    Re: Collinite 915 and 476 Side-By-Side Comparo

    Shot the temp of a neighbors Ford sort of the same color as yours at 146F. The asphalt 124 and the sand/dirt at 115. Outside temp was91. Summer is coming

    That kind of heat just eats LSP`s for lunch. P21S can be toast after just days in the summer. However, IME, the look lasts longer than the protection. Back in the days of "feed the paint", the mentality was that the oils and stuff in high-quality waxes go much further than protection, in that they rejuvenate the paint, and this effect lasts a decent amount of time. I like to think this is true for clearcoats, but it was likely more true for single stage paints.

    Re: Collinite 915 and 476 Side-By-Side Comparo

    WaxAddict:
    Does one look glossier or shinier that the other as time as progressed, in your subjective visual observation???

    I only ask because if they ALMOST look identical to you and to 90-95% of the casual observers on your vehicle, WHY spend more on a wax (915) than some wax that has almost the same look and protection (476S) for less money? I bought 915 hoping (thinking) that the (purported) higher carnauba wax content would give me a glossier/shinier look than 476S. SOOO, am I fooling myself?? Just saying.....

    Dont forget the ease of use factor... 476 can be a bit more difficult than 915, at least in my experience

    WacAddict- The "feed the paint" thing applies to older single stage, not b/c or the newer (urrethane/etc.) ss, though something that`s really oxidized might get a bit of benefit. All about the paint chemistry...not that I have a proper understanding of it

    I`ve posted before about how the guys at Collinite said that they use 476S, and only offer the 915 (at its price) because customers wanted/pay more for something with more carnauba.

    jrock645- Not to play Blam the Victim, but I`m always surprised when somebody finds 476S to be difficult (to any degree). It`s not Souveran-easy, but it`s awfully close. You`re using a damp applicator, right? Just wondering why the YMMV thing works out that way for this wax....
