Best Wax/Polish???

Anyone have a preference or know which is the best polish. just curious due to bike parts being mostly plastic or fiberglass.
Want to remove a few clear coat blemish, and or scratches or swirls...
also do you have a chrome polsih pref.

any clearcoat polish is fine, though some prefer one brand over the other..
Plastic or fiberglass doesnt matter. Its the finish on the top of it that does..

And I used mothers chrome polish for polishing the frame on the old ZX9 . Just because it was on sale at the time..hehehe

Honda Spray wax if you can find it, or the new replacement, which is really the original.

Depends if your goal is to scrub,polish, or wax. Meguiars does have all three as seen above. I usually go that route unless some showtime spay is all that is needed.

Zymol hands down the best wax. Might be a little expensive but worth it.
Really any Zymol product is going to be awesome!
