Same ol' can of worms. Use what you feel comfortable at the end of the day. I've found Mothers FX™ Engineered SynWax goes on & off easy (quick too), keeps most bugs from sticking to the nose & is reasonably priced. Use it on my V & wife's SRX. I'm very happy with the shine without spending hours polishing. But I'm just one opinion...

Zaino's hands down. It is incredibly easy to use. Lasts longer and looks better than anything else I have ever tried. I have never had people ask what kind of wax before, but since using Zaino's products I have had a number of people ask when they see the car. It may cost just a little more and you can only get it direct from them, but it is the winner in my book. :worship:

I used the Adams system - wash, clay bar with detailing spray, polish and wax - worked and looks great. I am very happy with the products.

I use Griot's Machine Polish 3 w. orbital buffer and then follow up with Mothers pure carnuba wax or the Griots Show wax - starting with clay bar of course. I am going to try the new Griots sealer stuff on my SUV before the winter hits - that one sees all the bad weather including mucho snow during ski season, it is supposed to last for 1 year. We'll see.

brillo pad followed by johnson's floor wax.
You sir are a bad, bad man. I just tried this on a inconspicuous spot in the middle of the hood and the results were less than ideal. Did I ever tell you about my clear bra install? :banghead:

too funny. I was thinking more along the lines of clay bar that has been dropped in gravel, then orbital waxer w/100 grit followed by liberal application of brake fluid. this will show off the true metal of your car.

I find that you just can't beat a old fashion spit shine. I can sell some if anyone needs any. I like Zaino the best!

I first use 3M Swirl Remover followed by 3M Hand Glaze and then finish off with Zaino. This gives you an incredible finish on black and great durability.
