No more waxing, Cquartz Finest

For years I have tried all kinds of products to protect my cars, but I was never satisfied. It didn't last long enough, or it did not protect the paint properly. I now had a shop apply two coats of Cquartz Finest to the body and the wheels and it is incredible.

Bird droppings do no longer burn into the paint. I let the car dry in the sun at 90F and all the deposits came off during a ride through rain. Brake dust does not stick to the wheels anymore. After a long drive and the front of the car being covered with dead bugs, I simply hose it down and wash the car without using any pressure and it flies off.

After 4 months of driving over 6,000 miles, look at how the hood of the car almost refuses to get wet. I have never seen anything like this. I will post another clip after the winter.

This is a fantastic product. I had three coats of the standard CQuartz on my last car. Lasts forever and it is extremely glossy.

Many of us have been using OptiGuard over here.

Had to try this based on what I was hearing. So far so good. I've had the Finest on for a couple of weeks, and it still looks very nice! Cheers.
