The proof and glory of NXT wax

Here is my 12 year old paint just washed with NXT soap clayed with Meguiars clay bar...and used my favorite NXT wax...the truth is in the pics take a 12 year old stock paint and try it yourself






take into fact my camera isnt the best for close up and there is no sun it is an overcast day...but still looks DAMN good

Just wait until somebody comes in touting Zymol or whatever it is. Not that I doubt them, but I do know that Meguiar's only costs 15 bucks for a bottle.

Don't wax it for 8 months and tell me if it looks this good after you wash it:

Zymol is damn good, but I like the meguiars more, zymol has a better shine, but takes a lot more buffing labor.

Right on! Zaino rocks! My truck got hailed and rained on a few days ago. I parked it in the garage. The next morning there wasn't a water spot at all and the shine was still all there. These pics don't really do the justice for it either. I'm going to wash it up soon and take some pics after a couple coats of Z-5 and Z-2.

I agree, the xymol is good, but it takes a hell of alot of buffing to get that stuff off. Its Meguires NXT for me.



NXT BABY!!

Alright let me rephrase the question of how it was suppose to sound "Have YOU (Zach) tried that new Dupont Wax" I think it came out a couple weeks ago. I have not tried it on my truck but I heard it was as good as the NXT. The last time I waxed my truck was a couple months ago with the NXT and it still looks good.

NO i have not and will not. waste of money. there was a thread back when it acully came out over a month ago some one acully explained Teflon and that Teflon wax is a hox because there was something about your just wiping the teflon off because to make teflon acully bond to something it takes extreme heat, it would melt the paint off to make it bond to the truck.

I won't argue that NXT looks good when its first applied. I haven't put Zaino on my truck in 9 months and it still looks great. You go 9 months without re-applying NXT and see how your paint looks... deal?

Heres my truck on Mem. day weekend.. I last Zaino'd it in October:

now zach...can my oxford white shine like that? i only use nxt wax


QUESTION ON WAX...

ok, u put it on with a soft cloth, foam pad thing....let it sit for 15 minutes (NXT says it needs to "set")...

if you take it off with a machine buffer...something even simple like the $20 special at wal-mart...willl it enhance the shine better than just hand buffing?

btw...what is the definition of "buffing"
