Yep still perfect. Not parked under anything!

Well yesterday it was very sunny and I see down the side had some lights swirl marks. I think I will give a clay in the next few weeks then light finishing polish, panel wipe and two coats of 121. Sound good?

I also have Soft99 Water Block Dark... That beads incredible but only lasts about 4-6 weeks. I fancied a bit more durability this time!

Quick update!

As I think Chongo suggested, Washed etc then used Gyeon Prep before applying another coat of Contact 121.

This was done at the weekend and already the beading is nothing like I would have expected. The name suggests the beading should be some of the best around but it just ain't. BSD is far better and last longer from a spray on wipe off formula! Soft99 Water Block is in another league!

It ain't a cheap cheap wax. Should I contact Fraser?

Either something is completely wrong rob in application or it could be a bad pot? I'd drop fraser a message. 121 will out last BSD by 4+ months easily.

Possibly a dodgy pot, especially as sounds as though Rob's prep is spot on. The one I had was a dream to spread and remove and the beading was incredible. One of the very best waxes I have used and I have used, erm, way too many

Yeah my prep is spot on. Like an Amateur Pro

The application is nice and so it the buffing off! The gloss is brilliant too!

Just the beading a durability!

I sent Fraser an email direct to the email address on the Wowo's website but i have not had a reply.

I did however try to send a private message on here but after I clicked send it did not go in my sent folder. I done this twice!

Don't know what has gone wrong as I have sent PM's before!

For some reason I don't think the PMs appear in the sent folder until after they've been read...

There's an option in your PMs which you need to select to have them saved in your sent folder it doesn't do it automatically.

Mines save straight away I'm probably a bit weird after I send a PM I immediately chec in my sent folder to make sure it's sent and I always see them immediately
