    2. Is there anything it shouldn't be applied to? I am thinking of the typical issue of wax turning rubber white/hazy.
    I don't forsee it being available in a different form. This product is designed & recommended for use on paint, so it is not recommended to get it onto surfaces other than paint, but with that being said, I have applied it to various smooth & glossy trim with no issues.

    Absolutely. Just like you would with our traditional liquid & paste waxes, you can maintain with any of our Spray Waxes like D156 Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax, Ultimate Quik Wax, etc.

    Great write-up and article Nick! That R8 looks beautiful!

    Can you use a foam applicator pad instead of a microfiber towel to apply Fast Finish? That way less product gets absorbed?

    Thanks Marc! I have not tried applying it with a foam applicator like our W0004 Soft Foam Applicators but I watched my boss Mike Pennington apply it to his Tahoe the other day with a foam applicator pad and it worked just fine. He did say that when initially spreading it did drag a little bit, but once it was spread it glided fine. So that is what we found when applying it with foam

    I applied it to about half of a 35' RV, 2 motorcycles, and a scooter with a foam applicator. Worked well for me!

    Re: Using Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish

    Ok so i understand you can use the fast finish as a last step product and if you do use a wax under the fast finish then give the wax time to cure. But i was wondering if the fast finish would be able to bond correctly if there is a wax layer on the car? I was wanting to use this new black wax i got for my black car and i want to use the ultimate fast finish as well but idk if the wax should go on the car first or if the UFF should? I know with coatings, you should apply to a clean wax free and sealant free surface to assure max bonding ability. I guess all i want to know is how i should apply my new black paste wax and this UFF together? Wax then UFF? Or UFF then wax?

    Re: Using Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish

    I've enjoyed my trials with Ultimate Fast Finish over the last couple of weeks. Applied to several of my regular customers cars so I could get their ongoing feedback, and also to my sons to keep up with longevity myself (even though he's away at school). As has been described, application is quite easy. I'm old school so it's hard for me to believe something that quick and easy is going to outlast my other traditional options. But I'm willing to learn something new! I am a little puzzled as to why a microfiber towel was given as the best applicator tool. It's next to impossible NOT to have some product get on nearby trim or glass, if it really matters. My next application I'll try a square, microfiber covered, foam pad.

    End result is a definite thumbs up though! And I don't see any difference in gloss or depth of reflection as compared to Meg's #21 or #20.

    Re: Using Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish

    If FF is applied over another LSP (Wax or Sealant) does this diminish the durability of the FF?

    Based on our testing, applying your favorite coat of liquid or paste wax first, and then applying Ultimate Fast Finish, does not affect the durability. In fact, the product was actually designed to be applied this way if the users wishes to do so (or by itself).

    Hi Rhnos,

    Yes, you can apply Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish after applying our Ultimate Wax. If you were to apply the products in this way, we would recommend applying Ultimate Wax, letting it dry, wiping it off, and then waiting 12 - 24 hours for the Ultimate Wax to fully cure. If there is any dust on the finish after allowing Ultimate Wax to cure, wipe it off with a QD spray, and then apply Ultimate Fast Finish. Yes, there is no issue using UQD & UQW to maintain UFF.
