    Carnauba wax and Synthetic waxes both have advantages and disadvantages I'm familiar with, but do you know if you can use one on top of the other? Seems I read nothing contra indicated, but also remember someone telling me you could only go with one or the other. Any advice/input appreciated.

    You can top a carnauba wax over a synthetic wax (sealant).

    Jolly. I have seen zaino used and the smoothness is incredible. Two fellow hellcat brothers drove the Carlisle. Both took a damp micro fiver towel and wipes right off

    I top my sealant with Meguiars No. 26 paste when I'm feelin frisky. It adds some pop, but unless you have a dark color I wouldn't waste my time.

    I do know that a Carnauba soap for hand washing does an amazing job and will minimize your need for waxing. I prefer Carnauba soap and follow with Carnauba Wax couple times a year.

    I've used Griot's Garage brand in the Synthetic for durability and the best in show carnauba for depth and brilliance.

    I just got a tin of Griot's Best of Show wax and was impressed with it. Easy on and off with a great shine.

    I had good luck with nxt when I had a silver car with a lot of metal flake in the paint. I would think it might work well with the HC's pearl white or silver
