Favorite spray wax/sealant?
« on: September 25, 2023, 07:09:32 AM »
I donít do a lot of detailing anymore. Seems I only work on work trucks.  Which is what brings this question up.  I didnít want to put a lot of time in to this one for a few reasons.  I wasnít given much time.  It was last second.  Boss said ďsomeone polish the truck tomorrow.  It looks dull.Ē  Um, ok.  I guess I can do that.  Had a coworker wash it.  Big mistake.  Terrible job.  Whatever.  Spent most of the day claying and only had a couple of hours to two step polish and seal.  Reason number two is itís just our box truck (cab only). It sits 90% of the timeÖ next to a row of pine trees, at the entrance to our stone parking lotÖ perfect.  I didnít really document anything because literally my only goal was to make it ďnot dullĒ.  But to wrap it up, I used an old favorite, Optimim OptiSeal because thereís just nothing easier and it lasts a decently long time.  I also really like it on glass.  I came in this morning and hit the truck a second time with optiseal.  Itís been parked inside all weekend. 

But whatís your favorite spray LSP?

Side note, Iím currently working on the glass because the wipers barely even work itís so bad.  If you want to guess how bad the whole truck was, take a look at the clay from just HALF of the drivers door window on the outside.  Just the glass and only half of it and only one door.

If you are just looking for pop, i would consider using Optimum Spray Wax....just spray it, and wipe with MF.   will last 2-3 months.   If you wanted a little more, consider opti seal.   same thing, spray and wipe.   it will last 6 months.   

Sadly I feel so out of the game, i am going back to what I know vs what is new and awesome.   
Thanks for visiting the Cafe, come back often.  There's always something new!

Iím with you there.  I donít know whatís out there anymore or how much anything has changed.  OptiSeal is just hard to beat for ease of use and durability.
