Nu Finish anyone?

So our jeeps are all atleast 11 years old. I've seen Nu finish but never tried it, anyone get the as seen on tv results, I was thinking of trying this instead of waxing this time.

I used it on my camry which has a dull finish for some reason.. I used my arms to do most of it and then switched to a buffer later... The parts the buffer was used on still shiny.. So when it is nice out I am going to redo it using the buffer.. But it works if thats what you want to know..

I've used NuFinish, as well as Mothers and McGuiers which are also good products IMO. Can't say when I used NuFinish I was taken aback by the tremendous results as seen on TV though

I've always used mcguires products and typically that's what I wash and wax with. I was going to give it a try but if the result is the same I'll just stick with mcguires wax.

I never saw it on TV, I got a bottle some were cheap and used it on old Mercedes diesel I had already tried to wax. The NuFinish worked great. I remember it was in an orange bottle with black writing. Big block letters.

Lol... I think they were the pioneers of infomercials. They pulled some alleged old clunker from a junkyard and waxed it with NuFinish... then ran it through the car wash "99xs and the water still beads!" Don't know why that's trapped in my head I'm a plethora of useless information and jingles

I think I remember that commercial. My Benz had pretty much come out of the junk yard and it worked on it.

I as well used Nu Finish once on an old car that had not been cared for. I also kept the bottle for a long time, as it truly didn't magically restore old paint. Although a buffer would have helped, but the car eventually went to the junkyard anyway.

IMHO, the best thing to do with a new car is to wax it once a year from the start. Of course some products are better than others, as far as how long the product protects. Personally, I use Zaino, which includes to first use a clay bar, which is a great step to do, before applying three different products, which is at least an all day project.

The results of Zaino, just because I like shiny objects...

Ya I was reminded of it when I was at Costco and some guy was trying to sell a car wash product that didn't require water and supposedly gave a show room shine.

I tried a bottle of that, it cleaned fine but the shine doesn't last long, nothing like wax. But if is 5 degrees outside and you want to "wash you car" it works well enough.
