    Could this be TURTLE WAX??!!

What 303 and Seal N Shine have in common is they`re both heavy products. Touchless Sealant especially, this stuff has been a bit of a nightmare in terms of wipeability and I`ve seen some very heavy streaking. Seal N Shine you can wipe it clean but it`s definitely not designed to be a light topper like Bead Maker or V7, and I`ve seen some reports from guys with darker paints that have seen heavy streaking working on hot surfaces. I also noticed slight streaking when topping my 1 year untopped section of CQUK 3.0 with Seal N Shine, and a slight drop in hydrophobic performance as opposed to CQUK topped with Bead Maker which has been a great duo in the late term.

    Companies will make claims with regards to chemical resistance, and Seal N Shine has finally offered what it really looks like to have an oleophobic and hydrophobic chemical resistance to a wide variety of chemicals and solvents. I think it`s a great addition to their lineup and a clear choice for those that want proven visible chemical resistance. HCW, CMX, and SNS have all been great products to work with and test out this year. Different strengths and weaknesses with each product.

    Completely agree with you on the 303 being heavy. Have a jet black suburban and for the first few washes the 303 was an absolute pita. Seemed to tone down after being subjected to rain for a week and itís much better in streaking. Main thing I noticed was streaking in glass, especially windshield wipers leaving a visible line where they stopped and changed direction. Also the other glass was near impossible to get streak or smudge free. I gave up and waited a few days after initial application and it got better but still not something Iíll use again on a black vehicle.

    Don, are you using this over a base layer of protection or as a dedicated lsp? I ask because I am tempted to try over my base of 1000p.

    I put Meguiar`s Hybrid CW on the car a month or so ago, I`ve heard that Turtle Wax says that the Seal N Shine is a good topper for a coating, so it should be fine over your 1000p.

    Must be a good OTC product. Out of stock at our advanced auto parts. Their wax as you dry, I thought, was outstanding. Used it in the past.

    Yeah, nobody in my area has the product for sale. Nothing on Amazon apart from a projected date. Is this TW product brand-new?

    This really is an eye opener especially for old buzzards like myself that grew up with Turtle Wax & Simoniz......and hated them! Thank you for pointing it out via the video.

    That was was the best tire coating ever! Then they came out with that stupid spray tire coating.

    I`ll be interested to hear how it works/doesn`t over FK1000P, and whether its use interferes with adding more FK later.

    RTexasF- Heh heh, yeah...when Meguiar`s came out with M16 in the late `50s my mother and her sister were overJOYED with how user-friendly it was compared to Simoniz!

    Ya know...I`ve *never* used TW! I used plenty of their ZipWax Car Wash back in the day, and I had a little green plastic TW air freshener in `77, but actually waxing with Turtle Wax? I never did try it.
