For a over the counter wax, NXT I would probably say is the best.....I preferred the richness of the paste, however the liquid is fine, Mark..

You need something like that living in a costal area too....

so what would be a better option for me, and where would be a good place to get some "pro wax" ?

alot depends on how often you want to wax, and what you are looking for. Do you want shine, but less durability? Or something durable, but not a easy on/off application? Or something that that has it all, but costs $$$....

Some sealants have a great shine, but tend to amplify, or shine so much, you see minor scratches in the paint you didn't notice before. Carnuba waxes look great, but might be less durable.... Alot of people use a process-- after a wash they use a clay bar-----then polish, then wax...after that just wax once a month.

Here are some links to some sites and the products I use..

my fav-- but expensive, bought the 32oz. bottle, will last me quite awhile...

http://www.properautocare.com/menzernafmj.html



a good- all in one, polish, cleaner, sealant...

http://www.properautocare.com/kla-16.html


that site has free shipping over 50$--- coupon code @ checkout for 10% off was-- CMAHOLIDAY
might still work..


another good one... this site has 20% off entire order right now !! coupon code= SANTA20

http://www.autogeek.net/four-star-paint-protection.html

thinking of getting the 64oz myself, since I do other people's cars too...with the sale & coupon code, probably save myself almost 25$/45% off the bottle...

alot of people use these 2 carnubas waxes, looks great, but a little more elbow grease.....

http://www.autogeek.net/collinite-insulator-wax-845.html

tip*-- always use a good microfiber towel to cut down on minor scratches, when removing wax off your car. I even use them to dry my car off after a wash.... good site for a basic purchase---

pics after using Full Molecular Jacket, looked better when the sun was out, metallic paint really popped some flakes... but the products I linked will also give you a nice gloss, and protection...
