Used to use that too...now on the Blackfire Midnight Sun system, which I think gives a deeper wetter looking shine :biggrin:That was quick!
It takes me 2 days to wash, clay, polish and seal!
Just washing takes me around 2.5h (the wheels alone take almost 1h) but that's probably being paranoid not to create any scratches. Ever since discovering the Werkstatt Acrylic kit I have switched to that as it is so much easier to polish and seal, lasts well and looks good.
A couple of months dirt at least. Only used a hose to rinse the car during that time. The R222 wheel cleaner, does it shift any dirt without agitating and is it acidic or mild without stripping any wax?Have always used zymol stuff. How dirty are your wheels if is takes an hour just to do them?
Rich, the "problem" with waxes is that they take very long to apply and buff whereas the Acrylic Jet trigger is just spray on and buff of.Hmm yeah think I still like the black ones best :woohoo:

I *think* the problem I have with waxes is applying too much of it and then it is a pain to buff.
Does this last longer than the Acrylic stuff and if so by how much?
True, when the Prime hardens it becomes rock hard but you only need to use it 2-3 times per year maximum, the rest of the times just topping up the Jet Trigger in between.On one hand I agree that the Jett is piss easy to apply, but the Prime is a pain in the arse to get off, and I ended up having to use copius quantities of Gloss just to remove it.
The Carnuba wax it also piss easy - not as easy as the Jett obviously - you apply it so thinly that it dries within 5 mins and then easily wipes off. The application pad supplied (2 actually) makes it virtually impossible to apply too much in my opinion. It's supposed to last for 3 months, but like the Jett it's best with multiple coats !! I can wax the whole car in about 20-30 mins.
For reference I switched to the Blackfire system because I saw a black wagon at a car show that had an amazingly deep shine...and upon enquiring found out what she was using.
