I haven't really kept this up to date have I!!

Finally got sick of not using QD on the boot so decided this will be the only and last update on the wax

Here is the beading currently



Pretty poor from all in my opinion, although I do wax my car at least once a month so beading is usually awesome.

I feel the Illusion is beading the least the Super Illusion next and the SNH the most as expected.

I guess this test is a little pointless for me as I wax the car so much....but, I thoroughly enjoyed mixing the wax and finding out what the outcome will be. I will use the Super Illusion again and might even have a go at a full home brew soon.

I guess what I will take away from this is that when SNH and Illusion are mixed you do get the best of each whilst masking the worst of each so somewhere in the middle. If doing it again I'd go for a 75/25 mix in favour of Illusion to ease application.

It's probably quite telling though that the boot has been rotary polished with Rejuvenate and 2 coats of Illusion applied!

You'll never guess what i seen this weekend?!

Someone trying to wax their car with nivea face cream! I can only assume the wife said he was spending too much money on silly little pots of product and he was taking revenge.....

Good to see the results, i was genuinely confused when i seen that pot in the initial pictures!
