    Cool Wax options

    I'm pretty particular with how may cars look and over the years I've tried many waxes and polishes.

    Recently I tried Mothers California Gold Syn wax and found it to be easy to apply and remove with extremely low dust and has a nice smell too.

    I also love Willys Garage Show ready quik detailer and their Super Gloss car wash too

    For the windows Stoner Invisible Glass is the only thing I'll use and for the leather Lexol which I also find works when detailing the tires and it doesn't "sling off " on to the body

    What does everyone else use ?

    I like the HD wax from Auto Gylm. It seems to last longer than the previous mothers wax I used and really brought out the true color of my paint.

    I have used meguiars gold class wax and Pinnacle Souvernan wax. gold glass is nice since its over the counter but ive noticed it does last that long. Pinnacle Sovernan wax on the other hand showed a lot of warmth and depth of the paint. So thats my pick. Also depends on how much you want to spend.

    Invisible glass is great stuff itll also tint safe.

    Ok the Mothers Syn wax second coat was applied yesterday and it doesn't have the "staying power" I've come to expect from more higher end waxes. Not surprising though I guess since I paid less than 7 dollars for it. Oh well

    I guess you get what you pay for

    The Mothers Syn wax lasts a few weeks at best. That is why I just decided to go with spray waxes like the Optimum. Lasts a few weeks and you just spray it on. Heck of a lot easier than paste and liquid wax.

    used it a few times on my own car and it lasted a few months. @ $40 a container in a cool box, it was worth it.

    Smells good too. Just remember to claybar the car before applying wax.
