I hadn't been aware of the DW trader sponsor scheme at the time, but safe to say I am now on-board with becoming an official approved trader on here which means there should be no issues with posts now. Apologies if I caused any inconvenience for you all.

Great news. Welcome aboard. Received my pot of Nebula the other day. Looking forward to trying it out.

Received mine last week too. Set aside yesterday to give the car a good maintenance wash and coat of Nebula. Got up early, had a good breakfast, set up all my gear....and then it started misting, and didn't stop all day

I recently picked up some Nebula and finally got a chance to use it today. On the car already is CQuartz-UK and Reload.

I gave the car a good maintenance wash, dry and then set about applying the wax. It was cold here today, never got much about 2 or 3 degrees with about 80% humidity - far from ideal conditions, but I thought I'd give it a go. The wax is quite firm with a lovely coconut and vanilla smell. I applied it with a MF applicator and gave it 30mins to cure given the conditions.

Buffing it off was somewhat difficult, however I think I may have applied the wax a little thick and I've no doubt that the weather didn't help. Once it was all buffed off I was left with gloss like I haven't seen on the car before, I'm extremely impressed with it. The wax has given huge depth and warmth to the pain, the shine is amazing. I've used many waxes on the car (some of which were considerably more expensive than this) and Nebula beats them all in my opinion. Given its price, its is a steal!

Here's two rubbish iPhone shots, the light was fading quickly so they don't do the car justice at all. I'll try to get some better pics tomorrow if the sun ever comes out!

Amazing pictures mate, maybe you left it a touch to long to remove, but it is a bit grabby at the start and then it's a breeze to remove. Looking forward for some sun pictures.

Top job on the car RonanF, looks great! Glad to read that Nebula has impressed you so much and I'm very humbled at the comment about it out-performing more expensive waxes. I think with some warmer temps you should find the removal easier, not that it's particularly difficult as Chongo has stated, but temps and humidity aren't ideal at this time of year as you know. I'm loving your pictures too, I keep going back to them. Well done on your efforts

Cheers guys. I think I should stress it was in no way a major issue to apply or remove the wax, it just required a little more elbow grease than usual. I've absolutely no doubt that the weather conditions were responsible.

The panels were very cold which made the wax hard to spread thinly, meaning I had to apply it heavier than I normally would and I probably let is cure a little too long also.

No pics today unfortunately, we'd a very hard hoar frost last night so I woke up to a virtually white car! It's still very foggy and there's no real chance of any drying today. I took this last night, it was almost dark so the pic's crap, very noisy etc, but you can still get an idea of the gloss and the really wet look that it gives. Love it!
