Fukken Wax? anyone?

Seen this on another forum and I am very skeptical of "Waterless" wash and wax systems. I just dont foresee me rubbing on a dirty vehicle without water to rinse it away for the most part.

Supposedly, you just take this stuff and spray it on, wipe it to a haze, then buff it to a shine. It's supposed to remove oxidization and works on any non-porous surface.

European Waterless Wax | Car Detailing Wax | Motorcycle Wax | Fukken Wax Canada



I think that I could use it, but ONLY as a wax after the truck has been hand washed with WATER.

maybe someone could explain to me how a waterless wash system works and I could understand more. But i just dont see how it doesnt scratch paint rubbing non rinsed dirt particles around.

has anyone tried this particular wax?

I don't know anything about it... BUT i bet Chris from Eshine would know the ins and out of it.... I usually buy my waxes from eShine Canada- Car Wax, Car Polish, Microfiber, Polishers, Tire Dressings, Detailing Supplies. It is a local business (20 minutes away from me) and he is a great guy. He does not sell the regular off the counter waxes, he specializes in top performing waxes. If you liked that funny truck in Borat... he bought one of those and is renovating it for a company truck lol. (there are tons of pics of the build up)

Same here. I'll stick to hand washing, clay barring, and waxing the real way.

Do yourself a favor, buy Zaino! You will never want to go back to anything else. This stuff is amazing in person, and it is so simple to use.

Depends on your definition of expensive. I spent $120 on a complete kit with clay and and all the detail products in 2007. It goes on so thin and as long as you wash your pickup right (if you use an automatic car wash, even a touchless it doesn't matter what wax you use as a lot of car washes use acid and will eat the wax, then they spray your pickup with their crappy filler wax, I have a list of local touchless washes that use filtered non acidic water and I get the cheapest washes as I don't need their crappy detergents with zaino) you should only have to touch it up once a year. My supply is three years old, I have Zaino'ed at least a dozen cars, and I still have 2/3's of my stuff left. Pretty cheap IMO. Once you use it or see it used, you WILL throw away all of your other products. I did.

Zaino durability - Minnesota GM Performance Association


^ Check out Randy's DD regal after a MN winter and only a couple of coats of Z-2.

Now I have seen this car in person and it looks better than it did when it was new.

waterless washes do the same thing as a qd essentially. if your caked and muddy then it wont be of any use, if you have light dirt it will lubricate and lift it from the paint while your towel catches it. i have seen reveiws maybe even on this site? wasnt amazing to the point youd need to buy it again but it did work.

I have that wax in the liquid form, not real happy with longevity of it. The Gold Class seems to last much longer. I love the shine that the NXT has, seems to make my Red have a "wetter" look to it. What do you use, the paste or the liquid?

I use the liquid, was never a fan of paste wax. I agree it doesn't last extremely long, but I love it because its a wax that is carried everywhere, it's really really easy to apply/remove, goes on thin, and it looks great. You have to remember too that since it's summer the wax won't last as long. I agree on it looking great on red, it looks amazing.

Dude I wasn't really sold on this product until i saw the name. "Fukken"??!?!?!? That's exactly like "****ING" but mispelled. It's so edgy that I might just go wax my truck with it while i wear my edgy tshirt that says


Hahahah get it? it says im classy but it swears.

I am a big fan of this stuff. Randy tries everything., he goes to SEMA every year, people give him stuff to try, but in 10 years he has never ran across a better polish than Zaino. I have only been using it and helping out with his detail days for three years, but nothing else touches my cars.

Now if you need buffing though, Zaino products with the exception of ZPC has no abrasives. I use Meguiars 105 and 205 depending on the paint condition followed by ZPC, then I start all over with a wash, Clay bar, and ZAIO and Z-2 or Z-5.

After that if you hand wash (using grit guard) your pickup, use only fine microfiber towels when needed, and use the z-6 detail spray, you should only have to touch it up once a year. maybe a little spot buffing cause even micro fibers will leave small scratches in the clear coat.

I even Zaino my windshield. Bugs never stick! LOL

Yeah all i ever use is what you could call "over the counter" cleaning products. Stuff I can easily go to Sutozone or advance to get. Im dont know much about the professional stuff like you mentioned John and would not know to use. Ive never even used a buffer haha.

I basically keep anything Meguiars around and i use nothing BUT microfiber when drying/detailing. Its just hard on my paint when I work at the granite qaurry. Sure it looks good, but not as good as it could.

I really may invest in this i get some for christmas so i dont have to buy it haha

I like Wolfgang Füzion wax. Autoglym High Definition Wax is pretty nice too and can be bought from Wal-Mart.
