    I don't like to comment on what prices people are asking as it is their vehicle and can ask whatever they want.. I would like to see what he calls wax that will not come off. I think you will find it clear delamination and think a pic of the only listed flaw should have been posted. Back in 1974 My fiance decided to surprise me so she and her sisters waxed my 1970 GTO out in the sun while sunbathing and found it got baked on. As soon as the car cooled of that evening the wax came off by simply rewaxing with a liquid wax instead of the paste they used.

    The wax my fiance used was Johnson's butchers wax for wood floors. I have used a lot of different waxes over the years and have found that I am more apt to use an easy wax more often than a good paste wax that is too much work. On my truck I use a wax as you dry spray about once a month and it takes about a half hr. of light work. If you like to use a good paste wax but don;t want an arduous task try waxing a panel at a time and work your way around. It will only take 10 minutes at a time that way. The most important thing to remember is to only wax a clean surface even if you need to wash then clay bar the paint first.

    I have used a lot of different waxes through the years. Zymoil is awesome, but a little expensive. I use Meguiars cleaner wax a lot, and good old green turtle wax. I switch back and forth between these two all of the time.

    Turtle is the way I go. I use meguiars products on my bath toys. And Meguiars cutting and polishing compounds on my truck. I've always had good results with turtle wax as the final step though.

    I keep my truck looking this good as much as I can. It still looks as good today as it did when I had it painted in 2013. 20150523_134131.jpg DSCN1625.JPG DSCN1626.JPG
