    Yeah, it's pretty good stuff. Royal Blue is even better.

    They are both Carnauba based so you won't go wrong either way...;)

    I used to use P21S, and it applies very nice and buffs off easily. I just bought Pete's 53 (chemicalguys.com stocks it). I find the Pete's 53 inferior and will switch back to the P21S. The Pete's paste is thinner, and it gets hard very fast and not easy to buff by hand.

    That's the whole joy of the P21S: wipe on/wipe off very easily so I can wax the whole truck in 15-20 minutes.

    So there are big differences in carnuba waxes. I haven't tried Mother's but I can highly recommend the P21S Concours.

    Anything Mothers is going to be good. I've never used a product from them where I wasnt pleased.

    I will tell you this, I just purchased Poorboys Natty Blue and let me tell ya, big difference.

    I just got it and I've only waxed two customer cars with it so far, one with the polisher and one by hand. The shine was unbelievable and very clean looking, one car was black, the other red wine, both looked outstanding. How long it lasts, I dont know yet.

    The reason why I bought it and I can vouch that its absolutely true is its so easy to wipe off. I do a section at a time when I wax. Started with the roof and when I wiped it off, I thought I didnt put enough on there cause it wiped off so easy, so I did the hood. Again, thought this is too easy. So I went to the trunk and really laid a thick coat on. Took longer to haze but the wipe off was again easy. Trust me, it was worth the $20 for the 16 oz bottle. You dont have to lay it on thick like I did the trunk, results were the same. Here's the link incase anyones interested: http://www.autogeek.net/poorboys-nattys-blue-liquid-wax.html

    I wont use anything else until something proves to be better.

    You know that you DON'T allow Pete's to dry before removing, right?

    I was buffing it off as soon as I applied it into the paint. It was warm out and it got kind of like the glaze on a Krispy Kreme in short time. Seems the P21S stays soft longer. It came off, it just took more muscle. I did not need to use my PC to buff off the P21S, but I can see it would be helpful with Pete's.

    However, I am second guessing using wax at all now, on top of Klasse SG sealant. I did half of my hood with Pete's and really didn't see a difference. I don't think the problem is the wax, but that the Klasse already has a good shine, and I don't think wax adds any luster to a silver streak, like it does on darker paint. Maybe I will just wax the front end now for easier bug removal.

    But to the OP, Mother's is still a very good wax. May not last as long as more expensive brands, but for the price it can't be beat.(IMO)
