Car Wax Recommendation?
« on: June 19, 2023, 11:42:55 AM »
I finally replaced my 18.5 year old Honda.  I am about to embark on a cross country drive (to a place where I will then be driving on dirt and gravel roads) in my new vehicle and want to put a good coat of wax on it. Thanks!

I am by no means a car waxing fanatic . . . but have used and had no problems with Meguire's Gold Class Premium paste wax.

Another easy option would be Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic spray wax. It looks good, very easy to apply, and will last a bit longer than a traditional carnauba wax.

Good old Turtle Wax in a round plastic bin.  Rub it on well then wipe clean.

Thanks for the suggestions!  I used the Meguire's paste wax today and it looks great, but I'm going to try the others too.

I picked that up a few weeks ago as well after watching a review of a bunch of waxes of YouTube. I'm looking forward to the KISS application of this spray ceramic.
