    Hello Rhys57,

    I have a Star Silver Astra H and, following some advice from the AOC members, I bought some Collinite 476s and gave that a try. It was fairly easy to apply and fairly easy to take off (let it dry to a haze - don't apply it too thickly).

    My Astra came up a treat with no holograms or anything. The wax gave the paint a smooth soft feel. I'd recomend the Collinite - I got mine from Cleanyourcar website.

    Regards.
    John P.

    for silver sealants are better as it helps the flake pop out. Zaino z2pro is good, or jetseal 109. collinite 915 is better than 476 as its gives better looks and still lasts ages. bomb proof protection is jetseal then 915.

    Do you use wax first then put these on?? or just use the above after a wash?

    nah sealants first then wax, so 1 or 2 coats of sealant then wax as much as you want. and top up as desired

    sealant

    Aslo how often do you have to use the sealant ive just ordred the bompproof stuff you said. £50 from clean your car.com
