    wax on wax off-gctid372882

    so im waxin the dolphin over here in the windy city, in the 3 past years i have used some sort of a cleaner wax followed by the Starbright polish with ptef. this year i chose 3m finess it and started the starbrite. I had some pure carnuba wax from meguires that i pulled out for the hell of it and did my back transom area with it after the finess it . In my opinion the carnuba wax gave a superior shine and finish feel compared to the Starbrite, which i have sworn by in the past. Who here uses the starbrite and who uses carnuba wax as a final coat.? has anyone used both and come to a similar conclusion ? I have been told the carnuba will yellow and not last as long but i have to say it sure looks good .Anyone?

    I use canuba wax on my car, truck and will be using it on the boat. I started using it on the boats I worked on in the service. I also think that it can give more shine that synthetic waxes, but it takes more work to buff it out. You should be able to buff all the swirles out of the wax, which is what gives that mirror finish.

        From what I have researched and there have been a lot of posts here about detailing;it is the polish that gives it the shine and the wax protects the shine so one should polish and then seal and then wax without carnuba

          I have had really great luck with using Meguiar's #67 for a clean up and light compounding on the Makita rotary buffer with a wool pad. I then follow that with Starbrite polish with PTEF. I then stop. The Starbrite is meant to be a protectant with the PTEF(Teflon). It yields nice shine; I've done this for the past couple years and I've been happy.

            Todd, me too . i have used the Starbright as a final and have been very happy until the othe rnight when i used the carnuba for the hell of it . Im wondering since Starbright is labled as a polish if i could use the Starbright as my polish then go over it with the carnuba. Im going to do some trial and error tomorro and post some results.
