    I'm going to wax my baby tomorrow and I bought this stuff at wally world. Will it do the job and give it a nice wet look or should I just return it?

    It has a real nice look, it just doesn't last long. I'd take it back and get Meguiars NXT Wax. Somewhat improved shine and way more durable.

    Gold Class stains trim like nothing else. plus leave it on too long and it is such a bear to get off. all in all not a very user friendly wax. i'm w/ scottwax, return it and get NXT.

    :rofl:

    Get the Professional Polish and the EX-P Sealant if you do order some Poorboy's stuff. They also have some pretty good swirl removers, but they tend to work best with a PC or a rotary than by hand.

    PC is fine. I used Poorboy's SSR2 with my PC and the orange cutting pad. :eek3: :bowdown: Left an almost flawless finish, perfect for laying some VM and EX-P over it.

    Oh, I am talking about the orange cutting pad I got with my PC through Autopia's store (PC 7424, backing plate, 5" counterweight, finishing, polishing and cutting pads). I'm going to be trying a few different pad manufacturers to see whose I like best.

    thats what I used last time, man it looked GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD too bad it lasted about 4 or 6 weeks and yes it is a PAIN to get off...I do my car in sections, a door, a rear fender, a hood, etc piece by piece...needless to say in a short amount of time to do one panel, and then wipe it off, the wax hardened and was a major pain in the ass to get off, so much so I actually left little bits of it on there because I got so tired of trying to get that stuff off...I'm going zaino I think on my next purchase this week.

    Zaino can be an even bigger PITA to use. Unless you like waiting, you have to mix it with ZFX and only the amount you need at a time, Dawn washing etc. If you want a fool proof sealant system that is compatible with other products without Dawn washing, is a true wipe on and wipe off product, go with the new Wolfgang Sealant.
