    Shelf life

    First off how is everyone on AG! Its been sometime since I have posted.

    Going to go back in detail mode here. Wanted to see what shelf life of wax is?

    I have BFMS, BFBI, WF, and Pinnacle ones. I believe I bought these between 2012 and 2013.

    Also what about BFWD and BF Total Polish AIO.

    Really excited to get both the cars back to "off the factory floor before humans hand touch it finish"

    Depends on how they were kept (environment) and how well closed.

    Paste waxes don't go bad. Some of the liquid sealants with high water content seem to sometimes thin out and there's obviously something going on there.

    Hi Bigbull2984. Long time no see! You're solely responsible for my addiction to Pinnacle Crystal Clear Glass Cleaner & rolled edge microfibers.

    IIRC, you used to own a white Acura as a dd? You mentioned about repainting it or something. Maybe I got it mixed up.

    Anyhow, I have an 8 yr old Ultimate Compound that still gets use to this day. I guess it depends on the manufacturer. Some guarantee a year after the seal is broken.

    My very favorite 4* UPP is 4 years old, and not a sign of slowing down. I don't keep my products it in a refrigerator (like many do). All are either in the cupboard or under the sink, with temp fluctuating between low 40's to high 90's through out the year.

    How's it going man! The pinnacle glass cleaner is still a staple in my house cleaning products and car.

    The old Acura got sold when my wife got the MDX, it was a third extra car we had. One of the best car i have owned.
