Not 100% sure but I think Crystal sealant might have had some changes. Talking to Fraser I am sure he mentioned my 'new crystal sealant' as on it's way. Will confirm though! I got this for my wheels as well, apparently it makes a great wheel and possibly glass sealant.

He did mention it sometime ago Brian but I've not heard that it's gone retail as yet.

Can confirm it has been re-formulated. More durable and easier to use according to Fraser. Might have mines delivered today along with the 121

Will orders placed this week get the new improved formula?

Ooh, really keen to hear how this reformulated one is Brian. I was tempted by the last one but the ease of use put me off.

The Contact 121 is amazing. Lots of people nabbed a pot when it was cheap at Christmas. I was expecting to see more mentions of it.

I'm itching to use mine, but the weather hasn't been kind so far, I'm guessing other people are in similar boats?

Basically this, weather's been hopeless for any sort of detailing other than a quick wash

Butter wax is the priority when I get it. Fraser had to throw a full batch out recently. Apparently its an nightmare to make.

I won't do a full blown review but will put a thread up giving my thoughts on both when I get around to try them. Got a huge amount on my plate at the moment detailing world wise!

I got crystal sealant for Christmas and used it right after, without any prior prep, on top of rain x and I don't even recall what wax. Seriously impressed with the product.

Used two mf cloths, two/three sprays on the short fibre side of one cloth, apply to about a quarter of the roof and immediately buffed off with the long fibre side of the other cloth. Was about 8 degrees, overcast, with relatively high humidity but came off super easy without any additional hazing.

See if the photos work but this is after three weeks with one wash a week ago:

Painted part with on the left the failing wax that's been applied late October.
