6 comments on Ask-A-Pro: What Polish, Sealant, and Wax for a New Car?

  1. Rick Conrad says:

    Todd, I have a 2010 Camaro with the vinyl stripes on the hood and deck lid. Should I avoid getting wax or sealant on the vinyl? Is there a product I should be using on them? Thanks, Rick

    • Rick,

      The only thing you need to be careful of with the vinyl is if you’re using paste wax. This has a tendency of building up and leaving a white residue (with most paste waxes) at the edges of the vinyl or clear bra.

      You can use spray waxes or sealants right over top of it without any issues. Products that are easy to use in these situations are Optimum Car Wax or Opimum Opti-Seal.

      Enjoy that new Camaro!

        Hi Todd,

        If paste wax has a tendency of leaving build up and leaving a white residue, what do you suggest for easy removal of this residue. Please provide an alternative to P21S APC. Some Poorboy product left residue in it’s liquid form and I need to get this off the porous trim on my 2010 GT500.

        Thanks,

        Tom G.

    I just purchased a new Accord and want to prep the car for many years to come. I have Meguire product, the polish, liquid wax, and spray wax. Which should I use? I have not yet washed the car either and normally use the Meguires gold class car wash. Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks.
