Starting some Christmans shopping, and wondered what dodo juice wax you would recommend for a grey car? Just was thinking of getting some for the old man as he is slowly getting into the true ways of car cleaning!

I've just got a sampler pot of Supernatural but haven't had chance to try it yet. However, it was recommended to me by some knowledgable folk so I have no doubt that it will be super.

Also got the Vics concourse recommended by the same people so got myself a panel pot of that to try too.

I got told not to get too hung on the colour recommendations of the Dodo stuff so I wouldn't worry too much.

Here's mine:

Would agree that Supernatural is a top choice as would be Vic Concours. Collinite 476 should be a consideration also and if you want one of the cheaper Dodo's then go for Banana Amour. I would also get him some Lime Prime to prep the paint for the wax and maybe some clay?

TBH the key to a decent finish is in the prep work :D

Technically, you can use any of the Dodo waxes, on whatever colour. Have a look at these Dodo Juice Auto Care Sampler Kits http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/Stor ... turerId=43 and http://www.carnaubawaxshop.co.uk/shop/i ... brand_id=2

as stated above,in theory you can opt for any of them.what you will find is,the recipe is different for each one and the blend and oils etc chosen for the job.

so in essence,they all have a slightly different characteristic when used on certain paints.supernatural is the main overall product being that it has the oil quality that was found in banana armour but now has the overall longeveity in its newer V2 incarnation.

the new blend makes it even easier to use but gives you several weeks over the last version which was already pretty good to be fair.

you could try a set of panel pots if your feeling adventurous.they do several variations on the panel pot kits now.

and finally,as ahaydock rightly says,its all in the prep work.wihtout a lot of elbow grease in that dept,no amount of product and mega money wax will cover a poor base

I wasnt sure if one wax was for soft dark paint, another is for soft light paint and so on.

Thanks for your help. :D

well,they do say the purple haze and blue velvet wax's are more geared up for this with an inclination to darken up a finish slightly but cos the recipes rely on such a varied resource of oils and wax's,its far better to experiment and find something that suits 'you' rather than the other way round where your told what to use if you see what i mean.

the hard and soft wax ranges are 2 different means of applying the same thing really.so if you prefer a hard wax,then go down that road,and if your used to soft paste waxs,then the softer range might suit.

what i personally found was,the hard wax is a lot easier to gauge how much your using cos very very little is critical.less is def more when applying any wax from any make.

all ill say is,people do have there faves and i am iguilty of a lot of raving about dodojuice products.but then they suit me down to the ground.
so dont be afraid of branching out cos there is no perfect route to the glorious detail.you make your choices and a bit of a trial and error

id i was to recommend,then this would be my choice for starting out.

I recently got some sample pots of DoDo and have applied the corresponding wax to a silver and black car and have to say I've been very impressed with the depth of shine you get.

My first time using a hard wax and must admit found it hard to see where I'd applied the wax on the silver car but the results were worth it.

Just waiting to see what the durability is like compared to my other waxes.
