Meg's gold class when the wheather is warm. NuFinish for the winter.

The meg's shines like a **** but only last a few weeks. Constantly have to wax with that stuff.

I agree with you MBow...it seems as if you work hard using Meguiar's to make your car all shiny and as soon as it rains, it goes back to the way it looked before you waxed it...very frustrating! But I use Meguiar's for the protection qualities, as well as it gives one hell of a shine!

I use the following Mother's wax. Its a three step process. Step one is done twice a year, with step two and three every month. Amazing results and the water just runs right off your car. This is important if you have a black Civic too!

CALIFORNIA GOLD® PRE-WAX CLEANER – PHASE 1 (#07100, 16 oz.)
CALIFORNIA GOLD® SEALER AND GLAZE – PHASE 2 (#08100, 16 oz.)
CALIFORNIA GOLD® NATURAL FORMULA PURE CARNAUBA WAX – PHASE 3 (#05550, 12 oz. paste or #05750, 16 oz. liquid.)

The 3 waxes (scroll to the bottom).

Its kind of funny, if you guys mention all those things you buy at pep boys like meguiars, zymol etc, to shine enusiats and detailers, youll get laughed at.... meguiars does make some good stuff, but you cant buy them in ordinarystores... they have a certain exclusive line..... i used all those and to me they are crap (even before i heard they were), the water would stop beading etc.... So far Ive used 3m hand glaze, and nothing comes close... especially with a buffer on my old car.... you would not believe... comes out as smooth and glossy as THICK glass

I use Zymol, it works the best out of what I've used.

And if you mentioned Honda to a serious car guy, he'd laugh at you too. Granted we may not use Ferrari quality car wax, but we don't drive Ferraris either.

civicdude will become famous soon enough
I am a detailer, and I will admit that I use alot of meguires and mothers products. They make really good chemicals. So what if they are sold to the public. I will say that most of my chemicals are bought in a commercial detailing supply store that most consumers cant buy from. There is no reason for Detailers to laugh at you if they see you use meguires or mothers....The reason being is that alot of shops use mothers, meguires or even gliptone waxes. They are quality and go on easy and come off easy. They just put them in little squeeze bottles and hide the evidence of what they really are. Dont let them fool you.

I agree w/ yah if you do any research on wax im sure you'd find mothers and meguirs on the bottom of that list. The best waxes are left for the true enthusiasts to find out. BTW 3m hand glaze isn't a wax its a polish and you can also get that at pep boys.
