RE: Waxes?

I used the Meguire 3 step program this summer on my Obsidien Black car. The results were good, but it took a lot of elbow grease and time. I found that the water beading only lasted about 2 months, and this is what I really like to see a wax do. I went back to a product that has been around for a long time and I have always gotten good results with, Liquid Glass. This is a synthetic product, and it works exceptionally well. Unlike most waxes that have to be applied in the shade in cool conditions, liquid glass likes it hot. You can apply this stuff to your car in 80 degree weather and its fine. The bottle says let it bake on the car for an hour and wipe it off. For a really lustourous shine you can apply 2 or 3 coats over a 3 week period. Note: when putting this product on do not use too much, more is not better in this case. A fine coat is all you need, and wiping it off is very easy, much easier than traditional waxes. My experience is that you will still have water beading 6 to 8 months later

RE: Waxes?

I like to use Zymol, just dont let this stuff dry or you will have to grind it off. Turtle wax is good for a nice quick wax, it takes me less than an hour to wash/wax the car with turtle wax. Zymol takes a little while, but looks great when done. This subject is just a matter of opinion. Happy Holidays!

In addition to Meguiar's and Zymol, I've also used P21S -- paint prep (polish) followed by their carnauba wax.

P21S is easy to apply / remove and looks great IMO.

RE: Waxes?

Villaluz,

I asked the same question resently on the W163 forum. The overwelming recomendation was Klasse. I was given this website: http://www.autogeek.net/klassekit.html

I was told to use the All-in-one and then the Glaze coat and the a carnuba wax over the top for a glass-like finish.
