As mentioned, I may like this but not you, so I can only recommend what I use.
AIO is DG501, Sealant is DG105


I tried searching on the comparison of the look of DG105 with TrackClaw but not much info found so far. Did anyone tried applying TrackClaw on top of DG105?

Thanks, yes read this blog earlier that lead me to try applying a Silicone Sealant and follow by DG105 on the previous round.

This round maybe I can try applying MG Ultimate Quick Wax before adding another layer of DG105, see if it give better shine and deeper look.

Not sure of MG UQW, but it should be like Aquawax and should be over DG105, not the other way around.
Maybe bro. krismas can comment on this.... smile_tongue.gif

Which brand of sealant without cleaning function?

I has old Polyglaze Glide on Glaze, and would like to apply one layer on it.
After remove scratch with Soff99 Luster, then polish with [T-Cut and F21] mix, the panel already looks like mirror.
After apply Polyglaze GoG, a little better shining before.

Now, looking for non-abrasice sealant before top up with TW Ultra Gloss Liq WAX.

Some ppl claim that Polyglaze GoG contain polymers, sound like sealant ... i dun know. Can't find much info from net.
Some ppl claim that Glade won;t last but the bottle claim that it can last 6 months. confuse.....
To be safe better top up with sealant smile.gif

Don't believe too much that is on the labels. It may be true but not for our weather.
DG105 is a good sealant, but if you don't have one, you can use the wax that you have. Just be more hard working and give your ride a wax job more often..... smile_thumbup.gif

You mean DG105 don't have cleaning agent?

Testing TW Ultra Gloss on side right side mirror, after buff notice that the surface like not oily.
Left side mirror with PG Sealant, surface smooth with oily feel. Hhmm, shouldn't be wax suppose to be more oily feel than sealant? smile_shock.gif

Bro from what i have tried, if you want a deep wet look you should layer accordingly:

DG601 PBA
DG105
DG 951
DG105
DG951
DG105

This will give a very deep wet look, but you shouldn't go for more than 3 layers as it can mute crispness in the reflection.

Where as If you just layer TC it gives a really crisp reflective look, but can look a little hard and sterile.

If you want an in between, you can try 2 layers of DG 105 then finish off with one layer of TC. This might give enough warmth and depth and still give good reflections. Make sure you clean the paint and polish properly before doing it or else the dirt on the paint won't let the colour and shine come through.

The dirt that I'm referring to is the black road grime you see on white cars which can only be removed by paint cleaner or polishing. All our cars have it, its just that you can't see it because it not white in colour.

Try it out and let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the details. If I understand your blog correctly, the DG951 is apply without buff off, follow up DG105 and buff off after haze for 1 hour. Do you find it hard to buff off because of the mixture and long hazing time?

I will try with MG UQW instead to see the result, have it collecting dust for awhile.
