Default Testing out some new products

So I got my shipment of Migliore Products today, and had to test them out. I got a couple cans of the Migliore Competizione Blend Wax as well as their tire glaze and wheel seal. I have been using their products for a while and have been very happy. The wax is a little better then their old Competizione. I had to warm it up a bit since it was super cold from shipment. But it went on like butter and was very easy to remove.

If you have never used these higher carnuaba content waxes... they are really a different then most off the shelf waxes and sealants. They don't dry to a haze, they stay clear...also when removed you can actually feel them on your paint and I think that's what my favorite part of them is. They are usually pretty expensive though. The other down side is that since they do dry clear it is very easy to apply too much, and when too much is applied at once, the wax can be difficult to remove and will just smudge everywhere. That's why it's always better to do 2 thin coats. The tire glaze leaves a nice natural satin finish, and the wheel seal is like a wax for your wheels, but a little more durable then a standard wax.

My silver truck doesn't have much luster in the paint as it is, and there was no sun out, but here's a few pics of the stuff, it really gave a nice shine overall and that "wet" look:


After 45 min of drying (this is my 2nd coat):


Some over all shots:




and some close ups:





Thanks for looking, and let me know if you have any questions. I'm going to do a black Dodge Nitro tomorrow with this wax so maybe I'll post a couple pics of a black car with this stuff on...

Amazing work, but what happened to the bed of the truck? Or is that just a crazy reflection?
