For years I have used Zymol to wax my cars, including the wee machines. I have no complaints about Zymol but I was wondering what others use.

The cars that I have painted myself all get a finish coat of Future. Automotive waxes often contain some abrasive that will remove a little paint if you need to apply it often. Future is actually not a wax, it was developed as a finish for vinyl flooring. What you might use to finish a car would partly depend on how it would be handled. A car that is intended mostly for static display might be a different case from one that will be raced a lot.

I'm more of leave it alone.... '70's and below always look odd, to me, if they are too shiny/prefect...
At my track Shelf Queens are just that and the other 95% of my cars are racers/drivers, with all the
imperfections that entails.

....I'm also to lazy to wax cars 1:1 or slots. :auto-layrubber:
Slot on, Dudes.........1320 and counting.....
