Bilt Hamber Autobalm Beading Shots
 
It was pouring out so I decided to let the G sit out for a couple minutes, parked it back inside. It has one coat of Bilt Hamber Autobalm applied on the 14th of August. So it's doing well as expected. The beading isn't as tight as say Collinite 845, but it still beads so thats what matters. I had to turn the contrast up way high to highlight the beading. Let me know what you think!

I'll probably throw on another coat before it snows, that should last till spring. Anyways let me know what you guys think!

Wax everything lol, windows, trim, you name it haha. I don't have a pic of collinite beading, but it's tighter than this.

I thought autobalm would do better since I see most of you guys use it as LSP, luckily I didn't buy it yet..haha
I am waiting for Ken to bring in the collinite 845

haha beading isn't everything. It's hard to beat collinite when it comes to beading. They're known for great durability, cost efficiency and what not. You only see mostly Bilt Hamber Autobalm being frequently used here because most people that post details here buy from Ken. Ken luckily supplies AB since it's a great product that works and isn't to expensive. But if you look on other detailing forums, there really isn't a wax that everybody uses. Honestly for the average person me included, it's hard to tell the difference in looks between waxes. So Collinite 845 will do just fine for everybody. Plus 845 is dead easy to apply and quicker. With Collinite 845 you can go around and do the entire car and let it sit over night and buff off the next morning. Where as AB you have to apply super thin and need to buff it off at the right time. Otherwise its a pain taking it off.

I have never use paste wax before, that's why I might get collinite 845. I might also consider Duragloss 601 and 105 too.

LOL my two bottles of 845 still smell the same as when I got them and it smells like alright. I'm guessing you've never smelled Autobalm have you?

eFx[A2C] 09-07-2009 11:57 AM

no i have not. 845 just has this really strong smell, like raid.

!Yaminashi 09-07-2009 12:02 PM

Brendan, isnt autobalm good for masking some light scratches as well?

to each his own, but I don't think 845 has a strong smell at all. word of advice, don't use autobalm:)

Yup, autobalm does have some masking capabilities which is nice. It won't mask as much as say Poorboy's Black Hole Glaze, but it does mask some light swirls.

Really? I thought it hid more than the PBs did. Time for another test.

I always use megs machine glaze before ab. Fills the scratches well and adds depth, followed by ab it works well :)

I would have thought that AB covers less than a glaze itself:(
