Many thanks to Luke88
for the sample bottle to try out.
I have used this a couple of times now and do like it, but I do have one issue with it. Well, two. Read on ...
Read the blurb over here at AutoGeek: http://www.autogeek.net/wg5500.html
... essentially, it is a deep gloss sealant designed to give the warm and deep looks of a wax coupled with the gloss and longevity of a sealant. There is that one warning about application and moisture - don't apply late in the day and do allow it to fully cure (some 12 hours after haze removal) before getting the paint wet.
I've had some fun over the last couple of days reviving the looks of our Classic 900 Convertible - a much needed machine polish which I intended to do a couple of years ago and again last year, but didn't get the time, or weather.
After a machine polish with Scholl S17+ and then two applications of Meguiars #3 glaze, the second as equal portions of Dodo Juice Micro Prime, then IPA wipedown and finally a wash and dry, we're ready to apply.
The product is a thick but pourable yellow liquid, which applies in a wet layer which spreads so well. Let it haze - the formal instructions say 30-40 minutes, but I found 10-15 was quite sufficient for a swipe test.

Removal is almost effortless. The haze comes off so easily, with only the slightest pressure.

See the dust? It does dust. Perhaps over-application, perhaps not ... it does dust. That's the first of the two issues I mentioned.
The other is that beading is not all that cracking. Two layers applied a day apart doesn't do much to help either. Don't get me wrong, it does repel water, but inevitably you get some standing water which does not look all that attractive compared to any wax or many sealants.
Looks are deep, glossy and very attractive. Yes, very much like a wax.
So, 8/10 ... there are so many sealants that don't dust and do bead well that might pull a 9/10. This is a good product and 8/10 certainly reflects that. I like it! I've used it under a fairly neutral wax which will deliver me that last bit of attractive beading and once compromised, the sealant is still there doing its thing.
