    Allot of protection is determined by the actual product used, the surface preparation to ensure the product properly bonds to the finish, this is very important.

    I use sealants topped with waxes such as Collinite 845 and get 5 months of solid protection through a long snowy New England winter.

    You got a bird bomb, no etching, and you are complaining?

    Wax, sealants, and even coatings are a sacrificial barrier to protect your paint/clear.
