Looking for straightforward polish/wax/sealant product advice

Hi,

I bought a bunch of DJ cleaning products a while back and now I want to get some protection products. As I'm new to this I want something straightforward and not too costly.

I've read that the Supernatural Hybrid is a good choice, followed up with some Acrylic Spritz. I'm tempted by this but am considering another option;

BoB Protection Wax (which I'd use on the body and the alloys) followed up with Future Armour. Would these work well together and can I apply FA straight after the wax has cured? Or am I better off getting Acrylic Spritz on top of the BoB Wax.

For the polish I was thinking of going with BoB Prep Polish

Finally, another reason for considering the BoB Protection Wax is that I can get the kit which includes a cloth and applicator.

For reference my car is a Beige/Sandy Volvo XC90, so a fair bit of bodywork to cover . I also only plan to do a polish/wax/seal at most every 4 months. The rest of the time would just be a wash and probably sealant top-up every now and then in between.

On an unrelated note I'll also be getting the glass cleaning kit. Can I use the polish for the inside of the windscreen?

Any thoughts / suggestion on what works well? Thanks in advance

let me start by saying well done for getting some of the best products available.

Firstly use BoB Polish/LimePrime or need for speed as the base and polish up the paint and prep the wheels if you want.

Secondly use Supernatural Hybrid or BoB Protection Wax to protect all your hard work, they are both great and very similar IMO but if you have both use SNH.

Thirdly use FA or acrylic spritz after your first wash say in a couple of weeks to top up the SNH. I would do this more into winter though but its all down to preference.

Fourthly you can polish the inside of the windscreen although depends on the state but i wouldn't guess too bad.

Lastly grab a beer when you're done and enjoy the shine. #TeamDodo

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll go with the BoB Polish and Wax.

A couple of further questions on Future Armour;
1) Can it be used to top-up existing layers of FA?
2) Can it be used on wheels, on top of a BoB Protection Wax layer?

Great, thanks!

This is my new shopping list:
  • Basics of Bling Prep Polish 250ml
  • Basics of Bling Protection Collection
  • Blue Roo Polish Applicator
  • Basics of Bling Extra-soft Buffing Cloth
  • Future Armour 500ml
  • Majorly Menthol Glass Kit

I think I'm going to add a traffic film remover as I find that even after snow foaming and a couple of rinses by the time I come to hand clean there are still quite a few black dots / crud on the car.

I was going to go with Crudzilla but slightly put off by the warnings that I'm not sure I trust myself to not damage anything . Instead, I'm considering the Supernatural TFR.
  1. Can this be left on longer, less risk of damage if I don't rinse quickly enough?
  2. Is it best applied on a dry car (i.e. before initial rinse) or after the initial rinse?

1) Yes it sure can.
2) Either but i would do after so one it doesn't dry on and two by rinsing you get most of the crud off.

Thanks!

Out of curiosity, is there anything stopping me using future armour on things such as shower screens and other limescale prone glass?
