Auto Finesse Tripple

Bought a bottle of this last week. I very occasionally clean my cousins car and if/when I do it's a very very quick wash so polishing/waxing has always been a out of bounds. Thought that Tripple might be a decent path to go down, plus I'd never tried any AF products

Anyways, gave it a quick try on my car (2001 Lexus RX300) and have to say I'm liking it. Back end of March I washed/decon/clayed/polished and waxed with DJ Supernatural Hybrid. However I've not had a chance to wash it again since so was pretty dirty, a quick blast with a garage pressure lance last week made it look even worse where the dirt was evenly spread from driving, it was now patches of dirty/clean

It was a quick wash/clean in-between shifts at work so I didn't even get to clean my wheels. Weather is very grey and drizzly today, so the pic's suck but I'll stick a few up anyways.

I didn't Tripple the front bumper so this is what it's like with todays rainfall on

Poor beading roof shot (But appreciate my 20mm f1.7 Panasonic lens )

Poor reflection roof shot

To be quite honest I wouldn't take these photo's as any sort of recommendation, as they are crap! But it's raining outside, I'm in a short sleeved work shirt and being a 4x4 the roof shots were taken at arms length

But I do like the product Easy to go on easy to remove, something which is often a royal pain on a silver car when you can't see where you've polished easily. In reality the gloss & reflections are very very nice. If I'd been on the ball yesterday I would've got some photo's when the sun was still out but I was rushing to get sorted for work again.

Hopefully it'll rain more so I can see some better beading as I'm very open to the fact that due to me rushing I didn't have time to let the product cure for as long as I probably should've so will be interesting to see how it takes to a quick job. I was literally applying to a panel then going over waiting a minute at most from finishing then going over and buffing off.

As a side note, what spray waxes/sealants would anyone recommend looking at if I wanted to top Tripple off? I've read a few posts saying Tough Coat but wondered if there were any others worth considering.

This is my daily workhorse that does and is in far from perfect nick so I don't really have the heart, most of the time, to spend an age giving it the works. So something quick and easy would be great
