Yellow wax is pretty descent stuff, I used to use it on high-end business jets a lot, as well as der-real products (out of business now ).
And if I remember right it smells good too! lol

is your paint that bad? i mean I know its good stuff but if your paint is super new (like an 07 should be) I would think normal wax would do the trick.

well this stuff just makes it last longer so that every 3 months it will need waxing... checked with the bodyshop and they used this and that #16 which I couldn't find... :-(

#26 is a pure wax... it doesnt have nay abrasives on the product... when detailing I use #26 and #7 that is the best LSP formula... great shine every time. You can buy #16 here in the US something about that it doesnt meet the FDAs standards or something along those lines.. but detailers will still go out of their way and import it in... that stuff is liquid sex to a car. But the best wax Ive used is Megs #21 that stuff will last forever and it will make all the dark paints or paints with a metallic flake really pop and wet looking.

You can pick #26 up at any autoparts store. The other #'s you have to go online or to a detailing shop or business that sells products

#26 has a huge following among pro detailers as a inexpensive otc wax

found what?? Check out Auto Detailing Solutions -- Meguiar's Car Wax, Auto Polish & Detailing Supplies Store they usually have some good deals and also check out We Are Car Care -- Car Wax, Car Polish, Auto Detailing Supplies, Car Buffers & Car Accessories Store.. those are the two main places where I get my products from.. very top notch service from both. I had a bottle of #21 explode in the box covering everything and ADS sent me another box and replaced everything and told me to keep the bottles covered in #21 wax... some have a kit thats like $150 that includes a PC, pads, some wax and polish

Ive already tackled our two lawn mowers, my ATV helmet, I took my metal polish to a tea pot, also I took some #40 to my rainbow sandals and it actually helped a bit lol... also took leather cleaner to our couch and now no one can sit in it because you will slide out of it lol and I cleaned up my cell phone and a few scratched CDs... I got so bored around 3am this morning I waxed my model cars... yeah Im addicted and looking for work but no one is taking the bait lol

Thanks for that link! I made an order on 2 of those wash mittens...my paint job is flawless since it was re painted 3 months ago, I called and asked the bodywork guys (very nice place) and they said it was okay to wax, and that I should use Megiar's Gold Class or #26, NO clay barring...

I might be going with the G110 actually and save a little more coin. It'll do just as good of a job from what I've heard and seen.
