Topping Carlack Complete for durability?


I have a new Honda pearl white car to detail soon and want to put a sealant with fairly good durability on. I have previously used Workstat then Carlack, now Complete and Long Life, but have heard some people top Complete with different products such as Collinite 476 or BH Double Speed.

What would you recommend?

In the past I have also tried Gtechniq C1 / Exo a couple of times and really don't think the time taken / price actually give a better result than Carlack, partly as it still seems to suffer on the top coat with water spots / sap marking, then the only way to get off is to re m/c the whole car and start again. (Stating this as Gyeon Q2 Cancoat is something else I briefly looked at, but was put off by my Gtechniq experience).

Hi Nige, two options spring to mind if durability is your primary concern. The first is to apply the full Carlack system (Complete > Long Life x 2) and then maintain this finish with GYEON Q2M WETCOAT during every routine wash thereafter (for the next 6 months or so). This is quick and easy, but does require user input on a regular basis (to wash the car and apply the WETCOAT). The second option is to top the full Carlack system with Bilt Hamber double speed-wax. This basically extends the overall durability of the system to well in excess of six months, with no need for any maintenance save occasional washing. Because it's a hybrid (of wax and polymers), this wax is one of the few we recommend for light coloured finishes. Both options are good - choose the one that suits you best!
