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..
He'll have a couple of beading shots think he text me them about half six this morning

If get doesn't catch this I'll drop him a text and ask him to post them up

As Macca said, I took these this morning before going to work. Very impressed with the beading. I will try and get some sheeting shots over the next few days.





This was from the rain overnight. When I started driving the water run off almost immediately leaving a nice dry bonnet.

Is this a show wax or more durable?

Going off those beads I'd say it may be fairly durable despite the show wax label. May be something worth testing!

I was surprised as well Brian with the beading wasn't expecting it given it's a show wax.

If weather nice this weekend I might try mine out had a couple of broken ribs so the cars have been untouched for the past couple of weeks but hopefully feel up to it this weekend.

**UPDATE**

For those that are interested, I applied Butter Wax to my bonnet on the 19th March. Since then the car has been kept outside and as my daily driver has covered many miles and been washed about 4 times (approx but I do try a minimum one wash per week).

After washing the car tonight I was pleased to see that Butter Wax is still beading and sheeting very very well indeed. For example, I use an open hose to rinse the car after rinsing with my PW and by doing so the bonnet was almost completely dry.

What I did do though was use wowos QD on the bonnet and I have to say I'm very impressed by the ease of use and the finish it leaves.

Thumbs up again Fraser for an excellent wax and QD.
