    What is everyones thoughts on LSP for a Pearl White Car..

    Not looking durability, just a REAL WET SHINNY LOOK!!

    I'm thinking a wax due to the pearl in the paint, to make it POP...

    So whats everyones thoughts.

    You don't need to look further than P21s100%.

    I'd recommend you consider going with a sealant as your LSP, not necessarily a wax. As a general rule, better waxes seem to add depth to the finish on darker colors - but a good sealant option might best achieve the look you're going for on a white vehicle.

    CG JS109 is nice, FMJ also. Lots of others that I've seen in pictures that look great as well. If you go with a wax, I'd recommend Collinite 845, as IMHO it tends to be a really "glossy" looking wax with sharper reflections.

    Al-53 Welcome to Detailing

    I have not seen a product that makes white look better than Duragloss 501....ut has a great look on white and is super deep cleans the paint and adds a super lustre to the is a high gloss look...

    ask any one thats used it on white...they will say how good it is a cleaner type sealant...but it has some great durability also....I go all winter with just one coat....

    do not let the Marine Polish name scare paint safe by all means,,,being a marine type was made to be durable and bring a high gloss to paint and fiberglass..

    search it and see results...and best part it is cheap and can be bought at Carquest or ordered from them and gotten next day....

    Either this or RBOE would be sweet!

    Lusso Oro is also supposed to be killer on light colors.

    +1, although I'll say put DG111 or 105 on after the 501.

    I also like the 501/105 combo on painted wheels.

    I have a couple pics of both RBOE and SN on my ivory pearl Lincoln LS. Sorry for the following pic-whoring of my car:

    And wearing RBOE:

    Like others have said go with a sealant. Al-53 nailed it with the DG501 but put me in the boat with Pektel that topping 501 with 105 just makes white so bright you almost can't look at it. Another great alternative is Jeffs Werkstat Prime Acrylic followed by two coats of Acrylic Jett Trigger. This gives almost a nuba like look to white.

    Finishkare 2180 + 1000p looks insane on white.

    Can I make a new boat? Jason suggested 501 then 105 and THEN Aquawax as a topper for white and silver.

    I've used AW after washing, and spraying before drying the car (as per the instructions.) I love it. Works insanely well on the wheels especially.

    Good call.

    DG 105 for sealant, and CG Pete's 53 or CG 5050 would be ny choice.

    Blackfire sealant topped with P21s 100% looks great.

    I agree. As per richy's advice, I did the 501 topped with 105 and its great. I also agree with Werkstat. It gives a very carnauba looking glow to white. Very smooooooooth looking.

    I started using aquawax about two weeks ago and I've gone through almost an entire bottle. If you are not using this after each wash you're missing out. Easily in my top 5 must have products.

    DG 501 topped with 111. 501 does look great byitself but 111 has a "wetter: look

    Ken, on your recommendation, I picked up some of this Aquawax stuff. They had it on the shelf at Car Quest. You weren't kidding - it's a very impressive product. You guys really need to try it.
