Ah okay I see. I've only heard of it being used on trim that's why I thought it was exclusive to the trim

I just did a full Zanio treatment and double coat. Need to capture some beading.

It amazes me how a spray wax is still holding up and all I've done is use high pressure washer on it twice.

Almost approaching the two month mark for pns on my rims. I was surprised because since I applied it I have not washed the car, sits outside 24/7, driven 300+miles a week on stock pads, and last week the winds plus the fire really did work on the dirt level for the car. All I used was a high pressure washer and they easily were 95% clean. I didn't take before or after pics because I honestly didn't expect the pns to be holding up after all that. Here are some beading pics which look like day one to me

When I get my new F80 in July I'm gonna go the sealant route I think. This Zymol glasur looked great but with the heat the longevity is never to long on Carnauba waxes. Think I will be laying some Sonax Polymer net Shield on it.

Hey my wax friend !
Need to say that are amazing beading pics and even on your wheels !
Must be a very good spray product the Sonax polymer shield ,and works even perfect on your wheels !
I'm planning next....
Step 1>Hand wash with Wolfgang - Autobathe .
Step 2>Claybar-meguiars .
Step 3>Ultimate polish-meguiars .
Step 4>Sonax polymer shield . 2 layers with 24 hours between them.
What do you think about these 4 steps ?
And oh yes ! Heard and saw incredible stuff from Angelpolish ?
And after seeing the result of Angelpolish i'm doubtfull about my planned 4 steps ? >http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=997214

Your steps are perfect it's exactly what I would do! If I'm not mistaken angel polish has coatings not sealants. This sonax product is a sealant so a coating will definitely out do it.
