    Looking for an easy way to seal up my paint and found Aqua Seal. Have anyone used it? Is it any good?

    No actual experience with that product but this is just my .02. I've heard of this stuff being used at car wash facilities. The ones where they run it through their car wash machine and have lots of people on staff to do a quick vacuum and dry. I also like to call those places "Scratch Factory's" mainly due to the equipment used to wash the vehicles and their staff using dirty towels to dry.

    If this is the same stuff you're referring to http://store.detailking.com/express-polymer-sealant ...... it states on that site: "Protection will last up to 16 washes. Do not apply to windshield. Pleasant lime scent."

    IMHO I wouldn't waste time using that stuff. There are plenty of other much better sealants out there and easy or easier to apply. That stuff seems more suited for those car wash facilities where people go a few times a month and pay for the "sealant" package so it maintains protection.

    Couple of good products out there. P&S has Bead Maker which works well, Gtechniq has C2v3 which can give you up to 7-8 months protection. Hydrosilex which can also be used as a drying agent. Meguiars D156 Synthetic Xpress Spray wax is also a great product.

    Used it a few times, it’s ok. But I like the chemical guys banana spray wax better. Good luck:thumbsup:

    I don't know what type of Aqua Seal you are referring to, but the one I use is for resealing or replacing the latex gaskets on my drysuits for whitewater kayaking. I use it a lot and wouldn't even consider it for a vehicle unless it's an older beater that you're wanting to seal something, like a leaky 3rd brake light.
