some Collinite No. 476S - Super Doublecoat Auto Wax ,

How many layers would you put on and yould you put any other products over the top of that?

Give it a good break between applying the layers - Collinite 476S does have some cleaners in there which can remove underlying layers. If they're cured (as in at least one hour between applications) then you should be okay.

Yes, use a nice sealant underneath but make sure that layer is cured, too. I have used it over Duragloss 105 (as mentioned) and Chemical Guys Jetseal 109 to name a couple I have really enjoyed - both are quite fast bonding sealants. Also, Car-Lack68 NSC seems to be a perfect partner for prep.

For the wax alone, yes ... 2-3 layers is fine. I'm not sure you'll see much improvement after just one to be honest, but I like to give a couple of applications to get it started. Top up with another layer when the beading ceases to be as impressive as it was when you first applied - that should be a good couple of months even in the worst conditions and as a layer of protection, it should last a good six months.

I would go for 2, maybe 3 and then look to top up with the likes of Zaino Z8 or Dodo Red Mist.
