Klasse AIO vs Poorboys EX or EX-P

Hi all,

I'm considering one of these 3 sealants, but I dunno what to pick... I'm going for durability with the sealant, as I'll be topping with Natty's Blue...


Any opinions welcome,


Thanks.

Klasse AIO is not what you want, you want Klasse High GLoss Sealant Glaze. Klasse HGSG will outlast Poorboy's easily from using all of them. I would highly suggest using Opti-Seal. It's easy on/easy off, and durability is fantastic.

+1 on both accounts.

If you're going for durability, Klasse AIO isn't your answer. It's a great prep stage that will clean your paint and lay down nice base for a sealant to build upon, but you don't want to rely on just the Klasse AIO for your sole durable protection.

Both of the Poorboy's Sealants, while look great, aren't specifically known for outstanding durability. Either of the products zaxjax recommended would outlast the EX/EX-P. Poorboy's would be easier to apply and remove than Klasse HGSG by a long shot, Opti-Seal is probably your best bet though.

Here's a professional review on Opti-Seal if you want to take a look.

The thing is, I can't get optiseal locally, and shipping it from the US to Europe would a) take long and b) if not, be expensive...

So I'm left with those two options...

Sorry for going off topic, but I just spent an hour reading through Todd's details and reviews on the site. Very interesting stuff. Never noticed them on there before - nice touch as always George! Hope you and Todd will be adding even more to that section.

Thanks, we just kicked off this section last week. We teamed up with Todd to provide some professional insight on our site. We have a lot more content and things planned, so we're pretty excited. Todd is one of the best out there when it comes to high end detailing.

Appreciate the feedback, sorry to get OT too.
