Just wondering if anyone else has any results to report on any of the products that I posted above or any other product.

This may be heresy,but...

Okay, I have been a loyal user of Walbernize on our '02 A/S and reasonably happy with the application and results. But recently I tried using Eagle One Nanowax and was pretty much blown away. On the roadside of our rig, we had encountered some low hanging tree branches that left superficial scratches. Nothing I had tried removed or covered them. After using Nanowax, they are totally gone...not even the slightest hint. I had used this product on our cars and was impressed as well. The secret is the fine polishing agents and waxes are all nanometer sized molecules. This allows the it to lay down a much smoother and thinner layer of wax than anything previously. Also, the fact that Eagle One includes a microfiber cloth for final polishing which removes and and ALL the excess. This product does not leave the dreaded white residue of many waxes (paste or liquid). I wound up doing the whole trailer and the results were outstanding. I have tried the stuff on fine scratches in glass and surprisingly it works there as well and does NOT leave a haze or film. It is amazing on plastic scratches such as the front window rock shield. This makes me think it might be a solution for highly polished vintage A/Ss. Not terribly expensive at $10 a bottle, so maybe someone out there with a polished rig might try a little somewhere and report back as to the results.

I'll take a look around for it. Can you tell us where to buy it?

Eagle One Nanowax

John,
I found mine at AutoZone. It has been selling out at lots of places, so you may have to look around. Eagle One sells several different polishes and waxes but the one you want is Nanowax.

I tried using Meguiars cleaner/wax, seems ok but a bugger to work with. The cleaning property works too well! Seems to be holding up, but swirl marks were present when first applied. I haven't washed it lately to see if they are still there. I saw an advertisement for the Nanowax and wondered, guess I'll have to give that a try.

Jabba,
I was amazed at the total lack of swirl marks and how Nanowax fills all the minor inperfections leaving a glassy smooth surface. I might add that I modified the application process slightly. The included microfiber cloth is about 1ft sq so on something as big as an A/S, if will fill up while removing the excess product (after it hazes over). What I did was to get a few large, pure cotton towels and use those to removed the initial excess and then use the microfiber cloth to finish and polish. Worked MUCH better. BTW, you can purchase additional microfiber cloth towels at most better auto parts stores. I had a large one already, but using my modified process, the smaller, included cloth was all I needed to do the entire A/S. ALso, this stuff goes a LONG way. It is a liquid and I have done our tow vehicle (truck), my vette, and the A/S and still have about 1/3 bottle left. You only need to put on a small amount as gobbing it on only means more to removed after it hazes over.

dtbw,

Thanks for the info, I might run out and buy some this weekend.

The Meguiar's would load the cloth on the first pass applying it. Would probably work better after wiping with mineral spirits or something first.
