Re: Advice on best wax

Here it is on my charger after I stripped off Gtechniq Exo V2. Then I stripped this off after a couple months and put on 22PLE VX1 Pro topped with Kamikaze Overcoat.

Re: Advice on best wax

Out here in Arizona, where the temperatures are very high in the Summer, along with the high UV light, the Polymer based sealers and polishes are the way to go over waxes of any type. They just last far longer. And I'm finding they give a deeper shine. I do use a "Wash As-U-Dry" product after every wash. It seems to help make the shine last longer.

I've been using Nu Finish with good results. I'm sure there are similar products, and some of them may in fact be better. But Nu Finish is perhaps the best known one out there. Although they advertise it as, "The once a year car polish", I would never let it go that long. I put those claims right up there with the 25,000 mile oil changes. I'll let other people prove them right with their vehicles.

I like to refer to Nu Finish as ,"the scam that really works". It was one of the very few Saturday morning infomercial products of the 70's that really does back up it's claims. A product that not only works as, or even better than advertised, but has also withstood the test of time.

Most all of these products are here today and gone tomorrow. In fact, I think there are people who avoided Nu Finish early on because it was pushed in infomercial advertising. I know I had my doubts because of that. Most products that you see advertised like the "Miracle Mop", are automatically placed into the "crap category" of stuff to not to bother wasting your money on. But Nu Finish has performed really well over the years. A lot of people tried it, and found nothing better, so they stuck with it. I know I will. Another thing is they have kept it fairly priced over the decades. Some of these exotic waxes are ridiculously over priced for what they are......... And most all of them don't last that long either. Especially out here in the desert. A really good example is the whole car dealer, "polyglycoat" scam of the 80's.

Thing about it also is they dont advertise it much anymore but it sells and has a following in its boring orange bottle, no flashing lights or fancy package or sales pitches other than 70s infomercials lol it stands on its own for what it is. The biggest point i notice with nufinish is how long it lasts best way to describe it is the multitude of other stuff i tried over the years might last a couple months where nufinish would last several months. Certainly not a year but noticably longer than the exotic crap. That and how easy it wipes off not like scraping plaster off like some of this stuff.

That is what I really like as well. When you get older, it's nice to not have to bust your a$$ polishing your vehicle. Nu Finish comes off about the easiest of anything I've tried. When I did my truck with it, I forgot to remove a small spot on the bottom of the rear quarter panel. I noticed it a couple of days later when the light hit it just right. (It's white and hard to see where you've been). It wiped right off.

Does Nufinish leave white on the black trim?

Yes, but I found it wipes off much easier than wax if you should happen to get a bit of it on the black trim. I've had some waxes over the years, that I had to use Kerosene to get it off. Not so with Nu Finish.

It will do that like most all waxes but a soft toothbrush on trim and creveses cleans it up good. A toothbrush and rag was always my final step on a wax.

Re: Advice on best wax

Another very subjective and opinionated topic. So I will just show you a very small portion of my detailing arsenal. I have and always will stand behind these 3 products. You will not be disappointed in there results. I cannot vouch for Nufinish as I have never used it and most certainly never will. But I do not want to get into any sort of post debate on the subject. So I will leave you with use whatever you feel comfortable with as long as your happy with the results.

Collinite is great stuff. I use it on top of Duragloss 105 & 601.
