    i had to use long exposure times to get the car to show up...but it also means you can see every flaw in the paint...my car is in DESPERATE need of a good waxing... I wish i had the time/means/etc etc to do so :-/

    I probably would recognize the building if you would compress the pictures so I can see them sometime before summer. ;)

    oh, god, need a claying is an understatement....i went from waxing every weekend...to going 6+ months (texas summer) w/o a single WASH, let alone "wax", adn i know i have done irreverisble damage to my paint by letting the massive amount of dirt bake into the paint like i did...but i do need a clay session...but living in an apartment, w/o acces to a hose, or coverd area, its a severe pain in the ass...and you cant go use a dock at the power wash unless its the middle of the night, so your not holding up the line...

    He means you don't wax your car enough to only be using a regular wax. You need something that's going to last longer than 3 months.

    Actually, it means look in the product review sticky-the new Wolfgang Sealant. Very good initial impression and it is supposed to be very durable. Real close to the carnauba liquid look and a piece of cake to use.

    :uh: Didn't see that one. I'm still right, though. Check my reply in there.

    Actually, Zaino lasts a long time, so his paint still may be protected. Wolfgang would probably be a more user friendly solution if he doesn't want to wax often.

    Zaino has protected my paint, generally, i really dont think anything could have really slowed the process any better/worse in teh same conditions...i need to get w/ you scott and we need to discuss things to keep my paint hunky-doory, or, if you think its going downhill fast...
