Detailing section would probably have been the best place to post.

Why Dodo juice and why hard wax?

Lots of other better LSP's imho.

Maybe that's just what your detailer prefers then.

LSP = Last step product

I presume the detailer did something like a one stage/two stage machine polish then I assume he would have applied some sort of LSP after that. Did he not elaborate?

I'm not a big fan of waxes myself. Much prefer modern sealants topped with some like Hydro2 Lite.

As griff said waxes are now out of date, and better products than dodo juice at a similar price point. Woukd be good to know what product your detailer finished the car in to seal their work so yiu can just maintain that. Wax gives around 3 to 6 mobths protection. Works better on certain car colours. On my red rs3 i used ag hd wax, provides a nice deep red lustre and good beading. Can also use a wet wax to maintain over othr wash, ag aqua wax is a good value product with low skill level required. For ceramic coatings Iike to use gyeon wet coat, beads instantly. I have used dodo juice tropical mist as a qd/ wet wax, works nice in the summer on waxed cars just max sure you got dry paint.

Good luck, the detailing road is very long. Put in the work at the begginning to make your life easier later. The geyon wet coat takes seconds to apply and you just jet wash it. Instant beading!

CarPro CQuartz UK
Gtechniq EXO v3
Gyeon Q2 Mohs

Those would be my choice. Probably lean towards CQuartz personally.

Dodo Juice SNH (supernatural hybrid). Good stuff - wax / sealant :)

Use Sonax detailer after each wash as a drying aid too.
