Virgil, thanks for posting this, I am sure this will be helpful a lot people, quick question for you Doc, I have been thinking about trying the Novus products, how many bodies can the size of the bottles do?

Oh my, Jonathan, I've had these bottles since the beginning of time, certainly for the last 4 years. I use the stuff to clean the windshield on my motorcycle too. I've done dozens of cars and still haven't put a dent on them.

Thank you Doc, is it better using the Novus products Vs say turtle wax products?, I currently use turtle wax rubbing and polish

I'm confused, Virg. Why did you wax and then do the Novus? And then wax again?

It's my OCD, Jim. I've been doing it like this for a long time. I don't know, a little extra added protection. Harry pointed that out too. ZYMOL is a wonderful was an it is really all one needs, but I like the tripple kill. I like repetitive tasks. Hope that makes some sense.
