Graphite grey - quick lasting results?

Hi,

I’ve just got myself a graphite gray Mercedes C Class. I’ve washed it all down today & used the amazing AS Clay cloth again (makes life so easy!)

I’ve put a couple of coats of AS wax on it for interim protection, but what I’m looking for now is a quick spray on sealant / protector to get me through the winter after every few washes (summat like Sonax BSD).

A trip to Seed Brothers is needed before next weekend I feel!

Spending hours out in the cold applying layers of protection is unfortunately not doable for me - it appears old age & abusing my body has caught up with me & the cold makes every part of me ache no matter how much of a sweat I build up!

Your Autosmart answers please.

Hi, few products i could recommend would be something like Gyeon Wetcoat or Car Pro Hydro2 (just not in direct sunlight or let them dry). After you have washed you spray on the car and give a good rinse off. I tend to only do a few panels at a time before rinsing to avoid it drying.

One i haven't used is fireball hyrophobic snow foam, if you have a foam lance that is. Wash and rinse as usual, use the snowfoam after and rinse. Hopefully some of these will save you time. There will be others and BSD does get plenty of recognition so will be others to choose from no doubt but these are what springs to mind.

Send a message via Skype™ to mkv
get yourself down to Seed Bros and ask for a demo on Cobalt Spray Polish.

Its quick and easy to apply and remove. Perfect product for all times of the year but certainly a "go to" product in the winter .
It will give you lasting protection and a perfect top-up on top of wax.

Hi there, we would agree, ask for a demo of Cobalt+ as this sounds exactly what you're after.

Well, I brought some Cobalt +. Using it 50:50 at the moment. Gives an amazing shine that’s for sure.

My little girl (8) said “ bloody hell dads, that looks amazing, smells bloody lovely too”

I’m guessing that’s a good sign ��
