    Default Autobalm.

    How do the guys on here rate Bilt Hamber's Autobalm?
    I have read a little about it but it doesnt make it particularly clear if its a wax,polish etc.

    Hello mate. I have some of this and have used it occasionally when doing cars. It's more of a filler than any of those. It will mask swirl marks and slight imperfections in the paint ready to be sealed with a wax or sealant. And believe me if you apply it properly it works a treat

    Good luck

    I used it as my winter Wax (although its a sealant) Its not the easiest to apply but lasts for ages. If your wanting beading though its not for you as its beading is very poor.

    I have tried autobalm on my wifes Vectra. I thought it went on easy (they did not send me any instructions with my jar) after I read about it on the internet. But I strangely found it did not last too long??. I have now put a coat of Victoria Concours wax on and that is lasting longer. As said above it is "a good filler". I was under the impression it was more a wax than a sealent. I will have to give it another try and see how it goes.
    Colinite 915 is one of the most durable wax,s around.
    At the moment I am trying out some Finish Kare 1000P Sealent. So far I am very pleased with it. I usually prefere a Wax to a Sealent. But this 1000P is really impressing me. I hear on Detailing World it should last as long as Colinite. Only time will tell on that one though. I certanly recomend giving kp1000p a try.

    I would rate FK1000P very highly Ed. I put 2 coats on almost 2 months ago and it's still beading like mad

    Right, thats my tin on order
    Has anyone tried any of the Jorgens range. I tried their yellow Carnuba "keep r wet" glimmer wax and it was pretty good for a tenner. Doesnt last too long but the gloss was deep.
