Ancient technology in a modern world
Are you one of those people who are still using paste wax on your car or truck? Why…?
Stand up, brush the dust off your knees, You don’t have to do that anymore,.
You love a beautiful clean shine on your vehicle, most of us do but the United Cavemen Front have been telling us that there is only one way to do that, with elbow grease, wax and an long never ending assortment of wax support products. Over Kill by modern standards.
These guys don’t see the light of day long enough to learn anything new. They are obsessed with their ancient ways, they find safety in numbers within their Internet forums.
None have had a problem with unleashing a verbal assault on you at any given time during a conversation where you disagree with their teachings.
You wanted a better easier way to keep a shine on your vehicle that did not involve the laborious maintenance required with wax.
You won’t get help from the cavemen, they fortify their caverns against all things new.
They have only recently made a truce with the god lightning. They brandish their power buffers in his honor.
Few of us are impressed. Science introduced the glaze, a liquid substance that was wiped onto the car and allowed to dry into a haze before being wiped off.
The result was a long lasting shine that withstood washings and held it’s shine, did not yellow or require buffing, It did not flake or produce as much waste but it did no better on rubber or vinyl than wax, It left a white residue on these things.
One of the first glazes was “Astro Shield”. It was a great DIY product, however it disappeared almost as suddenly as it appeared, Today’s equal is NU Finish.
As good as new finish is the cavern dwellers gather against it in internet forums.
Its not to their advantage for you to have technology that allows you to circumvent their ancient rituals.
What you expect from a cavemen? They haven’t invented a thing since the wheel.
Glazes were the answer for many of us, in particular NU Finish by name.
The one thing NU Finish lacked was the ability to become invisible once applied vinyl or rubber parts.
Unlike wax which has multiple draw backs, this was the Achilles heal for Nu Finish, its only obvious weak point.
Liquid water based spray waxes was the wax companies response to the quick shine fix. The cavemen didn’t like this either but accepted it over the non wax glazes.
Water based spray wax presented the ability to put a quick short lived shine. However it offered no protection or benefits to the paint.
There ought to be a law prohibiting cavemen from gathering in public forums. They tend to make the loudest objections against modern science.
You would think, with all the knuckle dragging it would be difficult for them to type.
Innocent individuals who want the facts so they can make an informed opinion are left in a cloud of confusion after being bombarded with reinforced rhetoric spewed upon them by the self serving cavern dwellers of the Internet detail forums.
If you are confused or a victim of conflicting information, you should acknowledge certain facts about finding something on the Internet.
1. No one solution is right for everyone
2. Change should be expected and resistance is known to follow.
When the opposition comes from the masses, the masses could still be wrong. when it comes
from one source it probably is wrong but could very well be right.
There is no known science to apply, you have to use common sense and judgement based on your understanding of what you read and how it applies to you.
Ancient technology belongs in the museum so when you find yourself being bombarded with caveman science, step back take a breather and try something new.
You might find the experience enlightening or just so so but you will have added experience to apply to what you read afterwards and enjoyment of becoming an self confident individual with a informed opinion.
