First time using this stuff. Comes in a charcoal lighter fluid can! I thought this must mean it is heavy in petroleum distillates. Once I mashed the "push the dot" top my suspicions were confirmed. Very thick stuff. Much thicker than Old No. 7 Polish or NuFinish. I disregarded the instructions and applied it with a soft cloth all over the entire car then let try to a haze. I then took an old bath towel and cotton fiber towels and buffed it off. It went on very easy and came off very easy. It seemed to remove embedded contaminants pretty well. The finish was very slick. Much more so than Old No. 7. Since I finished up after nightfall it's hard to really tell about the shine but it seemed to have done a good job. We shall see about durability.
