Which Wax

I am waxing my car this weekend... It has NEVER been waxed to my knoowledge... I would like you guys to suggest me some products that I can get at a local store around the area that isn't too terribly expensive.

I have a few scratches here and there but not too many. Clear coat is not too great. My truck is white and pewter. Thanks in advance...

By the way, yes I used the search function and I still wanted to do this topic. :p

That gives me another idea for waxing. I mean, you can wax enamel paint ...right?

If meg's wax tastes as good as Mr Zog's sexwax (surfboard wax, don't try it on your hootus!) smell's, then you most definitley are onto something.

Yowza--a $3,500 correction.

I had to stop reading the article, however. I haven't kept up with these new MF pads (old school foam and liquid polish for me). Learning about the latest and greatest only will lead me to a mass sell off and purchasing experience, something I don't really want to do. Again. (Some folks got great deals on lots of Zaino back in the day.)

Flounder: Is zaino only available on line? I saw a picture of a car once. That was impressive. I like the foam pad too.

As far as I know, only online. Zaino's look isn't the result of its formula, but instead the pre-sealant preparation which is--you guessed it--a solid polishing with cutting and finishing polishes. Zaino's claim to fame, at least with me, was its longevity. And then one day I found Jeff's Werkstatt, then Werkstatt, and now Werkstat (different name, same great product). I liken them to young Zaino: durable as heck, affordable, simple to apply, and simple product line. After I bought in, I sold all my Zaino and never looked back.

Thanks for the information, sounds like good advice. I'm going to stick with what works for me.

I just applied a couple of coats of Meguiars NXT 2.0 to the Explorer. I'm really happy with the results. Works great on guitars too :)

The Explorer sparkles just as much as the guitar but i was off a little on the angle. I'm really impressed with the quality of the paint job. I took one shot and then the clouds stole the sun. :)

Looks Good, You can see the reflections of the mirror that it's shiny. I agree love that Meguiar's.

The NXT 2.0 left a nice wet look, and a very slick finish.
