    I’m sure this has been posted before but which dressing have you guys found that looks wet and doesn’t sling?

    I was using “coverAll” but it’s an aerosol spray and even in the garage, I would find little dots all over the paint and would have to wipe her down 2-3 times before it subsided

    Wax addict but I think they change the formula so I don’t know if it’s better or not now.

    I also use wax addict. I've only used the new formula once or twice but didn't notice much difference vs. the old one.

    Good to know! Luckily I’ve got 3 1/2 bottles left LOL. But when the time comes I’m happy to hear it’s the same stuff.

    Gotcha. Still good times out here but a lot has changed since you’ve been, I’m guessing

    From what I've heard (no experience) that any tire shine you put on looks great for a little bit....but after that the dust and dirt gets attravatt to it and it makes the wheel look dirty? Anyone experience that?

    Yeah every time I go it looks different. I still love it out there though. I wouldn’t mind retiring there someday. My buddies have a couple places at the beachcomber on the island, right next to site 6. I think I haven’t been in five years. You know, now that I got a family LOL. I have been up to Parker a few times recently. That place hasn’t changed much.

    Not nearly enough room here!
    1012180846.jpg My favorite is Meguiar's Hot Shine in the spray cans. After spraying a good even coat on, I let it dry, then wipe it down to get any build-up off. Never slings for me, when I can let it dry long enough.

    Waxaddict if applied properly, will not sling, but it’s not high gloss. It lasts a good while. It looks really great in my opinion, but you said you want a wet look. Waxaddict does not give you that.

    My wife and daughters do prefer the glossy wet look. For them, I use Meguair’s Tire Gel. It’s a great product. Lasts a long time, and doesn’t sling as long as you don’t over apply it. It’s available pretty much everywhere.
