Klasse AIO + 2x Klasse HGSG + 2x P21s Carnauba Wax






The entire thing from wash took about 45 hours since the Klasse HGSG needed time to cure. Been working on it since I got off work today, extremely exhausted right now, gotta go. Klasse is very good IMO.

Wow that paint look wet. how long did that take you, and did you use a buffer or was it all done by hand?

No buffer for me, don't have access to a power outlet in my garage, everything was done by hand. It took me 2 hours of nonstop buffing to completely remove the Klasse HGSG even though it sat for more than 24 hours, my arms literally felt like they were falling off. The results were worth it, but I don't know if I want to do it again.

Zaino looks just as good if not better and is SO easy to remove and sets in like less than 30 min.

That's what extension cords are for.

if u're not a zainolot and wanna use klasse sg, apply a nice thin amount. if u can see it, u put too much, thats what i say. then use a damp cloth to remove and a dry one to take off residue. it works with little to no effort.

klasse is very finicky since its an acrylic selant whereas zaino, like many other POLYMER sealants come off just as quick as it too to apply. klasse does not need 24 but rather just one hour. i tried this with a sharpie marker experiment and it indeed did LAYER with our apart. not as quick as zaino but if u think about it, u dont need to let klasse sit for an hour. just wipe on, buff off. the most klasse should be left on the paint is the time it take to apply to the whole car. then, like i said, just follow with a damp mf, and a dry one to remove residue.


when u start detailing u;re car more often and crave different looks, u will soon realize there a wide variety of selants, polymers, wax that all give different looks. along with glazes. when u do find u;reself ready just visit www.detailcity.com or www.autopia.org and read a bit.

only benefit to these long term selanats like zaino or klasse is their durabilty. although zaino does have an unmatched look that is very hard to compare.

BUT ZAINO IS NOT THE END ALL PRODUCT. if anything it needs more depth for thsoe darker colors.
