Advice on best wax

Here is a short list of my beauty products...

Polish: Menzeruna 2500,3500 and Power lock. All their products finish very well and are super easy to work with my DA.

Wax: Wolfgang Fuzion estate wax (top coat). Little pricey @ $60 for 3oz, but it's worth every penny. Best part is that it does NOT stain black trim whatsoever and takes little to no effort to remove.

Also been thinking about trying some Ammo products.

I have found that Rain-X gets the white wax residue off moldings.

Wax is dead to me. Ceramics last 5x longer and you can't beat the.depth of gloss

Re: Advice on best wax

As far as products I am a big fan of Blackfire Wet Diamonds stuff.
Remember it all starts though, regardless of what products you use with a proper wash and then clay bar of the entire vehicle. You'll never get the shine the paint has potential for if you don't clay it first.

Jeep is currently coated with optimum optigloss or glosscoat as some call it. I will be removing it and adding the adams ceramics coating this spring. I also use the gtechniq c5 wheel armour in my wheels and calipers.

Stupid question, but how do you remove the optimum glosscoat? Does clay barring it remove it or are you using some chemical? Sorry I'm new to sealants.

Re: Advice on best wax

So does ceramics coatings not only protect the paint but provide a high gloss also???
