    I use mainly Chemical Guys products. Haven't found a product from them that I haven't like yet.

    Luos, how do you like that Victoria Red? I heard really good things about it. How does it compare to waxes like P21S or Pete's 53?

    I love it. I only use it on the T/A though.
    RejeX on the daily drivers since they sit outside 24/7.

    Never tryed the other waxes you mentioned. I am sure Goose will chime in.

    I've never used Eagle One Nano Wax...
    How many steps did you use?

    The film you're talking about could be some streaks. You can remove those with a quick detailer. Some new tech products these days need to be applied in thin coats. Less is more
    If the "film" is whitey in color, it could be haze
    Did you clean the paint first to remove contaminants and old wax?
    It could be from a contaminated towel; as if it was used with another product at the same time. Again, product overload can cause this too

    These are just observations in case you may have overlooked things...

    Pinnacle Soverign is great on red, makes it deep and wet....uh that sounds...nevermind. Goes on easy and comes off just as easy, last a few months though.

    I like Chemical Guys Peats 53,Poorboys Nattys Blue & Red, Megs NXT 2.0, Adams Butter wax (same has CG's?) most of these other than the Megs are referred to has "boutique car waxes" for more info than we can ever find here, read up on car wax at http://autopia.org/forum/ (car detailing forum I hang out on)

    and their is a complete 6 page thread on waxes just a few done from this one:
    What Kind of Wax do you use?

    I have been using Adam's for years, but now I'll going to try SmartWax.

    I personlly feel it is more technic and less about product.
