If you enjoy the Dodo SNH (i'm a big Dodo fan btw) i highly recommend Soft99 The Kiwami. There are two versions, Light & Dark. The gloss levels from this are seriously impressive as is the durability. Nice rich 'nuba depth, But lovely synthetic shine. A firm favourite of mine and it's excellent value.

I did the aforementioned Fiesta in a very cold garage in under 2.5 hours and it cured sufficient to easily buff off in that time.
I clayed and pre-waxed it too, I was really motoring and think I actually didn't finish the boot until the next week.
You could add another layer the next day if you wanted to. I never did.

Ok cheers. Can you not layer it sooner then?

If it’s durability and ease of use it has to be Soft99 Fusso Coat.

Leave it an hour for the next coat. Cracking wax BTW.

Thanks for the replies - some new options there so will have a good look at the products mentioned. I forgot to mention in the first post that I topped the SNH on the bonnet only with Vic's Red. Hadn't used it for about 5 years so got some on my hands and gave the bonnet a good rub old school style. I'm not one for being able to detect too much of a difference in LSPs but it left a beautiful, rich wet shine - presumably due to the high oil content. I almost wanted to do the whole car but this was the second full detail in successive days and my shoulders were throwing in the towel!

I sometimes think DSW gets overlooked because it is such good value
Put it in a black glass jar with gold writing and give it a £70 price tag and it would fly off the shelves

If you feel the need to spend more...

Guilty here of thinking too much about when I did the Fiesta - I didn't add another coat as it was a surprise for my GF and I didn't quite complete the car with 1 coat. Plus I wanted a test car that I'd wash often for a durability guide with 1 coat.

So, yes, you could layer an hour or so later, as many as you wanted. Thanks to wilco for commenting.

100ml £33 or 230ml £55

Post to Oz about £10 or within UK £3

I'm tempted by this. Can you tell me if VAT is deducted at the checkout for overseas shipments.
