I havn't tried the LG yet, but I am a pretty big fan of the Nano Wax. For what it costs, how quick it goes on, how good it looks..... I am sold on it






untill Tom ( 95SLE ) got me hooked on Zaino, but that is quite a bit more expensive

LG may seem expensive when you buy it, but that can goes a LONG way. It'll last me over a year on both Bonnevilles.

You'll have to strip your current wax before you apply it. LG isn't a wax, it'* a polymer. You can wax OVER it if you want, but not under it. Dawn dishwashing detergent (a couple washes) should strip your wax. Polishing compound shouldn't be necessary, but you might want to do that anyway and/or claybar.

Being a polymer, it'* more likely to hide small surface scratches in the clearcoat than a traditional wax will. It'll also be easier to buff off (by hand). No buffer is necessary. Wait 4 hours between coats, and 'sun baking' will give you a much better finish by the second day. It needs time to cure.

The instructions on the can are very well-written and should get you what you want.

I did a long-term wax test comparing LG to Mequiar'* Gold Class. There'* no comparison:

If you are really after hiding scratches, look for a good glaze. They work the best at filling scratches. Then top with a nice wax for added durability since glazes don't last long on their own.
