I used to use "Slip Stream" aircraft carnuba on a 356 many years ago, don't know if it's still available. It would lose its initial shine sooner that others but would bead up & shed water much longer than other waxes. More difficult than others to buff off the dried wax.

That was before the newer polymer waxes became popular so don't know if it would compete today. Looking ahead, I avoid waxes with silicon because it always causes fits when doing body work & repainting. Look for a wax which gives good UV protection to save the clear coat. Also, don't wash the car with liquid dish soap. It can attack the paint over time.

What wax has everyone found to work the best?
