I'm sure Rod and Custom Show Gloss is a great product and gives you excellent results but I have never heard in the detailing world of a product that can last that long yet, The most durable product line around is Zaino, which applied properly has given people protection for most of the year.
I think I will post up: History of Protective Coatings. This will educate most of you on waxes, polishes and polymers. I've spent most of my life in the Protective Coatings and Automotive Industry. Education in the fields of waxes, polishes and polymers is essential when choosing a product to apply to a vehicle.
Zaino is NOT the most durable product on the market and it DOES NOT last most of the year! Zaino is a WAX.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Just because you have no heard of Rod & Custom in your "detailing world", it lasts much longer than any product on the market. No other product can claim to do what Rod & Custom can do. Not even Zaino. I'd like to know where you got your information on the "detailing world" as you are very incorrect!!!
I am not going to get into a "p*ssing" match over what an individual choses to apply to their vehicle. I know what works and what doesn't. And before one states such factual information, an individual should be well informed, knowledgeable and educated.
I posted a new thread: HISTORY OF PROTECTIVE COATINGS. Hopefully, this will educate individuals on protective coatings for their vehicles.

I totally agree with the individual that painted your vehicle when he said:
NOT TO EVER WAX IT!
He is right! Waxes and most polishes contain clay soil
, which is an abrasive. What is clay coil
??? It's just what it says it is -- DIRT
! Why would anyone want to put dirt on their car? And, since most waxes and polishes contain abrasives, such as clay soil, they will scratch your vehicle. Where do you think you get swirl marks from? It's from abrasives in the wax or polish.
That's why I do not use a wax or a polish. I do not use anything with any type of abrasive. And I use a product that has the highest UV Block protectant on the market.
However, I do believe that new paint should be protected by a urethane polymer, which is basically a clear coat, that has UV Block protectant in it. Why would anyone spend all that money to have their vehicle painted, and then not protect it from oxidation, sun fade, bugs, corrosion, water spotting, etc.? Again, that is why I use the product I do. To me, it's the best on the market and I only have to apply it about every 18 to 24 months. Rod & Custom Show Gloss Creme does all that and much more. And, before any of my vehicles that I've just painted ever see daylight, I apply Rod & Custom as I want the finish to be protected.
