Wax and polish products

What is the best wax and polish to use on the 88's with original paint?

Wouldn't mind hearing peoples opinions on this too.

Although with the seemingly endless number of brands out there, we may get a lot of differing opinions.

Re: Wax and polish products

I know Adam's is a big name, but I am, and have always been, a Meguiars man. It's easy to buy at most any store and they do have fantastic stuff. I have so many of their products, I have stuff that's never been opened. LOL.
Now, that being said. If your the type of person that parks outside and hates waxing, leaving it to once or maybe twice a year, I recommend NuFinish. It doesn't have the shine as maybe Meguiars, but it just lasts and lasts. It does impress with durability. A bottle of NuFinish is the one non Meguiars product I have in my car care toybox.

Re: Wax and polish products

Lots of opinions on products. I enjoy using Meg's.

I'd suggest a complete detailing process-the end result will be worth the effort.

Post pics when done.

Re: Wax and polish products

Adams has good products and there are a few I use, but Meguiars is the way to go just because of its availability and cost. I use their professional line which is available at most auto parts stores and have not had one complaint from any of my customers. Pair them with the right pads and a good polisher of your choice and you cant go wrong. There is better product out there if you are willing to pay for it, but for the person who wants good results without breaking the bank, Meguiars is the way to go.........IMO

Collinite 845 is really a good wax. It has the versatility and durability of a sealant.
