    I previously used to use P21S carnauba wax, but after spending few weeks researching, I have recently got some Chemical Guys 50/50 wax.

    I also picked up some of that Zaino Clear Seal and Chemical Guys EZ Creme Glaze.

    Weather permitting, I'll be doing some car detailing on Easter weekend. Will try get some pics so you can see the results

    I thought about Zaino, but when I washed the car the other day, the Meguiars survived all the snow and salt. Still beading

    Megs caranaba (spelling!) wax usually. I 've tried their Quick detailer too which is good and takes a fraction of the time of normal wax, just spray it on, let it go hazy and buff it off.

    Ash888 - glaze it with either ClearKote Red Moose Glaze or Poorboy's Black Hole, and wax with Natty's Red or Dodo Juice Orange Crush/Banana Armour.

    i think i just went detailing crazy - just ordered:

    Valet Pro - PH Neutral Snow Foam
    Sonus SFX Ultra-Fine Detailing Clay Sampler
    Collinite No. 476S - Super Doublecoat Auto Wax
    Meguiars Foam Applicators Pkg/2
    Huge 38" x 28" Microfibre Drying Towel
    Meguiars Lambswool Wash Mitt
    Ultimate Ultra-Plush Buffing Cloth 16" x 16"

    gave the car a wash yesterday with showroom shine stuff and its pretty shiny at the moment, beeding water well too. but after reading a little bit more about that stuff decided its not the right stuff for me. lets hope the above will do a better job.

    i've used the PH neutral snow foam, Collinite 476s and the megs applicators and lambswool mitt.. all excellent products pallarisari! i'm sure you'll be well pleased with them!

    bilt hamber auto foam is a better option than the PH neutral stuff but the differences are minimal!

    as far as the original OP though.. which wax do you use?? I was using Autosmart Carnauba Wax, i've now moved onto Collinite 476S which is fantastic!!
