    I'd just use the Natty's and forget about the turtle wax personally. The Nattys is pretty good stuff considering its price.

    seal then wax is the answer your looking for

    although i`ve never used turtle products before but i`ve found 2 coats of jetseal will see you through the winter , you can add a wax ontop but not really needed

    Personally don't rate Turtle Wax stuff on the whole, only stuff I have used of theirs and found it good is the interior foam shampoo stuff. Does the job well.

    Be interested to hear how you get on.

    Have you used a paint cleaner or compound after washing?.. if not then why buy the gloss sealant?... the turtle wax gloss guard was aimed at newer cars between 1-2 yrs old to maintain the gloss finnish as apposed to waxing the car.

    Personally i wouldnt bother but for better results and better water beading its best to apply after youve done at least 2-3 coats of waxing. If you want a glossier finnish after waxing you would be better looking at dodo juice red mist or meguiars last touch.

    I gotta be honest and say Zymol Autowash is the only TW product id use and is a decent shampoo.
    Heavenly Paintwork is simply Heaven Itself.
