    Review-Ultima Acrylic Spray Wax as drying aid

    I was lucky enough to be chosen to test this product out in return for an honest review. Thanks Ray!

    It finally stopped raining here, and I got settled in here at college but have been busy with meetings and events the past several days. However, after a bbq last night I was able to swing over to the coin wash just off campus and do a rinseless wash with Wolfgang Uber and test this product out.

    The car was incredibly dirty after about 2 weeks, several hundred miles of driving, and some nasty roads/driving conditions. 2 weeks ago I did a full decon, Mckee`s 37 Jeweling wax on the majority of the car, Wolfgang Uber Finishing glaze 3.0 on the roof, trunk, and rear bumper and coated those three panels with PBL V2.

    The wash: I pressure washed the whole car for 3 minutes and 4 seconds(weird amount of time, I know)in the coin wash stall and then proceeded to do a RW on the entire body. I did the entire car using the GDWM and Cobra Supreme 530 towels. I then proceeded to go around the car with the spray wax and two Cobra Supreme 530 towels.

    I put a couple of sprays on my towel, and then misted one to three sprays per panel on the still wet surface. I believe this was the first time I`ve ever used a spray wax as a drying aid(if I use one I usually use detail spray)and wasn`t really expecting to like it.

    I was, however, pleasantly surprised! It was incredibly easy to use, and I only had very minor streaking problems on the hood. I had doubts about really loving this product because of how much I like Blackfire Midnight Sun Carnauba Spray Wax, but I ended up really enjoying this spray wax! I don`t know if it added any shine/depth/gloss since the car was just polished and waxed with Mckee`s 37 Jeweling wax, and coated with PBL V2, but the car definitely looked really awesome when I was done.

    I can also report that the spray wax played nicely on the coated panels. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone and everyone when Autopia gets some more in stock.

    I don`t have any before pictures as I was worried about the sun going down before I finished, but did get some afters.



    Rockin` my Autopia bag out here on campus!

    Hope you enjoyed the pics, and I hope that my review helps anyone deciding on whether to get this product or not! Thanks again to Ray for the opportunity to try this out!

    Nice! I`ve been also trying to find some free time to get my review in. Was hoping to have this weekend free when a client wanted a last minute single stage polish and coating.

    Thanks for the review! I was curious about this as a drying aid. Finished up my griots spray on wax this morning. I cant say enough about using a wax as a drying aid. It has prolonged my LSP to new levels. Good to know about the ultima.

    Next time I`m home I`ll have to try my BF spray wax as a drying aid to compare. I highly recommend both products though. However, the Ultima is noticeably slicker
