Question Eagle One Gel Wax

Do you like this? There is a coupon for a free bottle (w/rebate of course) in my latest issue of Road & Track...

I did the same last year when they ran that promotion. i thought the wax was pretty good. I'm no professional detailer, but i have used a wide range of waxes and cleaning supplies. i thought for free why not try it. i used it when i detailed my buddies 85 Mustang, it came out really sharp and it was easy to apply and remove. give it a shot and let us know what ya think, what colors the vehicle(s) you're gonna use it on?

Zman, thanks for the reply. I will be using on my '10 Ranger in gunmetal gray. Is the Eagle Gel Wax better for certain colors?

nah not in my opinion, i was just going to say if you are going to use it on black try Turtle Waxes Black Box. I use it once a month and so does my brother on his 04 Audi, excellent product. but its just for black paint.

I've always used Mothers for anything I cared about, but "free"is good and I suppose it wont hurt anything.

I though the Eagle one gel wax is for the textured plastic trim pieces.

And yes the black box is pretty impressive.
But I'd use Meguiar's cleaner wax followed up with Meguiar's tech or ultimate for complete coverage.
