Re: What kind of wax do you use?

I don't have a Buffer so I just use NXT wax from Meguairs and Hand wax it.

Within a month or so I will be purchasing a Porter Cable.

Re: What kind of wax do you use?

I use Meguairs Gold Class. It is by far the best wax you can buy at the auto parts store in my opinion...

Re: What kind of wax do you use?

I clay bar once a year, and use Zymol. You do have to remove the old wax for the new to look good. Have used the various Meguiares, including mirror, and I like Zymol better.

Re: What kind of wax do you use?

At the moment on mine, none since its matte.

However, before I got the vinyl applied I used loads of different products and the best was Zymol Vintage not exactly budget friendly though.

Zaino sealants are also right up there amount my favourites and they are the only thing that came close to Vintage.

Here goes...

Zymol Vintage (clay, HD Cleanse, 2x coats of Vintage, Field Glaze just applied):



Zaino Sealants (Clay, Z5-PRO x3, Z-CS x2, Z-8 just reapplied - this is 6 months after initial application):



Both are absolutely awesome and a joy to use. I would recommend applying wax by hand, the polisher doesn't speed it up much. I'd actually say its easier by hand to be honest.

However, bear in mind one very important thing. The wax/sealant will make no difference if you don't spend time on paint prep - ie. polishing the paintwork to remove visible marks, most commonly swirls. If these aren't removed you'll not get the best finish possible.
