Nufinish's version of the best damm protection for you car's paint. In other words it's a wax along with some brilliance of shine from a polish standpoint.

One sniff and you'll kill a lot of brain cells :D! Smells like paint thinner. As you can tell I'm a smelling type of guy. Push away the toxic smell and you got one of the toughest protection for your car's paint. By far the best from what I've used. I added on a coat of this onto our family Nissan Quest. Didn't clay it down or anything, just a regular wash. Came back to wash it a month later, keep in mind that it was never washed for a month, and it was still somewhat slick. Now all of this was occuring under 100+F temps, dust, and a ton of leaves all over it. I'm sure that's quite a task to work with when your a wax.

If you want MAX protection, and just a tad bit of shine, then this is the stuff. If only Nufinish made it smell like a Zymol then it'd be the perfect wax out there in the market :D.

Liquid wax for automotive paint.

Have used it for many years and on many cars. Outstanding at keeping a good paint job in great shape seemingly forever. Not great on old painted plastic bumpers.

Easy to use and lasts and lasts. Shine is very good but maybe not car show quality. I prefer durability to ultra shine.

Car Polish

I tried this on my car. The result was a whitening of the paint, in sweeps and circles that reflect my polishing "technique".

Less damage occurred where the paint was less weathered, i.e. at the bottoms of the doors.

Polymer car polish

Test subject 1990 classic red, bumpers fairly faded from years in the sun, but otherwise in quite good condition.

Very easy to use, as the instructions state, wipe it on (evenly of course) and wipe it off. Unlike some other cheap waxes it comes off very easily. However, I did note that it turned my rags quite red, indicating that it wasn't the easiest product on the paint that I have used. The paint came up with a reasonably good shine, especially for the effort involved.

On the faded plastic parts of the car, it appeared to go on easily, and bring the colour up, but once the polish had dried and was rubbed off, it actually left the bumpers looking worse - it seemed to have filled the minor cracks with white residue that did not look good. A later coat of Meguiars Deep Crystal polish brought them back, and that is the only product that I have successfully used for doing so.

Good, VERY easy to use, but not recommended for faded bumpers.

Silicon type liquid wax (also comes in paste form, which I've never tried)

I've used this stuff for years. Wipe it on, wipe it off, no buffing. Lasts longer than anything I've ever tried, and is easy to use. Highly recommended.
