Default Which Mother's product offers the best UV protection?

Setting aside all other considerations, which Mother's product offers the best UV protection?

-Resistance to or blockage of UV rays and sun damage?
-Durability?

This question relates to a car that is stored outside 24/7 in Southern California and is primarily directed toward Mother's staff. I do use a cover, but even still, I want the best UV protection on the paint itself. (Dark, metallic paint; Japanese car, early 1990s -- if this is a factor).

Also, how often should I re-wax given this application?

Thanks!

I don't think you can measure UV as it pertains to one being better than the other.

But, given the darkness of the paint, your locale and the 24/7 exposure, you should look at waxing every 2-4 weeks for best protection.

If it were me, and waxing that often, I'd go with a synthetic - either FX SynWax or Reflections Car Wax. The ease of removal would make waxing a breeze.

Would frequent use of FX Spray Wax help the UV protection factor in between a full wax job using Reflections or FX wax?

Yes, frequent use of a spray wax like FX or Reflections is a good idea as they can easily extend the life of the traditional protective wax coating below it.

Remember that keeping your vehicle's finish smooth, waxed, and free of contaminants offers protection from all types of potential hazards -- not just UV rays.
