Another quickie:

Any benefit to 2 or 3 coats of FMJ , each a couple of days apart ?

Or is it sufficient to do one coat of FMJ , then top it after first wash with Natty's Blue (my favorite wax for Jet Black)

Thanks again !
If you wanted to do multiple coats of FMJ, I think it'd be primarily to ensure you have even coverage of the sealant over your entire vehicle. It's not a sealant I found much benefit in increased gloss, slickness, durability from multiple applications. You'd be better off doing 2 or 3 coats of Natty's Blue than FMJ.

Also, if you're topping it with Natty's Blue, there's not much benefit of using HGAS on top. If you were to only use FMJ, then HGAS is a great product to use after maintenance washes to help bring back the surface slickness and extend the durability.

FMJ is so easy to use, even if you only get 3 months of protection out of it, it's cake to apply another coat. Let us know what you think after you get a chance to use it.
