    I bought this product and the Nufinish scratch doctor, while i was in el paso, I read some good reviews about it, and im wondering if anyone here has tried it, but i would like to see some opinions before using, last product i used was meguiars gold class, and i dont like the rsults a lot, it wears off to quick and is a pain in the ass to apply and remove...

    First of all, it states its a polish, but it doesn't mention that you should add a wax after that, so it is supposed to protect the paint as well?

    also, being a polish, would i damage my clearcoat/paint if I use this product regularly lets say every 2 months or so?

    We use it and it works great! Just make sure you rub it in good and hard (for you dirty minds) and it'll be great!

    I've used that polish for years with really good results, but after reading in the "detailing" section of this forum that a "polish" actually strips, I've been seriously thinking about switching to a different product that's more like a "wax" just to see the difference myself. Nu Finish claims it will last an entire year and I like the sound of that. I want to avoid having to reapply a wax often since it's so time consuming and a PITA. Hopefully others can chime in with ideas on a product that can last a longer time without having to reapply so often.:confused:

    thats exactly why I am concerned, maybe it would be good idea to use it once a year and then add another wax on top of it???

    A whole lot,But not satify
    I have bad experience with the Nu Finish, I agreed with ClemsonTacoma after awhile for me it leave that streak(mark) which noticeable.May be it because my truck is black. I threw away after one use.

    I've used that stuff for years before switching to Zaino the last two years.

    I used to use it on my 96 tacoma. Worked great.... and the truck always looked great.
