I have just looked at a car wax " Pinacle Signature Series II Carnauba Wax" Just would like to know if anyone has used this wax and what you might think of it I have used Meguiars Ultimate Past wax and also like it. I would like to try something new but just want to make sure it is worth my time putting it on

I've used it, it's a nice wax.

I've used a lot of expensive waxes and sealants, from $300 Zymol to $3 Kit Wax. They all work, and work well. Almost all of them are made at Underwriters Laboratories on contract. Meguiars is not. A few others probably aren't either.

How you use them is far more critical than the name on the bottle.

Absolutely spot on. :clap:

And, most people don't. Any decent wax will do the job. The more important step is to clay bar prior to any wax job.

What do you mean by clay bar first ?

Check out: http://www.detailedimage.com/Auto-Detailing-Guide/Clay-Bar/

"Using a clay bar will remove embedded surface contamination that still remains after a maintenance wash. Sometimes the contamination removed is not always visible on the paint to the naked eye. After using a clay bar on your paint you will be left with a surface that is as smooth as glass and properly prepped. It is now ready for polish or for you to apply layers of protection."

Understatement, for certain. How about, in most cases, the contamination removed is not always visible on the paint to the naked eye.

All you need to do is rub your hand over any part of your just-washed vehicle, and you'll feel this debris. Put a baggie over your hand, then try it. Then clay bar that same section, and do it again. Oh, and look at the clay bar after doing a small section of your just-washed vehicle.

Welcome to the world of proper car finish maintenance! ;)

Thank you very much. Now I understand how some auto have that awesome car finish.


No, that would be the numerous steps and full day of work with a Porter Cable prior to the wax job. Another subject ;)
