Sealant and Wax Recommendations

Can somebody recommend a good sealant that is easy to apply?

Also, my car is Alpine White, will the application of a wax over sealant be a significant improvement to the looks? I understand it will add depth on dark colours but I've heard somebody mentioned that it doesn't do much for white. If it is recommended, please also recommend a good wax that will go over this sealant. Thanks.

I use klasse, and love it, but i find it extremely hard to remove. Even when adding a dime size dab per panel as suggested.

Wax will always bring a nice finishing shine to your car at the end so i wouldn't skip that step. I use pinnacle souveran, and absolutely love it. Works good on dark colored cars though.

If your looking for a good high quality sealant you should try Autoglym Super Resin Polish its easy to use and it provides a great shine its one of my all time favorites to use. Or try Chemical Guys Jet Seal I have used this in the past and really liked it.

I've been using Autoglym Super Resin Polish, followed by Autoglym HD Wax.

Great stuff!

I use Poorboys EX-P topped up with Natty's Blue for ease of use and am pretty happy with the results.

Collinite and then topped off Victoria Wax Mmm Mmm good

If you want something that is very easy to apply and remove definitely give Collinite 845 a try. It's fantastic. I boost that wax with a sprits of Optimum Car Wax every couple of washes however 845 is so easy to reply that when I get the urge to wax I grab that instead of a spray wax. It's so increadibly smooth after application Of course remember to prep your paint first.

Natty blue is for dark cars, not white cars, they have a light colour version.

Victoria wax is always a good one, Collinite is very durable but doesn't have as much shine. which is why I suspect Nikku goes over with Victoria.

Klass sealant is also better for a protectant. I'm still trying to use up my Natty's white, which has been good to me, quite a long lasting carnuba wax. I might try dodo juice or victoria next.
