So, as title states, this is about spray wax.
I have been searching awhile for one that really impresses me with ease of use and looks.
Have used Turtle Wax Ice, Meguires, Chemical Brothers, Mckees 37, Flitz, Torque, and West Coast Customs.
Out of the above, I would say I was impressed with Mckees 37 the most,..... Until today.
Tim ( @Hellcatcfp ) asked me about Beadmaker.
So, of course, I had to try it.
Absolutely blown away by the look it gives, and ease of use.
FYI:
If you go online and order, PAY ATTENTION to shipping / pricing info.

Very nice Hunter. Probably not the most durable as a stand alone, but a great topper (between washes) for any coating. Did you notice it looked better after it had 6 hours or so of cure time? Sickness is amazing. It is my drying aid/after wash go to.

I don't like the look of ceramic coatings. It gives the car a durable, high gloss shine... but it's a top shine. You can build a lot of depth with waxes that makes the car really sit apart from the crowd. For us military folks, it's the difference between a set of elbow greased spit shined shoes and a pair of patent leather shoes. If you put two cars side-by-side, one each with ceramic and the other a show quality wax treatment, you can really tell the difference.

The big downside though is upkeep. I tend to spend about 6 hours every 2 months hand waxing. I only use arms and elbows. No orbitals.

More on topic, I have used beadmaker, it's good stuff... but it's a bit expeeeeeensive. I personally use Meguiar's tech wax 2.0 as a base double coat, followed by 2 ultra light coats of CG Butter Wax, topped off with a spray on Showtime Shine from Cali Gold. The 4 coats of wax are stacked like this: Base coats go on 8 hours apart. Wait overnight. Put on the top coats lightly, about 4 hours apart. Buff. Then use Showtime Shine once as a sealant and then every other week or so.

Having a tick of OCD I used to obsess over this stuff and honestly my time became more valuable. Once I learned about ceramic, even the DIY stuff, I never looked back. I think I now only actually wash the Hellcat twice a year, the ceramic just makes everything basically blow off in the wind and anything that doesn't wipes off easy with the ECH20 detailer/waterless car wash that also beefs up the ceramic: https://amzn.to/3fJYQHy

I’m digging this gel lately from Chemical Guys, its their Hydroslick Intense Gloss Ceramic Coating Hyperwax. Easy on and off and super slick. I did 2 coats a day apart. So far so good.

This car was originally PCP, but changed at last minute "back" to TorRed.

Meguiars Quick Wax. Put it on while simultaneously drying the car. Dries quick, wipe it off...done.

Been using it for years.
