I use spray detailer and wash from Meguiers and waxed with NXT for the 1st time 2 weeks ago. No Problem here and I did put the wax on the Decals! It just made them shinny not Flat Black - Not the worst thing!
What problems did anyone run into with wax on the decals?

I use their wash and detailer religiously. As much as the NXT is probably great stuff, I have to repect the opinion of a detailer that likes the gold class. Ihave a brand new bottle of NXT I plan to use....
What is Zaino exactly? Why does it take so long and why the heck could 6 hours of polishing be worth it if it only lasts 6 months instead of three? I'll try it if there is some polymer paint protecting shell or something it provides.
On my previous intrepid SXT, I detailed it all the time and it looked great and brand new for two years until I traded it in. Even the engine compartment, door jambs and trunk.....but I only waxed it with paste wax once per year with an orbital polisher, and then simply washed with McGuires and detailed with Detailer from McGuires. People loved the mirror finish I always had. I wonder if wax is sometimes over hyped. Anyone stating that their wax beads up water nice must realize that even the worst wax does that, so it is hard to be impressed by that comment. If your was doesn't, check the label, it may not be wax LOLOL.

From what I've heard over at Autopia, NXT is decent product. I've read that it does have flake/dusting issues but for the most part, it shines your ride right up. OTC products like *regular* Megs stuff and Black Magic are superb for their cost. Check out Autogeek if you're really hard up on Megs stuff. Specifically look at their #21, #83 products...they work miracles.

If you want to step your game up a notch or two and kill swirls, scratches and protect your paint for a LONG time, I'd say go with the Zaino system or a Porter Cable with: Optimum Polish, Poorboy's , or Klasse AIO polishes and this sealant, FK 1000P. The polish/sealant you use all depends on what you like and what works with your process.

All things considered, NXT is not even in the same league as Zaino, FinishKare, Klasse, Pinnacle etc. Reason? NXT has fillers and will cover swirls, marring, scratches. The others actually eliminate these as opposed to filling them in. Want to test that? Throw some dawn dish (dawn will strip the NXT and any other oil/ carnuba wax off) soap on your car during your next wash, dry it and park directly in the sun and look at all those spiderwebs/swirls.

In any case, good job, keep it shining!

4DEater - How about this get your finsh to where it looks nice and deep with Zaino, then take a 50/50 Water/Alcohol mix and wipe down part of your hood and see how nice your finish really is.

I got a sample of NXT from a car show. I used it and ended up going out and buying it. I found tho the white haze does not show up right away. I got some on my wing and front spoiler. It took a couple of days to show up. Kinda of annoyed me cause I didnt have anything to clean it up with.
For ease of use I love NXT tho.

I am with you brother. Me and my father we run a car wash and we know alot products when it comes to detailing. NXT version is not as good as they say it is. It has its flaws when it comes down to polishing, not only that, dust is indeed a big issue, because some of my customers has told us so. We are now using the Formula 113 because it's quick, easy and very safe for almost all cars. For my car I use Black Magic because it's very very good. Easy and safe to use. I will post some pictures comparing both very soon for you guys to see for yourselves. Stay tunned........
