what is your choice of Wax for your car &

What is your choice of Wax for your car & where you get it from (online etc)?

Please advise. I am thinking of opening a high-end detailing product shop and looking to see what are the things people would like to see in the area.

Thanks!

Raja

Zaino, but I don't think they do distributorships outside of Hawaii (doesn't Pakshak sell Zaino to HI residents?). Menzerna polishes, Lake Country pads, Clay Magic clay, Optimum No Rinse wash, plush MF towels.

George at Detailed Image did in NY what you're talking about doing, although DI may be solely mail order, I don't know. But if you look at what he sells, he doesn't sell a tremendously broad range of products. Instead, he basically picked all the "favorites" discussed in the online forums. A smart way to go about it, IMO.

I've always used Zymol. I think it does a great job of making the car look good, and protects well. I use the HD Cleans, and titanium. I used the Roug wax on my old car.

Used to be a Zymol fan, but Zaino all the way now. That junk is expensive and time-consuming, but at least it lasts a long time.

Raja-

I would love to see Chemical Guys and SwissVax.

And as someone else said-Dodo Juice/Rubbish Boys. I want some Supernatural!

Are you talking about Aerospace 303? Because you can get that at marine stores.

Yes! I used the stuff on my first car (Buick Grand National) and it worked great on all the black trim!

I use CG 50/50 and just tried P21S 100% Carnuba. An east coast Chemical Guys store would be awesome.

well, trying to get the business plan ready and funds available to see if this is an option.

I have few good plans and hope they materialize by this summer.
thanks all for participating.

I'm a big fan of DuraGloss products. The only brick & mortar places I've found around here that carry their products are CarQuest stores, and usually their selection is fairly limited so I end up having to order online.
