there is an aerosal spray called carnuba wax that i used when i used to detail cars and its amazing. talk about quick with amazing results. havent seen it again since i stopped detailing.

only thing is it looks way better if you us a base wax first and then spray that on top afterwards. but i stick with maguires for now.

Once the car was washed and dried nicely I cracked open the bottle and applied the Zymol on her car which was fine. However when I took the Zymol off what a bloody flaky mess, I promptly threw the barely used bottle in the rubbish. I hope it works better for you than it did me.

first thing I di when I got it-Ricardo clay with Optimum No Rinse as a lube followed by Collinite 845 Insulator Wax (Carnuba). Aquapel on all widows. Haven't had the truck that long. For light washes, I just use the Optimum No Rinse in the driveway by hand with a microfibre.

I always stick with Mequiar's products. Most of the time I just use the NXT tech 2.0 stuff which is absolutely amazing. But, since my truck is black, I've done the swirl remover a couple of times before the wax (which is recommended) and then do a coat of wax. Probably the best shine I've ever seen out of my truck. I did buy the Turtle Wax Black Box a while back and I haven't touched it. Looks good, but it's a lot of work. I don't think I'll use it.

Used to use zymol... not impressed. I've used mothers and meguqires before. Mequires is good but only if you plan on taking all sat and not cruising around after you've detailed your truck. Turtle Wax ICE all the way. I use the entire line: Wheel and tire cleaner, Synth polish, spray wax... all with outstanding results. Plus with the time I save I can actually go out and drive my newly detailed truck.

I used to use this stuff called VooDoo Wax for a while, it was good but it was flaky as hell. Then a buddy showed me the Liquid Ice stuff and I've been hooked ever since. It's great cuz I can apply it to the whole truck and then buff it off w/o having to worry about it setting in.

About the only thing I won't use of the liquid ice brand is the "liquid clay bar". That just sounds counter intuitive to me.

Zaino's.
I used to use Meguiar's for years. They're great products, and readily available.
But for a "slicker-than-sh*t" deep shine and ease-of-use, I'm a devout Zaino convert.
