    i decided to buy a can of paste of this Nufinish once a year polish they call it. but im wondering if i should wax it after? or is this the kinda that doesnt need to be waxed after because it already puts a protective coating?

    if anyone's used this before, howd it go? what were your opinions about it?

    i don't like the quality of that wax it will loose its protection after about 6 months and a handful of washes, if your looking for a good wax the 3m waxes will give the best shine and protection

    I personally like the nufinish. I generally use it twice a year, but I dont have a lot of experience with other waxes besides turtle wax so I cant compare it to 3m or any other brands.

    No you would not need to wax it after using nufinish.
    Overall It is not a very good product and there are much better waxes available that go on easier, come off easier and last longer and look better. I have used it long ago when it first came out. If you go to any of the autodetailing forums the consensus is it is a poorly performing and poorly regarded product.
    If you want lasting protection I would recommend Klasse All in One and Klasse Sealant Glaze. These two combined give the best protection and shine and last longer than Nufinish. And that would be 4-6 months depending on your environment. And they don't stink like nufinish.
    Another very good long lasting wax is Finish Kare 1000P which does a great job protecting your paint, lasts very long and goes on/off easy. Collinite 845 is another great easy on/off long lasting wax that creates a great shine and many autogeeks love and use.
    If you are looking for cheap inexpensive decent over the counter wax that you can get at Wally world or auto parts stores that gives 2-3 months protection try Meguir's . They make ok products.

    i used the meguir's ultimate compound liquid it restored the color and took out those spider web looking scratches, then used the NXT generation wax by them and it came out awesome, i used the mothers power paintball it works great and it only took maybe an hr or 2 to do

    Turtle wax ice synthetic spray wax works good for keeping that shine.Just go around and spray and wipe. After a good hand waxing.
    And you can use it on the windows like rain-x,plus it dont turn you trim white. Several uses per bottle.

    i use lucas spray speed wax and it works better than the turtle wax ice spray and the lucas smells like pepermint:mdr:

    I've had very good luck with "3M Fill & Glaze" on light "swirls". It is a very light compound, but sure leaves a great finish. Good luck!

    I'd recommend you clay the paint, then polish, then wax.
    Also got to autogeek and ask these questions there on their forums. Also read product reviews at detailing websites like autogeek and others. They have product reviews from detailers and you will narrow down which product you want to try.
    I can't recommend a good polish for swirl marks as I don't allow my paint to get them. But the folks at autogeek will get you a good polish to lift those swirl marks as best as can be attained. Make sure you get one that does what you want. ie a QUALITY Polish.
    Good Luck.
