    Well I picked up some Pinnacle Sig Series II wax recently and I couldn't wait to try it. It was time to give my black metallic Ram a little polish and wax job so that was my test subject.

    I started of course with a 2BM wash with Dawn and Mother's California wash. Then after a quick claying with Griot's clay I went to Duragloss 501 on a white 5.5" LC pad with my PC. This was my first time using this stuff as well and WOW it is great. After buffing off the DG501 it left a slick smooth protection that, to me, rivaled BFWD's slickness.

    After an hour or so of curing the 501 I applied two coats of the SSII spaced about an hour apart. Of course being a WOWO it's so easy to use. It's got a nice pineapple smell that made using it pleasant. I split the big truck up into three sections and applied to each section and buffed off before moving on. I noticed a nice difference compared the 501 alone. The SSII enhanced the metallics with my LED light and of course in direct sunlight just like I expected it to from other reviews.

    Overall I really like this wax and will be my go to on the Ram for the time being. I like my Souveran or Fuzion more for my TA since it's a non-metallic black. The SSII is a great value considering the 25-30 applications you should be able to get out of an 8 oz tub.

    Not great pics since I was inside a warehouse but they'll do.

    Some swirls are still there, the 501 is definitely more of a chemical cleaner AIO than a true polish, I'm gonna mix this with a DG polish or maybe D151 next time.

    Awesome review and nice work!!

    I've been using Duragloss 901 car wash and Duragloss Aquawax but I just started using Duragloss finish products and I'm amazed at their performance especially for the price.

    Thanks for posting your results!!

    How does Sig II compare to Max wax? Seems they would be similar.
