Hey guys been a busy boy.

I machine polished my car, well half of it. :buffer:

I like a wee test, so I just bought some finish kare 1000p sealant and I have a sample of Chemical Guys Jetseal so I thought why not test the two ? Both known as long lasting sealants and I happen to have both.

Ok enough chit chat.

Obviously there isn't much I can say finish wise, both look nice not a lot of difference really.

I will update this when I wash the car and let you guys known how it lasts.

sounds great! i'm thining about ordering some fk1000p for this year--since the dirt shedding seems to be better than collinite.
Decades ago, Accumulator sneezed on a car. The owner noticed that his car was imbued with something today this substance is called clear coat.

That depends if he applied the sealants with a leather or fur Sporran. :croc:

And if there are updates, did you use 2 hands of jetseal or just 1? My experience (limited to wheels) shows that JS is more reflective/brighter than FK, but FK sheds dirt much more efficiently.

I always found the opposite - JS109 seemed to deepen slightly, 1000P always bright and sharp.

Having not used JS on proper paint my input is quite limited, thus Mike your findings may be the truth.

I would like to try the JS 2 coats approach after OS runs out, as JS is *for me* much easier to work with than FK1000p.

I think thats the most common finding with 109 vs 1000P. 1000P, for me has always been on prepped paint or at least smooth decontaminated paint and I think that plays a part. We sell alot of 1000P and I always tell people thinthinthin, but even with the thinness of application some people run into trouble - which kills me because its always been easy for me to use.

If I had to predict, assuming he still washes the car correctly and carefully, JS109 will have dropped off, 1000P should still be there and releasing dirt/beading nicely.

I have not had much luck getting any durability out of JS109. I find M16 or 846 is much better. Or if you want to compare sealant to sealant both BF and Zaino blow it away. Haven't tried FK1000 in years.

Are any of CG sealants any good any more? I like the butter wax they sent me due to its ease of use.

I like Jetseal, but the price is too high especially when compared to other premium sealants. Its good stuff, just pricey.

Yeah CG needs a price check on quite a few of their offerings when compared to the competition.

I'd be tempted to try it out if they had a smaller size.

IMHO - Jet seal never looked worth a sh1t unless it was topped with a good wax, the ONLY sealant I ever said that about.

As far as their sealants go I think M-Seal takes the prize, both for performance and cost.
