Old Fashioned Water and unthought of polish
I prefer the old fashioned wash and dry with chamois method. Something I have tried I learned from a boat dealer the other day. There is a product made by Starbrite. It is a premium marine boat/RV fiberglass polish. It contains no abrasives that can scratch a gelcoat or in this case a clearcoat finish. It also contains Teflon. Anyway, this guy has been using this polish on a Red 98 Eclipse that he showed me and the paint looks and feels like new. He stated he has been using the stuff for over 15 years. It was developed for protecting marine boats from saltwater and brine as well as sun oxidation. If it works under those conditions it would have to work for a clearcoat finish. Anyway, I picked up a bottle at a local marina for about $14. I later found out some Walmarts have it for about $11 a bottle. The directions say it can be used for boats, RV's, and cars. It goeson real smooth and buffs off very easily with clean cloth. i have never felt such a smooth finish on a car. The teflon makes the water slide off like it was duck feathers. It really brings out the deep metallic of My storm grey 2005 NISMO. Two months later it still feels and looks like th day I applied. No more auto waxes for me. I am going back and thnaking guy for turning me on to this. Give it a try. You won't go back to wax.
