wax??
« on: March 10, 2015, 06:15:03 AM »
 Years ago I used a "spray" car wax..I forget the brand. It was SO easy. You sprayed on, gave it a quick swirl around with one towel, about 30 seconds later it dried, you wiped it off with a 2nd towel and moved to the next 3 or 4ft section....totally painless and left a great shine!
 I have since tried several brands...none have worked like the one I forgot the name of.

Does anyone have "personal experience" with one they just love?

In search of a good "lazy man's wax"   ???

I have used other Turtle Wax products over the years though not this one; https://www.turtlewax.com/shop/products/turtle-wax-performance-plus-express-shine-carnauba-wax-16-fl-oz-
It doesn't sound like it could any easier than this. I am going to get some and give it a try.

Here is the test;
Absolutely as easy as it says on the bottle



Hard to really tell the shine as I just gave a buffing to the whole hull, but I can certainly see the shine and it will definitely make it easy to throw some polish on it.



Oh and I almost forgot to mention, CHEAP! $4 for 16oz at WalMart right now, going to have to go back and stock up.
