I had low hopes for this wax considering both of my bottles of liquid ceramic wax were absolute duds. Boy am I happy that I was wrong about this one! It went on super smooth and came off just as easily. Luckily I got hit with a rainstorm just shortly after it got a chance to cure on my paint for about a day or 2. The rain was pretty intense and the water just beaded up like crazy! I can't wait to wash it tomorrow to see if the hydrophobics will hold up......that'll be one of the remaining 2 tests. Have to see if it'll hold up to basic detergents & if it lasts anywhere near the claimed duration (approx 1 year). Considering this product evidently worked after application unlike the previous 2 waxes, my hopes are higher now. So far so good, great job Jax Wax!
