The Miracle that was Autofom - Detailing - Sponsored by ValetPro - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

Greetings all !!

Its my first posting so be gentle with me.

In these sunny days I am trying to restore the shine to my car but am struggling to find a polish as good as AUTOFOM that I bought about 10 years ago when drunk at 3 in the morning from a TV shopping channel.

The ad was showing the miracle ingredient "Fomblin A" another spin off from the space shuttle program and it looked too good to miss. (dont they all at 3 in the morning?)

The surprising thing is that it was amazing! the kit had wheel cleaner atc etc as well and I wish I had bought loads now.......has anyone seen it available anywhere for sale?

Thanks

R

"Hello all..

Need a little help with your wax experiences.

For years I have been using AutoFom wax and sealent. I knew they were bought by Blue Coral so when they got bought by them, I bought like 10 bottles.,

I have never had a wax that works as well as this and I recently ran out. I have tried Tech Wax

We must have seen the same ad because I used Autofom and it was without doubt the best polish I’d ever used and I’ve been driving for over thirty years. They would even set the bonnet alight to demonstrate how protective the coating was. Lol Nutters! Fantastic stuff. A shame it’s no longer available.

I bought about a dozen of the bottles (liquid) and a couple of cans (paste) when they were closing them out years ago for $1 each. Still have a number of unopened bottles and one unopened can of the paste that I stored in my basement. Used some a couple of years back. It was still good. Amazing stuff. Just don't get it on any black plastic trim. You will need to work overtime to get it off.

Interesting what did you like so much about AutoFom wax?
