I've been using rejex for my cars the last 4+ years. Mother's FX spray wax in between washes though. Love how rejex is so easy to apply and buff off and the paint shines great after and stays slick for a commendable amount of time.

Ultimate compound is not a wax, but a compound. used to remove scratches and swirls.

Meguiars #7 is a glaze, which gives ZERO protection. Think of it as "makeup for cars"

It will fill in light scratching and swirls for about a day, after that, it breaks down and wears off.

Turtle wax in general is junk.

NXT IS a hybred paint sealant. It is a combination of man made polymers, as well as natural carnuba. You NEED to let it cure on the paint for about 15 to 30 minutes before wiping the excess away. It takes that length of time for the polymers to bond to the surface of the paint. A wipe on, wipe off really wont get you much as far as long lasting protection.

I've started using Croftgate USA Aquanil X and Quick Slick. Check it out: http://www.croftgateusa.com/. I clay barred my car today and gave it the full Croftgate treatment. I should have taken pictures. My car looked awesome.

with my car needing paint and doing body work on it i just use a spray on was. i was using the cheaper meguiars spray wax but i recently started using their ultimate finish spray wax and it is worth the difference. with the clear coat peeling and all the rock chips i never got compliments on my cars paint but with the meguiars ultimate finish spray wax a few people have told me that even with those issue ( and the spots with spray can primer from body work i did ) looks great. water beads off and considering its a spray on wax and i use polishing towels it doesnt last a long time but only needs it about every 3 days. more if you live were there is a lot of dust and grease on the roads.
