can anyone recommend a good wax?

I did a search on this but only found posts on Waxoyl

Looking for a good wax for my 97 Beluga Black D-90...I just bought some of the Black Magic Wet Shine liquid wax ...no good
It said it is safe for clear coats but it reacted strangely and was very tough to get off..luckily tested on a small area. Had to go back, use a clay bar and a wax cleaner to get the crap off.

Any suggestions...?

thanks in advance

You rang?


I use Mother's. Glaze and wax. Just waxing is not going to get you anything. You need to strip the old wax off, then glaze then wax. Most of the clear coat on our trucks is gone or mil thin. So you have to build up the finish.

I've tried the Boyd Coddington goat milk stuff, that doesn't work either.

You strip the way by using a heavy measure of dish soap in your water when washing. Clay bar is a good idea after that and then Ziano. (only can be purchased online and is the only thing us corvette guys will use). As far as the defender, its lucky to get a bath.

Thanks everyone good suggestions I especially like the thread on the waxoyl clay system
Might have to give that a try.

I called the Black Magic people and they think I applied too much liquid wax...they said a capful should do the entire truck?? hard to believe but now I am afraid to touch the stuff.

I concur with the clay bar and Waxoyl sealer. Quite the difference in appearance and feel of the paint.

This is a regular topic of discussion on the Boxster board - www.ppbb.com - more detail than you'll ever want to know - but the zaino/zymol proponents seem to be in the majority over anything else.
