    Bees wax is actually a component of a few carnauba mixtures :)

    Some beading after the recent random rain San Diego had a few days ago. This is using blacklight as a glaze and jetseal on top of that. No butter wet wax since I had no time that day :whistle:

    I’ve used Meguiar’s ultimate wax. I get a great finish for not much effort and the wax is pretty hydrophobic so the beading is good.

    I used the CarGuys one that has carnauba and goes for like 18$ on amazon. its a black bottle that provides a great mirror like finishes and goes on either dry or wet. see picture below.

    Looks good. Important is how long it now lasts and how well water and dirts gets off it when washing etc.

    Call me a fan boy but when its time, Adams. I love all their shit cause it works (I think their orange tire cleaner is my favorite product). I just did the 1st 3 stage correction today (14 hours ish) with Wolfgang 3.0 and the trusty Porter Cable, but I still had to break out the blue pad/polish from Adams to fix a small area and it delivered, like always.

    Two coats of Liquid Glass for my base coat. Then one coat of Turtle Wax Ice spray wax. Final coat of Knipps KPS#635 Eraser Perfection Sealant.

    I love using Adam's Polishes products. I have been using just about all of their products for the past 4 years. They have great customer service and great videos on all their products. I've used their Buttery Wax and also their Americana Paste Wax and they give great gloss depth, shine, and protection. I just did a full detail on my silky silver today including 2 step paint correction using their products. Check them out.

    Wish there were that many empty car parks at my local Bunnings. Car looks fantastic. I’ve looked at the Chemical Guys products but freight from your side of the country to mine costs a bomb.

    How the hell did you know I was in a Bunnings car Park?
    Anyway if you like try these guys in Perth who supply the chemical guys stuff as it’s where I get mine from.
    Chemical Guys Western Australia
    Otherwise tell me what you want and I can found out how much to post it to you via Austpost.

    Can’t give away all my secrets but have a look in the background of your pic. You’ll work it out.

    Thanks for the link but that’s the one I’ve already checked out. I know it seems counter intuitive baulking at 20-30 bucks freight after droppping Xthousand on the car but I don’t know enough about detailing products to know whether it’s worth paying the freight compared to buying similar stuff locally without the freight costs.

    They use austpost anyway. Just bought some more stuff today. Its worth it to get butter wet wax and v07 detail spray anyway. I bought 4 litres of the V07!

    I just had another look. A gallon of the butter wet wax is 65 bucks and freight is 35 bucks. 100 bucks total. Like I said I’m sure it’s good stuff but freight to me is wasted money if I can get similar stuff locally.
