I did 3 coats on mine. 5 months later, water is still beading nicely on them.

Cheers for that Andrew and Andy , so you noticed the plates I just had a mad 5 mins mad moment I don’t think it’s ok to do but will keep my fingers crossed .
Yes I do like my mercury grey I was helped as it was overcast so putting the wax on the car was just right and I left it on for 30 mins before I polished off .
When we washed the car what was last done March 2017 the water just fell off so the wax is working from last year .

So I will reapply the poor boys wheel stuff again at the weekend . You don’t need much as we put to much on really with the first wheel . Also I used the autoglym tyre gel that looks good and that has lasted over the winter as well .

I just use autoglym detailing spray now for a quick wipe over .

Don’t know if it’s me but the car always drives better when washed . . :beer:

:agree: the number plates do suit the car I have some for my Capri but probably only use for the shows as if you get pulled over by the police it's a £1000 fine, but would the police know any different?
