Best wax to use?

What wax do you use? What is the best for the Toyota paint?

Check out the detailing section of the forum.

I use Zymol Creame. Best wax. ever. period. one tub is pricey, but it'll last you the better part of a year, if not longer, and was found to give the best clarity

But other members will chime in here with different answers, so good luck!

x2 on the Detailing section - should already be a ton of info in there about it.

There really isn't one wax that is best for any certain vehicle.

I use Griot's Garage - www.GriotsGarage.com - for all of my car detailing stuff.

Waxing sucks if you ask me liquid glass paint sealant once a year it is some gnarly shit I use it on my truck and every time I get it muddy I just pressure wash it then dry it off normal dirt just come right off when it rains it is definitely the best thing I have found

Holy run-on sentence, Batman!

There is definitely more to caring for your paint than just wax - be sure to read some of the guides on here for the best results.

this stuff is amazing. i've used all kinds of crap before, but this stuff holds up well. My truck even looks great after i've driven it through the rain. Before it looked dirty as hell after driving in the rain. I only used the clay bar and the z2 , not the z6 enhancer.

If your going for shine, go with a good carnauba wax. If your going for more protection go with a sealant. As stated before, prep is key.

I personally like to layer a carnauba over a sealant. I like using Finish Kare 1000p (especially for white paint) and top it with Dodo Juice Hard Candy That combo really makes my white paint POP! White is probably the hardest color to really make stand out.

Zymol= A sucker is born every minute!

I was the West Coast Regional sales manager for "Z" and it is the most over-hyped...over-priced stuff out there. It is basically fancy packaged Turtle Wax.

And yes, I was the sucker that left a great job to sign on with this company.

I highly recommend Finish Kare 1000p! Research it and you will find many other people who have had success with it on their white vehicles

A couple pics of mine after FK 1000p. Pics don't do it justice (crappy cell phone camera)
