Thumbs up Auto Glym wax

Normally I always use Mequiers. However Scott (Dixie_Boysles) came across this at walmart and it was on clearance for $10.00. Normally sales for around $40.00.

Scott was able to get me one also. I tried it out and it is pretty freaking awesome. I would not use it again unless I could find it my self for around $15 dollars.

It will probably last about 7-10 waxes depending on how much you use when you apply it.

Here is was you normally get. The packages Scott got were missing the towels.





When you are applying the wax. You have to have the applicator moist. Which is pretty easy. Just keep a dish of water near by drop it in and then ring it out. Mine stayed pretty moist the whole time. I would assume if it was hotter out it would not have.



It goes on really smooth and it comes off really easy. You are suppose to let it sit for 10-15 minutes before removing.

When you take it off. You rub your fingers across the paint and it feels as if you just clay bared the vehicle.

I waxed it on Saturday and it rained today. I noticed once going out to the truck the beading of rain water was a lot different then normal. I left 1 are unwaxed on the tonneau cover. I had read online if the vehicle got wet from rain. When you drove it would come right off and look as if you just waxed it.

One section close to the cab and closest to the camera is the unwaxed area.


Here are some other pictures I took when I got home. Notice no water left on the truck and it looks like it was just washed and waxed. This was after driving 10 miles home in the rain and hitting a few puddles.







One other area where the water was along the side coming off very easy.

The price is the only thing keeping me from it. Had Scott not found another for 10 bucks there is no way I would have used it.

Only thing I have found locally by them is the hand applicator. Which I would suggest the applicators it comes with are small and make your hand cramp FAST

Whew! that's really sharp man. That aint bad at all. I wonder how it would do on black paint? That's the best shine you can get for $10 bucks. I'm leaning towards Meguiar's Yellow Tech wax and mirror glaze line. It's either this or the gold class for me from now on. Zymol was great, but it tends to not want to come off after they've changed the formula.

Looks like you all got a lot available.

Only reason it is so cheap is because all the boxes are missing the towel it is suppose to come with.
