Does it need a completely product-free surface or can it be put on top of something like NSC?

yromulus - I didn't do a whole heap of prep other than wash the car. I reckon it would be a good topper to something like Car-Lack68 NSC.

SD - Placing this product against others out there, I put this very much as a liquid version of Bilt Hamber Auto Balm combined with a more solid version of Swissvax Nano Express. Combine those features and you've got this.

I wonder what the base ingredient is? How much for the prtoduct and how many applications you reckon it will do? :-k

Magic jelly beans, I think, although I can't find it on the MSDS :lol:

The 500ml bottle retails for somewhere under a tenner. I think RRP is £9.99. Many retailers are doing it for a lot less.

I have gone over my SAAB 9-5 (which is a big car) once, fully and again, partially ... and only used maybe an inch down in the bottle.

The re-beading at the first wash after so much mileage is very encouraging indeed. I think this one will last well.

Ive used it a couple of times. The car stays cleaner longer.

Even after a rainstorm.

Its a cracker.

Not half ... I love rainstorms now, almost as much as I do with a fresh coat of Supernatural Hybrid on the car.

My bad ... £9.99 is the RRP for Wheel Shield. Still, you can get shield for under a tenner - eBay (where I got mine) or these guys? I can't vouch for the seller: http://www.a1motorstores.co.uk/catalogu ... clo17500en

Paul....A1 motorstores is a large chain of owner-operated franchised retail shops selling anything car related and have been around for years. I see that they have a shop up your way at Clekheaton.

These Armour products have been around for a long time if i'm not mistaken.....if its the same product company be careful......in the mists of time when i was working we were introduced to Armour for all sorts of wonderful products.......at that time polymers were not well known and in their infancy.....we used it a finish on the rubber floor mats in all of our vehicles also the rubber trim,plastic trim, ect
Until complaints of carpets and rugs being out of control in the cars people slipping all over the cars so we had to abandon the Armour stuff......it was comical until we had a car in for paintwork ....then it was found that the over spray from the Armour had contaminated the paint and spraying was almost impossible........maybe since then we have got over these problems and the Armour is now ok to use but just a warning.......it was a long time ago though....... :-"

I remember those reports! But I'm sure the products had a warning saying do not use on car controls. I had dash wipes which did say that. :-k
