    Post Which wax do you use for shining?

    Lets talk about the quality wax. Which one you use for your bike and how do you rate it.

    I have always used Formula 1 on fuel tank, side covers, and mudguards and it works good.

    Two days ago I bought Maxi Car Wash. Maybe it is not for the bike since the name suggests so, but I am not sure if it will be harmful to the bike or what. Has anyone used it on his car? It comes in plastic bottle in yellow liquid form. According to the shopkeeper, this is better for a shiny surface and easy to use. Instead of applying it after car wash, as done in case of Formula 1 wax, we have to use this while washing the car...put some of the Maxi liquid in the water bucket and dip the cloth in it to apply on the car body.

    wax basically enhances the looks of your vehicle, depending on the type of wax it protects against small scratches and also fills small scratches.

    Imagine applying a vaseline to your arms of lips in cold winter? same is the case with bike's and cars. with waxing you add extra protective layer which acts as a protection against small scratches. Also protect paint from UV rays and etc

    Bro there is a whole thread dedicated to detailing. You may wana check that out

    Let me clear something out here, although you are right on your part, but wax doesnt work that way.

    There are two types of waxes, 1 Carnauba and 2 Synthetic

    Pure carnaubas are made out of naturally occuring ingredients whilst synthetic are man made chemicals.

    Waxes are basically to top off any paint correction you've done on the paint, What you're refering to is not kind of correct, a wax wont protect/prevent against scratches, it would just lock the shine and glaze which is achieved after paint correction so that you could retain it for a longer time.

    There are cleaner/polishing waxes which might take care of swirls but not on an intensive scale.

    So the bottom line is, nothing would prevent scratches, wax, polish, wash, clay bar. You have to prevent scratches yourself.

    I totally agree with you brother..

    Are you referring to this thread :

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bod...tailing-dreams

    I dont have much knowledge in this field. But it does gives protection against scratches (small)

    How To Protect Your Car Paint | Auto Bodywork Spray Paint Protection | Car Resprays

    But still i agree with your point of view.

    It would be great if all of you waxing enthusiasts come join us on our thread which you've mentioned above, tons and tons of knowledge.

    Im always here to help, the link which you quoted has told the entire paint cleaning and preparing process.

    Waxes dont prevent scratches my friend, but you can mask minor swirls with high grade waxes such as the above mentioned Meguiar's.

    @ volverine bro the above mentioned wax is for 2700, not 1000+, this picture is from samialvi's thread, i sourced this wax for him.

    ^ As mentioned above by r1.... Turtule Wax is better for chrome parts like mudguards. You may re-wax after you wash the bike, even if it is after one week of the previous wax.

    Auto glym or meguires usually on my cars, but it'll work just as well on your fenders and tanks.

    ^Thats right. Some people wash the bike with surf, as do the service station people but surf will harm the pain and chrome slowly but steadily so instead use of shampoo is advised.
