    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    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.
