Greetings Y'all!

I have taken videos and some crude photos of the panels this past weekend, but I haven't had time to post the 5th and final update. I should have some time to finish everything off including detailed breakdowns of each product on the 26th (late Christmas present!). This post will include photos of the products and a picture of the water effects from the initial post compared to the final update.

Thanks again for reading, and have a happy holidays!

Brilliant final update. Do you have an overall favourite? Anything that really blew you away or surprised you?

Brilliant summary and very interesting results! Megs Ultimate Quick Wax looks like it's worth picking up!

It's hard to say 100% the best, given the different pros and cons attached to each product.

Obviously, Diamond-Kote crystal nano stole the show, it was still rush sheeting the panel dry after 5 months, both on the hood and door. The caveats are A.) Good luck buying the products on their own, B.) It uses a different panel wipe product for prep that stinks, and can't be sourced publicly, and C.) you can't apply it to head lights, as the stage 1 product (clear bottle, smells like ammonia) whitens them (comes off with polish, but will not be prepped after).

AG HD and Finnis Wax both lasted extremely well, and are priced fairly close. Not sure how UHD would fair compared to HD, but it has better applicators and seems to look really nice. PNS was no real surprise given all the documentation on the internet regarding it's performance, but it was probably second overall, and really easy to apply when you're setup and prepared (timing is everything).

The rest performed as I expected, with 476s and 1000P lasting how they did in my previous test. The only product I'm not 100% confident in is Poorboys, as my bottle is QUITE old. It did apply and remove as I remember, and the water behavior was never anything special.

The Megs Ultimate Quik is by far the biggest surprise though. Getting 2 months out of that with such an easy application is great. It's smoother than BSD, and cheaper to boot. If it was a spray on rinse off product it would be probably the best out of the bunch all things considered.
