Thumbs up Re: Mothers California Gold Pure Carnauba Wax (Paste)

Welcome to the neighborhood!

I don't think there's a better Clay Bar kit available. I know "loyal" users of lots of product lines that use Mother's Clay Bar instead of "their" product. It's that good!

When it comes to wax ... I'm a liquid guy. Someone else will have to jump in to offer a first-hand testimonial or pictures.

But I do know one old-school detailer who swears by Mother's Carnauba Paste and applies it by hand - - literally!! No application pad. He says that by using his hand he can feel the paint and make sure he's getting thin even coverage. To each his own, I guess.

I tell you there is nothing better than the clay bar kit. Just don't drop it. I use the liquid wax but I am sure you will get the same results with the paste. I have actually thought about switching to the paste myself. Here are some pics of after a detail job using those products.

Talking about percentages of any ingredient gets a bit tricky because they can be very misleading, and we don't like to mislead our customers.

The percent of carnauba in either the paste or the liquid is at the optimum point.

Discussed here before in another thread, our chemist said:

"... years of research and development go into determining the optimum percentage of carnauba wax to use. To use less would be ineffective, to use more would be wasteful. Please do not get caught up in the hype about carnauba wax percentages....what does not go on the car...just ends up on the rag. There is a point where it just becomes marketing hype."

For what it's worth, our California Gold Pure Carnauba Wax has enjoyed a shining reputation.

I hope this helps.

Mother's Clay Bar; Mother's Polish; Mother's Carnauba Cleaner Wax (paste); Mother's Back to Black

I've been a big liquid guy for a while for the ease of application and buffing. But, after using the paste for the first time in a long time, I don't think I'll go back. The swirls are now a distant memory.






I have the full resolution pictures if anyone cares to see them.

That really turned out well, I don't think I would change a thing if I were you.
Actually it looks showroom.

Good photos also.

Thanks! I'm pretty darn happy with it. I think I'm going to add a clear coat sealer though.

Here's a pic I took the other day. I applied some CG Pure Carnauba in the morning on a clean surface, and took the photo in the evening.

I was surprised by how wet it looked!
