What is your favorite brand of wax? I was looking at trying one of these newer ones; Turtle Wax ICE, Mothers FX Syn Wax or Meguair's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0. Any advice?

Stay the hell away from all 3 of those.
Go to your local body shop supply, spend the money, and get a silicone wax.
The last thing you want on your fresh paint job is a shitty wax like all the above.
Try 3M Waxes, anything they don't sell at a parts store or Wal-Mart is what you want my friend.
Good luck!

I like Meguires High Tech yellow. Its pretty easy to use, holds up well, and has carnuba.

I tried NXT, hated it. It didn't last for even one wash. Haven't tried the others you mentioned.

Zymol is good stuff, I have used that for years. I have also used Meguiar's gold class with good results. JayRyan also has opinions on some good waxes I know also, I can't remember what he uses, but IIRC he mail orders if from some detail supply house. :question: Please don't tell me you are thinking of waxing that car already after is has just been painted :question:

Well if the painter said you could, then you should be fine, but I would check with him on what you use. Then if there are any problems then you can blame him!
