    Has anyone else used this Dri Wash N Guard? According to the website, it protects against oxidation? I may be inclinued to use it a few times a year for protection as opposed to using it as a waterless wash.

    I have been using DWG since 1996

    I have never had a dissatisfied customer

    Everybody I have sold to or given to has come back for more

    It is extremely easy to use and will protect and shine your car like nothing else

    try this test for yourself

    do 1/2 of your hood with your favorite wax
    then
    do the other 1/2 with DWG

    a true side by side comparison

    regards

    Meguiars NXT is the easiest I have found (no white residue). I like how it shines.

    I like the mequier NXT sythetic. No white residue to clean off of the black stuff. BUT I think the most important thing here is that your car/truck is waxed at least every three months. I am kinda going to a bit longer to see if the synthetic stuff lasts any longer

    I used meguiars #20 on the truck over the weekend. Not outstanding depth, but for a sealant, I wouldnt really expect that, however, it does provide a very slick feel and has some nice durability.

    Here are a couple of photos of the hood on my Taco after 2 applications of Poorboy's Polish & Sealant followed by one application of their wax called Black Hole.....

    JoePA, The truck looks great man. Just one thing, Black Hole is a glaze and not a wax. Black Hole doesnt give the same protection as a wax or sealant will. However, The PwS you applied first should provide you w/ enough protection to not worry about having to top the BH any time real soon.
