Found some pics of my girlfriends car that I waxed with P21S. Again, this is NOT my car.


Clay bar then Klasse All In One then Klasse Glaze then P21S

Here's just a big pic... Another shot

"As seen on TV!" Eh, I'm not impressed with it. It's just like IBIZ. Basic stuff with hyped up ads. But I could be wrong...

My neighbor used to put that on his Lincoln. He would apply, then drive, then spend a long ass time buffing it off, elbow greese indeed.

That's what's so good about P21s, you don't need alot of it per application and it just buffs off SO EASILY. Sure, each container costs ~$30, but from the two cars that I did (mine and g/f), the container is still full, hardly even touched.

I clay bar, then use the Eagle One NanoWax. The water beads up for 6-8 months (which is good, because it won't stop raining for that long at least.)

Other than that, not much else. I use the Mother's Back-to-black on the trim.

ive used zymol and P21S.

Both are great. Zymol is more expensive but gives your car that showroom shine.

P21S is good for a quick shine that looks great, but it wont last as long as the Zymol.

I would recommend both to everyone.


Also i noticed that someone mentioned they use a automatic buffer. From what I have been told is that machine buffers are bad for your car because you can damage the clear coat and also you can buff out off the wax you just put on. thats what I have heard. I personally am more a fan of hand buffing.

Have tried almost all products and finally settled

On Zaino Z2, Z5, AIO, C/S, for the best protection and shine Iver ever seen.
Their ZPC-Fusion is an awesome light scratch and swirl remover. Their Z16 I think is the best tire dressing Iver ever used too. DanF

Without doubt, Meguiars MXT Tech Wax. Combined with MF to dry off.

Ive used all sorts of different waxes and polishes, it really depends on the condition of your paint. Nu Finish is actually really good if you want a long lasting bead, zaino is great cuz it shines like nothing ive seen but doesnt protect as well as real waxes, meguires gold class is what i use now, its ok i wouldnt say its great tho, i want to try p21s tho i hear its great stuff....maybe when i have extra money..
