    Yeah that stuff works great. I use it on chrome, polished aluminum, and stainless.

    I have never used it but Colinite 845 wax gets great reviews for durability.

    Some users swear they are getting 6 months out of an application.

    Whatever you use, use a spray wax after each wash to help your protection last longer.

    Durability is also related to how well the surface is prepped. Make sure your paint is clean. I clay my paint before applying any wax or sealant.

    Like others said, it's a good idea to remove any swirls or defects before you wax. Wax can enhance their appearance.

    Just FYI A little bird told me that 90% of the waxes and polishes are made by one company in Los Angeles.

    Zymol is a much better carnuba than mother's or maguiers IMO. It will make easy work of those water spots, and even helps plastics look better. I usually follow it up with the Turtle Wax ICE paste.

    Warner Chemical -

    for the record, Zymol doesn't manufacture anything.

    You realize that doesn't mean they have the exact same ingredients/formula right? So I'm forced to ask what's the point?
