    Default P21S Wax

    How do you apply the stuff?

    According to the instructions, you need to buff it off just before it hazes over. How exactly do you determine that?

    In the first instance, I tried putting on what I thought was a thin coat, left it 5 minutes (no sign of hazing) and then tried to buff it off. It was still soft and I'm pretty sure all I did was wipe the lot off.

    Second attempt, I left it 20 minutes. Still no sign of hazing but when I tried to buff it off I was left with lots of hardened wax spots that I had to polish off in the end.

    (Temperature was around 15deg, BTW)

    What's the knack?

    ok... this is quiet possibly the easiest wax you can possibly apply, so if youre having bother then your doing something wrong.

    Basically work a max of 2 panels at a time. Just smear it on thinly over 2 panels. By the time youve finished the 2nd, the 1st panel will be ready to take off. Its not like any wax you buy from halfords, that you have to wait for a haze.... just buff it off. I know you think youre just removing it, but trust me, youre not. If you leave it to haze, its a complet pain to get off as you found out.

    Try to forget about things like autoglym and how they haze etc etc, its a pure wax you are now applying.

    Hi SJG,

    When applying P21S it doesn't really matter how long you leave it, I have tried leaving it for 1 hour and I've also just wiped it on and wiped it off with no real difference............I now just apply to the whole car then wipe off and then buff up............remember thin thin thin is the way to go

    Oh and as usual when applying by hand I apply in one direction (straight lines) then wipe down at 90 degrees then go back to the way I applied the first time for the final buff up, this is just the way I do it, I find it almost guarantees even thin coverage

    Hope this helps!

    Bryan

    Well, I've given this stuff every opportunity but it just doesn't do it for me.

    It's easy to put on but an absolute b*tch to get off. It either goes rock solid or you end up smearing it around for ages. Despite my best efforts, I can see more microscratches afterwards than were there at the outset. I think I'll just put this one down to experience.

    Anyone want to buy a barely used tub of P21S?

    Sorry mate, it was a flippant remark: I didn't mean it as a serious offer!

    Yeah, I deffo recomend his sample shop. This afternoon washed the car with a sample of Poorboys Super Sud Shampoo, then clayed, then polished with a sample of Poorboys world polish with carnauba and finished it off with AG EGP. Tyres dressed with a sample of Megs #38 Tyre & Trim gel, nice satin finish, not too much bling as you get with the Megs Endurance.

    Nice to able to use samples to try with spending a lot of money.

    ive saved myself a few quid by not buying the poorboys shampoo. The sample i bought was no better than say nxt wash etc.

    But, i have decided to buy a big bottle of the poorboys natural look dressing for the dashboard etc. Really impressed with that.

    If next weekend is warm, i'll stick on the collinite 485 but i hope the 2oz sample can do the whole car lol
