    2 coats of 845, now what?

    I'm getting my 2009 white Honda Pilot ready for the winter in the northeast. I applied a coat of 845 yesterday and today (allowing plenty of curing time between coats). Should I now top with a paste before a spray wax or just go straight to a spray wax like CG V07 or DG AW?

    I would use Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer. V7 tends to hinder beading for whatever reason.

    Re: 2 coats of 845, now what?

    Overkill IMO. Just curious why you want to top it? Are you just looking to add some extra gloss? I think 2 coats of 845 is probably all you need "protection-wise" so if you are looking to add more protection, I'd skip the topper. If you just want some additional pop, then go for it. Personally, for me...I say "it's winter" and I'm not going to overdo it until spring comes back around. Save the spray wax for after washes.

    So far, for final spray down after washes, I have DG AW, FK Anti-Static, and BF Polymer Spray. I've liked the Finish Kare the best with the 845 so far. The other 2 seem to drag and don't buff out as slick. Others have recommended Megs D156 which I hope to try out soon.

    I think you're done. However you decide to wash during the winter you can use some AW as you dry.

    Whew, I think that's some great advice. I just finished about an hour ago and was thinking I really didn't think I wanted to coat again (I did it by hand and was getting tired).

    I would not use V7. I did the same thing this past spring and it was like V7 removed the wax (845). It beaded for a day and that was it.

    I would stop at 2 coats of 845. You shouldn't need a topper for at least a few months, if that.

    For 2 coats of #845, I recommend a good quick detailer (Mothers Showtime works very well with Collinite). I've never used a spray wax over #845, so I can't comment on that piece. If D156/UQW works as good as people say, then that or Megs UQD might be good to take a look at as well.

    Re: 2 coats of 845, now what?

    I did my first coat of 476 Saturday and just did another coat. After this, that will be pretty much it until spring time. Its going to be too cold for bucket washes, so Im going to have to figure something out. But I will also use DG951 ( duragloss aquawax ), this stuff is amazing..
