So, what are the benefits of EGP? I've just used my DAS pro to put on the SRP, then went straight to AG High def wax by hand.

It's a sealant, so slight add of gloss but mostly it puts an extremely long lasting protective coating on the car

The SRP isn't meant as a long life protection and will wash off in a couple of weeks unless you put something over the top of it to protect it.

You can use a traditional car wax (as you have done) and it will work well, but you could use Extra Gloss Protection, which dries to form a hard, glossy layer of protection which can last up to 4 months or even more during summer months.

If you do use EGP over SRP, then you could, if you wish, add wax over the EGP after 24 hours (to let the EGP properly harden) which will give even more shine and protection and that works very well too.

Nubie question, if I put on SRP, EGP and then wax is it ok to mix brands? Or do some not work together?

It should be fine.

Kind of wished I'd done the Extra Gloss Protection now.

If I wanted to put some on, I imagine I will have to take off the wax first.

SRP & Wax will do just fine, no need for extra gloss in between.

Hi all,

I've recently applied SRP to my car, followed by a coat of EGP.

It did a great job but I've noticed there are a few areas I've missed (buffing it off) when the sun gets on the car at a certain angle, so I've had to keep buffing the car whenever I noticed anything!!

I used a microfibre to apply the SRP in the first place, as well as the EGP, would it be worth getting a proper applicator next time, or doesn't it really matter?

Possibly with the EGP, because it is so watery in nature and yet you only need the very thinnest coat so people have tried various methods of application including spraying it and using sponge applicators.

I use an MF covered sponge pad and that seems to work well in getting a very thin coat of EGP onto the paint.

Hello,

Can I apply SRP over my wax? or Will it remove my wax layer?

Thanks for any help.
