Best wax: sharing w the group
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.

Woody, have you tried "Liquid Glass"? Its by far the best I have used. Is yours available in any car parts stores or on-line? Hell, I'll give it a shot.:)

Richie-SRT10 July 9th, 2007 11:12 PM

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!

Go to Top of the Line Auto Detailing Supplies
Very informative site and only way to get it.
You'll love it man.

I personally love the P21 pure carnuba wax. Thanks for the lead though, I am going to give this a try.

Disturbed July 12th, 2007 08:09 AM

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.

Canuck_2k July 12th, 2007 05:12 PM

I personally use Zanio.. but since you swear by it.. imma have to try that out next.

dans69ss July 12th, 2007 06:15 PM

P21 for me too! Will give it a shot.

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.

BAD68GTO August 1st, 2007 06:14 PM

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.

ViperJon August 1st, 2007 07:06 PM

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.

Richie-SRT10 August 1st, 2007 08:24 PM

Zaino wax is like Mr Zaino, a real pain in the ass to work with:D

Zan186 August 1st, 2007 09:00 PM

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!

bigmike32172 August 1st, 2007 09:03 PM

I have a multi step wax that kicks ass, the only downfall is you have to apply it every day:rofl:

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:D

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".

4x4 Viper August 22nd, 2007 03:56 PM

I use Nxt Gen Tech wax too, and agree it is easy on, easy off and it looks great.

Racejaw April 2nd, 2020 10:37 PM

I use Collinite SUPER DOUBLECOAT
Last Step Paste Wax

It's a company that made marine wax back in 1936, what's harder on surfaces than salt water?
They also make automotive wax too. I was tipped off about this company by a professional detailing company...he said no many people know about it except people in the detailing business.

So, I have been using it on all my cars for years and it looks great / holds up to time and elements.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed just impressed!

henrywilson May 6th, 2020 03:17 AM

I think Liquid glass is much better, I've covered my car with that and as far as I know it last longer than wax

wiseman007 May 28th, 2020 12:21 PM

I've heard of this one, and only good opinions.
