    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Default Collinite or Bilt Hammer Auto Balm?

    So the cold weather's here, time for winter prep. I know Collinite is the long term daddy but there's a new kid on the block. They both have there pro's and cons, the Auto Balm's a paste sealant with filling/swirl hiding properties. Anyone used both?

    One for you this Mark I think.

    If your car's paint is less than perfect then auto balm will help and as it is a sealent should last but if your paint is perfect and swirl free then I would go with collinite 476.

    Autobalm lasts and lasts. Highly recommended but apply and remove on small sections at a time.

    I haven't used Colly so can't comment, but it gets great reviews.

    The final finish depends on the prep - claying first makes a massive difference, I found this out with Autobalm. It'll pull loads of cr@p off the piant so make sure it's superclean. Best of luck.

    You couldent be more right. Its all in the prep
    1. Power wash rinse
    2. Foam.
    3. Rinse
    4 Clay
    5 Wash again
    6 Polish
    7 Sealant
    8. Wax
    9 Finishing spray.

    Stand back and be amazed. Also get some pics as its going to rain the nexted day and is always something to look at lol.
