Trying to get the skinny on Klasse AIO, SG

ok, before my iq is challenged, i'm really new to actually caring for the paint, instead of just washing it, so easy on the :flame: -ing.

if i get this right, klasse aio/sg are basically a synthetic wax/sealant system... and for the deep show car look, putting a coat or two of caranuba wax after the klasse aio sealed will make the little girls squeel... :confused: :p

but can you just wash your car regularly with klasse aio? or should i just wash with sonus gloss shampoo or the like?

just trying to straighten things out...

thanks in advance for any insight.

I don't think you need to apply the AIO/SG but every few months.

You are correct.The Klasse "twins" are sealants. The AIO is the Prue cleaner plus a sealant (I use this on my wheels), The sealant glaze is just a sealant.
As for "topping" the SG with a carnuaba be sure you are happy with the number of "coats" you have of the SG. I usually apply 4 coats to my vehicles. Then add the carnuaba wax topper. Be sure to let the SG "Cure" for 24 hours before applying more SG.
When I say "Curing" I mean after you applied it and removed the residue. For carnuaba I use P21S or Sovereign.
For washing the car I really like 1Z Perls shampoo. I do have Sonus, but I like the way 1Z Lets the water "sheet off" the car. Sonus does give the Klasse more of a shine, so I trade off, If I am feeling lazy or in a hurry, I will wash with the 1Z.(less drying) If I want a little more sparkle in the paint I will use the Sonus.(More drying)
