Mirror Image

Does this actually have a wax in it?

Im planning on putting a sealant on top of it - ive been told its got carnauba in it (not sure how true that is) but will it affect sealant bonding?

Better to top with a wax?

Definitely has wax in it. Only ever topped it with Topaz and that lasted well, a good 4+ months with regular QD top ups. Not sure about other sealants tho.

I did the same as the above on a silver Ford cmax, it lasted well and the finish was great, very glossy.

Interesting. I was actually thinking of putting fusso on it so I might try it and see if it's any good

If you want a real nice finish with it apply it using a black pad on your rotary or DA

Fusso in theory won't bond very well with a wax layer. Won't last nearly as long as it would on a sealant friendly base.
