Questions Regarding Waxes

I have looked over your entire web site and have seen just about all the videos you have posted, and I will admit I picked up some nice "tricks" & very good pointers that I will incorporate into my MO. BTW, I am sorta like a detail geek when I get in the mood..:D Thanks..

My question is I noticed that you sell 2 types of wax. The first being Buttery Wax, and the second the Machine Super Wax. As you guys know, waxing versus sealant type of products are like night and day. Waxing is probably a monthly chore down here in South Florida with the sun pounding down on our cars and also with the almost daily rain we get during this time of the year, the wax products just "melt" away, no good really IMHO.. The product I currently use to "finish off my work" & make it shine with some POP, bonds pretty well to the paint and totally protects & "seals" it, if you will, where as I can usually go from about 4-6 months before beading starts to go away (depends on how much rain I would speculate) & I would have to go through the entire "detailing" process starting with claying, polishing, then sealant again.

My question to you is, are your products really a wax, or it is a more high tech solution and more durable than wax? Used down here, (Florida), how long will each product last with the conditions I posted above, days? weeks? months? Finally, of the 2 products, the Machine Super Wax sounds like the superior product, (price wise also by a fin). I already own the Porter Cable machine (great unit for starting detailer) used on your videos, so I am leaning more to that product and is the one that interest me the most at the moment, although, doing by hand is something I also use, (to me can sometimes be quicker than the machine).. So, how long will these products last more or less between applications.. Thanks ..MB
PS: If the answer comes like I hope, I will probably be buying some type of "kit" that have both items.. Oh one more thing, what is the "shelf life" of these two, sitting in a garage shelf..Thanks again..

Midnite, great questions! Correct, we have two waxes. One is formulated for hand use, the other machine. Differences? The Machine Super Wax is a little more durable since it's formulated to use the heat the machine produces - it actually LOVES the sun as it helps the wax bake in and last longer. In the Southern California sun I get about 7 months out of a coat of our Super Wax, about 5 months from a coat of our Buttery Wax.

Tell you what, since your biggest concern deals with Florida specifics, I'd like you to contact our largest dealer in Florida, Richie Carbone. He's HARDCORE Florida and gives me grief about how great it is compared to CA - he reminds me everytime I talk to him.

Here is his contact info:

Thanks for sharing that information, but I wouldn't start rinsing my car from the top to the bottom of the car (as seen in one of your videos), as the dirt from the top of the car should ideally rinse off from a clean surface below. Starting to rinse the car from below is just making the situation harder to get the dirt to come off. Starting rinsing the car from the bottom would just simplify the dirt from the top of the car to come off as it would leave a smoother surface for the dirt to come off.
