so about a week ago, someone wrote on my friends truck with dirt, which happened to scratch the words YOU SUCK and EDDIE BLOWS on his truck. so we went to this professional detailer place, and after some work he got it off, and then he told my friend that he was gonna wax it, so he pulls out this Aerosol can, and it does an amazing job, and I asked him if I can buy some of that stuff off of him, but he said no, and he also said that none of his customers have had any luck getting this stuff, so I start doing some research, and I come up with this: http://www.speedbead.com/, so i ordered 2 cans of that along with a couple other things to make it six tubes so I would pay $5.00 a can. well, I used it the other day and it is very easy to use, and it leaves my car feeling the smoothest it has ever been. I love it, so I thought I'd let everyone know about it.

yea, and their trim shine is nice also, it is in a aerosol can as well, and it leaves a nice clean look, kinda shiny, but not greasy like armorall, the same with their tire shine, but that goes quick

I've already placed that $50 master box on my christmas list. I used the invisible glass like two years ago and since then i've tried a number of their products and been pleased with all the results.

Nice to know the trim shine works cause I got a Vision TSI with that plastic cladding on the bottom and my paint is perfect and shiny and wanted to do something to the plastic but like you said armorall ect.. i think looks stupid and greasy.

Yep it's acleaner wax made by Stoner (who make invisible glass). I got a catalog awhile back and ordered a case of invisible glass and they gave me a 4-pack for free which included:
invisible glass
trim shine
speed bead
and their tire shine.

They also make an even better wax called 'bead max'. Just remember that it's a cleaner wax (contains some abrasives).

You can check out their web site www.detailingdirect.com

If you can get them to send you a catalog the shipping is free west of the Mississippi.

I just found this thread. I have just used ArmorAll ultra shine wipes (Red Container). You are right it does feel greasy but it leaves no white powder and can be used on black trim as well as paint. I used a microfiber towel to dry it and the shine is really good. We will have to see how well it holds up. The whole car took me 20 minutes.

I hear SpeedBead is fine, but there's loads of spray waxes out there, just most of them aren't aerosol cans. My current fav is Duragloss Aquawax. I hear Eagle One Wax-As-U-Dry isn't bad either. You can usually find it at Carquest, among other places.

What bugs me is just like any other spray wax, there's very little durability compared to a "real" liquid or paste wax. That sounds like a cop-out for a pro detailer to use that unless he was topping it over a traditional wax. You're paying the guy good money to do a wax that's gonna wear off in days or a couple weeks most??? He should be the one doing a real wax job, then you can touch it up with the easy stuff. Oh yeah, he's yanking your chain if he's trying to claim that a Stoner's product is some kind of boutique stuff that's not for "regular" consumers. I've seen the stuff in auto parts stores and in a kit at Sam's Club. It's made for the retail market.

This guy's taking the lazy way out with a low-durability product and he's trying to claim the OTC stuff is some secret formula. Time to find a new detailer.

well, the past few days it has been raining, and the water just falls off the car. it is amazing, and it is real liquid wax, because after you spray it on, you still have to use a towel or applicator to rub it in, then it hardens to a haze, then you buff it off, it is just easier to apply, but when it comes to getting it off, it is just as hard.
