I bought some car wash with wax right in it. If you have a coat of wax on it, it will revitalize it. It works well if you rub the whole car with a towel after you let some of the water run off. It is made by KIT, thats all i know. But i am satisfied with results. It works great on my GTP, makes your eyes hurt it is so glossy
Originally posted by the Sandman Hmm, I've applied leather conditioner with my bare hands (no rag or applicator) but never wax. Really good results?
I tried it after reading a tip years ago. It works for me! Great results. Of course - i use a soft dry rag to buff the wax off.. Applying the wax by hand, you will know immediately if there is any grit in the wax or on the paint. Also, you control exactly how much product gets applied to the car by feel instead of by looking. I've also found it to be the best method for keep wax out of emblems etc.
Years ago I bought several cans of the original Blue Coral (bee's wax). I am on my last can. This, for me, has by far been the best wax I have used. I have not been able to find any more of it though. I think they stopped making it.
The way I used it (by the directions) was to apply a thin coat to an area about 3 feet square. Wait till it gets sticky and buff it out.
Does a beautiful job.
Hey Pat, I don't know where to get the original Blue Coral bees wax, But I left a link to another product that works better than anything I've ever tried. I don't sell it or anything but a tech that works in my shop turned me onto it and I couldn't believe how well it worked and it goes on and off easy. Check it out in this forum.

I don't have a Cadillac yet, but I hope this is a helpful contribution:
For the past three years I've been on a quest for the best auto-finish products. Here's my process and my chosen products:
1) Meguiar's clay bar (twice a year)
2) 3M Swirl Remover (once a year, apply with orbital buffer)
3) 3M Imperial Hand Glaze (twice a year)
4) 3M Paste Wax--still experimenting here (as often as possible)
5) 3M Gloss Enhancer (detailing spray, as often as desired)
6) Kit car wash--I like the smell (always wash by hand if possible)
Finish First products are also pretty good, synthetic, and long lasting. I used them for a while, but on a black car I found that I had to work a little harder to keep it looking just perfect.
Just before using the clay bar, I use a mild mixture of Dawn dish soap to strip any excess wax or difficult road film. Only wash about 2 sq. feet of the car at a time, and immediately rinse. Rinse liberally!!! DON'T let that stuff sit on your paint!
Nothing is prettier than a black car when it's clean. Nothing looks worse when it's dirty. It's definitely a love/hate relationship, especially in the winter. It's 13 degrees right now.
