IN the grey bottle is Megs 21 Sealant. The wax next to it is AMAZING. It will turn to a solid when it gets to room temp so you have to let it steep in hot water until it liquifies. After that, it goes on like baby oil it is crazy. Comes of pretty easy too. I can see it is a wax that makes it real easy put on once every other week just because how easy it was to put on and take off.

Thanks SR. Yours looks awesome. I should have said I used a nano, Meg's gold class wash x2 and Megs ultimate liquid sealant. I've heard great things about 845. The Megs ultimate is very easy on and off. Explain this whole heat up procedure? Sounds a little strange!

Well, it turns to a solid at room temp, so you just have to warm it up to turn it back into a liquid.

So I've heard of collinite and it's been around for forever. I'm thinking of putting this over the Megs sealant which is what ultimate wax is, like you did. Thoughts?

HONESTLY, I didn't see a difference, it said to give it more depth and all this crap but honestly I think if they tell you what it is supposed to do your mind will see it; well, i didn't see it. It can't hurt anything as it is an extra layer of protection from the UV rays blah blah.. I think it does make the car smoother than the Megs and it has a better bead and sheeting than megs.

Gotcha. So just like any carnuba or hybrid wax would compared to a straight sealant. I forgot to do a glaze prior to my wax. My wife's car will need it more anyway so I was thinking glaze, sealant and maybe a wax on her car. Any thoughts?

You know me, anything is better than nothing. The sealant is always better because it supposed to last longer. The Wax I used I really like because how fast and easy it went on, that being said I am going to put another layer on tonight while at work I can't stand all that pollen on the car.

feast your eyes on my new acquisition.

Washed, Nano Skin and sealed with megs #26.



this picture is before the sealant, so no topical wax or sealant contributed to this shine.

Yeah 07' Well remember I had a 5th gen that a deer took out before i got my 7th gen. So it's nice and faster than my 5th gen mostly because this is a 3.5 and my 5th gen was a 3.0. I think I am going to super charge it next year sometime after i am done with school..

next month I am going to sand the whole car and as you know, post that process.
