Default I bought the "New" Rain-X car wax and tried it on the........

Vette :eek: :eek: I put it on the colored hard top and the rear quarters :cool: Man-O-Man this stuff is SLICK! It so slick a spider can't walk on it :lol: :lol:

Truth is, the product is a spray on and wipe off...don't poo-poo it yet....I think I'm begining to like it. It rubs in well and comes off with out alot of hard work.

Its easy to put on a "wet or dry" surface and it really puts a very nice deep shine on you paint. It's thick and a little goe's a looooooong way :yesnod:

So far I like its deep shine and the way it goes on and comes off :yesnod: plus there is no powdery white "after dust" floating around. It beads water like crazy! :crazy: :yesnod: Nice BIG water drops that fall off very, very easy IE I think it will keep the water spotting way down. I'll let you know more about that after the next rain storm.

I'll keep everyone posted as I use this product for the next few months :yesnod: . This just might be a good product to use over a good base coat of Carnuba wax :cheers:
Larry :steering:

Is it like their polymer wax, or is this just a "quick shine" product? (like the Z6 gloss enahancer). I'm curious as to whether is is supposed to last like a polymer coating, or just for short term shine.

Thanks for posting.

looks like the spray-on product is a between-waxes shine.
