Re: Best wax for white cars?

ok so if the white pad with the UC didnt get out some of the scratches, should I go to the orange pad with UC and THEN try m105 with the white pad again if that doesnt work?

Re: Best wax for white cars?

If you don't have any of the LC HT pads and only have the older flat pads (yellow, orange, white, black, blue from strongest to weakest cut) I would suggest sticking with either the M105 or UC and move up the scale in pad aggression. Every vehicle is a little different, even within the same brand/model. If the UC on the white pad isn't getting the results you want, then try an orange pad to see if that works for you. If not, move up to the yellow pad and see how that works. I wouldn't apply M105 after buffing with UC, as that is going the wrong direction in terms of the cutting ability of the products. Generally speaking, each step should see you using a lighter cutting product and a less aggressive pad combo.

Re: Best wax for white cars?

IMO...the hydro-tec pads are leaps and bounds better than the regular LC pads.....they keep the product on the surface instead of saoking it in like the older ones. Invest in the pads and you will be really suprised. Will proper washing they last a long time.

Re: Best wax for white cars?

I agree Scott and the 3/4" thick HTs are even better than the thicker ones. But since he was talking about a white pad, I figured he might already have the orange and/or yellow in hand.

Re: Best wax for white cars?

For a great wax I'd highly recommend theChemical Guys XXX Hard Core Paste Wax which is 25% off through 10/31. If you are looking for a really durable product that looks amazing I'd recommend theBlackfire Wet Diamond with Polycharger. If you'd like additional recommendation please let me know I'd be happy to help! We offer 10% off (code 10offJG and there is no sales tax since it would be from NY to FL.

Re: Best wax for white cars?

For light colored paint I'd use a sealant rather than a wax, seems to give a nicer finish unless you want to spend a lot on wax - in that cast Vintage gets my vote.

For the finest sealant, check out Zaino Z2-PRO. Little less, Meg's sealant #21 is also very good and a coat of Meg's #7 show car glaze under that will give a very wet/deep look.
