It really depends on a lot of variables what will work best. In a dewy or humid environment like at Pebble Beach, I use a sealant (Radiant) and not a wax as waxes can cause condensation in such an environment. If you are running it across the block in an auction in a dry area like Scottsdale's Barrett Jackson, I use pure carnuba with no silicon or additives.

Megs, etc. are not badproducts but they just don't hold up or work as well as commercial/professionalgrade products (that actual cost the same or less). You have to remember,everyone uses the same substances to formulate their products, what isdifferent is the purity/concentration & price.....typical retail names aremuch more expensive per ounce than commercial lines.

The absolute best ($ for $) IMHOis "Satin Cream" (for dark colors), it is made by BAF & distributedthrough Pro Car Care products. It is very easy to work with either by hand,orbital or buffer. It has the same acrylic hardener as the high dollar paintsealants but it has 30% German imported carnauba....no, your arm will not falloff putting it on or taking it off & it has a very mild polish in it aswell. Even parking the vehicle outside, the MFG gives a 6 months warrantybefore another application is required. I use this personally on my toys &daily drivers (which include a 1997 black Cougar sport) and all I can tell youare not even bugs like to stick to the paint- most of the time when water isapplied they just float off- bird poop is just as easy. No smeary look either-very clean clear deep look. On my toys, I give them a fresh coat about every 2years (literally, even for a show), my daily drivers (I have one that sitsoutside), I apply to the entire vehicle every 6 months, and do the hood, roofand trunk every 3 months (probably overkill, but I know it is well protectedfrom the elements including industrial fallout).


For light colored cars I use Profection PaintSealant (P-73-Q)…it is the same product as “Satin Crème” but without thecarnauba….it brings up a much higher shine which on light colored cars looksbetter IMHO (although it has less depth of shine that carnauba gives) and ithas a much higher level of polish in it.….I also use this on all my chrome,stainless, etc…it not only shines it up like new but it is sealed from theelements as well……it works very nice on the poly carbonate headlamp lenses aswell- cleaning up the lighter haze that happens over time.
BAF Industries 1910 S. Yale Street Santa Ana, CA 92704 800-437-9893

An excellent alternate product is 3M Perfect It Show Car Liquid Wax- a siliconewax/polish but excellent results as well, just maybe about 90% of the qualityof the satin cream.

Back when I was doing the car show thing, I used Zaino products. PITA, multi step process, but the results were worth it...sometimes. Now that the car is no longer a show queen, it gets Griot's Spray On Car Wash. Can't use hose n bucket anymore...no side windows and got open louvers in the hood

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

First ... What I currently use is several different products depending on whst im waxing.
Lower near the road area get a Polymer sealant lnown and tested by detailers to outlast and give protevtion even after 6-9 wsdhes with Purple power. That is Turyle Wsx seal and shine. In fact it is stronger than products costing 10x as much. For weekly monthly service I just switched from megs ultimate liquid wax to using Griots best of show. I also use same nsme detsil zprsy
And topped it with chemical guys GlassWorkz glaze. The result was winning Top 3 in Class Ford Modern 1974 - Present at County Car Show.

But for this winter she will be getting a Ceramic coating. Probably DPS Shield.

Adam's Butter Wax

over the years I've tried all kinds of waxes with some great results, BUT, I've found Adam's Butter Wax and couldn't be happier. It's so easy to go on and just as easy to wipe off. I'm sold
