I found this stuff by accident on the web several years ago and it is wonderful. Pretty easy to put on and man does it last. Check their website out. Very good products.

Awesome stuff.

One bottle last forever, goes on super thin, incredibly durable, great shine, great beading.

It has a good reputation for being a long lasting and durable wax.

I noticed it thickens quite abit if sitting on a shelf.

I added (3) Marbles to my Collinite 845.
Makes mixing (before use) a lot easier.

Sit the 845 bottle in a pan of warm water or in the sun. Then shake like crazy.

This is the only wax I use for daily drivers. Collinite's longest lasting wax is #476, but it is a paste. 845 being liquid is easier to apply. May last a bit less, but easily outlasts most other waxes.

Like someone else mentioned, warm/heat it up prior and shake the p*ss out of it. You want it the consistency of milk, no thicker. If there is any globbing/accumulation under the lid or around the neck, just push it back into the bottle and shake it back in.
It goes a long ways and there is no need, imo, to swirl/rub it around. I just go in straight lines back and forth on a panel at a time. Let dry to a light haze and wipe it off with microfiber towels.
It was suggested in one those posts above to use a alcohol/water wipe/wash prior to waxing which I think is a great idea, although I have never tried it before.
I have used it on my cars, trucks, boats and snowmobiles for a lot of years and swear by the stuff. cheers

I still think we need a sticky for BITOG D&W consensus products. I volunteer to write it.

Yes, 845 is a workhorse; it may not be the best in any one area but it's good enough in every area that it's worth having in the arsenal for anyone who does their own detailing.
