I use Aquapel and will never use RainX again. Just Like Crewmax808 said, I rarely have to use windshield wipers either.

This is genius ~ why didn't I think of that after more than 50 years of washing and waxing vehicles.
I waxed my first windshield today on the wife's RDX.

The NuFinish is still going strong with no sticking at all? I think I might have a trip to the store coming on!..

I've been driving and 'showing' sports cars for over 35 years and have been very successful at the shows. I was rarely satisfied with how clean the windshields were, until I watched these two Chris Fix videos' -now it is like the windshields are not even there:



He has a ton of good info in his video's...check the one about cleaning engines, if you liked those other two.

The million dollar question is what lasts longer on the windshield. I’d guess an oil based product like NuFinish would, but I’ve never compared it for resilience against a natural wax. Seems our prep is similar. I didn’t claybar.

I've been nufinishing my entire vehicles for years...all windows, mirrors, everything (except for rubber or plastics) - people don't normally do this?

I gather not. A fair amount go showroom super polish and wax on us... NuFinish isn’t up to that task. As far as glass and headlights, no. I’ve used it on paint annually for years. It was the Scotty Kilmer channel that directed my use towards headlights and glass.

It’s a tough call, but I’d have to hand it to NuFinish. Lol. Thanks for the followup!
