What's best to use on a everyday work truck for protection against jobsite dust and the occasional mud. My typical carnauba wax works ok but doesnt last very long and seems to lose its bead within 1 month. Nano?

Thanks.

I used Nu Finish 40 years ago! I think it came on the market when clear coats began from the factory.

I’ve been using this for some time now and am impressed with how it’s working. Cars and boat.

Don’t laugh, it’s cheap and it works for what you want.
I think everyone had that in their shop at one time or another lol. I'll check it out, only thing I remember it was a bitch to remove!? Can work it very small batches though. Thanks!

You use that as the actual base wax or a maintainer? Looks like it may be both? I use Meguiars Mist Spray in the maroon bottle to maintain and it kicks ass. Thank you!

This is all I use and it seems to work fine as a base/maintainer for my stuff.

Claybar and Motyers Carnauba cleaner wax. Do it twice a year and looks good the whole time.

I use collinite 845 insulator wax for my base and produxa for a maintainer in between. Works great and easy for me. Use it on all my vehicles, travel trailer and the boat.

I’ve used this since 1988: I’ve tried over 20 brands against it and never had any keep a shine longer.
Great for daily drivers and work trucks

If you don't intend to get it professionally ceramic coated, I'd also recommend Collinite 845. Some times it can be found at Harbor Freight.
