I think sealants are better.
I really like the Wolfgang deep gloss paint sealant. It is VERY easy to use. Lasts way longer then a wax. Just make sure what ever you use you prep the paint before application. It will last longer.
I’m very intrigued by coatings. I may try one. Those can give a year or two of protection if property maintained.
I put a clear bra on our charcoal 14’ fusion (half hood) and it’s done great (80k Miles)
chemical guys have good stuff but you can get lost in their branding and hype.
i haven’t used their sealant, but I’d recommend these 2 below

Yeah I had 150 stashed around the tank of @CharlieBeaU's former 14 lsv and easily could've done another 150. Getting it in is easy... getting it out was a bit of a knuckle shredder.

I almost think that's a good thing. IMHO that gen VLX needs bow weight for everything. Even skiing. You could plug in 2-300# of lead, under the seats for every day use. Put a 650 sumo for on top for those special occasions and you'd have a nice place to store the bag when not in use along with some other stuff. Since i watched @Stevo trying to stash lead around the front tank, i no longer want to add lead up front. Maybe do @Fmans #overthetop bow gunnel ballast. Hmmm?
Older gen boats with bow ballast have a hard bow tank with vertical side walls, it is much easier stashing lead in the voids. My 17 25lsv has tapered side walls to match the contour of the Hull shape.
I've seen a lot of threads on boat detailing but I've searched and I have not seen anything car specific. If I missed it please feel free to throw a link in here. This isn't tow rig specific but yesterday I was fortunate enough to buy (lease) my first brand new car and now I am looking for detailing products! It's a black 2017 Fusion and as excited as I am to have a new car, I can't say I am looking forward to maintaining a black car. In college I was a porter for a Ford dealer so I have history with the "shadow black" that Ford has been putting on cars the last couple years and it's very tough to get clean, let alone keep it clean. I told myself I would never get the shadow black but here I am... I don't need anything to make it look like its never left the showroom, just a good wax/sealant to fight against the snowy and salty Michigan winters and tire dressing. Anybody have recommendations of their favorite products and applicators? I've looked through amazon and it seems chemical guys has some products with good reviews and reasonable prices. Thanks!
Thoughts on a wax vs. sealant?
