Talking What kind of paint polish/protectant to get?

Hey guys,
I am looking for something to spray and wipe on after I wash and dry my car. It has been waxed and the paint looks great, but I just want something to add to it to polish and protect? My car color is Antique Mica Bronze.

Thanks!!

If you're looking for an easy to use spray on protectant/sealant, then you should look into something like Optimum Opti-Seal or Ultima Paint Guard Plus. They both are very easy to apply, leave a very nice finish, and offer months of protection. As with most sealants though, they are designed to be used after polishing.

If you want a spray on/wipe off product, I'd definitely recommend Blitz spray sealant or optimum car wax. Both are easy to use and you can do the car in probably 15 minutes after drying from a wash. Like TSC17 mentioned, OptiSeal is probably the easiest product out there. Simply spritz the applicator pad and apply in small, circular motions like you would w/ any wax. Then simply allow the product to evaporate! No buffing required. THis is definitely a time saver!
For a polish, you'll want to work it by hand and it'll take a little more work than a spray on, finishing product. Check out poliseal or polish w/ sealant. Polish w/ carnauba is also a nice product.
Heres a few links for you

Thanks Chris! I will check out those products. What should I use to remove grime, I have some light stains from bugs that won't come off with rubbing, I even tried some scratch x, no luck....
