    I have used NuFinish at least 15 years and have tried similar products in the price range.Gives good shine and gloss on clear coats. In a 4 season climate,long term protection but doesnt last an entire year as it claims. Water beads nicely at least 4 months with one application.(longer with 2 coats) Also shines/protects chrome ok. Application is easy. Overall process however is time consuming and labor intensive. Must wait an hour for it to dry before buffing off, which requires hard rubbing.On dark colors leaves small specks of polish after initial buffing. Requires more elbow grease to remove them. Not a fancy product but a good product at a good price.

    "Get Nu Finish" they said.
    "It is great" they said.
    The reviews on here were good too. I got this stuff home and it's awful. It's sticky to apply and doesnt apply like a normal wax. I think gummy and sticky is a better statement. When I went to buff it off it left white dusty residue everywhere and was almost impossible to remove. It also wouldn't wipe completely off no matter how hard I buffed. There's swirl marks all over my paint job.
    My paint job isn't crummy. It's shiny. I was just adding protection! And this wasn't my first time waxing a car. I've been doing this for years!

      I used the product on a new paint job after 5 weeks. It was very easy to apply. It dried to a film quickly. It wiped off easily. There was no scrubbing or buffing. The car was washed clean before application.

      I have used this product for several years and find it to be the most effective product - EVER. I have severe RA that effects my hands and shoulders and this is the only product I have found that allows me to properly maintain my 2 cars and sailboat. It applys easily and buffs to a lasting finish with very little effort.

            This product I used yearly on all my vehicles. It does seem to bead water on the surface for close to one year in our harsh winter environment. Applying again in October does great for the winter months.
            Highly recommend.

            My children think I'm a little nuts because I wax my cars every three months. I keep a log to remind me when it's time. This product seems to keep it's protection longer than others that I have tried.

              Comments about Nu Finish Liquid Car Polish (16 oz.):

              I had an old 1987 Fiero that has a Macco paint job with no clear coat on it. The roof, hood, and deck lid oxidized horribly and NuFinish restored some shine to the body panels. This didn't bring it to show room quality, but lets be realistic I was starting with a low quality paint job. All things considered the car looks better then it did. Directions say to do a coat, wait 30 days and do it again for max results. I'm waiting on my 30 days to do a 2nd coat. Bought 2 bottles probably only needed 1.

                        Hello Lou, that's a great question. This Nu Finish Liquid Car Polish has a wax-free formula, which makes it both easier to apply in all temperature and sun conditions and more durable.
