Toyoguard wax

Is toyogaurd the best stuff for my 2011 camry. Anybody else have any recommendations? I am looking for something that applies easy too.

I've never used Toyoguard wax so I can't give an opinion about it.

I did try this new product from ArmorAll...I was impressed. Very easy to apply and gives a good shine too. I'm waiting to see how durable it is now. Here's a link to the demo about it.

^^Please do keep us updated... It reminds me slightly of Turtle Wax ICE so I hope the durability is better than that

I'll be sure too!

I used ICE before and still have 3/4's of a bottle. This Armor All is different not near as greasy like.
I plan on using AA on my other vehicles too.

Agreed on how greasy the ICE is. It's good for covering swirls and scratches for all of 3 days. After a rain, or the next wash, it's completely gone. Used my bottle maybe 3-4 times and in my opinion it's junk. I'm not a big Armor-All fan except their tire gel, but I will give this product a chance if it works well.

I was skeptical at first, but have used nothing but Klasse on my camry since new

http://www.autogeek.net/klasse.html

My car is now 6 years old, never garaged, and the paint still looks like new. I am sold. Klasse is easy as hell to apply too.

I usally do the entire car over 3 nights after work. bumpers, hood, roof, trunk on night 1, passenger side on night 2 and drivers on night 3. It seems like little work spreading it out this way.

Was not impressed with Ice. Have tried a number of waxes/polishes over the years and always come back to either Mothers or Meguiars liquid cleaner waxes. They apply easily, they remove surface contaminants and leave a decent shine. My cars are always garaged but they still get waxed 3 times a year.

^Great place to research...


Best setup for around $200-250--- Porter Cable 7424, Meguiars red cutting and yellow polishing pads, meguiars black finishing pad, meguiars 105 compound, 205 polish, and 21 synthetic sealant(these are their professional products, not otc)

Its a lil pricey, but you'll be able to make it look better than brand new..

I really like the synthetic sealant-21 on black cars. it makes the paint look wet.

Shouldn't this be in the detailing section...

As far as synthetic waxes go, I prefer Meguiars NXT tech wax. At least you can see it dry, unlike ICE. Comes off just as easy.

Although for a longer lasting wax, i use a paste carnuba (takes longer to remove, and sucks if the car gets heated) or meguiars liquid gold.

IMO, the best products for detailing are bought online, and not over the counter.

That's what I use as a base, it works pretty damn good. I'll do a layer of that every four months or so along with at least one coat of Klasse Sealant Glaze and then wax every other week....

With all due respect, for the life of me I can't figure out the difference between a bottle of Meguiars polish purchased from Auto Zone and the SAME polish purchased from an on line seller.
Even professional grade products can be purchased from specialty supply, brick and mortar stores. I'm confused.
Even the "best" is subjective, as i know professional detailers that would argue the point - or else there would ONLY be one "best" brand.

I think what he meant by that statement was: products that you don't find over the counter, but are primarily sold exclusively online. (more private label).

However, if I'm not mistaken, there are a few places like 'Walmart' that have manufacturers sell them a product at a cut throat price. As a result, these companies manufacture a watered down formula for just Walmart for price controls. Meaning, the consumer will pay less for it, but for a slightly dilluted product.

You are mistaken, at least as far as Mothers products go. All products that Mothers sells to WalMart are the very same high-quality formulas that our longtime customers expect and demand. Compare the packaging, labeling and contents on any of our products -- they are the same if you buy it online, at a major auto parts chain, a local family-owned retailer or at WalMart.
