It exists in the showroom section already - but at the opportunity to photo whore again;

Two stage DA polish with Menzerna polishes followed by a base layer of Wax Planet iWax and a top layer of Oblivion

This was the gloss and reflection after just the iWax



The combo was chosen to give the level of flake enhancement that I was after - the Oblivion really enhanced the flake and gave the paint a completely different dynamic

Paint had a machine polish and a sealant applied butbthis little beauty topped it off with great gloss levels being achieved.
I applied like a conventional QD as I did find it needed a little buff off on some areas.

Here's some pics of a golf I did wearing Placebo.







Prep was a full de-con and pre wax cleanser.

Thanks

Yes quite an unusual name for a wax.
It's a strange one in terms of finish. Up close I thought the finished article looked a little dull but when I stood back and viewed from an angle the gloss really shows. The sun came out very briefly and there was some nice flake pop too.

I'm not sure but I think the VW orange peel has some effect on the reflection.
