Default Pinnacle Souveran Sizzling Shine Kit Review

Thanks to Pinnacle Wax for the great car detailing and shine kit they delivered after I won the contest! I unpacked the box to see the products and was pleased by the size and selection of the products.

We decided to use Kitty Paws XK8 as the test subject as the paint is new and would benefit from the protection offered by the products provided. Started out with the Bodywork Shampoo. A mere capful in a big car wash bucket made a ton of suds that lasted the whole wash. We used a soft bristle brush on the top which had gotten really dirty at the bodyshop. A big soft sponge was used on the rest of the car.

After drying it an application of Souveran Paste wax was applied. This stuff went on so smooth over the new paint. I love the smell of this wax by the way! It buffed up to a great shine with little effort.

Since the paint was new and the car was clean, I didn't get to try out the Paintwork Cleansing Lotion. Maybe next time I detail my S-Type, I'll start with that.

After a break for lunch out came the Crystal Mist Detail Spray. This is a final finish that enhances the look and depth of the wax and brings out a remarkable shine. You spray it on and use the microfiber side of the supplied towels to spread it evenly over the panel, then flip the towels to the fluffy side and buff to the final shine.

We were plagued by clouds again today so no way to show the excellent finish these products achieved, but here are a few parting shots so you get the general idea...

I'm glad you received the kit and had great success with it . The reflections look great and I'm glad you liked the wax. It's amazing how easy it is to apply and take off. The Souveran wax is all I use myself and love it.

The car looks GREAT and I love that color. If you get a chance to get some sun shots that would awesome. Even though we haven't had much sun lately .

If you do the S-Type, I would like to see how that turns out too

Thanks for the great review Tommy

My pleasure! The kit came with a generous amount of product so I can see getting several uses out of it on both cars.

Tommy,

Very nice!! I love those Pinnacle products and use them all. I will say that you would actually benefit from using the Paint Cleansing Lotion, especially as you did not clay the car. PCL actually works best on new cars with perfect paint. There are many contaminants that you cannot see and that just washing will not remove. Claying and using a cleaner gives the very best surface for applying a wax.

Congrats on a great gift!!
