I put on the Klasse AIO and then the Klasse sealant back in Feb., only been waxing every 2nd or 3rd wash. It still holding that shine. I plan to use AIO and the sealant again in the Fall.

From what I understand the AIO is used in conjunction with the sealant for best results. Not getting a good shine?

If you use AIO in between you will remove previous layers of sealant since AIO is a cleaner. I think he means he uses the SG every few washes. I tend to use a spray wax after washes and sealant/wax every few weeks (usually 4-6 weeks). I found Duragloss Aquawax to be excellent. Mothers FX is good too. Both are wipe-on-wioe-off so it takes about 10-15 minutes at most.

No AIO and the sealant are suppose to last for quite awhile. I just use P21S wax every couple of washes.

i only apply sealant twice a year. after a coat of sealant and in between, i use p21s wax to shine it up. you can also use s100 wax which is the same stuff but cheaper.
