I'm sure this has been covered a million times, I used the Search feature and still couldn't find anything. I will want to give my '73 a good waxing before the rains come ( if they ever do come). Back in the day it was Turtle Wax but what do you guys and gals recommend?
Thanks a million and one

i would personaly use meguiars products... they have a few choices in selection.. you can get a one step application, or the 3 step app, or even a more complicated one.. id recomend the 3 step though..

they are all dark red bottles, and are numbered.
1) is the paint cleaner,
2) is the polish,
3) is the final deep shine...


and if you want the ultimate shine, use their mirror glaze process... a few more steps, but kick butt shine!

the process takes a little longer, but its worth it.

For a car like yours I'd go with Meguiar's like hurley mentioned. If you just want a quick shine and some protection, Turtle Wax is still as good as ever. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the tips. I've never heard of that brand. Wonder if it's easy to find here in So. Cal....maybe Pep Boys will have it

thanks again,

Every big box parts store carries meguiars. (checker/shucks.kragrn, orielly, pep boys, autozone, etc).

Mother's is very good too. As is Turtle wax. A friend of mine turned me on to Eagle One's new nanowax. Seems to work pretty well too,a d since it was a free bottle I figure I'll use it up and see how well it holds up.

Eagle one!  At Autozone.  It is a Nano Wax I believe.

I like Flitz. They have a line up of stuff to wash, wax and polish out.

I only know of Flitz for doing chrome.  I didn't know they have a wax?  If they do, then they are probably the best.  German product.

Yeah, Flitz has got a good line of products. There's some good wax, with canubra, and there's speed wax for touch ups (and it is speedy too!) and of course the regular polish for chrome and such. I used it on my Sonny and it really made that boy shine!

i agree,
they also make  "quick wax spray" that you can use in between waxing, the stuff is awsome

I have most of meguiars polishes including the spray on fast polish
which I sprayed on My beetle once. forgot about it for a few hours and it took Me days of polishing using all their products to get the stuff off....
I think its probably spray and wipe... lol

I also use their Mirror glaze finish...

I had a small sample sachet of a UK polish in a white bottle
cannot remember what it was, but it was the best I've seen...

To revive this a bit. I'm completely sold on Eagle One stuff now after trying the nanowax. I still like Mother's wheel polish and I won't knock Meguiars either, they're good. However, for me it's Eagle One inside and out.
