^^ Best of Show is a lovely wax and gives great beading.  Fairly shortlived lifespan though about 4-5 weeks really.  Same for Onyx.  Crystal Rock good with about 3 months lifespan.  Mine’s wearing a mix atm of Onyx and Best of Show (using up old remains of pots) but it’s all but gone so that’s mostly Lotospeed beading atm until I can get time to do winter detail.  Looking at trying Swissvax Shield topped of with one of the other Swissvax waxes.

I just used a quick coat on the roof as got Polish Angel Master Sealant on already and wanted to try this over the top to see how it works. They say its more than possible to get a 3 month lifespan for Best of Show. Quite an expensive job building uo a clelction of good products!

If you halve whatever Swissvax state as lifespan then you are close to the reality.

Yeah it can be an expensive job pulling together a good stock of detailing stuff. Swissvax stuff is pricy but worth it imo.

Here's some Best of Show beading.  http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=157465.msg2533973#msg2533973
