Can you tell me how long this products holds up on a vehicle stored outside 24/7 a climate like Florida?


I cant speak for Florida heat year around but in my experience Nu Finish lasted longer..granted nu finish is considered a polish whereas 845 is a wax.

I agree. Per the Turtle Wax shine lock sealant, it advises to top with a wax. I will likely do that. Debating between megs ultimate and collinite..im leaning towards the Collinite for durability and down the road I will use more of a carnauba for shine.

You will be hard pressed to find many waxes with more carnauba content than the Collinite,


In God we trust. All others bring data.

Tried Car Guys Liquid Wax (polymer sealant) that I got on sale through Amazon. Stuff is quite durable...reminds me of Nufinish without feeling like you need to wear a hazmat suit during application. Been topping sealant with Sonax Polymer Net Shield...time will tell.

First wash with foam cannon after application.

Seen some folks use Jescar Powerlock Plus (been wanting to try) and topping off with Collinite 845. Have not tried combo yet.

Nu Finish is not a bad choice but the FK1000 last longer, no black trim issues and it smells better!


This^ FK1000P is the best on the market IMO. Love FK

I went partially through my box of wax & polish. My green can of Dupont #7 polish was rusted through. I was more like 50 yr old. Not sure.

OMG: I used to use that when I was a teenager waxing my Dad's car [early 70s]. And I have seen ads for it in old Motor Trend magazines from the 50s.

Of the ones pictured I believe Collinite 845 is the best. I've used it myself and it has very good longevity.

What others have stated about Finish Kare 1000P is true. It's possibly the best wax out there.
