Anything that lays down a layer of protection such as SRP will possibly affect the bond. Some type of pre wax cleanser fluid is the best prep, however Swissvax Cleanser Fluid is a bit of a pig to buff off so I prefer to use Gtechniq Panel Wipe instead.  Much more user friendly and I think it’s much better vfm too! Or Lime Prime Lite is good too.  I’d not bother with SV version. 

Pot size is a dilemma due to price and fact you’ve never used it before.  The bigger pot would be by far preferable in terms of ease of getting an applicator in as the small 50ml pot is small and the wax can be hard to access especially as the wax level lowers. But it’s a lot to pay out if it turns out you don’t like the wax!  Still I’d probably buy the remains of a 200ml pot off you if you wanted to offload it!  😁

Brilliant, thanks for that. Will go for the 200ml BOS ,try it out first on top of the BH finis, and then see how it goes before a full detail at a later stage.

Got the Swissvax BOS today and must admit that I like the smell, better than the petrol/paraffin odour of BH waxes. It is similar in terms of softness to the BH products. Not able to easily see it being applied unfortunately but it goes on easy and buffs off very easy when compared to BH waxes. Would be better if the pot was less tall and more wider for better applicator access (BH got this part right). Put some on a front wing after a quick wipe with DoDo QD and it looks ok. Looking forward to applying it after a thorough wash and prep sometime to get the best out of it (have ordered some BH cleanser fluid too).

      So I have some fingernail marks/light scratches under 2 of my door handles and the worst of it is under the boot badge, I have been looking around and the sandpaper method but can anyone offer some tips or to do’s and what not to do’s?
      1. Wet vs dry sanding?
      2. What grade paper would be optimal?
      3. If wet is best would a wash n wax shampoo with water suffice?
      4. Specific polishes for aftermath?
      I was thinking of reaching out to an experienced detailed for them to do it but I am not sure what the price may be and due to them not looking overly concerning I think it might be an easy fix for myself... I currently do not have a DA Machine so all work would be by hand.
      As always tips are appreciated!

      So it’s been a week since my passenger doors where sprayed (Lapiz) and I have been reading that some people say not to wash the car for up to 90 days 🤯🤢
      I’m thinking if I give it another week before I start carefully washing but I’m looking for a shampoo which is gentle and does not contain any wax/polish substance
      Can anyone recommend any good items?

      Thinking of investing in a Polish Buffer Machine for my R but don't have much experience in detailing!
      Anyone got any good brand/model recommendations?
