Fk1000p on white paint

So I've been searching for a wax/sealant to apply to my white paint.

From what I have read, am I right in saying fk1000p is a decent all rounder for white paint?

I've got DSW on at the minute, would I get better stain resistance with Fk1000p.

Also I've read it will sit on top of cleanser polish, correct?

I'm planning on topping with Fk425, has anyone compared to bouncers done and dusted?

Or should I just stick with DSW?

Merry Christmas

John.

FK1000P does leave a sightlier glossier finish than DSW, and is even easier to apply and remove. However it isnít very stain resistant either (for example window trim runs on a dirty car still show) so IF thatís your reason to try then stick with DSW.

It is slightly more durable than DSW and more versatile too, but much more a sheeter than a beader...

Cheers blackroc,

I'm in two minds now, I do like the beading of DSW, I'm looking for something that has better self cleaning, stain resistance and durability.

I know white paint is not going to be fantastic.

Any suggestions?

John

I’ve got FK1000P in my wife’s white Mondeo and it’s great. It’s long lasting and was cheap and easy to use. I use it on the wheels on my own car too. I top up with Wax Planet Poly Gloss and it looks fantastic on the white paint. I highly recommend it as a good all rounder. I nearly bought Fuso a month ago and the day I was going to order it, my neighbour had a detailer do his car. He put fuso on and it looked great but failed after 2 weeks. I know the product gets great reviews but having seen it fail after 2 weeks put me off.

From what I've read it seems people steer towards fk, I like that it can be used on wheels too

I used AG HD wax on my white A5 and loved it, very easy to use and gave a very nice gloss

I have been using FK1000p since the summer and am very, very impressed with it.

The "self cleaning" is very good in the rain and the other day i cleaned off several weeks worth of road dirt with just plain water from the pressure washer - not perfect, but far better than you would expect from just cold water

Cant go wrong with the cheaper classics....

FK1000, Collinite 845, AG HD, the Zanio sealants, etc...

All decent for the money. Stain resistance everyone wants but I found proper washing, drying and quick detailing again is the best thing to do to keep a car looking its best

Probably because it wasnít left to cure properly and removed too early. Thatís the most common reason of it failing prematurely Iíve had it on 6 months before and the could only remove it by machine polishing it off haha
