In Reply to: RE: I walk into Pep boys, Autozone, O'reilley, Walmart, which car wax do I walk out with? posted by Green Lantern on June 11, 2017 at 13:57:00
I can't recall the car but when a friends Mom got a new one in the late 50s she went by the Fire Station and asked what wax they used to get the Engines so shiny. Answer: Kerosene.
I wonder if todays paint would take to that?
Very old school. This was done back when cars were painted with enamel and before a clear top coat was used. The paint would go dull and "chalk".
It would make the car shiny, but with zero paint protection. Basically used on fleets, like Highway Patrol units.
I doubt anyone would recommend this method today.
Years back (maybe 25 years ago) I was looking at cars on a Sunday, and there at one dealer some guys were washing/wiping down all the cars with kerosene.
So I would guess it is still done.
