Which wax/polish do you use?

Place your vote!

Personally, I've always been a big fan of Meguiars Gold Class and haven't yet tried the much talked about Zaino or Klasse.

Meguiars Gold class is great for an off the shelf product. If I were shopping off shelves I would go for the Mothers. As far as premium products I have been using Klasse for 7 years, I often try different stuff just because I get bored and often forget how good Klasse is! You can always top the Klasse with your Favorite Carnauba to add more depth! I top mine with Meguiars #16 Carnauba (Blows Gold Class away!) or P21S! Heres a good article on Klasse,

PS, Klasse is not a wax, its an Acrylic Sealant

Finish First

I have used a product called Finish First by LiquiTech and have found it to be the easiest and best polish to use.The results are so good that my paint looks like new but is over 13 years old.It can be built up and it bonds to the surface,the more coats the deeper the gloss and greater the protection.

I am familiar with Finish First. I have some myself for testing. I found it to apply and remove very easier with "OK" results. Durability. Beading started to diminish after 3 weeks and completely died at 6 weeks. What I did not like about the product was that if it is not maintained and layered in 1 month intervals it will leave a dry chalky residue on your finish which is hard to remove. I believe this is due to their curing agents which may react too quickly and cure the product prematurely. One application of their Pre-Cleaner will remove this residue though. It also stains black trim. Finish First is a Premium Polish/Sealant. Because it is a synthetic it does apply better than most of the older off the Shelf products but will not compete in Durability or depth with products such as Klasse, Zaino, NXT. Finish First is actually a Relabeled product. It was first known as Liquid Glass and has been around since the 60's. They likely relabeled it to try to boost a new product to compete with the newer Synthetics. What other products have you used in the past?

P.S. before anyone asks, I do not have too much time on my hands! Testing products takes it all up!
