  • Gotta love colinite

    I have to say am always super impressed with colinite. I spent a day after i was able to move about again and gave the Treg some attention. Several months on and after having most of the local road throw their mud at the car, a quick wash today, no chamois and it just comes up so nice.

      that is impressive. I've got a tin of the stuff brought it several years ago but never have got round to using it yet . Looking at those pics, I will now !!

          Yeah its good stuff. Doesn't matter where you use it either never causes a problem. That first picture was a jetwash, polar foam and the a mit and bucket. Then a simple t-cut to remove a mass of tar spots then colinite. I was broken after that but the pictures did do it justice

            476S is my go to wax too - prompted by Steve who gave the outside a good detailing a few years ago. Needs doing again now
            Shocked, exhausted, hosed, bushed, dumped, chipped, mounted, filtered, gauged, packed, intermittantly wiped and braked. I mean broken. Now, about the car...

                    Glad to hear I have left a lasting legacy!

                    P.S. I have moved on since then!

                        That was click bait wasn't it!

                        Autobrite Project 64 Sealant or R222 Concours Wax or Collinite too to be honest ( I still have an old tin!)

                        Both will obviously benefit from the base paint / clearcoat being polished first then prepped with a good paint cleanser which I use Sonus Paint cleanser or R222 Paint Cleanser. That really is the basis of a great finish. The polish and cleanse does the hard work, Waxes or Sealants cannot really provide the "pop" on their own...

                          You got me! I haven't heard of the Autobrite sealant before, I've read good reviews on the R222 Concours wax.
                          I'll order these on the strength of your recommendation.

                            So have i, using AG high definition wax now.
                            Still rate the Collinite though and have loads of it left.



                            Another recommendation on here 5 years go or so was,.......

                            ‚Äč



                            Did a great job for me, extremely easy to wash brake dust of afterwards. Any good still?
