Nu finish and Eagle one Wet Wax

i did a search on this and i didn't find any

Well i was just wondering what you guys think of these products if youve used them.

I don't feel safe using a buffer (actually i don' have one so thats more of an issue) and its about time my car got a full detail. I found these products to be good ones but if im going to be washing then claying then rinsing again then drying then apllying the nufinish polish, (whew) is it safe to just wet the car down again so i can apply the spray on wax or would the rinsing and wiping of the wax take of most of the polish?

or am i just better of using nu-finish and then waxing using carnauba or something?

and what type of polishes do you guys use? or do you just not use one at all? Every one talks about waxes but not that much about polishes.

I have a black car btw (nighthawk):

not really interested in this stuff but its the only stuff i know of easily available. I think their aim is to get people to just use the polish and leave it without waxing. However i want a mirror glass look that people have and i don't think this is going to acheive that. If only i could find some poorboys or something at crappy tire.

Search the Autopia forums for information on Nu Finish:

I've used it many years ago. I found it hard to buff off, and it didn't really last nearly as long as advertised.

Nu Finish is actually a synthetic wax. It's not a true polish.
Check out the FAQ here:

Autopians like the 1Z products by hand:

Depending on your paint condition, you'll probably have to use a true polish to prep your paint if you want the "mirror glass look".

Here's some additional info, check out their other how-to's:

I used Nu Finish last weekend on my car and I wasn't happy with it. The Polish did gave car a deeper wetter look, than the section waxed by mothers, but in some angles it looks greasy. No matter how I applied it or removed it the grease look was there.
