    Looking for an after wash topper spray

    Hey y'all, I'm looking for suggestions for an after wash topper spray that will add gloss, slickness, and a "between-wash" type protection enhancement. I enjoy waxing my cars a couple of times throughout the year, so this would be something I'd use after each wash except for the washes I plan to apply wax. I used to use detail spray for this, then switched to Bead Maker. Bead Maker is decent, especially for adding gloss, but it really lacks in protection. I'd like something as easy to put on, but has a bit more protection. I'm willing to try some products, so I'm pretty open to everyone's suggestions. I typically use Adam's car shampoo and P&S brake buster in my wash routines, just in case that matters in your experience.

    Sounds like 3D Bead it up is perfect for you. I have been really enjoying this product. It’s protection is truly top notch even as a stand also. Can be used as a drying aid also!!!

    Or maybe their new 3-1 spray?

    So many choices in this category of product. I liked Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax, but others like the Griots 3-1, and Blackfire SiO2 Spray seem interesting too.

    Optimum Car Wax and DuraGloss AquaWax are some pretty tried and true products.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Well, I'll add Turtle Wax Hybrid Solution Wet Wax to the mix. This product is new and was overshadowed by the Ceramic Spray but rest assured, this product WILL impress you with all of your needs statedLooking for an after wash topper sprayLooking for an after wash topper sprayLooking for an after wash topper spray

    I haven’t heard of 3D Bead. I’ll have to check that one out. Do you believe it plays well topping over waxes, like Jescar Power Lock or Adam’s paint sealant?
