The problem is that most OTC products are giving misinformation. There are a lot of products that using the term "polish" in a waxing sense, and they aren't even a polish.

The term polish is an often misapplied description of Non wax or synthetic conditioners.
Polish by definition would have a abrasive quality to it. Wax can become abrasive when dry but abrasives are not a common ingredient in most wax.
Enough polish would were something down and away, while wax can build up harden and yellow. I am not sure polish or any abrasive treatment for your cars paint is a good idea. Paint is basically plastic and even a mild polish will negatively effect the finish.
I think the pure liquid synthetic paint conditioners are the best way to go.

Badmittn, once again, your passion for the subject is obvious, but the posts you're digging up seem to be getting older and older.

Please make an effort to post in CURRENT topics. There'* no reason to dig up older topics. If you have something to say, we prefer you start a new topic, state your case, and refer to the older topics by links if necessary.
