                Good effort mate. When it rains make sure you get the beading photos up. With that much wax and sealant it will bead really well. Just curious though I was told sealants are a little more difficult to make bond. Was the layer of wax before an issue?

                            looking good mate. just a couple of pointers.

                            after the first wash there is no need to dry the car before claying, the water infact helps to act as a lube.

                            the final products are a bit the wrong way round. if you want to apply a sealant and a wax (although IMO this is a waste of time and product) then the sealant needs to be applied first as sealants dont tend to bond to wax very well. so what i would have do is polish, glaze and then sealant, i.e. blacklight and forgotten about the wax. when you have applied the glaze there is no need to use v7, the reason for applying a glaze is to 1/ help enhance the look and b/ prepare the surface for a sealant, by applying v7 your undoing this step.

                            In addition glossworks contains gloss enhancers so is ideally to be used between wax's / sealant to help maintain the loo, if polishing then just use born to be mild.
