I think their site says it has 53 ingredients?

hope I'm not braking any rules but

"1) Just exactly what is WET PAINT Automotive Polishing Glaze?

Actually, it may be easier to explain the reverse. First of all, Wet Paint is NOT a wax because it contains no waxes. Neither is it solely a polish; it is capable of performing far too many miracles to fit neatly into that category. And finally, it bares little resemblance to expensive paint sealants, as you’ll see in the following paragraph. Before we zero in on a precise definition of Wet Paint, however, let’s take a brief look at other car care products in general.

Of the three product classifications just mentioned, waxes do a great job of ‘protecting’ a vehicle’s finish, but have limited abilities when it comes to revitalizing neglected paint. Polishes are great at removing minor stains and blemishes, and are much more capable of rejuvenating dull paint than waxes; but they can be overly abrasive in the long haul, and leave very little behind in the way of long-term protection. And then there are paint sealants, which offer a great shine and long-lasting protection but are totally incapable of cleaning or polishing. A car’s finish must be in pristine condition before they can even be applied. It helps, too, to carry a platinum credit card with you when considering this type of product.

Wet Paint–on the other hand–cleans, shines and protects all in one step, thus combining the best attributes of waxes, polishes and paint sealants without any of the drawbacks." Source: WetPaintGlaze.com

I've been using Wet Paint for some time. It beats all the other waxes. Then again, Wet Paint is not a wax, but more a sealer. It is easy to apply (terry towel) and lasts much longer than wax. It can be applied to a slightly dusty car without scratching. $25 worth of product that includes a pump up spray applicator will last probably 100 or more applications. On my Cars, that see harsh treatment, the applications last more than a year. You can also apply this to the glass, mirrors, etc. Basically you wash your car, dry it, spray on Wet Paint, then pretty much wipe it off. Tough elbow grease is not necessary nor do you need a polisher. The shine will be mirror quality. To keep the mirror quality, use a Callifornia duster or similar.

my previous accord was 08 WDP, and it was hard to get a good shine from waxing on a white car that was noticeable. i have CBP now, and used collinite recently, and the minute i put it on i knew i was gonna be happy. the end result made the car look wet.. now, if this stuff is anything like collinite, i might give it a try. after i run out of collinite lol

Wet Paint Glaze

Did mine a few days ago before the daily rain. But this stuff is still fantastic. Your car is gonna love you for it...The treatment keeps it really sharp. Wet Paint is the best and real easy to work with..

Other than the wet look they are nothing alike. Collinite is more of a hybrid, it contains carnauba but has the durability of a long term sealant. No cleaners just a long lasting (and excellent) product to use after the wash, dry, compound, polish regimen.

Wet Paint cleans, polishes, and protects all in one shot. Durability is good but isn't comparable to any of the Collinite waxes. You only need wash the car if it's muddy/really dirty. It is ideal for folks that want their cars to look like they've spent all day on it but in reality it only took a couple of hours or less. A combo pack will do an Accord sized sedan 12-15 times. That's paint, exterior glass, and wheels.

Yes sir that was me in 2005 that wrote the now sticky "I may have found the hidden jewel" about Wet Paint. You are more than welcome. I can't begin to guess how many have used it from that 77 page sticky. I know a few in the UK ordered cases of it. I've bought it by the case since that first combo pack I purchased in 2004.

RTexasF, you posted 6 years ago in the mega hidden jewel thread that you don't wax anymore after using Wet Paint. Forgive me for not going through all the subsequent pages, but do you still not wax after using Wet Paint?

How about you other Wet Paint users - do you still wax?

I meant to order Ultima Paint Guard Plus after reading glen's holy grail thread but didn't get around to it. Now I find out about Wet Paint and am not sure what to get.

No, I don't use wax at all. I also have Ultima Paint Guard Plus along with hundreds of other products.

Again, two entirely different things here. UPGP is a pure sealant that you apply and walk away, no buffing at all. It works wonderfully providing the surface beneath it is as close to perfect as you can get it. That means wash, clay, machine compound (if needed) and machine polish. Then the surface must be cleaned with a paint cleaner to promote adhesion of the UPGP. All this is necessary if you want to do it right. Having shiny marring, spider webbing, and swirls is rather pointless.

WP is explained two posts above so I won't bother. It contains some fillers in addition so it hides surface marring (not if it's severe). So......one is for perfectionists that have the time, skill, patience, & equipment while the other is for the guy that wants it to look great with minimum fuss requiring only a couple of terry towels.

Your call on which way you want to go. Both are excellent products but one requires a great deal of surface preparation to maximize both the look and durability. That same preparation would be advantageous to both products but is a necessity for one.
