I think it's a "blue collar" type of polish/wax BUT, I've used it for years and there's not many I've used that are any easier to use or last any longer. It's probably not as "refined"
a product as some of the big name ones but, it does the job! It goes on easy and you can almost swat it off with a towel or microfiber cloth. I use a small, dampened sponge to put mine on-it really gets the best coverage using a minimum of polish.

I read alot of reviews online and they were mixed. Some said it didnt work well and others said its great for them, goes on easy. I was going to try this stuff but then i just decided to stick with nxt generation wax.

I have used it for years, and I have allways been happy with it. Looks great and last a very long time. I would give it 2 thumbs up.

I saw old commercials of this stuff, they did a spot on a black cars hood in the junk yard. My jeep has sat being weathered for a year and the clear coat is oxidized if not gone. I might use this stuff and will post pics if you guys want.

i trust nu finish...

its great, i've used it on my cars, and i know Aku on here uses it as well...

lasts long, looks great. easy to apply, and you can put it on in direct sunlight!

it may look more blue collar but in all honesty.... they're just not advertising... theres no fancy car on the bottle, theres not really any commercials that i know of these days... so they stay in business via word of mouth and loyal customers who keep buying their products.

thats all I use, you just dont want to spread it on super thick or youll never get it off, youll be buffing forever.

It always lasts me 6 months before I have to do it again, and it leaves a lot better shine IMO that turtle wax and doesnt leave the greasy residue like turtle wax does either, but its JMO.
