I use Autoglym, but not for any specific reason to be honest.
It was well priced and i've never had a poblem with it.

I have a stockpile of Meguiar's NXT TechWax 2.0... so I use that for touch-up waxes....

If I'm feeling bored, I'll use Chemical Guys Lava which really brings out the color of the soul red paint.

But for general use, I use Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0... Lasts about 5 months for me in a Seattle "winter"....

Ive been using Optimum opti-seal and a mixture of griots wax and griots spray wax as I dry the car. I realistically dont even really need the wax on with the opti-seal, but I have it so I use it.

I also bought a gallon jug of Chemical Guys clay lube that I use as a "waterless" detailer when amazon had a sale for like $15-20 for it. Obviously works great for clay or "nanoclay" or whatever its called, but i found that as a spray detailer, it can be diluted a good bit and still very slick. Ive been diluting anywhere from 5-10:1 with water and it works just as well, and obviously saves a ton of product.

I just tried Meguiars White Wax and like it very much. Easy on, easy off. Does not stain trim or leave a dusty mess like some of the cheaper waxes. I’ll continue to use it since the results were pretty impressive IMO. I also use Meguiars Ultimate Compound and Nano Skin and can highly recommend both.

Collinite Fleetwax PASTE (885)

I found it a hell of a long time ago for use on boats, which typically undergo MUCH harsher environmental treatment than cars. It's the real deal.

Second that Collinite but mine is 845 and liquid. This stuff is the real deal, lasts for a few months. If garaged I'm sure longer. The only annoying part is you can't really see it on a white car but man once applied water does not stick.

"Collinite 845. Spread it thin."


Never even heard of the stuff. Looking it over it does seem pretty impressive. I think it would be perfect for use on wheels to give them a break from the winter weather.

845 is good stuff but nowhere near the durability of the 885 paste, and the paste is not that hard to apply and buff. I have used both in marine applications, which are far more-severe, and there is a quite-material difference between the two.

TAKE THE EXTRA 10 MINUTES TO USE THE PASTE.
