5 Star Shine

Anyne used this wax treatment, they say it lasts 5 years + and seems pretty good to me if its true, US patent on it too. anyhow anyone use this on any car with good results, I have lots of scratches on my truck and I am looking to get them out and add what would seem to me as a second clear coat with this kit

any wax out there do this? (add scratch resistance) so that sticks and twigs,tree branches, etc. are not damaging my thin paint :cry:

Do zaino products add thickness and protectiveness to our ever so thin paint job

No "wax" will last longer than 6 months... much less 5 years. Acrylics last the longest.

I tried the Blue Coral "AutoFom" on my '91 Escort and it ruined the paint. The stuff was basically Mop-and-Glo and looked like crap. I tried removing it with the usual wax and grease cutters... I tried everything short of acetone and MEK. Nothing would take the stuff off.

I tried this last year for the heck of it and to check claims....well one year later and it still looks pretty good!....I am not a fantatic and only washed the truck twice with a power wand....and most stuff came right off. The frequent rains early in the season keep most things off and it keep beading water. It won't give you this deep deep wet shine that most see with Zaino etc but if you don;t have the time to baby your truck I think it does a decent job....no wax or applied material will protect very well against sticks branches and scratches of that sort....obviously the ticker and harder the coating the "more" protection it will provide but dont expect anything to stop "trail rash" that well.....so all in all for 1yrs protection and limited cleaning I was satisfied with 5S. All I can say is try it if you want but don't believe this 5yr crap!...like rlockyer said 6months-1yr max on anthing really....less if you constantly wash.

I've been using Zaino for years. It by far last longer than anything I've ever used. It will last a year, easy.

1. Like everyone else says, 5yrs, NO! Longest lasting for me with frequent washes is Rejex(6mons). And belive me, i have alot of waxes to try.
2. Just waxing will not take out scratches. You need a seperate polish to do this with a seperate polish. Nor will wax prevent scratches. Nor will it add a 2nd clear coat.
3. My suggestion would be to save your $ and go to target. Get some SratchX, for removing the scratches(5-10 bucks). Then look around for some NXT paste wax. Will also help with the scratches and swirls. Will last around 2-3 months. Now this is just a "local" suggestion.
4. My internet suggestion would be to go to autopia.org to find out all you need to know about long lasting waxes and sealants.


Hope this isnt to overwhelming. Its good to care for and wax your truck. It will look alot better and look better longer with care. Dont fall to the dark side of those people who dont wash their cars. It's easy. Anymore ?'s P.M. me.

Thumbs up Newer Kid on the Block to watch out for!

Hey guys, I know that this is an older post, but I just had to share with you. There is a new product out on the market that just plainly puts every single wax out there to shame. It's called "Glare" and I just picked some up today from a good friend of mine who own's a detail shop here in Hawai'i. Basically it contains no polymers, silicones, or carnauba of any sort because they have this thing called glassplexin which actually bonds to the paint itself which forms a sort of glass protectant that won't crack like acrylic would in the case of an accident or what not.

a recent car show here in the islands this past weekend featured some cars that had glare on top of them and it's amazing. The polish is even being used by airplanes and helicopters to help cut down on fuel costs and to help reduce drag up in the air and stuff. Check out their website www.autopolish.net to read more about this stuff

I've got a couple of scratches :cry: on my '05 DC that i picked up in June that I will try to remove with the glare product. I will take pics to show you folks if it works or not. K well i'm off to get to work before the sun goes down!

*As a note to the moderators on here, this post isn't meant to solicit in anyway, but is meant to inform my fellow members on here about what types of products are out there!

Aloha,
Kaleo
