Hey guys I know this is an old thread, but didn't really see the point in starting a new one. Anyway, I was wondering if anybody has tried any of the Lanes products, or the Chemical Guys products, for the exterior cleaning and waxing? I have done a lot of research trying to find the best product, especially for waxing, and these products seem to be coming up on a lot of searches. Let me know if ayone has tried them, and if your curious about them, here the links. If you have any other waxes or detailing products you would suggest, let me know.

I've heard a quite a bit about that stuff, I'll give it a try. Do you know if it has any silicone in it?

Yeah it contains silicone, and from what I've been told, you want to stay away from silicone based waxes. I'll continue my search.

Well it's really not that big of deal, but if for some dumb reason you happen to need part of the vehicle repainted, due to accident or whatever, the silicone will actually seep through the paint and penetrate the metal, making it very difficult to repaint, without having the paint peel, or just not stick to the metal. While searching for a wax without silicone, I haven't come across many, so I will likely give in and use a silicone based wax, because I really don't plan on having to repaint at all. The stang will only see nice summer driving anyway, so that should reduce the risk of an accident.
