Great wax product for your Civic

Hey guys, I just went out and bought some wax for my car the other day. I found this wax polish from "Mothers" and it, hands down, kicks some serious @$$. It's the liquid type, and this wax is way more forgiving on your trim if you get a little sloppy.
After i was done the wax made the car have that "WET" look, and it also made the car a shade darker than it was which looked awesome! You guys have to get this stuff!!!

"MOTHER'S POLLISH"....It comes in a red bottle....

i know what u mean, i've been using mother's products for about 7 months, they work great, theirs a show polish too and let me tell you what, it makes the car look like a mirror and feel like glass, smooth as a baby's behind. [IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG]

I got mine from Kregan(Spelling). It's like 6 bucks or something. I use EAGLE 1 WAX AND POLLISH and then i use MOTHER'S POLLISH to top it off....yea, mine feels smooth as hell too. I did that sliding thing on the hood of my car...just like in "Super Troopers" ...man.... I slid off my car soooo fast. I love that $HIT!!!

I have tried both Mother's and Meguiar's 3 step and i think meguiars is better. Only because i havent found a cleaner wax and polish for Mothers.

Meguires liquid wax works great, as does Mothers. I like to mix it up sometimes to see if I can really see a difference. As for polish I don't think you really need it. The job of a polish is to bring a shine to the surface of the car that has been dulled by sun or something, but at the same time it removes some of the wax undercoat. I really like the instant shine products, especially from Meguires. When you bring your car home and there is a little bit of dust on it spray this stuff and the car looks like it was just waxed. I felt that the Mothers quick shine left a little bit of film. As for a wax applicator- I found that you can buy a pack of new sponges in the rectangle shape for like nothing compared to those round name brand applicators. Just wet the sponges a little and use the wax. It's also easier at corners cause you have that rectangular edge, not the circular one.

Whatever happened to good old fashioned Turtle Wax? [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG] I run my car through the machine at the gas station once every couple weeks and put a coat of turtle wax on it right after; seems to work just fine.

heheh zaino might be your way to go, "but why fix somethin' that ain't broke!"

my current wax (meguiars 3 step) works awesome for me, produces a lasting shine... I'm gonna keep experimenting with different waxes for each bottle I get... I think next time I might try Mothers... or i might step up to Meguiars Gold Class... beats me

I have Gold CLass aswell. I found that it stained my trim! That's why I quit Meguires and went with Mothers. It didn't leave as good a finish but it didn't leave white junk on my trim.

Mothers products are a few $$ more than most cleaning products but they are worth it. You can get it at most stores that sell car cleaning products.

I use Meguire's Cleaner Wax followed by a coat of the Gold Class...it came out so well, I can't sit on my car because it's so slippery! The annoying part about using paste is the residue gets in every crack, and you have that 'dust' all around the car. But I think it covers better than the liquid version.

And there's something sooo pleasing about buffing the car and watching it turn from a pasty mess to a shining mirror finish! [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif[/IMG]
