Gave my Libra it's first wax of the year and my Zymol has run out.

Before buying another bottle can anyone recommend anything else?

Eeeerr...  To be honest I never waxed mine until now.... 

Should I?  Smile

 

Zymol is the stuff I need?

Bye,

Waxes contain ultraviolet blockers that slow down fading of the gelcoat, good ones do anyway.
I've used Zymol since someone recommended it here and it seems to work.

That was a while ago though so I thought there might be a new kid on the block.

What are your plans for the Libra this year?

Hi Craig,

For sometime now I have been using "Harley" carnuba wax and find it very good. It is easy to use, gives a very deep shine and seems to last quite well. However not sure if it contains any blockers?

Happy polishing

In dreary wales it does nothing but rain or be overcast so i shouldn't have any issues of fading Laughing out loud

My car seems to be spending its time cuddling a car cover in my garage because of this poxy weather anyways!

Interesting subject though never waxed mine yet.

After a bit of googling the Harley wax seems quite popular but it seems not to contain any blockers which rules it out for me.

Finally bought some Autoglym Super Resin Polish.

The Libra now has a nice deep shine, let's see how long it lasts!
