Great info!! I just order Klasse AIO and SG. As I have an Electric Red EGT and a Silver Accord, do you think I will need a Carnuba wax also?

Hey Ron,

Nope, no need for carnauba with that combo! You will also notice that it will last long!

It's a little trickier to work with but as you go along, you will figure out a good way to work it! Seems the longer you let SG sit, the easier it's to remove!


Pop, no prob! It's a hell of a drive though! rofl.gif

Thanks Bigs,

Now I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough for two days to get this done!! I find that detailing cars is a relaxing way to spend a weekend. I'll take some takepicture.gif when I'm done.
