Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

I recently purchased a new 2010 GMC Savana AWD. This vehicle we be used for flyfishing and getting into the boonies. I will be driving dirt roads, wash board, mud, snow etc. So it will be exposed to a lot of dirt and dust and the elements. I want to protect the paint and don't want to be waxing often, 3 times a year, maybe 4 at most. I want the longest best protection and I am not concerned with show car shine. Just a good long lasting wax or sealant that is easy on/off. I have been looking at and have narrowed it down to these 4 products but haven't made a final decision or purchse, Klasse AIO and Sealant Glaze, Finish Kare 1000P and Collinite 845.
I want to buy something this week.
Which should I go with?

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

I can only speak for the #845, it is very easy to apply and remove and it lasts me through some pretty nasty salt and gravel covered roads in the winter here in PA. It looks nice too but I don't know that anything is going to last through the conditions that you have described. I would think to have protection at all times, you may have to apply it monthly

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

The only one I've used of the 3 is Collinite 845. I applied it to one of our cars back in January. The car sits outside 24/7. It has been through lots of snow and ice, rain, pollen, etc. All I have done since application is try to wash regularly and maintain with Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax. It has been holding up very nicely. I highly recommend 845.

I thought I was going with the Klasse twins for the body and FK1000P for the roof but now I am wavering and thinking about just going with the 845 for the entire vehicle.

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

Do you have to put the 845 on every month in the winter in PA to maintain paint protection?
I can do a pre-winter detail in late fall and wash the vehicle regularly in winter but I can't do monthly waxing....not gonna happen.

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

Hey Fly from personal experience Collinte 845 will be your best all around choice . Finish Kare is nice but if you put it on to thick its a bear to get off .And have heard the twins are kind a pain to apply. I love 845 you just have shake the snot out off it to get it to a liquid state. But other than that is Easy on easy off.


LOL Steve

I heard Klasse AIO goes on/off esy but the Sealant Glaze can be a little tough getting off especially if you apply too much.
Finish Kare 1000p is supposed to be good long lasting stuff too.

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

Having both 845 and FK 1000P I would go with the FK 1000P sealant. They are both super easy to apply and remove. Both have superior durability and beading/sheeting but looks wise I like FK 1000P much much better. It gives the CC the appearance of a thicker and glossier coat.

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

FK1000p is very good and has very good Durability . I have used 4or 5 times and constantly fight the thin coat application . I do like the end result just not the work get it there. But Collinte 476& 915 can be just as bad to remove i usually stick to wipe on /wipe off them and very happy with results. I have many different waxes and alway seem to go with 845 .

Re: Klass AIO vs Collinite 845 vs FK1000P

I find it extremely easy to get a thin application with FK1000p or any type of paste wax in general. The key thing in thin applications of hard waxes is having a damp/moist applicator. This prevents the applicator from absorbing too much of the wax and thus helps to prevent over application.
