Question AG SRP, Wax, and GTECHNIQ C2

Hi, first thread on DW.. and first time detailing!

I have bought everything I need to start detailing my new VW Scirocco 2014, Oryx White, Black roof.
  • - Bilt Hamber Auto Foam
  • - Auto Glym Vinyl And Rubber Care
  • - Nilco Glass Cleaner
  • - Halfords Upholstery Cleaner
  • - Auto Glym Super Resin Polish
  • - CarPro TRIX Iron & Tar Remover
  • - PoorBoys Wheel Sealant
  • - Bilt Hamber Auto Clay
  • - Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax
  • - C2 Liquid Crystal by GTECHNIQ

I wanted to know for the final stages if it is okay or correct to use AG SRP applying multiple coats, then Wax, and then the GTECHNIQ C2 Liquid Crystal Sealent.

Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks,
Chris

Thanks for your reply,

Yes I was just interested in the last stage with the polish wax and sealant.

I saw a thread a while ago saying 3+ hits of SRP was really good at filling swirls and light scratches. Might want to give the wax a few hours to 'gas out' its solvents before applying the C2v3.

Applying C2 on top of DSW is probably not going to work very well - no LSPs will bond very well on top of wax, other than more wax!

So once you've done the SRP, you could either go to DSW and stop there (ideally use two coats) or you could apply C2, and stop there, or if you wanted to go nuts, apply C2, then apply DSW on top of that.

I'd choose one or the other (C2 or DSW) and just use that one. C2 can be diluted to use as a detailing spray to top up protection, or you can just periodically re-apply DSW over itself after a wash (not that you should need to do this very often, perhaps every three months - DSW is a very durable wax).

Or as an alternative, apply SRP all over the car, then put DSW on some panels and C2 on others, and see which lasts longest / looks nicest / has the best water behaviour, according to your tastes.

I think I'll go nuts and apply the C2 and then the DSW

Will see how it goes and make a desicion from there!

Appreciate your advice

I used too much SRP because I was in a rush, loosing day light and wasn't thinking straight. Now my black roof has like a light haze to it in some areas, presumably excess polish. What's the best way to get it off? I buff it and it looks asif it's going away but it doesn't.

The way I would tackle the above, is some detailing spray. It sounds like it might be marring if it's not going away with a dry buff.

The other thing you can try with uneven coats, is apply some product again and remove immediately (rather than let it set up normally)

Hmm I don't have any detailing spray.. I'll have to try adding small amount of SRP then buffing off :/

Yeah so some of the roof is fine but more of the center is just hazey, like there is excess polish to buff. Now I'm panicking!

Part of the roof kinda looks like the left side of this bonnet:




My other worry is I applied the same amount of polish over the whole car, but the car is white so presumably its harder to tell there is excess polish there too.. what can I do about that? So annoyed at my self. HELP!
