Something that might be worth considering is a decent sealant followed by a quick spray of something like Wet Coat. I'm currently using Fusso Coat as a base and adding a layer of AG Polar Seal via the foam lance every month. Dead easy and ultra quick with very good results.

How easy is Fusso? As I’m not a major fan of paste waxes you see.

There is no obsession here with 6 months, I just want something I can put on my car short of a ceramic coat that I can ‘forget’ about for at least 6 months.
My kids are grown up so have the T shirt....

The cars were never left to get in a state. I didn't have the luxury of drying aids. It was wash and wax. It did the job.

And why mention 6 months if of no relevance? Just commenting on what was in the thread.

. Buy one that can be used as a drying aid too...Dodo Juice Future Armour as an example. The protection lasts as long as the next wash....and that isn't going to be much beyond 2 months I bet....even if you have as many kids as the old woman who lived in a shoe.

And as said above....adds little time to the wash process.
I've had 4+ months from DoDo juice future armour, but I don't drive every day

Fusso is not too bad - just let it cure properly and it's easy to remove. The advantage is that it provides an extremely durable base that you can top up with the Polar Seal. Having said that, Polar Seal on its own is good.

Just applied KKD Si-Stal yesterday. It's a super user friendly 12 month coating. Was pretty nice to use and seems to have added great gloss. Best thing is the price....£17. Bargain if it lives up to even close of it's 12 month claim, which by all reports it does easily.

Where did you purchase it from and how do you apply it?

Like I said I’d rather have something on it that lasts rather than doing it every wash or 2.

I mentioned at least 6 months as I know some LSPs are 4 months max.

Just using Sonax BSD on its own gives great results. It may not last six months but it is pretty hardy. I use it on its own as a drying aid and the hydrophobicity afterwards is superb. It takes literally a couple of minutes at most to spray BSD over a wet car then then go over with a drying towel - job done. Sonax BSD is ridiculously cheap at CarParts4less as well.

I would use something like Meguairs HCW, Turtle wax SnS, or the likes for your protection then. They all should last at least 4 months, and are very easy to apply. Moonlight is a coating but easier to apply, it still needs perfect prep. The spray products don't require perfect prep (although do benefit from it) so you can apply them and still get good durability, without having to worry too much about prep.
