    P21S One of the best waxes

    This is recomended by a whole lot of people i know who definatly know what they are talking about. It is a wax that really does provide a simply stunning shine, on any color. Best of all, it won't set you back $1400 like some other waxes (zymol). There is another wax that some people say top it on dark colors, Pinnacle Souveran http://www.properautocare.com/pin-312.html , but the performace/price ratio of p21s simply can't be beat. So where can you pick some of this stuff up?

    www.properautocare.com carries it. http://www.properautocare.com/p21spastewax.html

    For the person who wants a real Shine check out P21S's Gloss-enhancing Paintwork Cleanser (GEPC) http://www.properautocare.com/p2paincleanl.html You use it prior to waxing to fill in some of those swirls, clean the paint and give it more of a deeper wetter look. P21S is easy to use and doesn't stain trim.

    But wait, it get's better. If you don't want to order online, or you don't want to wait for the package to arive. You can most likely find P21S locally. Not many people realize that, but there is a good reason. The P21S you find locally isn't P21S at all. The exact same company markets the exact same wax and cleaner under a different name. S100. S100 is the exact same as P21S, only it is a tad cheaper. Best of all it can be found locally. The reason for the different name is that P21S is marketed for cars, S100 is marketed for motorcycles. So if you want to get your hands on this stuff call up the parts dept at your local Harley dealership, 9 times out of 10 they will carry it. Also be sure and pick up the s100 equilivant of the GEPC. The name excapes me right now, but it's call something along the lines of ____ Cleaning something or other. It's most likely the only other s100 product the dealership will carry.

    If anyone wants to see this stuff, here is a good shot done by a professional i know:



    Hopefully next weekend (weather permiting) i'm going to be able to do a full exterior job on the caddie. I will be using this product, in combination with another. I can post some pics and a sort of play by play if people want.

    I'm going to go down and get some more soon. Will be interesting seeing a college kid in a civic pulling up to a Harley shop, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    You can do a lot with a little bit of knowledge and products. You can probably save a lot before you have to call Maaco

    How do you polish so close to plastic and chrome trim with a buffer and not mess up the chrome and plastic? and vice versa with the chrome?

    That stuff is phenomenial. That car looks brand new. And on that tahoe or suburban, the finish looked like a mirror. Once i get my caddy, im going up to the lake and doing a full detail in our heated shop (assuming theres no stuff in there already)

    I noticed that it only comes in 6.4 oz tubs, how long does that last? Do you have to have multiple ones to do a car

    Usually you don't have to use much at all. Rather than using many 6.4 oz tube to wax a car, you should be able to get many waxes out of the 6.4 oz. With waxes it's a little different, but with a lot of synthetic products, like klasse, i try and get one coat per 1/3 oz or so. It depends on the product and type of car, but in general most waxes/sealents are actually better applied lightly. Not only do you use less product, but it often makes it much easier to remove, and the look is usually as good or better than if you applied it heavily.
