    Do you recall how much you were using per panel?

    Re: Review: Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax

    Nice review, Mike. I am also shocked this is your first time using this product. Very cool project you had there!

    I have used and will use this product a lot. Not sure why Collinite won’t put a different cap on it after years of people requesting it. No big deal tho, I just swapped it out as you did.

    I like paste wax personally but this and WG DGPS are about the only liquids I consistently use. Liquids are super easy to apply by machine. 845 goes on most of my winter details that call for a wax/sealant.

    I have never had any hazing issues with this wax. Shake well, spread thin and let properly haze up.

    I usually wear soft pants when detailing for obvious reasons with pockets that fit a bottle 845. I keep the bottle in my pocket and my body heat keeps it in a nice liquid state.

    I have gotten over 50 applications out of one bottle..... I always machine apply then I just keep the pad in a marked ziplock bag. That way I always have a primed and ready to go pad.

    I always felt that it is such a great value and a top performer. My respect to Collinite for making a great product cheap.

    Collinite 845 is one of my favorite LSPs. It lasts for months and I have never experienced any ghosting. The secret is thin coats. A little goes a long way. It can be difficult to work with in colder temperatures for it will gel up. I’m still waiting for PBMG to come out with the Collinite warmer.
    I believe in treating everybody with respect, and clean cars. That’s what I believe in.

    I enjoyed this review and the commentary in the thread. 845 is a hall of famer.

    Re: Review: Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax

    845 is probably top of my list for a durable, nice reflecting wax. I've only had the hazing happen when applied too heavy. I also do a second, final wipe down after the vehicle is complete with a new towel. I've had the same bottle for years, it just lasts.

    Sorry for the slow reply. I haven't been on in a few days.

    I don't remember exactly how much I used, but it wasn't much. A little goes a long way. I think I typically started with an nickel sized drop on the pad. After a while the pad will become saturated and I remember doing a panel or two at the end of the job with nothing but what already on the pad. As the job stretched on, I steadily applied less product to the pad.

    I spoke to the owner of the Pontiac, he said the car looked GREAT on display in full sun at the show.

    I asked him if he took any pictures and he said "no". I'm sure someone took pictures of the event so when I find some, I'll share them here.
