So glad I'm not the only one. I'm demoting it to alloy wheels, exhaust ends and possibly lower doors like yourself, and use Fusso for everywhere else and maybe a nice carnauba wax every now and then.
First I'll have to try SRP to remove the streaks as I have no other liquid which would do it other than perhaps panel wipe and start over

Only just picked up on this thread again and spotted your remark.
I think you misunderstand my comments,I'm fully aware it's a sealant and am asking 'is this a sealant that can't be applied over waxes?'.

Of course many sealants are water based and fine over waxes without leaving streaks. It appears this No1 SG is not in that category.
Nowhere on the instructions does it say not to apply if you have wax on there.

It's still in the back of the cupboard

I used this over the past week on a couple of front bumpers. It has really helped with getting bugs off - they are significantly easier to wash off. I did a little 50/50 test on two halves of the bumper, and the protected side was massively easier.

My method is
- fold a MF into 4 and spray the MF twice
- spray the panel once and buff it off

it is extremely thin, and I can see where it could dry too quickly and streak, so definitely do this when it's cool and in the shade. Using a foam or MF applicator didn't work - I had to use a towel.

Mirrors, bumpers, skirts - perfect product for me at this time of year to deal with bugs.

What sealants are you aware of that you would apply over a wax?

As I've mentioned before, apply it on bare paint, or at the worst, very tired wax. It doesn't like oily surfaces. As such, the multitude of products you had on your car will pose a problem for many products to bond with.

Weirdly a couple of days later and I can't see the streaking. I'm wondering if the UV from the sun has done something because its not dirty enough to hide the streaking that was there.

DoDo do Acrylic spritz and Future Armour, both sealants and both wax friendly. I actually contacted them recently to confirm Future armour was wax friendly.

Acrylic spritz say's :-

"A water based high performance synthetic spray sealant. It is used to top up existing wax or sealant protection, or it can be used as a sealant in it's own right.."

I love Acrylic spritz and their Future Armour is also excellent and can be used as a drying aid too. Andy at DoDo confirmed to me it is fine over wax but " be sure to level it first"
I have not had the streaking problems with either of these products.

Not sure about "the multitude of products" I'm supposed to have on my car. I have a wax and like most people would use a QD on occasions or add some bling with a sealant which, in the case of the DoDo products, sit nicely and streak free. ( as I live in an area where there's no water on tap I wash with ONR solution but not the wax one, so there's no greasy residue from ONR original, just the polymers it leaves behind.)

late to the party on this but tried it today on my Java black Discovery. Car now looks awful with streak marks everywhere.

How do I get it off..? Will hand polish suffice?

A wash, and dry off with a QD will sort it (using a short nap MF)... which sort of undermines the durability claims too!
