Hi guys,
Can anyone recommend me a good wax or sealant to get a deep shine from my polished metal (metallic grey) civic?

I know metallic grey isn't the best colour to get a deep shine but something to help would be good. Something to help bring out the metallic in the paint would be good too.

At the moment i'm just using what I have, AG extra gloss protection and Meguirs Step 3 - Deep Crystal Carnauba Wax.

Both seem to work well together (EGP on first) but wondering if there's anything better for this colour...

Minefield mate, a sealant like FK1000p is good on that colour.

Bazillions of other products, some are budget dependant etc.

The EGP & Megs are not very good IMO, I tried them many years ago. You will get better durability from the FK1000p & the added bonus is you can seal your alloys with it.

If you were nearer I'd give you a couple of samples to try.

Thanks, FK1000 sounds good, just read up on it. That's the thing, so many other products I didn't know where to start! Thanks for the offer of the samples though!

Will a sealant give better results than a wax on this colour?

A sealant will give a reflective finish & bring out the metallic flake. You could add a wax over it which will give it a glossier/wet finish. Remember a wax can go over a sealant, but not the other way around.

Try the FK first, then try & get a sample of a good wax & put it on over the FK to try a different look.

Thanks for the advice, think I will try the FK first and go from there
