Hello all I’m looking for advice on a good wax to use on my Nova? I’m sure this has been covered somewhere. I’m open to anything pretty green on the car waxing, a guy at work is giving me a buffer machine thingy
thanks in advance

I've always liked Mother's Synthetic. Goes on easy, comes off easy and seems to last a long time.
I just had my Nova painted by my local shop and the owner advised me to just use glaze on it. He said since it's a nice day car, there's no need for a cleaning agent, and glaze will keep a finer polish and not build up. He also advised not to wash it unless it gets really dirty. Just a wet sponge to wipe off any grime, dust with a CA duster, and the glaze.

I've always used the classics available at my local auto parts stores (mothers, etc) but I'd do some research online. There are several new companies who are great that don't get all the attention (adams).

I always recommend polishing after using a clay bar, as you will probably introduce fine scratches to the paint. You can use a quick detailer as lubricant for the clay, or wash the car and soap each panel again, using the soapy water as a lubricant. They are easy, and make a big difference on a car that is around contaminants (overspray, outdoor buildup, iron/brake dust, road tar residue sometimes), but if it's a newer paint job or always kept indoors it might not be a huge difference.
