Nu Finish VS Wax

What does everybody think about Nu Finish, better than wax? not better than wax?

Nu Finish.....Junk

Comparing Nu Finish to ANY wax is like comparing a Corvette to a Chevette.
I would rather rub dirt into my paint then use Nu Finish.

If you are looking to buy something over the counter, stick with Meguiars or something to that nature.

First off, Nu-Finish is NOT a wax, its a polymer coating....actually one of the earlier polymer polishes available. (You'll notice that they call it a polish and not a wax). If you're vehicle's finish hasn't been properly maintained, Nu-Finish may achieve better results than simply washing and trying to restore the finish with a wax with one caveat. Nu-Finish isn't going to get you that deep down mirror shine, yes it will gloss the surface and clean it, but that deep mirror reflection just isn't within its abilities. If however you're paint is in good condition and still has some of its original gloss, you'd be much better off picking up a polishing compound and a high quality wax or polymer. With some elbow grease, the results will be much better than with the Nu-Finish.

If you'd like an all in one product, similar to Nu-Finish, buy a bottle of Maguire's Tech-Wax, that stuff really works well and layers with add'l applications. Costs a bit more than Nu-Finish, but well worth it.

Another GREAT 1-stepper is Mequiars #66. I use it religiously.
Liquid though, so a buffer is a must to achieve decent results.

I've used Nu Finish on my '88 S10 since it was new. Paint still looks great especially considering it is 19 years old and spent many hot summers baking in the sun. Just keep the Nu Finish off of any black trim!

I hear that good polishes remove things such as wax and even a thin layer of clearcoat. Does Nu Finish do this?

ReJex

A product called ReJex is almost a miracle...goes on easy, NO dusting and wipes to a mirror shine. I have a box full of Zaino but the Rejex is forever and lasts for many months here in Florida. On the web by mail order.

Not sure why you say this about NU finish. I have been using NU finish for I would say 15 years at least. I like the product, water will bead for almost a year and dish soap does not take it off. I used to use Meguiars but tried this product and liked it better.

To be honest, I haven't used NuFinish since I was a kid. However, NuFinish can be somewhat harsher on some finishes than others.

As for me, I have been using Klasse since 2001 and love it more than NuFinish. Additionally, I can layer more coats of the sealant glaze and then top it off with a wax for impact.

Autoglym's EPP is very nice as well.
