Angelwax The fifth element or zymol destiny.
Both can be bought in small tester pots which brings the cost down and gives you enough for 3-4 applications.
These 2 are my favourite waxes, they both give an amazing depth to the gloss and water behaviour is also excellent.

What colour is the car?

nbray67 03-02-2018 12:14 PM

AF Illusion.

Still an old classic that produces exactly what your after Sean.

A little goes a long long way.

Imran has a brand new pot in the Sales section that he MAY take a cheeky offer on as it's been there a while.

mikster 03-02-2018 12:54 PM

Pretty much any wax will do if u do a great prep

Cheaper end of the market - Soft99 King of Gloss
(You want gloss, this is the king of it lol)

More expensive - BMD Sirius
Beauty of a wax, and they do sample sizes if you want to try a sample size before taking the big plunge

M&K do a samples kit that might be worth a look, comes with liquids as well, you just choose what wax. My mate raves about their stuff, got my own for Xmas but the Scottish weather is trolling me so I haven't used it yet.

In all seriousness tho it is a beast of a product, it applies for miles and removes so easily.

So much bang for the buck

Added a pic of my juke last summer with some KOG on it https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...06cbb12560.jpg

I highly recommend BMD Sirius as the glossiest wax (check my avatar) however if you would like to try another glossy wax from BMD in their new enthusiast range check out show stopper. £10 for 30ml sample.

BMD'S Sirius

For me if I want glossy I always reach for ODK Glamour, although for a budget option as others have already said would be a coat soft99 fusso

BaileyA3 03-02-2018 06:40 PM

Odk glamour easily the best I have used for a glossy wet look.

Itís a fantastic wax, scent is amazing too, must apply as thin as possible tho.

My favourite is Farecla G3 Super Gloss paste wax. I highly rate it for its ease of use and excellent finish. Also it is good value for money as it can be bought for less than £20 on Ebay.

Supernatural Wax looks great on all colours you can try panel pot first .

I am relatively new but tried OCD Nebula as my first introduction to a show wax, the results blew me away. I am sure other show waxes do similar things but as it is a first for me I was amazed at what a dedicated wax can do.

http://slowandlow.co.uk/upload/2017/...4-8ff4bd67.jpg

I know Matt has stopped making wax for now but its worth making a note if it pops up in the classifieds or he starts producing again.

I dont actually know what to go for when it runs out so its a good thread for me to keep an eye on.

Mikej857 04-02-2018 10:40 PM

For me it's a toss up between obsession wax luminous or evolution both are great waxes, luminous will with out doubt tick all the gloss boxes with ease but evolution will add a little more durability

Other options are hbsauce Sith or waxtub 141

Shame OCD no longer make waxes as nebula would have done the job with ease

Yes, Sean, used it on a Cherry Red Fiesta and really impressed with it gave a lovely mirror like reflection and great flake pop

Are you limited to just waxes mate? If you're going to the effort of full machine polishing stages then you'd get better durability and more gloss by going for a coating in my opinion.
Nanolex Si3d is reasonably easy to apply (especially if you only add one coat) and the levels of gloss, especially on white are insane. It's chea**** (about £35 a bottle which will do two small cars) and I've seen it last upwards of 14 months on a show car and 11+ on my own daily (before some lovely folk broke into my house and stole it...)
Still beading just as well, and the gloss after a decent wash was still stunning. I actually credit the levels of gloss as to helping the magpie thief choose the car to steal :D

I've used it on 4 or 5 cars now and would definitely recommend it, providing you have an indoor space to apply it and leave it for 24 hours (which I'm assuming you do if you are going to perform multiple stages of machine polishing)

dchapman88 12-02-2018 03:36 PM

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=402928

I'll just leave that here.
In a conversation about glossy waxes, it really does deserve a mention.
With the right prep I don't see why that wouldn't give you a knockout finish.

It's the first time I've used anything from Sam's either.
And for the price and how little you need to apply it's really good bang for buck.
Gave a real nice gloss
