Here is the blurb from the site:

now its ok :sorry:
Wow! Got to say I love the case. Probably would be a pain in the a$$ to open but it's still cool looking.
im gonna have to hit up Paul and see if he can give me a free sample. :giggle:
Learn to polish and you won't need an $1800 wax.
Layeth the smacketh down Ken!!!!!!
LOL! i think most of us here know this already...
No mercy Ken ... ouch!!!
I'm jumping on board with Ken on this one, 1800 is a little much.
IMHO CG is trying too hard.
$1800 is way to much for a wax from CG...maybe if it was a SV product it would be worth it
What if it turns out to be better than a SV product?
I don't see how tightening the screws would create a vacuum inside the case. If anything it'd create a slight pressure. Also without an o-ring or some form of seal, the wax is not going to be sealed in that case.
Regardless, it's all slightly ridiculous.
No wax is worth that kind of money. I have some Vintage here that I absolutely love. I also have some less expensive waxes that look so close on a well prepared car that you wouldn't be able to tell. Five years ago, the higher offerings from Zymol and Swisswax were indeed head and shoulders above anything else. The playing field has been levelled to a point now that other than being able to afford it, there is no reason to spend that kind of money. And no, you can't have my Vintage! LOL
Looks like you would be paying more for the case than the wax . LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!
^^^ yea the case looks like it is worth more then the wax.. LOL
Block of Al that big is not very cheap haha...machining is not cheap as well....be interested to see how it holds up against wax's in the price range.
But like Ken said, if you can polish and refine the paint then all the wax does is help it out a bit, kind of like garnish on a dish...just gives it that something extra...you cant make a burger from Burger King look like nice steak burger from a nice restaurant just by putting some garnish on the side.
hmmmm...wonder who is gonna purchase it...
