Waxing, polishing, sealing, glazes for a white car?

Post by JayW » Thu Apr 18, 2013 1:41 am

In the past I've been use to doing the above things for a red car and making it shine and glimmer with that wet look finish. However with a white car I've been told not to bother with waxes but instead go for sealants instead and some glazes.

What would you recommend for show prepping a white car? Bare in mind it's a brand new car little over a month old.

Thank you

Werkstat Acrylic Prime and Jett ... looks great on white and is dead easy to use.

I've got a white GTI and I've got some pretty good products, gives it a wet look finish

I polish with Meguiars Ultimate polish and put some Poor Boys White Diamond show glaze on the mop too
Wax wise i use Insperied Automotive Prophecy 87, its neon based so it makes for finish really deep and wet. Plus it gives you awesome beads for a good 3 months!

I've always loved the products from the chemical guys, they are really easy to apply and even more easy to get off, i'm very surprised with the is result.
I've been using their factory sealant (which i can't seem to find on the UK website) and wet mirror finish for a while and just recently bought white light hybrid radiant finish but still need to try it.
