    Just picked it up today, have yet to use it.

    What is it comparable to?

    Comparible in function to Vanilla Moose or S100 SEC. It is a final glaze with a lot of polishing oils so the paint will look very wet after you top it with wax. Make sure you put it on very thin. Use a terry cloth towel initially to buff off the excess, then follow with a microfiber towel.

    About 3-6 months if you keep a wax over it.

    I'm not very happy with it. I put a drop the size of a dime on a pad and worked it into my hood. I tried removing the excess with a couple of terry clothes, and mf towels... and it still left a nasty streaky residue...

    cleaned right up with an application of S100 SEC though :bigthumb:

    ...but i tend to have shitty luck with various products. :(

    #7 is an old school product that came out before clearcoats. Looks great once you get the hang of it, but #81 Hand Polish or #3 Machine Glaze get you the same wet look and are much easier to work with.

    i like it works awsoem one my singe stage paint blazer you relay have to work it in till there is almost nothign there then let it haze then you have to buff it back off not the easiest product to use but good long lasting results

    also make sure the car is dry if you get any water in it expect it to take 4 times as long to get back off

    I thought it would be horrible after all the things I read on here, but I gave it a shot. (since I already bought it a while back)

    As long as I had 2 terry and one mf towel, I was fine... always use one terry cloth for first wipe, 2nd terry for 2nd wipe (that cloth stayed looking relatively clean) and finish with the MF. After the 2nd terry cloth, it looked "done" but the mf REALLY brought out the shine on the last pass.

    Followed that with a coat of S100 paste wax... so far so good. Yesterday was a LONG day. I can't believe you professional detailers out there can do more than one of these a day!
