    Final Polish or Vanilla Moose?

    I think Final Polish has a slight edge, due to the fact that it's a polymer and will protect between waxes. Since it's a polymer, can it be stripped the same way as a carnuba?

    I am sure you can strip Final Polish with a good paint cleaner or swirl remover. Final Polish is a great product, leaves the paint very slick and it does last a long time.

    When I do a 3-step on paint in good condition, I use Vanilla Moose, Final Polish and S100 or Carnuba Moose (in that order.

    No, the Vanilla Moose will strip the S100.

    Why would you use both? Aren't they "compatible" products, ie one or the other? Vanilla Moose and Final Polish, I mean.

    Try ordering it from Brian (NY Detailer) on Autopia. I think he still sells it.

    They used to sell Final Polish in quarts for about $21.50 or so, which is about the $20 threshold.

    Just order two pints, I guess. :dunno:

    I think Vanilla Moose is slightly more abrasive than Final Polish, and anyway, polishing twice will add even more depth to the paint.

    Gotcha. My needs are fairly basic. I'll stick with the Vanilla Moose, I think. I don't really need the benefit of the sealant either, since I'm pretty religious about waxing every 3 months.
