Wax or sealant?
Sorry, never noticed this section before!
I have been reading up on the differences between wax and sealants. Wax usually means natural products like Carnauba which give high gloss but only last 1 -3 months. Apparently sealants are actually synthetic waxes, which last 6-9 months, and are shinier (more reflective) but less glossy.
I read an article saying darker colours often benefit from wax, whereas lighter colours tend to look better under sealants. It then goes on to say that waxes can dull metallic colours - so for metallics you should use a sealant.
I have a Misano Blue Brera - so what should I do? It's a dark colour but it's metallic - so should I therefore go for a sealant and have the benefit of it lasting longer, which is tempting as my fiance gets jealous if I spend too much time on the car anyway!
I have Supagard on the car already, if that changes anything. I know you shouldn't polish Supagard as you eat the coating, but have read that you can wax/seal over it.
I saw Lord Melchs red Alfa with Pete's 53 wax on it - looks great, almost ordered it but mine is a metallic colour. The same people make this synthetic sealant, what do you reckon: Chemical Guys Wet Mirror Finish
