Paint Protectant Recommendation

MH has very shiny clearcoat and thinking about using Meguiar's Paint Protectant. Any comments or recommendations are appreciated. Thanks

any good wax

I used Nu finish once a year wax/protectant with good results. I would think Meguiars would be just as good if not better.

I only use Rejex and Rejex wash. Check out the web site. Easy on easy off and I apply once a year.

If your clear coat is in good shape and you want a shine that lasts try Mequiars NXT GEN. Easy to apply and easy to wipe off without the chaulky dust. You can find it at Walmart or just about anywhere.

Paint protection

Waxes burn off in the sun. Have used Nu Finish on various products for 35yrs. Including tractors and ATVs. Still look new. NuFinish is a polymer and doesn't break down under the sun. This year I have decided to try WashWaxAll which is also a polymer and every one I have talked to who has used it REALLY likes it and the ease of use. I will not use it as a dry wash but put it on after a good wet wash. It has UV protection and can be put on Diamond Shield and windshield. Makes life easier for me.

If you're considering a sealant, I recommend #2180 Ultra Polymer Sealant from Finish Kare. Here's a link to the product's Web page. I found it excellent at removing light surface oxidation and restoring shine. Elbow grease is needed. I use it on my cars now. I found no additional waxing is needed to keep the shine- just wash now and then.

Meguires NXT has been replaced by ultimate liquid wax which is a polymer so very long lasting and dries almost clear so no worries about getting it on the trim or in the grain of plastics. Goes on and off very easy and lasts at least 6 months.

There are several spray on / wipe off products out there that provide a nice shine and have UV protection. I’m long past the “wax on / wax off” process.

First thing first , make sure its clean of water spots. Otherwise you'll just put that wax/ sealant on top of the water spots and they will really show then.

I'm waiting for it to stay clear long enough then I'm going to buff the front end and seal it with CQartz , the coach part will buff out along with all the windows then use either Meguires ultimate liquid wax or another product called Reload over the buffed areas and all the windows too.

Researched to death and ultimate liquid wax came up more than anything else.
Figure just about any wax will work.

I liked ultimate liquid wax because it isn't a wax and you can get it on plastic trim with no staining. I decided to actually put it on the black trim.

So far, with the MH parked in the back yard all winter, it doesn't even look dirty.
