My girlfriend and I picked some up and I haven't used it myself, but we used it on her car and I'm impressed. I've never seen her car look as good as it did after we used this on it. Her tail lights on her 95 teg looked better then new after a coat of this, and the car just shinned.

(just don't coat the whole car at one time. She coated the whole car and then I had to help her buff the whole thing.)

Hmmmm. Wonder if streaks came from oxidized paint. The no white on the plastic kind of sells me on the idea of this.

I like the no residue on black also. It's hard to switch away from NXT though. I might buy some and try it on the old lady's mini van.

i used it the day i posted this and had no problems with streaks, and my truck look as good as new, it didnt make the swirls in the paint go away, it says that it is a syn polish, it dosent say wax anywhere on it at all, so i dont know if there is a big diffrence between was and polish

I dont know when i want to wax my truck i do it right i take pretty much all day to do the whole thing. And to keep from getting the plastic just take some prep time and run some painters tape along the edge you are waxing to keep from getting wax residue on it. Thats just me though.

I use NXT on all my vehicles, it's the best. Zach I cheched out your link to pic's of your trucks, enough said. The reflection of the NXT bottle is a great advertisment and reason to use it.

I really like it. If you get it, you might want to consider getting the ICE spray wax too. It's kind of a pain to get off the first time. It's an easy removal if you use the Microfiber towels that they reccomend. Any residue that's left afterwards can be removed with the spray which is really nice for getting pollen and road dust off too if you're **** about that sort of thing like myself lol.

It's expensive, but its not a lazy mans wax....it takes some elbow grease.

It does leave a really nice shine.

I havent tried NXT yet but I've heard great things about it.

My favorite so far is Eagle One WET

I really like it also, i used clay bar, and then sealed it with that stuff, it smells good as ****!! Lol, but it gets your hainds oily....But it works like a charm, if you leave it on too long its kind of hard to whipe off, i got done and later on i kept seeing spots where wax was still on it...

zaino does the the same, but lasts for a long time.

plus, no white residue on plastic, because its a polish.
