Nu Finish. Optical waxes are good for auto shows and that's about
all. Trick with Nu Finish: don't rub, leave the polish alone until
COMPLETELY dry, about 1/2 hour (most people don't let Nu Finish dry
sufficiently and try to rub it off prematurely). Tough as nails against sun
and elements. The fewer times you "rub" your car's finish .. . the fewer the
scratches and rub marks. Read C.U.'s Consumer Reports on auto wax &
polishes. A fool and his/her money are soon parted.

Gee, and I was edging toward Prestone. But, with these testimonials, looks
like it might be Nu-Finish.

what would you suggest for smoothing out swirls???
the kind you get when a girlfriend tries to erase a
some tar with a plastic brillo. i already tried a coat
of turtle wax with a buffer...nice shine, but swirls remain.
thoughts?
