cheers,mick


Thanks for your offer Mick. I wouldn't want to bother you with this. I can order it directly. Shipping isn't that much high, an exact match to CYC's shippings, and consider CYC's £46 shipping for a gallon :)

You empty my wallet quicker than my wife Paul. I ordered a liter of Rude Wax from EBay.

I'll share my impressions could I try it.

Finally, I could try Rude Wax on the car. I bought it in a liter bottle from EBay, in a no-name one since the company is closed. I had to transfer some to a smaller container to use easier. I applied it with an MF Applicator from Eurow. It took less than 25ml's for a Passat Saloon, as the bottle pictures show the little amount used from it.

It hazes really quick which should have reminded me to buff sooner but I thought I applied so thin that it would be easy to buff them altogether. I was wrong. I had to double buff to remove the residue, even using a little pressure in some spots.

Anyway, it came up good. It filled in some minor swirls, but I guess one coat wasn't enough to make it a swirl free paint. I believe it could fill in better if I had the time to apply a second coat.

Pictures are below. I couldn't catch much light yesterday evening so I took them this morning. I know they don't show much due to strong backlight (I had to adjust the contrast) and the car was in a thin coat of dust. Sorry no 50/50's.

Overall. It was a quick wax to apply, could be easier if buffed soon. Gives a good Carnauba look, fills in a bit, and inexpensive (£13 a liter from EBay). Yet to see the durability.
