    Simple Duragloss question

    Is it ok to top Duragloss 105 or 111 with a pure carnauba wax?

    Yeah I think it should work. 105 is pretty versatile and will accept anything on top.

    I use it as a base layer polish for applying a sealant.

    Isn't 105 considered a sealant?

    Sure is. Very little cleaning capability and no cut.

    I've been doing that for years. The past few winters, my Black DD has had a cocktail of DG501 to clean, followed by DG105, both mixed with DG601. I've used Collinite 915, 476 or FK1000p as the final layer and it lasts nearly forever on a DD parked outside 24/7 in PA.
    After my spring cleanup, I topped 105 with Natty's Black.
    Last night I did another pass of 105/601, topping it with FK1000p. Normally, I'd play around with beauty waxes in the summer, but I have wild cherry trees overhanging my driveway and now that the fruit is ripening, the combination of bird droppings and half eaten fruit are playing havoc with the finish. Hopefully, my normal winter combo will be more resistant to the garbage from above, while still looking good.

    Feel free to top with your fav carnuaba. 105 is a great sealant on its own but if you want more of a carnuaba look feel free to top it.

    Thanks for all the input. Just started using Duragloss this year. Trying to keep my 2014 BLACK 4runner protected and looking good. I'm just a weekend warrior with OCD and takes pride in my ride.

    Yes....but why ? I will 501 - 105 - 111, all mixed 4:1 with 601 and let each layer cure for 24 to 48 hrs. But I like the "shiny hiny" look. Of course, regular maintenance with any DG product with Aquawax gets me nearly a year of solid protection. (Ask me about the "down to the bone" DG technique I will do on my wife's black suv for winter.)

    Yeah it supposedly is but I use it as a base layer as minor correcting/cleansing polish. Use that or the DG101 which is also a great base layer.
