    looks pretty good. you can also use bleche white to clean the tires.

    if you're going to use a stand alone sealant, you could go to Optimum Polish and get a little more cut than Poli-Seal.

    Sounds like this is going to take a day or 2!

    Maybe longer than that. I was under the impression poly seal was a polish? To be used with a top coat.

    After looking maybe I don't need a stand alone sealer. The optimum is an all in one.

    Exactly why I recommended it. Poli-Seal has a really wet look too and is pretty slick. It will pretty much disappear into the paint (if it doesn't, you are using too much) but you can keep working it a bit longer. I spread on 5, buff in for 3-4 passes, moving the PC 1-2" per second and it pretty much clears out, very little left to wipe off.

    I know poli-seal is a very light polish how often can it safely be used on clear coated finishes?

    You could use it several times a year for the next 10 and be just fine.

    Personally I don like the Next Generation NXT Insane Shine Tire Coating

    Just don't care for the finish and I have even tried wiping it down the next day.

    It is just a personal thing though.

    Too shiny for me too, but apparently that is what minus needs for the firetrucks.
