ULTIMATE Paste Wax

My Son in FL told me to try Meguiars "Ultimate" paste wax because even in the hot FL sun it lasts. Now I know some of you owners go the absolute finish route to get a superb shine/finish and more power to you but for this old fart I've never felt a surface as smooth as my Camaro or as shiny after using this easy paste wax. $20 a can with a micro cloth.

I'm not surprised, Meguiar's is a name I rely on!

I will never buff again...you don't need to anymore, IMO - google these:

Ultima Paint Guard Plus
Blackfire Crystal Seal
Optimum Opti-Seal

These you wipe on like windex, and walk away...

Look into it...no scam...

Glen, while these are easier, sometimes I just enjoy putting on a paste wax. It's more fun

Weird that when something is too easy, it loses it's "fun" value


It's the same thing that happened with my opticoat. I am polishing it all off because I missed waxing lol
