How do you like Rejex and do you need to polish chrome tips after #0000 steel wool? I use 1Z chrompflege but it takes some elbow grease to get them right.

#0000 steel wool to clean up the crud & black boogers on the tips first, then you can use whatever polish you want. if your trying to clean everything with just the polish you are wasting your time & energy.
yes i like rejex.

Collinite 476S = proof that a price is just a price & does not = a reflection in the waxes performance.

the proof is in the pudding, & the pudding cost less than $20 bucks a tin!





























Thanks for checking out my work. this is how a fresh paint job is suposed to be cared for. some 3M Hand Glaze as a temp protection, then about a month or so later some real wax!

Great post with great work on the Honda. I cannot wait to buy some Collinite 476S to use on my E34. The reviews of that product are over the top!

What do you mean by pita to work with, is it hard to apply/buff? How is it compared to megs 16 ?

i never used megs 16 before. i work with water for application & removal because its a thick wax & can streak up. the water helps remove the wax.
