oh lol i forgot to say what it was, its a type of wax i guess but its not a wax its like a protectanct or something but you apply it and it bonds to the paint and you apply several coats and then the dirt doesnt really stick to the paint and prevents chipping and whatnot,
but it makes it very shiny apparently and lasts a long time

idk what ud call it, its $20 a can available at pepboys
"his amazing special formula makes it possible to coat your vehicle with a clear, hard, smooth, and mirror-like finish with a minimum of effort. The finish will not crack, chip, peel, or turn yellow. Liquid Glass is safe for use on today's clearcoats, gelcoats, acrylics, metalflakes, candy apples, pearls, plastic paints, epoxies, urethanes, etc. Also does an excellent job on chrome, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, etc.

Use on automobiles, trucks, vans, RV's, motorcycles, and other vehicles. Provides excellent protection against normal road, atmospheric, and other sources of pollution, dirt, etc. Retards oxidation of painted metals and fiberglass. Also use on aircraft to protect, keep clean, and reduce surface friction. It also has hundreds of uses in and around the home, (for example, Formica, ceramic tile, jewelry, glass, sporting and camping equipment, etc.) "

I never used it on my cars but a friend had used it on his 77' Deville that was starting to fade. After he was done waxing it it looked like a new paint job.

how do you use it? paint it on? or just kinda like wax or what? I would try it but who knows what the long term effects are? you may have to keep applying it every couple months.

I'd personally stick to stripping the old wax, do a solid clay bar job, then a good application of new wax and BUFF. then run your hands over it and try to tell me you cant tell the difference... SILK baby... silk.
