Autoglym EGP...gotta love it!

In these days of amazing products with names like Fusso, Gyeon, bouncers etc (most of which I've not tried yet), I thought it'd be good to post a couple of pics of an 'old school' product.

I'd gave the car the following: wash, korrosol, rinse, intensive tar remover, wash, clay mitt, wash again. Then a quick coat of SRP. The age and condition of this car means I'm passed the point of doing corrections. It just shows up the stone chips. Anyway I'll let the pics do the talking. But needless to say, I'm happy with it.

That looks nice - its just the looooooong drying time that means I wont use it. Wipe on, wipe off is king for me

Yes.

Always loved EGP for its looks and 4 month+ durability, but its a pain finding a long enough dry period to let it cure properly, even when misting it on. Became a convert to G3 SuperGloss wax as a replacement for EGP, which is just as shiny and nearly as durable, but super quick and easy to apply and buff.

Recently moved to using Sonax BSD which is just a breeze to use by comparison to EGP

You should try some Sonax Long Term Protection - the aerosol spray in the red tin from CYC

Spray on, wipe over like a QD, probably dont even need to buff, and 4 months of BSD style protection and water behaviour Not quite as durable as the other aerosol Sonax stuff like PNS etc, but 10x easier and faster, and comes in a mahooosive can as well.

I love Sonax BSD and Hybrid NPT. Gave EGP an outing as I'm fortunate enough to have a garage so didn't need to worry about letting it cure.

EGP is looking for 30-60 mins to dry, but to be honest when it passes the swipe test it is happy to come off. You can apply EGP and then spend the drying time doing other things. For example clean all the glass, dress the tyres, apply a wheel sealant etc. The beauty is that the drying EGP residue on the car acts as a barrier to any product overspray that would otherwise land on the bodywork and it is taken off during the final buff off of the dry EGP leaving a finished car.

Slightly off topic but has Autoglym EGP undergone any changes/improvements in its formula since the 1990s when I last used it?

Does EGP become any more durable, if you leave it on longer before buffing?

Garage
Can't answer that but I have just had to leave it on for over an hour due to rain. I found it easier to remove. Always found durability good.
