    I used Maguire's Gold Class carnuba/polymer paste wax. I think polymers last longer, carnuba's are reported to leave a better shine. Go figure.....

    I used Black Magic liquid poly on my '05 GTO and it looks like new, but they haven't made that wax in several years.

    Hands down the best combo I've found is using Jescar Powerlock + paint sealant and then following up with two coats of Collinite 845 insulator wax. The look of the car is incredible after doing a full decon and polish. The hydrophobicity is also unreal. Water just doesn't want to stick. Usually lasts 7-9months for me with a normal washing routine of every week or two. Using Optimum Car Wax Spray as a drying aid helps keep a fresh light layer of wax on the car too.

    Do you apply it by hand or rotary buffer?
