Default Help..Someone painted landscapes on my cars

Sorry it was just the FX Synwax and Mothers California Gold Synwax

Used Fx on White Mazda and Sea Glass Prius..California on Blue Honda and Teal Scion.

Ok so a couple things....Both products are fantastic and very easy to use. I do it all by hand. I'm 61 and had a heart attack last Super Bowl Sunday. I didn't do all four cars at once if that was what you were thinking! Don't like the smell of the Fx though.
I wasn't that pleased with the results on the white Mazda. Not the wax fault. First white car i ever owned. I know we wax our cars to protect them from harm () but the white just seems to lack any punch as shown by the failure to collect any reflected images. Car does look great though. Guess i'm just not used to white.

One other thing..Think after all the time Mothers has been making wax they could come up with something that goes on and dries in a color other than white. I read recently that white just took over has the most popular color...Just sayin!

Thank's for all the info gained on the Forum!

P.S.... I wax under a small tree for shade. The hood of the Prius was in direct sun when FX was applied and remove. No problems what so ever. I wouldn't hesitate to wax in sun if i had to.

First off great title to your thread. You did a great job on both cars.

I'm an owner of a white car. You will not see the dramatic difference in white that you see with a dark colored car. The advantage of white is that when it is clean it is very bright. With white you want that glossy look to it.

This is a good article on white paint
http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/...eaches-us.html

As an example, I literally spent weeks on my 02 Camaro with a DA polisher and a compound and polish. This is my garage queen. You can see how well the paint reflects and how wet the paint looks. I'm giving you an idea that white looks awesome when clean even if your eye's can't distinguish it. In my opinion it's just as hard to maintain a white car as it is a dark car.



You can see my daily in the reflection of the rear quarter panel.

Thanks Guz...the Camaro looks great. You are right the Mazda definitely looks bright and clean. And today driving up I did see a pretty good reflection of my neighbors house.

Glad you are starting to see a difference. You will appreciate a white car the longer you own it. I did not realize that it looks like there is some metal flake in the paint. If it is, it must sparkle under the bright sun.
