how long the water beeding stays before I apply Super Doublecoat collnite Wax No 476 6 months down the line.

Notorious, the point is not of Gyro cheating but certain cases the distributors are at fault.

Moreover, the longer the drying time better the results. If Turtle Wax is a pain then Waxpol is Baap of Turtle Wax.

Started to see a few swirls in the finish already!!

btw UC is amazing! Its like all 1000 grit to 3000grit all sandpapers in one liquid compound!

When you start working, it cuts aggressively and then, its abrasives start to break down to more finer ones therefore imparting an amazing shine in the end!!

Totally innovative I'd say!

@tsk13 - Lol! It seems ppl using waxpol paste wax should buff with DA polishers or hire a body builder

. It's a pain in the neck to get the Waxpol off if it has dried for even about 5-10 minutes. I had to use Petrol to remove Wax marks when I failed in my first attempt with Waxpol.

The correct way to use waxpol is to let it dry - before wiping it off - apply a very thin coat of wax and then immidiately wipe it off...
Gives a good finish with minimal effort

Thanks man, this is an amazing suggestion. So I should let it dry for whatever time and prior to buffing I should apply another coat of Waxpol and wipe immediately?

M124, nice job buddy. Post more pics taken in broad daylight, the Waxpol effect should be more visible.

Moreover, please share the process you followed.
