Victoria Concours RED Wax!!!

I've been meaning to try this wax out for a long time. Thanks to Allen (BigAl3), I was able to. So, I will post my initial thoughts on the product.

I got up at 5:15 to apply this wax to BOTH Marilyn and Tori, before heading to work...so the pics I have for now have no direct sun shots, as the sun was just about to rise. I did a lot of research before blindly applying, so, I used a foam applicator pad, then applied it THINLY... I mean, a light dab only maybe twice per panel. It spread really nice. I did about 2 panels, before removing. It applied quite easily for me. Removal was easy, since I didn't let it dry. Some folks were having problems with removing it...but I believe it's a combo of putting on too much and letting it dry too long.

So I finished the entire car that way... I drove it out to the driveway for some shots. First impressions, it's like a slightly glossier version of Souveran. So...maybe 1/2 way between Souveran and Fuzion??? I haven't seen it in direct light yet... but I will before my car show tonight. Maybe I'll add another coat.

Overall, it wasn't a look I was blown away by or anything...but maybe I will be later or when I use it again. On Tori's Silver paint, it's very similar to Supernatural.

I do like the strawberry scent tho. Here's the pics... you guys have seen my cars with other LSP's on it. So you tell me....does it look better or same? To me, hard to tell.

Re: Victoria Concours RED Wax!!!

I've always wanted to try this stuff. It has such a seductive name. Looks kinda like Nattys Red?

Your cars look terrific!

Supposedly Vic's Concours is the same as Raceglaze 55, as I heard Vic's makes the wax for them. It could just be a legend though. I've heard nothing but good things about either. This is up next for me to try after Souveršn. Thanks for the review.
Did you strip off your old LSP or top it?

It looks like it, but is no where like nattys red. Nattys red I did not like... it was a chore to remove. Maybe, it was because I was much less experienced back then... still, usually I try something once.

haha... you can say that again. Don't even ask how many lsp's I have. Then ask me how many I USE....

I need more pics of your SS, Mark.

As for Tori being Silver, I think in the pics above, I added SOME depth, right? That's hard to do on silver

I semi-stripped it... the prior lsp was only Souveran, so that lasted maybe 2 days. LOL. I stripped it with CG Citrus.... that's usually how I strip my top layers, unless I full clay.

thanks sir.






So anyways, I am back from our car show. I got a chance to look at Marilyn under some sunlight. The verdict? It has the gloss and depth of Souveran and Fuzion combined, but does not darken paint like Souveran does.... so my flakes were not muted and sticks out more than with Souveran. IMO, it's very similar to Fuzion. It's maybe not as wet looking as Souveran... For those of you who have tried it, what do you think?

I like the wax, but I can't say I love it yet. I might have to use it a few more times to get more used to it. It's just a different look... I love ALL my lsp's.... so, just depends what mood I'm in.

Here's how I see it.

Dark and wet look you're after? Souveran or Petes 53.

Glossy with depth and liquid sheet look? Fuzion or CG Blacklight/V7.

Somewhere in between the two, with depth? Victoria Red.

Did I confuse all of you yet? lol...


So here are some more unedited pics from the car show. You guys judge for yourself if you like the look of Victoria Red.

I had a Boss 302 park next to me, then my buddy's Taurus SHO Ecoboost. That black flake was insane...
