I agree about Chemical Guys. I use Pete's 53. Goes on easy, it's very soft for a paste wax, and comes off easy. You can apply it to the entire truck and then go around and take it off. I also have the XXX wax they sell. It's less expensive , but dry harder than Pete's and you can only do 1/2 the truck before taking it off. One question to ask regarding wax is, what percent of the tub is actually carnuba. They probably all use pure carnuba, but it is cut with oils and things to allow it to be spread. The actual % of wax is a good indicator of quality. Pete's 53 is just that 53% and hard core XXX is around 47%. Do a search, I'll bet Maguiars isn't near that high. I used to use Meg's, but this Pete's blows it out of the water.
