Sealant/Wax Dilemma

It’s the time of the year for me to carry out a full paint decontamination etc. on my car followed by paint protection.

After rummaging the garage, I have the following products at my disposal and don’t really want to add others at this point. Any thoughts on which products will work well together, do I apply a glaze (I have VERY minor wash-marks so do not want correct paintwork), sealant or wax, or both a sealant and wax?!

For a bit of background, the car is diamond white (Mercedes) and I intend to use H&K 7010 panel wipe after decon, claying etc. to remove any residue products.

Glazes:
CG Wet Mirror Finish
Blackfire Gloss Enhancing Polish (used on my previous black car and it gave a great finish!)

Sealants:
Blackfire All Finish Paint Protection
Opti-Seal
FK1000P (never sure whether this is a sealant or wax?)

Waxes:
Race Glaze 55
Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance

Thanks in advance for any help!

Given you have 2 products from Blackfire, and assuming theyre not just for black cars, then personally id go for that combo first.

I seal and wax my own car, but tend to only do one or the other on other peoples - in case they end up looking as good as mine

Havent used either wax you mention so cant offer an opinion there.

FK1000P - i dont like how that goes on paintwork so use it only for metal that gets hot. Though i class it as a paste wax. But then i class Fusso Dark as wax and i know others say a sealant.

Thanks everyone for the input. I will give the Blackfire combo a try and see how I get on with that.

I did wonder about layering the Race Glaze on top of the Blackfire AFPP but doubt it'll take given the slipperiness of the sealant.

Does anyone have experience of applying a wax on top of a sealant?

Until recently i had BH double speed wax on top of Megs 21 synthetic sealant. All good.

Couple of weekends ago i stripped the lot off and now have a tripple combo from Autoperfekt called Boss of Gloss. Its another synthetic sealant, then wax, then some top coat gloss enhancer.

The gloss is undeniably better with the autoperfeckt stuff but the beading isnt as good.

Thanks. I will do half the bonnet with the Race Glaze on top of the sealant as a test. It should be easy enough to get off if doesn't improve the look. Hopefully should be able to get to this within the next couple of weeks.

Thanks to everyone for your help
