Wonder if autosmart tango would mix well, I use that diluted spritzed over the car just now as a drying aid although due protection and still experimenting with tango so might not be using it correctly.

Have tried a few recent 50/50 blends and all have been pretty good. Used Adams, Britemax S&S, Wowo's, OW enhance, OW Flawless, Feynlab QD and Waxaddict wet look sealant. The waxaddict one is actually my fave of the bunch but they all worked well.

One mix that does not work is ONR mixed with water at QD dilution and BSD. Both products together appear to curdle.

I also found AG Smooth Velvet and BSD did not mix well.

I’ve found anything that leaves a ring in the bottle, or anything that you have to shake does not mix well.

For me that means: Bouncers, Infinity Wax, CG P40, Autoglanz, Optimum War Wax

I read this whole thread. Very interesting. I’m going to try 40% V7, 40% BSD, and 20% TAC Systems Quartzmax for added durability.

Yes, but with a previous version. It had a tendency to separate and leave tiny waxy streaks on my dark blue paint. I think theirrespective cleaning agent polymers did not go so well together.

Better to mix with C2v3. Or better still to layer them separately, C2 beneath.

Just a new year's bump for this awesome thread by Shiny.
I've been using his 50:50 cocktail of BSD & CGV07 after every wash for a while now.

I pat dry my car til 95% dry.
Separate damp MF in right hand.
Tiny spray bottle of BSD CGV07 in the other.
Few spritz per panel and final wipe spread with MF using minimal pressure.
Job done.
Been caught with light drizzle mid application.....no problems.

On my bonnet I remember testing half with this, half with Gtechniq C2V3.
Drove in the rain on the motorway.
Rain beads were flying up the bonnet 3 X faster with this than C2V3.
Nuff said.

Many thanks again Shiny
