Car Wax question
« on: August 18, 2010, 01:18:20 PM »
Hello Guys,

Since I got my car back after a new paintjob I haven't washed my car yet.
This because of some reasons. But..I would like to know what the best wax is to use on my car.
I have used Turle Wax in the past, but i don't like it because it doesn't give me (before the paintjob) the showroom shine i wanted. And it's hard to rub it out without the stripes on the car.

Is there something to get my super smooth and shiney like a mirror?  :cool:

Dont wax it for about 3 months after a new paint job!  Let that paint cure.  After that polish and wax.  I like 3M products.

Can you tell me what brand it is?
Those showroom cars have very glossy shine on them.
Is it easy to rub out?

Well, the car has been painted last year. But maybe needs a repaint because it got painted in the wrong colour  :stupid:

The more blank coating you got on your car the more that shine feeling.
What the new cars got that's the trick :wink:

Go to carclean.nl and register to the carclean.nl forum.
This is a very good shop with even better service and advice.
I myself am an enthusiast detailer of cars, i have polished plenty car's bij now.

You can wax a car right after it's painted, but only with a carnauba based wax not with a sealant.
After 6-8 weeks you kan polish the car and/or use a sealant.

My tip for you, order at carclean.nl a jar of Poorboys natty's paste wax.
it is cheap and it is a pure carnauba wax without fillers or sealant.

Questions? just ask.
Oh and learn about the two bucket washing method, this keeps your car in showroom condition.
Estimated horsepower sucks, I WANT DYNO SHEETS!!!
I was born this way, what's your excuse?
