Never have to wax your truck again??

What do you guys think about this stuff? Heck, even the Navy uses it for the AEGIS Radar systems apparently.

never heard of it, but if it works then it would be a good deal to me.

Looks just like every other phoney piece of junk gimmick I have ever seen, I wouldn't let that touch my truck ever!!!!!! They have spelling errors and cheesy pictures with a not that great looking gangsta girl wearing bandana top!!! They say in the instructions that you apply something to get the pait porus (which means its eating away/breaking down the existing protection) then say let the paint air dry because if you dried it would smoothe out the roughness it just put on.........

IMO which I have obviously not held back on its a hoax, rip off and will probably damage your truck and or ruin the integrity of the paint........ Just my $.02, ok mabye more like $.99.......

Screw that stuff! Just use best wax made, Collinite's Heavy Duty Paste Fleet Wax (No. 885). It will last a who season if you keep up with it. It's for planes and ships we use it on all the restorations and hotrods. Read up....

Its funny that they use old vehicles that were known to have had paint problems from the factory (clear coat delamination), and then use new vehicles to show what great shine it has after applying that stuff, when they already have a great shine to begin with. Not only that, but alot of the stuff on their site seems to be repeated many times, just worded different.

Get Dri Wash 'n Guard. I use that (when I use anything) and it was great. I just got done doing my wife's Escape with it. Good stuff. Dave01978 (I think that's his handle) sells it.

His site was http://www.waterlesscarwashproducts.com if it still is (from the sticker on my bottle of it).

yes that is still my site and yes I am still around, The stuff John has is the old stuff, the new improved version is actually a lot better, and goes further as well.

Here is a link to the 16oz bottle, $19.95 i have gotten 14 ranger / sport trac done with the bottle
There is also a 32oz size now available as well.

I'll stick with my meguiar's gold class wax. Ive not waxed my truck in about 4 or 5 months, and its still repels water.
