This is NOT a pitch for anyone's wax product. I just want to share how I came to use a product that I found after purchasing several products (often ignoring them and just spending more $)

Then an incident happened. In short, at a car show of a club member's shinny car, I asked another member who knew the owner of the very sharp car; "Did Lowell just get his car painted? It always looks so fresh and new?" The response was; "NO. You need to get Bullet Polish and use it. It will amaze you."

So I went on the web and found the product, read up on it and the process, and spent $60.

So then, having been pleased with the product and the ease of use, the next comment by a fellow club member was the best endorsement I could imagine. That club member had a black 40 Ford convertible and we went to several SW US car shows around Colorado and Arizona together. (And to put his comments in perspective, only a couple of times did he not receive a recognition trophy for his car.) Well in the meantime, I started using the new to me polish on my black Solstice Coupe, which with just over 60K miles had some issues and spots in the paint, characteristic for a car with that many miles. Well one day at a car show, my friend with the 40 Ford asked me if I had had my Coupe painted? And that comment to me was the best comment anyone could say, and coming from a member that had a car everyone raved about, he was a person who understood good paint on a show car.

That convinced me I would never need to change. And being in my more senior years, I can still do what is necessary to keep doing that job myself.

Although photos can't do just to seeing a finish in the flesh, this favorite photo of mine was taken right after I did the first complete Bullet Polish effort on the Sols Coupe. I am satisfied with what this polish process does for my cars.

Where did you get it from? It's been a couple of years since I've waxed and polished a car, I believe I last used Maguire's 3 step. I'm always open to new suggestions, and it definitely sounds like you've had good results.

There is a difference between wax and polish. It should be qualified. And remember, it is not the paint u r applying the product to....it is the clear coat. One last comment...the color of your car will make all the difference...silver pearl, which I possess, will never give u a great shine...and of course, no swirl marks. Just saying because when using a product, it is important to use the correct applicate

Good old green can Turtle Wax.
Easy on, easy off.
There’s a reason why it’s still around after all these years .
Clay bar, wax and a good spray detailer.

The best (by far) spray wax/detailer that I have used is 3M Quick Wax.
It's very easy to use, looks great, and gives great protection between waxes.

It was in the post and the name is BULLET POLISH in the Denver, CO area. Specically, I think it is Castle Rock, CO. Just go to bulletpolish.com.

I believe polish functions differently than wax. Polish restores your paint luster. You should follow up with a protectant...either wax or sealant of some kind. Synthetic sealants last longer than carnauba wax though.

Regardless of brand or product marketing, detailing takes hard work. That's no magic bullet.
