    Didnt see anyone say that Carnauba was dead.

    Is a carnuba really necessary?

    No one made the statement that carnuba is dead. I originally asked the question "Is it necessary to put a carnuba over a sealant (in my case DG105) if the carnuba would create a issue when I decide to reapply the 105 for continued protection. I was asking in the context of bonding issues.

    Actually necessary is not the correct word for me to use. I really should have said "if I use a carnuba over the 105...."

    That's my thinking as well;
    just wanted to make sure.

    DG 105 can be topped with anything especially with 601 used. No you might not want to 105 915 105 same day but why would you. The fun part for most on this forum is to use different products to see the result..

    I have and use DG105 and Colli 915 often and see no issues using either one as a topper. 915 over 105/601 was my winter prep on a black DD two winters ago and it lasted well into late spring before I did my spring polishing. DG105 has some cleaner content, so I would expect it would hook up to Colli OK, especially if it's been on long enough that it's starting to wear thin.
    Obviously, conventional wisdom is that we apply the synthetic sealant first, then the carnauba product after, but as Michael Stoops from Meguiars once said about layering, "I've never opened the garage in the morning to find the wax I applied yesterday had fallen to the floor"
