Zymol wax

Who has used this wax? How do you like the results? I hear it is really good, probably one of the best on the market. I bought it basically to hide some swirl marks I have on my truck and was told this wax will do the job and give a real good shine. Other waxes don't seem to cover up the swirls. I've tried many but didn't have good luck.

Are you talking about the wax thats light blue in color? Ive used it. When you use it make sure you dont put too much on because its hard to get off. It usually last like a couple weeks, maybe a month max. If your looking for a good over the counter wax get some Meguires nxt.

I have the NXT wax. It is good but it did not cover up the swirls the last time I used it. I used the zymol on my mustang today and I am very satisfied with the results. The ranger will be done tomorrow.

wax wasnt created to "cover up" or "hide" swirls and scratches... its a protectant against the sun, contaminates and other crap thats out in the air. As Trent stated Megs Ultimate Compound is the way to go, it will remove most if not all of the swirls. The only way to get rid of swirls and scratches is to actually remove the clearcoat now when I saw remove the clearcoat Im not talking about all of it maybe .000015% of it depending on what product you are using and what pads if you are using a DA or rotary. Hiding swirls will just cover the stab wound with a small bandaid.

Im mainly all for Meguiars products just because Ive had great luck with it and it does an amazing job and their customer service is great to work with. Best consumer wax I found is NXT it smells so awesome... really brings a good shine to any color and makes metal flakes POP. On darker colors id recommend Gold Class, gives blacks a really deep wet look. I mainly use #26 adn #7 a wax and a pure polish (no cut) lasts a LONG time months at a time... but #21 will last just as long and you will not have to do the extra step of polishing with #7 but you can and it will just add to the wetness of the paint.
