Subaru Stars Looking for Poorboy's Natty's Blue users

I did a search and couldn't find anything definite so I figured I'd ask the ppl who use it on there blue cars what do they think of it , i.e. is it the best for WRB(as I've been told)? Compared to Adam's, Zaino's, etc.. does it enhance the blue? Thanks for any and all help!

Its not a bad stuff. I used it once. Honestly from what ive learned 85% of what you can see shine and depth wise is from prep. now some waxes will make metallics "pop" while others will add more depth. I found Natty Blue to be sorta neutral and not make the flake stand out on my 06 WRB wrx. Pinnacle signature series II is really good for makeing the metallic flake come alive. But since i bought my jar its gone from $35 to $50. I fell for the wax hype and now have about 12-15 different LSP aka waxes and sealants. So i just trade some of my stuff off every so often. Right now iv been using a wax from Rubbish Boys called Original Edition. It comes from the UK. It doesnt do anything to make the flake stand out but the depth is amazing and it makes the color really deep blue. So depending on what you like will determine what wax would be best for you. also some waxes are really easy to work with then others. so it just comes down to preferences

I've used the Nattys Blue. Like all the Poorboys Nattys waxes, its a very good bang for the buck wax. But as already mentioned, the majority of the shine will come from the prep work, AKA polishing.

I've got a small amount of Natty's Blue left. It's a little crumbly in the container, but that won't affect how it works. PM me if you want it.

Search autopia.org for more on Natty's Blue.

I've used this product on a blue Nissan 350z that was in very bad shape. Very good easy on, easy off inexpensive wax that has a good amount of shine and will add depth or a "wet" look to your color. I wouldn’t really compare to Zanio as that is a sealant and very sterile which will just shine but won’t add much depth. I will say that I do think it adds more depth than a comparable Adam's carnauba product

It really depends on what you want; Wax vs Sealants give two very different looks. On darker colors I always recommend a good carnauba wax as they tend to add the deeper wet look to properly prepped paint. On lighter colors, such as white and silver I usually recommend a sealant as these colors are hard to add depth to but look great with a crisp high shine product.

As far as its claims: "The new formula, called Natty’s Paste Wax (BLUE), is designed specifically to hide blemishes and scratches in dark paints." I would have to say, not so much. Like others have noted, make sure you polish well and use a good glaze before applying the wax if you are looking to remove / fill scratches and imperfections.

Nattys Blue isnt a bad wax at all. like stated before its a good bang for the buck. Plus is smells like bubble gum. Since i started using botique detailing products iv been spoiled with most of them smelling good and im finding myself being steered away from some products because of there smell. Also ease of use comes into factor with some of the waxes as well. I find Natty Blue cost wise is great. Ease of applying isnt hard either. Just swipe the top 1-3 times with your foam pad applicator and u can usually do about a fender or door worth of painted area. Its not to hard to remove as long as u dont use to much product. Durability id have to say depending on the elements is an exceptable 2-3 months give or take your situation. For 15-20 bucks id say its not a bad wax to start with. I would highly recomend you buying there black hole show glaze to use before hand. Iv heard and read good things about poor boys black hole show glaze. So if you can pick a bottle of that up as well and use it after ur done washing ur car then top that off with Nattys Blue you should be very satisfied with the results.

you wont need the cw if your using the glaze. The glaze is a cleaner that has fillers in it to hide swirls. So if the car has been clayed then you simply wash, glaze and wax and ur done.

I sue the poorboy's polish/sealant and then the natty's blue or natty's red limited edition from autogeek.net and it always looks amazing on my wrb wrx. Like was said, prep is where it's at so getting the swirls/blemishes out first will help your results, but I've been very impressed with the ease of use these waxes have offered. Looks great and lasts what I would expect it to.
