So, I've been doing a lot of reading on here lately, and went through vid's restoration guides and was introduced to blitz wax (I have not used it or any other paste wax in the past). My machines unfortunately have seen a wide variety of cleaners and waxes over the years. But I'm going to be putting in a cpr playfield into my xenon at some point soon and I would also like to attempt a good restoration of my pinbot. So I want to make sure I'm using the right stuff now. I've narrowed it down to 4 waxes to use (plan on using naptha to clean the old wax off the playfields). I would like to hear what everyone's opinion is on these 4 waxes and which one I should go with.
1st. Carnu-b Carnauba wax. This is the wax I've been using for the last couple years, I haven't found an ingredients list on it, but it has always seemed to do a really good job. My biggest concern is I don't know if it contains silicone. Maybe someone else has had some experience with this stuff in the past? Here's a link to the wax. https://carnu-b.com/wax/8-carnu-b-car-wax.html 25 bucks for a 16 oz bottle.
2nd. Blitz Wax. From what I've read this is one of the favorites on here. Vid highly recommends it in his guides, it is somewhat spendy but not the most expensive option... 32 bucks for 12 oz jar.
3rd. P21-S Silver top. No Beeswax, supposedly lasts longer than the blue top. So I think I've eliminated the blue top from my list... Unless someone puts forth a good argument for it. 44 bucks for a 6.2 oz jar... that's a lot hah.
4th. S100 Carnauba Paste Wax. I Haven't heard much about this one... I've heard maybe its better than the blue top p21s, I've also heard other opinions on it... Price is 16 bucks for 6.2 oz...
Those are my options. Please don't bother suggesting other waxes, I've narrowed it down to these 4, so would love to hear my fellow pinsiders chime in and let me know which wax they would be buying if they were me.
