No proper prep.
No clay.
Not even 2bm wash.
Just wash dry and working with the Scratch Clear Wax.
It was a very neglected car that had only ever seen poor washes that had then driven along bushes that put deeper scratches along the side.

The orange one is mine.
Been washed carefully from new but the swirls are inflicted by my fingers touching this area on opening and closing the boot for over a decade.
Was a bit confused as to why my results weren't as dramatic by hand. Used a random orbital polisher for that.
Maybe because the black was so bad it was easy to get a more noticeable result.

My friend took the black car to the local £5 hand wash 4 times over 6 weeks and the treated door still looked good.
Despite being converted and buying a tin of Scratch Clear Wax, he still hasn't done the rest of the car.
Mine was ok for a couple months.
Never actually noted how long it lasted.
Kinda like your hair growing long.
You never noticed the growth until it's really long.
Well.....2 yrs now and boot area looks same as the untreated image

I have heard of people doing this successfully, but it's also an example of the most common cause for smearing on black cars.

btw, because Fusso Coat has a high solvent content, it will be closer to mixing rather than layering. So, the durability will be less than Fusso Coat alone.

Anyway, let us know if you try it! =]

I see. Would there be any other products you would recommend to later it with to get good longevity

I've used Gtechniq C2V3 on top.
It is more water based than waxy solvent based and didn't affect the appearance of the finish or appear to remove the filllers

That's an excellent result. How long are you getting approximately with topping up with v2v3 before having to reapply scratch clear wax

I'll have another play soon and let you know..
I've been using Fusso wax and BSD this year and haven't used the Scratch Clear Wax for ages.
