Thanks! IIRC I just clayed the car, polished with SRP and used Collinite 915 Marque d'Elegance. I will get the dual action polisher out sometime this summer to correct some swirls although it didn't come out badly last time even if I say so :)

Haha, thank you!

The QD is an easy one , the OPs product, Armour all shield liquid wax diluted 50/100ml and topped up to the 500ml mark with water. Easy enough to use, just a spray, spread & wipe product like any other but slightly smtreaky so requires a little buffing. This can be made easier to buff by mixing it with another generic QD like Finale by Auto Finesse.

Quartz is an easier enough wax to use although doesn't apply in the same fashion as waxes in the same 100 price tag. Being a more premium wax, I assumed it would be a full car application & buff, I was wrong... took ages to remove & left me with mixed feelings with it. Second coat, I tried two panels then removed in the same order, much easier to buff off and the durability/beading is the best I have come across. It was still going strong after 5 months on my car before I had my scurderia  stripes fitted, ending the durability test but I imagine 7-8 months must be easily achievable.
