I LOVE and highly recommend Zaino Z2 protectant/polish. I have been using it for years...so easy to work with and lasts a long time. You have to order it from their web site but it is worth it.

I have tried all kinds of wax, and while there are many good ones, I strongly recommend any wax by Collinite. It is not as well known, and no where near as expensive, as others, but I think it is the best. My favorite is Collinite Insulator Wax, which has been used for years in the aerospace industries. It may not sound like a car wax, but it is the perfect wax for cars, especially if you live in a winter climate. I have waxed cars in September that keep beading thru winter months into spring, and I live in upstate New York lake effect snow country. It is a liquid wax that goes on easy and wipes off easily (just don't put it on too heavily - a light coating is all it takes). I know professionals in the area that won't use anything but Insulator wax. It is extremely long lasting, and second coats of other wax products won't hurt it. Try it. If you can't find it, try going to www.autogeek.net.

Last weekend I spent 4-5 hours detailing the **** out of Black Betty
- Washed her using two buckets (Meguiars gold class wash)
-dried using large microfiber towels
-Nano glide and Nano Skinned every painted surface
-polished all painted parts with Meguiar's ultimate polish
-waxed (2 coats) using Meguiars ultimate liquid wax


unfortunately, it rained two days later, and with the amount of yellow dust (pollution from China) that we get here, she now looks like I took her on a lite offroading adventure... rain here looks like mud...

Driving "Black Betty" w/ a vengence!

I use Eurotech E7000. I LOVE this stuff. I can wax my truck in about an hour... I wax the entire truck and then go back and take it all off. No dust, no white stuff left behind.. Plus it gives her a nice deep shine!

Agree. Great stuff.
Try a topcoat of Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax. (especially on dark colors)

Seems like Meguiar's has lots of similar products. Has anyone tried Meguiar's G15812 Ultimate Black Plastic Restorer for the many exterior black plastic parts on a TH. Looks like this might be a good choice.

Meguiar's Gold Class for me.

I don't use anything on the exterior black plastic trim. Once you start doing that you will have to keep doing it forever. Just wash it with regular car wash soap and leave alone.
