Thumbs up Whats your favorite wax guys!

Lets see it, your favorite wax when you really want your car to shine!
I'll start it off, I think any one of Meguiars products are the best.

After using up the Turtle Wax that I had, I decided to give Meguiar's a try. I'm very pleased with their Gold Class paste. So pleased, in fact, that I'll probably just get the same thing again when this tub runs out. It's easier to work with, and seems to give better luster as well.

The cleaner wax from Meguiars is a good one wax that cleans, shines and leaves the car silky smooth. I use it from time to time on every car we have. Right now I'm using the liquid carnuba wax on my stang. Seems to leave a real hard solid shine. With all the products i always use the liquid. Seems easier to take off and polish.

I used the XXX Hardcore Carnuba from Chemical Guys on my Race Red GT, and think it came out pretty awesome...

Thank you! That was achieved on a two month old car, using Meguiar's clay, then a nice thin coat of wax.

She's going to need another coat in a couple weeks, and this time I'll clay, then coat with Chemical Guy's Deep Reflections XP (hand applied), then a coat of the XXX Hardcore Carnuba wax.

I also like the synthetics like Meguiars NXT tech wax and believe it or not, Nu car finish in the orange bottle actually works pretty darn good. That stuff has been around a long time and you can find it anywhere.

I've always been pretty pleased with the look of Nu-Finish as well and it seems to go on and come off easily

Top of the Line Carnauba wax is the bomb! I have used the Turtle Wax Black kit with good results. But that Top of the Line Carnauba wax and three coats of it before fall last year....has my black Mustang looking good after a long winter's drive with several Gold Class hand washings in between. It's not only the wax that does the job, it's how you apply the wax....and the right wax as well as hand washing your Mustang with PH balanced shampoo. You've got to get the most out of your paint. Waxing is the very last step in a process. Any wax won't do any good at all unless you do the process and care and maintain your paint or improve it.
All of your hard work......effort and time as well as the purchase price for the wax you so choose is wasted if you ever take your car to a commercial car wash. Just my opinion.


Black means black. If there is any chrome involved, it's not black anymore. Just sayin'
