Cool Clear coat vs. Waxing...

G'day Folks..
New around here, just joined tonight.. Been looking for a good wax to use on my 06 Charger.. Tried several.. but haven't found one that gives me that deep look yet.. Tried a few products from Mother's and am happy with Mother's.. But still looking for that deep shine on my pearl black paint.. I usually wax my car weekly..and am told that is not good.. that I am wearing the clear coat off.. Is there thruth to this?
Thanx
Mike

Thumbs up Re: Clear coat vs. Waxing...

Welcome to the neighborhood!

I'll admit that the Charger has grown on me and I'm looking forward to the release of the Challenger.

Here's my .02

Since you're willing to put the time into keeping your ride looking it's best you might like the deep, wet glow that you get from the Mothers Ultimate Wax System. Until very recently it's all that's been used on my (daughter's) Black '99 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Even with 109,000+ miles it still looks great.

Wash
Clay
Phase 1 (Pre-Wax Cleaner)
Phase 2 (Sealer/Glaze)
Phase 3 (Carnauba Wax)

or if you want something that looks nearly as good and lasts a little longer

Wash
Clay
Reflections
Reflections Top Coat

Default Re: Clear coat vs. Waxing...

Clay, when properly used (and it's pretty easy to use at that), safely removes surface contaminants that in the old days you'd normally use a rubbing compound to remove.

Watch the Clay Bar Paint Saving System Reel.
