I haven't tried my sample of banana gloss yet but it seems very simliar to Zymol cleaner wax from your review, it seems very good for a quick detail

I'll do a review of Primo Amigo for you this weekend or next (on my parents black swirly monster). I'm waiting for Aquartz ironcut too, the car was last clayed about 20k miles ago!

Yes, it includes a car park and an RS Focus

I would imagine that the cleaning agents are making the biggest difference, can't wait to try it.... it may a bit late to try it tonight

Good way of putting it that Jim!

With regads to the Banana Gloss...

Just emailed Prima through their contact point on their site and got an email back in minutes from Joel Blake, the MD which was very nice. Here's his response regarding cleaners and layering cure times.

Hi Phil

Banana Gloss can be layered with 2-3 hours between each layer to allow the resin to set. As for cleaners, you will find that the solvent content can put a dent in an uncured sealant. But generally these solvents evaporate before any damage is done.

For more info please contact either your local supplier, or the manufacturer directly Prima Car Care: Premium Wax, Polish & More

Very impressed with the response time and help from Joel.

Hope this helps, Phil

I have found a sealant i.e Jeteal 109 really delivers a fantastic gloss and shine on well prepped paint. Add a layer of two of a quality wax, Pete's 53 or 5050 for that extra zing and beading.

Looking good, fair play.

Never tried a sealent.

Seeing as I've just bought some HD wax and still have a load of megs step 3 left I'll stick to that for the rest of the year!! Lol.

Sometimes I wish I had an old banger, would be a lot cheaper to look after when it comes to detailing!!! Haha.
