    Saw a 4runner today under the lights at a gas station and it looked wet, super shiny and wet. What kind of product have you guys used that gives that super deep shiny wet look?
    Glaze before sealant?
    Glaze after?
    Some kind of wax?

    Let's here and see!!

    The first and original "Wet Look" products are from Brother's Research, called Dura Gloss. Their two part Polish and Aquawax are what I've used since my 2010 was new. I'm still getting comments and questions about how my paint looks.

    Correcting, polishing, “ jeweling” and LSP. You may or may not have to do a wipe down prior to the LSP. That will be the majority of your optics.

    Car Pro Essence is one that is mentioned to give you that extra pop. I’m sure there are others out there too. A quick easy read...
    https://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-Pro/ask-a-pro-what-is-jeweling-the-paint/

    I would say CQuartz Ti02 or Crystal Serum Light would be a good start.

    Dura Gloss is an under rated line. The Aqua Wax is a great product and I have recommended it to folks.

    Sadly, the only place I see it anymore is on Autogeek and Detailed Image carries the Aqua Wax. I use to see it in various places...

    I've called 'em with questions years ago. One of the brother's Wives answered the phone and put her husband (one of the Chemists) on the phone to speak to me. We talked like we knew each other all our lives!:oldglory:

    Modesta Glass coating, this thing stays shiny even when it’s dirty. If you could see the truck in person when I took this pic you’d see how dirty it was lol. The stuff is amazing but not cheap. 47BB2383-F054-4A16-9571-A73D48DEA133.jpg

    I think I'll try a bottle of the aquawax. It's cheap enough for a trial run. Even the gallon jugs aren't bad to buy if I end up liking it

    I use meguires 2.0 paint sealant and turtle wax wax spray wax.when I bought the truck I used meguires polish and a flex buffer and did a light buff job then switched to the 2.0 paint sealant and then meguires gold class wax.It is butter smooth and repels dirt great!
