wax to be difficult to remove. And P21S has done it! The result is a wax
that provides incredible hardness, gloss enhancement and protection of
number one grade carnauba without the drudgery. In fact, it is as easy to
use as any wax you have ever worked with! Fully compatible with the

System One products were developed in a Southern California restoration shop
by Tom Horvath, who became known for his award-winning work on Exotics
and Classics. The X-3 Cutting Polish replaces the two other products for
polishing, and the glaze that Tom previously used. No glaze is required with X3 because this polish does not use diminishing abrasives that leave scratches
that need glaze to fill them. They also have a great spray wax that can be
turned into a detailer, and a tire dressing that leaves a natural-looking satin
finish. Their car and motorcycle kits come with a DVD to show you how to
use them. Their used in professional shops but are totally safe for the hobbyist.
