    Default F348 Spider with A-Glaze applied today

    VERY pleased with the mirror finish, and the deep red it's brought out

    2 guys worked continuously for over 6 hours. Steps were:

    - wash
    - dry
    - preparation coat
    - 4 coats of final glaze
    - activation

    Applied to paintwork, glass and wheels.

    Thanks guys

    Tony, I believe they have a preparation that removes it. Can't imagine why I'd want to though

    Ken, see you in an hour

    Do they spray it on or wipe it on?

    I don't really understand why you would want to do this to a Ferrari. Surely it is a cherished and loved car that deserves your total commitment. You are simply paying to have somebody slap on a paint sealant and charge you the earth for it. Why? Did they prep the surface properly? Is it really contaminant and swirl free? Otherwise you'll be sealing these in too and only paying someone more money for defect removal later. Which will also remove the protection you have just paid wads for BTW.

    The hype surrounding these types of products really pi$$es me off. It leads you to believe that these products double the life of your paintwork. Well any sealant would do that. And notice that they tend to give you a wonderful "4 year warranty" on new cars. Yet only half that on used cars. Only 2 years on used car? Wonder why that is? ;)

    I can guarantee you that your paint will not fade in 4 years with a "normal" sealant applied at regular (6 month intervals) topped with a quality Carnauba wax. Why wouldn't a Ferrari owner want to do this? I would if I had one!!

    Sorry if this upsets you but I hate to see good money chucked away!

    Harly wax gets some great reviews. It's good stuff. I'm a Zymol man myself but have a considerable collection of others too. I wouldn't bother with a sealant during the summer myself as Harly and other good waxes have great durability and UV protection built in. That is provided you are prepared to re-wax every 4 weeks. Personally if I had a Ferrari I'd wax it every 2 weeks!

    Some people don't like waxing which is why they choose a sealant. I like doing it myself but many people don't.
