Formula 113 wax and Absorber (artifical chamois)

[11/16/2001] Reviewed by: Jeff Lauffer -

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

The Absorber is an artificial chamois that comes in a tube sold at Pep Boys, Walmart, etc for about $8-$12. The come in various colors and work better than any natural chamois that I’ve ever tried for much less money. Fantastic you gotta try one. Works great on the windows/mirrors also.

Formula 113 car wax is super! It’s a liquid paste that goes on easy and just the slightest amount (1-2 oz, emphasis on the 1) will do your entire Miata. You can order it off the web at $15 for 12 ounces. They have various detailing kits or just the wax in various sizes. They hype it as a “microbrewed” wax, made in small batches in Yonkers, NY, but wow does it work! What a shine! My black 94 never looked so good (even with acid rain pits). You can apply this stuff in direct sunlight ( if you want or have to) and doesn’t leave any chalky residue down in the hood, door, or trunk gaps. It makes the black rubber trim blacker and no streaks on the body. This stuff also lasts a long time on the car. I get nothing but compliments on the car and lots of questions on “what did you use on your Miata”? Several of the guys at work use it on their Beemers, Vettes, Harleys, and their everyday cars/! trucks.

Product reviews---- I haven’t seen any reference to 2 great products that I’ve used the past couple of years on my black 94 Miata…..the Absorber (artificial chamois) and Formula 113 car wax. Both are fantastic and the best I’ve used so far. Using the Absorber after a car wash, and having previously waxed it with Formula 113, the black ‘94 looks like it was freshly waxed….what a combination! I highly recommend both of these products to those who want their Miata to look its absolute best. Jeff
