Wow, what an incredible collection!Thanks very kind comments. I spent about 100 hours machining it and then with a friend we gave it a 2 staged ceramic coating and then I’ve just waxed it ever since to keep the wetness up that white deserves. Coatings are great but always give a sterile look and reflection
In regards of price - Collonite is a wax of champions. Its heavily laden with solvents (you can smell it) but it is a bulletproof product and ive used it for over 15 years and still do to be honest.
Ive collected wax for around 12 years. I used to have one of the largest collections in Europe I think when it was all Zymol, Swissvax, Chemguys etc before all the home brews started and many many companies shooting out from their bedrooms with waxes all manufactured at the same chemical companies with their own labels on.
I found it a little sad if I'm honest and at that point about 6 years ago I stopped collecting because the value of new waxes just wasn't there, or the quality if im honest.
Its very hard to understand wax and the formulations. Carnauba being a palm in the Brazilian rainforest secretes carnauba to protect itself from the rain, when extracted and pulped your left with a rock solid yellow by product stronger than concrete in hard raw form. Its only when it bleached it becomes white and this is when the manufacturers start adding their ingredients with %.
When a company states its 100% Carnauba it can be misleading.
Its better to have 10% by volume of pure carnauba in a wax than a company portraying they have 100% carnauba, because that 100% they state is 100% carnauba of the 1% actually in it and that 1% is not mixed but pure. I see it all the time, or when you read the ingredients they are using Carnauba SAP, like comparing a coffee bean with Mellow birds, the dust coming off the beans.
Here is a small part of my collection. Ive some waxes I formulated and asked to made for me also,. metallic waxes in Gold with metallic flake as I've been asked to prepare some dark cars for competition and they wanted a gold flake on a solid black colour so they stood out.View attachment 73462View attachment 73463View attachment 73464View attachment 73465View attachment 73466View attachment 73467View attachment 73468View attachment 73469View attachment 73470View attachment 73472
To be fair, that’s a stunning finish, your car looks amazing and I’m not usually a fan of white.
