    Hey all! Can any of you share which wax you would recommend for non garaged vehicles in hotter climates?

    I only use Meguiar’s. Pick any of their waxes or currently I use the ceramic hybrid wax and have been very impressed.

    I’ve used all of the high waxes, polishes, and the new ceramics. Meguiars hybrid ceramic is, hands down, the best! My expensive Blackfire products now sit in my detail cabinet like yesterday’s news. TIP: before using the ceramic product, make sure to clay the car if needed, otherwise you seal over the contamination and oxidation in the paint. Apply exactly as Meguiars recommends. It’s easy, and definitely holds up when the car is outside 24/7. https://www.amazon.com/MEGUIARS-G19...id=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sprefix=Megui,aps,205&sr=8-9

    As far as spray waxes go, nothing beats this for ease of use and durability. Very solid product.

    Curiously... I've used Nufinish too. It s petroleum-based and does last awhile.
    Its scoffed and laughed at by car show enthusiasts but I drive a truck, not a Ferrari.
    Big trucks get bird crap on then.. And tree sap. Nufinish may not polish worth a damn but it certainly protects paint. I apply every 6 months.

    Meguiars is used for fine scratches, etc. I use a commercial car wash once every 7-10 days out in California

    My favorite (besides the 250.00 Waxaddict Vortex) is Shine Supply Signature Shine. It’s still somewhat expensive, but I’ve gotten many applications out of the container. Probably used it 8-10 times, and I’m nowhere near halfway through the container.

    I’ve read a lot of good things about Nufinish. I hear it has great durability.
