Since no one responded with any offer - really, none of you use Nu Finish? Anyway, I decided to buy it and to perform some test.
Here it is.
I washed the hood. Three times in order to remove all wax I had applied previously.
Next, I applied on one half Meguiar's Direct NXT Generation® Tech Wax® 2.0
and on the other Nu Finish "The Once-A-Year Car Polish"
Before using them - you have to shake
the bottle several seconds for mixing purposes.
- easy, hand application, it dries out fast
leaving white haze.
- easy, hand application, it does not dry so fast as NF
, and the haze is not so visible as it is with NF
. It does dry fast though. NF
was ready in less than 10 minutes, M
needed next 15 (total less than 30).
External temperature around +15 C (+59 F). A little cloudy day.
These are more personal thoughts...
Look on the next post below - applicators. NF
- you need to simply pour it out, while M
has a nice applicator tip. A good point.
- in both cases is easy. While NF
leaves some white powder (I could not show it on pictures), M
is kind of sticky. Again, done by hand. I used a buff/polish pad from my 10" buffer (separate for each section of course).
I think (again, might be subjective) that NF
was easier to remove... although M did not make any problems at all. To clarify - M
is not sticky, just the residue is more silky (did I misspell it?), like there was some wax in it (actually there is
- well, very hard to compare. My eyes did not see any difference. The surface was pretty much the same on both half's. It is shiny, smooth, BUT my care is silver
. If it was black
, any difference would be seen much easier.
See related pictures below. If you have any questions, comments, feel free to post them.
I will try to update it from time to time, because I want to know (and show) what is a better thing. NF
claims it lasts several months, I want to know if its price (almost 3 times more than NF
) is worth it.
It was done on Sunday, October 25th, 2009 with 17125 miles on ODO. I will apply another layer after 30 days, and see how they survive winter.
As for the pictures.
I had to edit them. They are much more dark than they really are. It was necessary to show haze.
