Best wax: sharing w the group

Like most of you guys I'm sure, I've tried em all.
A wax I had never heard of, came with my car upon delivery from Premieremotorsports.com in Missouri.

Wax is : ' Top of the Line ', Trade Secret.
Ivory Carnuaba Wax, one container has lasted me over a year now.

I have to tell you guys, not all waxes are the same. ( I never thought this )
This shit is BY FAR, the best I have ever used.

Pic attached.
And for anyone w a black ride you know this level of shine doesn't come around every day.

People ask at shows quite a bit, 'hey what do you use man, looks sick' ...
When I say the name, always the same response, they don't know what it is.
Nor did I.

Either way, highly recommend it, and once tried you won't go back.

Thanks Woodz. . Your recommendation was good enough for me. I decided to check their site out and it was informative and I need to buy some ASAP.

From science...super-refining and modern polymers. We start with #1 Grade Yellow Carnauba, then refine it a second time. This changes the wax's pale yellow color to ivory as the last remaining impurities are removed. The result is Ivory Carnauba, a super-pure wax with unsurpassed clarity. We use only Ivory Carnauba as a foundation for all our waxes. To this base of Ivory Carnauba, we add modern crystalline polymers. These super-hard polymers increase the wax's durability by resisting breakdown from acid rain and ultraviolet light. Month after month, your
vehicle will proudly display its Ivory Carnauba shine!

I use Nxt Gen Tech wax. Easy on, easy off and it looks great. It's been great so far. But I'll look into what your talking about.

I agree, waxes are a thing of the past and do not have any durability or hold up to heat well at all. Definitely Zaino for me.

I've been using Mother's Reflections Polish for a few years now on numerous black vehicles and am very happy with the results.

Also have a can of Liquid Glass which is equally as good.


Really don't have time or patience for multi-step applications anymore.

Tried Zaino and looking for 1 step ot 2 step things now. I used Meguires (spelling?) and been happy. I'd love to get it done professionally, but they would probably scratch my car like the dealership that did my warranty work-lol. Thus far I used three dealerships for DC warranty work, and two scrathed my car where it needed a panel repainted. Same with tow trucks two for two scratching it, so I do my own work when possible but I am always looking for the nice wax.

On the wax note, for any of you folks that drive yours often, how often do you wax? I wax only 3 times a year myself, so when I wax it isn't fun for me with road crap needing to get waxed off. Mine is inside my garage, but I drive it 7K miles a year since I work @ home.

It's a trade off usually.
Deepest shine a high quality carnuba wax (like Pinnacle). Easy on, doesn't have to dry can be wiped right off. Downside, doesn't last long. The syntetics have come a long way, almost as good a shine (not quite as deep) but last much longer.

I've used them all. Currently been using the butter wax from Adams polishes: Car Wax, Car Polish, Auto Detail Supplies - Adam's Polishes - Polish & Wax. Goes on easy, looks great so far so good can't really tell you about the durability. Side note, the Adams detail spray is the absolute best I have ever used. NO residue, cleans great smells great.

Personally I enjoy waxing so I couldn't care less how long it lasts. I like to be able to do the whole car on and off in an hour...and go take a ride. Once or twice a month is no problem.

I tried a bunch and have found the Zaino to be what I prefer. Gives that deep down wet look. Knowing that the protection lasts longer than Carruba Wax is just a great bonus!

For those that like the results of the PS21, but would like to spend about 1/2 as much.....do what I do and go to a Harley dealer or Harley dealer web-site and buy some S100. It is the exact same wax, but relabeled for the biker guys who wouldn't pay $30+ for PS21

As for the my personal preference, I use NXT as my base protectent and a coat of S100 on top of it. The NXT provides the longer protection and the carnauba-based S100 adds back some of the depth you lose with a synthetic alone.

Lastly, for a detailer...I have tried about 8-10 brands and the best by far I have ever used is "Wizard".
