Am I correct in assuming that Rapid Aqua Wax is designed for matte finish paintwork ?
Do yourself a favour and get rid of those sponges especially if you are going to the trouble of using the 2BM (2 bucket method). Give one of these a try - Microfiber Madness Incredimitt or Incredipad.Gave my Silver Fox the 2 bucket Auto Glym treatment today
2 capfulls of shampoo in Bucket 1 - wash all over car with sponge - then do the wheels with a stiff nylon brush
Wash off with clean water from Bucket 2 using a brand new sponge
Whilst car is still wet, spray Rapid Aqua Wax on 1 panel at a time & immediately wipe off with a micro fibre cloth
Car now Good-to-Go & ready for the next batch of insects
Very Nice - and an affordable protection package as wellPictures are from when I picked up my car from the Detailers, really happy with the end result - Photos' don't really do justice to the look of the car and I now have the benefit of the Matte paint being ceramic coated.
Its a very good video to demonstrate how detailing and ceramic coatings are applied and we are about to get our P45 GG detailed using Gtechniq C1 and Exo. One thing I was uncertain about was using Gtechniq G1 glass coating on the solar roof as the manual states very clearly not to put any sort of coating on the solar roof as it may affect its performance. I have already advised our detailer not to put a coating on the solar roof and just to clean it as part of the wash stage of detailing. The Gtechniq C1 is supposed to last 2 years and future care / maintenance is supposed to be as simple as just rinse / snow foam / wash / dry.I'm sure you've all seen this, but worth posting again. Shame he doesn't say what it cost, how long it lasts, or explain future care and maintenance.
Sounds nice and simple and relative good value compared to coating.
I have a Gravity Gold P45, I'm probably going for option 1 (XPPESounds nice and simple and relative good value compared to coating.

I would strongly recommend opting for XPEL Stealth self healing PPF (paint protection film) to the front and ceramic coating all over once installed, comprising of C1 to the remainder of the body work and 2 x coats of HALO for the PPF.
I will give you the breakdown of both options below ;
- XPEL Stealth (Satin/Matt) PPF & Gtechniq C1 to rest of vehicle - £1699 +VAT
- Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer - £499 VAT
£2.5k plus ongoing maintenance. Wow, that's about 5% of the cars value in keeping it clean.
