If you've never tried Collinite 845 Wax, you owe it to yourself to try it.

When I first discovered Collinite 845 a couple of years ago, I threw out every other partly used wax that I had in the cabinet. I actually gave away a full bottle of NXT2.
845 is amazing in how it shines, lasts, and the ease of use. It is not expensive, and you use to little that a 16 oz. bottle will last you for 8 to 10 applications on your Mustang.
It brings out the metalflake superbly:


The depth is truly amazing:

Thanks! Best place is on line....Amazon or EBay. It's usually around $17-$18 for the bottle, and some throw in a free microfiber towel and free shipping.
Autogeek has it as well, sometimes at a good price, but regardless, they also have great instructions and review of 845.

Thanks, do you use a sealant after this or just leave the wax as the top coat. New to detailing so I'm trying to get step by step info

All I do at the first of the season is clay bar, and I use Griot's Garage clay along with Mother's California Gold Detailing spray as the lube.
I then apply the 845 VERY thin -- all you do is just haze the surface, let it dry and wipe it off with a good microfiber towel. I then do just 1/3 of the car every time I wash it, as it takes only a few minutes, and most of that is letting the 845 dry.
I do not use anything other than the 845 --- no sealant, no other shining product. The 845, and a couple of coats of that is all you will need.
I have heard the 845 called the "detailers secret", and I agree.

I've heard that it is great on boats due to its durability. I'll bet an untreated boat picks up 5+ mph after a good shine with this stuff!
In some of the bigger cities, the boat shops is where you can pick this up, but I recommend online because I never know if the person asking has that kind of shop in their town.

I like CQuartz because it's a silica sealant. Washing the car after applying CQuartz is a snap. BUT. It's expensive.

I don't drive my vert through car washes at all....but on the cars that I did....845 was the only wax where the blowers completely dried the car. 845 beads like crazy!

I don't run my cars through car washes because they're dropped too low to be on conveyer tracks,.. And the convertible can drip water with high pressure spray nozzles. I use a smaller car wash that has no tracking to pull/push.

I have used the 845 for about 2 or 3 wax jobs now and I will have to agree, it is impressive. Its a great last step protection wax which usually average detailers use a glaze, but this gives it an excellent shine and protects for up to 6 months if I remember correctly.

845 shine vs EuroTech 7000

I'll try it, I use EuroTech 7000 polish/glaze and it's about the same price from a detail shop.
