So I recently got rid of some cars that were shabby and neglected and got some with paint that is in good condition. I'm driving a 2006 Volvo S40; a few dents here and there but the clear coat is shiny and no rust anywhere.
I'd like to keep the paint looking good. The car is parked out in the sun every day, so something that will protect the clearcoat from UV damage is my top priority, I guess. It's not a show car, and I don't want to spend a crazy amount of time on it. I just want to take care of the finish and keep it looking good for several years to come. Our other cars are a similar story.
I had been using NuFinish and it's OK I guess. The durability doesn't seem to be awesome, and it's not super-easy to apply. The way it marks up black trim isn't great. The price is good and it's easy to find.
I used some Turtle Wax Seal n Shine on our family van and it was really easy to apply. The beading is excellent so far - not sure if it really protects the paint as well as more traditional waxes and sealers, though. It seems too easy...?
What should I go with...? I'm looking for easy to apply, lasts a long time, will protect the clear coat, and prefer less expensive and not hard to find in stores.
