Zymol liquid blue is very good, easy on, easy off. 2nd only to Zaino, which is far more money.

here is the skinny--
i have used all of the over the counter waxes except for zaino show polish and zymol is the best, longest lasting on the market. most waxes look good for a few weeks, but the zymol lasts twice as long as blackmagic, mcguiers, or any othe the others.
its about 14$, but it will last a long time, and since it takes a while to wax a truck, use something good so you dont have to do it as often.
paint will last 10x longer if waxed a least 4 times a year , helps keep the paint from drying out and saves your clear coat, which protects the paint from wearing out.


check out this link on a regular joes first hand experiance....let me know what you think Bill.

the following link speaks for itself!

I know I need to wax ....... obviously have not done it yet and I've had the truck for over a year...... Really nervous about causing swirls etc in the black paint.

Got a quote from a professional.... $400

i think there's no way i would pay that much for wax when black magic does awesom IMHO. all i do is wax twice a year and wash it every weekend or two. after i dry it i go over it with the spray detailer and it look's down right sexy for a truck.
