used dozens of different waxes that claim to be the best, or leave behind
the wettest shine and so on and so forth. Let me tell you, until you have
CelesteDettaglio, you haven’t used the best. The first time I got the
privilege to use this wax was on a Porsche GT3RS. The owner contacted me and
requested the strongest level of protection for his track car. Naturally I
recommended a wash, clay, 2-phase paint sealant, and a 3-layer topping of my
Chemical Guys Premium Paste Wax. Having never used
Celeste I was slightly nervous of what the overall outcome would be, but
knowing Chemical Guys only delivered the finest of products, I knew the
results would be immaculate as usual. After all, what can beat the
Jet-seal and paste wax combination?
process was pretty straightforward so I will spare you the details up to the
protective topping. Once the vehicle was degreased, washed, and clayed, I
got out the
Jet-seal. Applying 5 small dots to a red detailing pad, I applied a thin
layer of the sealant to each panel. After the entire vehicle was covered, I
let the protective coating sit for approximately 15 minutes. After the
Jet-Seal had hazed, I removed the product and let the vehicle sit for an
additional 20 minutes. I repeated this process one more time to ensure a
sealant had been properly applied, I went to the fridge and brought out the
Celeste Dettaglio. Upon opening the canister, my senses went wild. The smell
was so pure, so elegant, so…heavenly (as per Marc no doubt). The texture was
smooth and consistent, it just begged to be used on a vehicle worth it’s
calling such as the Porsche GT3RS.
Celeste in a thin uniform layer around the vehicle. After letting the
wax haze for roughly 20 minutes, I removed it and then repeated this process
another two times. After finally removing the third layer of wax, I brought
Hybrid V7 to remove any streaking and mild product left behind. I
finished up with some other very minor steps (interior vacuuming,
tires…etc). I proceeded to pull the vehicle out of the garage, and for the
first time I was able to truly appreciate the majesty of
entire transformation from start to stop was quite impressive. The vehicle
originally looked good; after all the car was brand new. With that said, it
was nowhere near this immaculate. The paint truly popped; each panel gushed
with a shine so wet, so deep, it was hard believe that the vehicle was
indeed dry. I pulled out a glass of DI water and poured it on the hood.
After watching it trail right off the panel, not a droplet was left behind.
Now that is a symbol of true beauty and protection. It doesn’t get much
better than that, especially for $172.00 a jar. I’ve attached some pictures
of the job to help show that it truly was a magnificent finish.
Thank You Chemical Guys!
