Is the manufacturer section ever coming back? It would be great to know more about this.

Maybe not updated on google yet then? I thought it was west of Paisley that the new one was!

No idea Burger, Fraser hasn't mentioned anything with regards to it with me.

It is Brian about another couple of mile down the A737 but I thought their old unit was in Johnstone not Paisley??

I got my call and text from rojer386 so he's picked me up a tub along with some more awesome foam so i'll see what it's like tonight

I'll get rojer386 to post up what Fraser said to him I know he said it's soft like butter and a show wax with a really wet look.

So my thoughts about macca666 and his resistance to buying detailing products has been right all along. The phone call went something like this:

Me- Paul I'm stood with Fraser buying my Butter wax and QD, do you want anything?
Paul- Nah I'm trying to cut down and stop buying so much.....so get me a Butter Wax and a snowfoam mate!


Anyway, thanks to Fraser for taking time out this morning to chat about the products, his workshop, car shows and sort me out with some new products to try.

I went up for a tub of Butter Wax and a bottle of QD as per the offer on Instagram and Facebook.





As you can see I didn't just get what I went for.

"Soft like butter, smooth like glass, a unique blend of Brazilian carnuba wax, Californian Montan wax and organic beeswax" amongst other things from the side of the pot. Perfect wax for shows and meets.

As its a show wax it's not expected to last a while which I'm happy with because I've promised myself to spend more time detailing and applying the waxes that I have already.



I can't quite place the scent just yet but I do find it very pleasant.

I'm hoping to get this applied sooner rather than later and get a review on here for those that are interested.

Macca666, here are your goodies mate:



As for the location of Frasers place, you could probably get to it in about 5 minutes driving time from Glasgow airport heading south on the A737. What I would say though and he does mention it on his website, give him a call before hand as he has a mountain of work getting done there at the moment and is mega busy.

Wax looks stunning. That's some serious oilyness!

Little update on Butter Wax.

I cleaned the car this afternoon and decided to apply it to the bonnet of my M140. I have taken some photos but on white paint there's not a great deal to see.

Application - a small amount goes a long way on a foam applicator. One swipe is enough to thinly cover a good area of paintwork. I may have been a little hasty initially but soon realised that you don't need a lot.

Curing - I left it around 5 minutes to cure. It does say in the pot that it's a quick to use wax so I didn't leave it too long.

Removal - once the wax had hazed I remove it with a fluffy buffing towel and it came off fairly easy. I found bits were maybe slightly grabby but I put that down to me applying a little too much product in the beginning.

Finish - it certainly did leave a nice wet look finish in the bonnet. I'm sure it won't be long before the rain comes and I get to see how good it beads.

Like I said I do have a few photos and happy to post them if anyone is interested but not much can be seen.

I'd love to see some beading and possibly even sheeting shots if you could do that Rojer386.

Intrigued by the statement that Fraser apparently rates this higher than the contact 121.

I promised myself no more new wax before spring but that's only a couple of days away now isn't it..

Likely the same as Signature and 121 in that it has zero cure time. Literally apply it to a panel and instantly buff off. That might explain the difficulty in removing it in a few areas.
