First clay bar, first wax, first wash...glamour shots!

First day home, I worked until about 10PM dry washing, clay barring and waxing our new 5.0 convertible. Pics inside of the garage don't do the new Guard color justice.
We put 120 miles on the car this morning just to go get breakfast and enjoy the nearly 100 degree record setting weather we are having.
Between bug splats, bird droppings and dust, the car really needed a good wash (its first) when we got home.
The only wax I use is Collinite 845 as it is sooooooooo easy to use and the shine is unreal and very durable. It makes your metal flake just POP and the reflection is perfect (see below):





And of course the TOPLESS shot all beauties must consider:

I wasn't sure how I really felt about that guard green but it's growing on me for sure. They do look way better in person. Nice work on that first wash 😍

You don't see too many of them at this point, which I really like. It is a classy color for sure. I wanted something subtle and not flashy........well as "not flashy" as a 435 HP convertible can be anyway!!

Very nice! I stopped by a local dealership this morning and they had a GT in Guard sitting out front. It was raining but I was impressed with the color. Great choice

You will love the 845..... I will offer a couple bits of advice though. Do not use as much as other waxes. Just barely haze the surface. I lightly spray my application mitt with detailing spray first, and you will find by the time you've done the whole car, that the last panel can be hazed with what's left on the mitt.....that's how little you use.

Thanks for the advice. What type of detailing spray do you use? Will have to pick some up.

I use Mother's California Gold, but I think any detailing spray would work.....I don't really wet the mitt to start, just lightly mist it so that I am not starting so dry with the 845.
Autogeek.com has some really great information on the 845 and detailing info.

Very Nice.

That's a hell of a shine.
How long did it take to do?

That's the best thing about Collinite 845. If you put it on lightly like you should, it comes off with literally two wipes of the microfiber towel. The directions say that you can rub it off immediately after application, but I let it dry for 1/2 an hour or so.
I do one third of the car at a time, go inside and watch TV or read for that 1/2 hour, go rub the wax off, apply to the next third.....etc., so it's hard for me to say how long it takes.
If you stayed at it, and in this warm weather, it would not take any where near 1/2 an hour to dry, you could easily do the entire car in less than 30 minutes.
Once I discovered 845, I threw out a full bottle of NXT......its that good.
