Autoglym HD Wax Beading Shots

Here's some beading shots from my wash today. I really like Autoglym's HD Wax - first wash in 3 weeks, one coat of wax. Car has stayed outside for the most part, garaged for a week when I was away. It's still glossy, and beading really well! Sorry I didn't get any shots of vertical surfaces, forgot and dried them before I went to grab the camera!

$37 + taxes. It's not expensive... Swissvax is expensive. Or Raceglaze wax. HD Wax is good and cheap and easy to use.

Uh, applied as normal? Wash car, rinse car, dry car, apply wax in thin coat, wait 1 hour, take wax off?

Just like any other car wax, no special technique needed. One of the easier products that I have used.

are you allowed to leave it on for an hour? I thought when you wax you leave it on only for a couple of minutes and wipe it off or did you just wax the whole car and wipe it off all together?

That depends on the wax you are using, some can be left to cure longer before removal.

Let me start by saying NICE AVATAR!!!! All waxes have different drying times. Some recommend applying and removing one or two panels at a time. Some, like AG Hi Def and Rubbish Boys RBOE, you can leave on for awhile. I find the HD comes off easier the longer you leave it.

Pretty durable... I think in a wax-off competition it was one of the few remaining waxes after 6 months of outside exposure? AB is a sealant, can't really compare the two. AB will probably be more durable, but it doesn't look as good as HD Wax.

The nice thing about HD Wax is how easy it is to use compared to AB, which is finicky and can be a pain in the butt.

HD is supposed to be good for 6 months. Given that it has polymers which are good for shine as well as durability, I'd say its probably true. Given that you wash every couple days, I'd ad a second coat and you should be fine.

How does this one compare to the Next Gen Wax 2.0? I have a sapphire black car and wondering which wax would bring out the shine the best?

Sealants will bring out the shine more whereas waxes will give more depth and wetness. Is your next gen the paste wax or the liquid?
