Question Wax

Hi all,

I bought a new 2003 Ford Explorer XLT Sport during the winter. Now, with the weather getting warmer here in the Midwest I'd like to protect the paint with some quality wax/paint protectant. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good wax/paint protectant. I'd really like to get the best stuff out there.

Thanks,
Pon

You'll get varied opinions on this one....

Zymol and Meguiar's are the best out there.

What about these Teflon or PTFE polishes that claim they last five years (i.e., 5star & Toughguard)? I'm a bit skeptical on those products. I've heard that Teflon, to be properly adhered, has to be applied at over 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

No. Wax often with good quality product and you'll be fine.

That stuff was bogus in the 1970's !

Lots of opinions. I have ran the gauntlet on polishes in the past 50 years. 4 bucks a can to 15 bucks a can. None will last 5 years. Most wont last a year. 3 months really stretch's it. Lots are gone the first car wash. I have started using meguires and like it. Use the meguires detail spray in between was jobs. A little clay magic if I pick up any undesireable contaminants. El cheapo "kit" wax dont do to bad. But both veh's are garage kept, dont see muddy roads or dusty roads and very little salt for that matter.

Thanks everyone! I've heard much about Meguiar's and, I think that's the avenue I'll take. My neighbor used to own his own body shop and (I believe) told me to use Meguiar's as well (he's out of town much so I don't have many opportunities to confirm what he said). Thanks again!
