Sealants have been shown to not really do much. Won't protect the paint much. Not at all against bird droppings. Should use a coating instead and then you can wax over.

Try meguiars ultimate wax. It's really a sealant so it will last longer and it's wipe on wipe off. Won't stain trim and can be applied in the sun.

Mothers brazilian carnuba cleaner wax. Ik the cleaner wax is a little stronger for a new car but it applies and removes so easily I love it. The turtle wax hard shell stuff is much harder to remove imo.

My uncle used the zano brothers wax setup on his 99 ss camaro and 4 years later after no wax it still beads up, however it does has 23k miles on it lol


The carnuba definitely brings out the black some more than the turtle stuff, especially after a clay bar. Will post pics soon.
