Ultimate Fast Finish is now Meguiar's most advanced synthetic polymer protection offered. Not only is Ultimate Fast Finish Meguiar's top tier protection offering, it is also the quickest & easiest way to apply protection to your vehicle with it's no buffing, aerosol application!

Here are some of the highlighted features from the product introduction thread (http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?65264-Meguiar-s-Ultimate-Fast-Finish)


Features:

Meguiar's most advanced paint protecting formula
Technologically advanced, innovative, synthetic polymer coating provides relentless water beading protection wash after wash*
Protects for a full year!*
Meguiar's fastest & easiest way to protect a paint finish, simply spray on & wipe off
Use by itself or even on top of wax to extend protection.
*Lab tested durability over 100 wash cycles using a pH balanced car wash

Details:

Part#: G18309
MSRP $17.99 USD
Size: 8.5 oz aerosol
Includes Microfiber Towel



Ultimate Fast Finish can be used a couple different ways depending on your goals & preference:

1) Ultimate Fast Finish can be used in place of your wax, because after all, it provides synthetic, polymer protection The trade-off is that you may not achieve the level of darkness, reflectivity, and depth of gloss that comes from either a true carnauba or synthetic wax product. Some examples of application may be to:
Basic wash & protect: Wash, Clay if needed, apply Ultimate Fast Finish
Show Car Detail: Wash, Clay if needed, Ultimate Compound if needed, Ultimate Polish, Ultimate Fast Finish

2) Ultimate Fast Finish can also be used in addition to your favorite Meguiar's Liquid or Paste Wax as a last step product (LSP) to lock in darkness, reflectivity & depth of gloss. In fact, if you are looking to get maximum gloss & maximum protection, Meguiar's recommends applying your favorite liquid or paste wax first, and then applying Ultimate Fast Finish as your final step. For best results wait a full 12 - 24 hours after applying your favorite liquid or paste wax before applying Ultimate Fast Finish.

Finally, regardless of which approach you choose, it is recommended to maintain the finish with your favorite Meguiar's Detailer. Ultimate Fast Finish has been formulated with complimentary chemistry to all Meguiar's Detailers, insuring there's no degradation in the protection or performance of Ultimate Fast Finish.

Just like you would do before applying a traditional liquid or paste wax, either wash the vehicle or use a spray detailer like Meguiar's Quik Detailer Mist & Wipe to ensure the surface is free of loose contaminants. If needed, clay your vehicle with Meguiar's Smooth Surface Clay Kit to remove any above surface contaminants or use our Ultimate Compound to remove any swirls, scratches, or stains.

Today we were applying Ultimate Fast Finish on this Audi R8:

http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/2521/medium/IMG_0569_Custom_.JPG

Spray a small amount directly onto the included black Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel then spread the product over a small section of the vehicle at a time, i.e. half the hood. Product does not need to dry. Flip to the dry side of the microfiber towel for final wipe to ensure even coverage, and your done!

Great article Nick. Was fast finish the only product applied to this Audi? What prep work was involved? The reason I ask is because that is some great reflection and gloss on the Audi.

This article really gives some more important details about Ultimate Fast Finish.

Just a quick question.
Would it be preferred way to use Ultimate Fast Finish as a first/base protection product, and then optionally apply another wax/sealant on top, because of its longest protection period offered ? Or is it better to use it to lock some other wax/sealant, by topping it with UFF ?

Thank you sir! Confirmed it was prepped w/ M100 Pro Speed Compound on DMC5 DA Microfiber Cutting Disc followed by M205 on DFP5 Soft Buff Yellow Foam Polishing Disc, then Ultimate Paste Wax, all applied with our MT300 Dual Action Polisher. I agree on the reflections! They were actually making it difficult to capture the pictures we wanted because of the reflections.

Hi Greg,

Overall we recommend using Ultimate Fast Finish by itself in place of your wax, or as your final Last Step Product (LSP), topping your favorite liquid or paste wax, to lock in the benefits of your favorite liquid or paste wax which was applied. But yes! A third way if you prefer, Ultimate Fast Finish can be applied, allowed to cure, and then followed with your favorite liquid or paste wax.

Hope this helps! - Nick

2. Is there anything it shouldn't be applied to? I am thinking of the typical issue of wax turning rubber white/hazy.

I tried it on trim and didn't see any issue. I applied and wipe off just as if it was applied on paint. Darkened the trim ever so slightly.

Also I used very little using it on a midsize sedan.

I don't forsee it being available in a different form. This product is designed & recommended for use on paint, so it is not recommended to get it onto surfaces other than paint, but with that being said, I have applied it to various smooth & glossy trim with no issues.

Absolutely. Just like you would with our traditional liquid & paste waxes, you can maintain with any of our Spray Waxes like D156 Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax, Ultimate Quik Wax, etc.

Can you use a foam applicator pad instead of a microfiber towel to apply Fast Finish? That way less product gets absorbed?

Thanks Marc! I have not tried applying it with a foam applicator like our W0004 Soft Foam Applicators but I watched my boss Mike Pennington apply it to his Tahoe the other day with a foam applicator pad and it worked just fine. He did say that when initially spreading it did drag a little bit, but once it was spread it glided fine. So that is what we found when applying it with foam

Ok so i understand you can use the fast finish as a last step product and if you do use a wax under the fast finish then give the wax time to cure. But i was wondering if the fast finish would be able to bond correctly if there is a wax layer on the car? I was wanting to use this new black wax i got for my black car and i want to use the ultimate fast finish as well but idk if the wax should go on the car first or if the UFF should? I know with coatings, you should apply to a clean wax free and sealant free surface to assure max bonding ability. I guess all i want to know is how i should apply my new black paste wax and this UFF together? Wax then UFF? Or UFF then wax?

I've enjoyed my trials with Ultimate Fast Finish over the last couple of weeks. Applied to several of my regular customers cars so I could get their ongoing feedback, and also to my sons to keep up with longevity myself (even though he's away at school). As has been described, application is quite easy. I'm old school so it's hard for me to believe something that quick and easy is going to outlast my other traditional options. But I'm willing to learn something new! I am a little puzzled as to why a microfiber towel was given as the best applicator tool. It's next to impossible NOT to have some product get on nearby trim or glass, if it really matters. My next application I'll try a square, microfiber covered, foam pad.

End result is a definite thumbs up though! And I don't see any difference in gloss or depth of reflection as compared to Meg's #21 or #20.

If FF is applied over another LSP (Wax or Sealant) does this diminish the durability of the FF?

Based on our testing, applying your favorite coat of liquid or paste wax first, and then applying Ultimate Fast Finish, does not affect the durability. In fact, the product was actually designed to be applied this way if the users wishes to do so (or by itself).

Hi Rhnos,

Yes, you can apply Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish after applying our Ultimate Wax. If you were to apply the products in this way, we would recommend applying Ultimate Wax, letting it dry, wiping it off, and then waiting 12 - 24 hours for the Ultimate Wax to fully cure. If there is any dust on the finish after allowing Ultimate Wax to cure, wipe it off with a QD spray, and then apply Ultimate Fast Finish. Yes, there is no issue using UQD & UQW to maintain UFF.

Well, scratch that intellectual question I posted regarding UFF + a non-Meguiar's product. Anyway, I went ahead and removed my car's previous wax application because I had it repaired and as expected, it got some paint overspray. I washed the car with 50/50 or car shampoo with a bit of dishwashing liquid (yes, not good but I did it for the 1st time in my life) just enough to remove the old wax applied. Proceeded to claying to ensure a smooth, contaminant free surface. Applied Ultimate Paste Wax in the morning, did some work related stuff, applied UFF late in the afternoon. So far, too easy to apply. I've forgotten how easy Ultimate Paste is to apply and remove, and how it leaves a nice, crisp finish after and even better after the recommended cure time. I expected an even slicker feel with the application of UFF, but no, it left a different feel to the finish after application and curing.

UFF is too easy to apply. Sure, the shine it left is not as great as the traditional waxes/sealants, but there is a bit of enhancement after application. The paint seems to have a slightly waxed feel, but a tougher waxed feel. Water beading? That is one thing I'm not sure of. But I really like the results I got, and with the ease of use this product has, I wouldn't mind or I wouldn't even care if this doesn't last a full 12 months.

This product is very appealing to me. We always want the best shine and durability, while some products can offer incredible shine, durability, it can come at the expense of user friendliness. The ultimate wax and ultimate fast finish combination for me is a winner. Easy to use, even more so the UFF, I think this will now be my go to product.

Welcome to MOL. Yes and most likely Yes. There would be no issue applying Ultimate Fast Finish to alloy wheels. Just make sure the wheels are cool to the touch & clean of course. It is not necessarily designed for this or to make cleaning wheels easier but it likely will help. It should be noted the product will not last quite as long because of what wheels are constantly subjected to. Frequent care for wheels is the best for maintenance. The less time contaminants sit on the wheel the less likely they will have a chance to cause an issue.

Hi tophog,

Ultimate Fast Finish was designed for use on paint, and not much testing was done on fiberglass/gel coat. With that said, we have heard of it being used on fiberglass/gel coat with great success.

Hi Rappy,

It was not designed & tested for glass, and we would not suggest it because of the potential for glare. We would suggest our Perfect Clarity Glass Care Kit, which has our Perfect Clarity Glass Sealant, for best results. With that said, we have heard of it being used on glass with good results. The new Hybrid Ceramic Wax can be used on glass; it's recommended to be applied to all exterior surfaces.

Ultimate Fast Finish was not designed or tested on vinyl wraps or decals, so because of that, we cannot officially recommend it's use on that surface. We do however have a product which can be used on glossy or matte finished vinyl wraps or decals, our Ultimate Quik Wax. You'll just want to apply it more often.

Hope this helps.

I'm looking to understand how best to maintain UFF on my car. This was my process when applying it for the first time (1) Clean via Ultimate waterless wash & Wax (2) applied a layer of Meguiars Quik Wax and (3) UFF as the last step.

My question is - what is the right and best way to maintain both the Quik Wax and UFF on the car, do I just use UFF and ignore Quik Wax when re-applying after 6 months or so?

Appreciate the advice!

Welcome to Meguiar's Online! Based on what you have described & what you have, I would recommend using Ultimate Fast Finish as your main source of protection. Wash the vehicle, with a tradtional or waterless wash method, and then apply Ultimate Fast Finish to a clean & dry paint surface, ideally in the shade, on a cool surface. You can then maintain with tradtional or waterless washing as frequently as you would like, and then you can also maintain gloss, slickness, & provide added protection, by using Ultimate Quik Wax, as frequently as your would like.

One thing you may consider, is that right now it doesn't sound as though you are using a product which has any polishing oils, which greatly help to provide show car like gloss. Most all of Meguiar's traditional liquid or paste waxes contain polishing oils, for added gloss, in addition to either carnauba or synthetic protection properties. Another way to add polishing oils for extra gloss is with the use of a dedicated polish, like our Ultimate Polish Pre-Waxing Glaze. Another option would be a Cleaner Wax, like our A12 Cleaner Wax, or new 3 in 1 Wax.

It all depends on your overall goals & expectations for the car. Ultimate Fast Finish can be used as your primary source of protection, and while is provides great gloss, it mainly focuses on protection. Many persons will use UFF in addition to their favorite more traditional liquid or paste.

Hope this helps. Feel free to post further questions.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the advice. I'm currently looking after a White VW Golf GTI - I was told the white is a "soft" color and needs more attention. I don't have access to water where I live hence why I started using the Waterless Wash & Wax.

For the polishing oils, which of these do you think suit the White better - https://www.meguiars.com.au/polish-protect/ultimate-polish/ or https://www.meguiars.com.au/polish-protect/ultimate-liquid-wax/? Are they the same product?

From what you said, I'll start using UFF as the protection layer and your suggested waxes for the showroom gloss - and skip the Quik Wax altogether. Seems like overkill to use all of them.

Again - appreciate the assist!

Cheers

Hi Tony,

The color white can really benefit from a product which has cleaning or mild abrasive ability. Not that you have to do it all the time, but for the initial preparation step, a product with cleaning ability will really brighten up the color, especially with a dual action polisher machine, it can be significant. IF working by hand to try to achieve this brightening, i would recommend a Cleaner Wax like our new 3 in 1 Wax. You can always top with Ultimate Wax for added protection. Ultimate Polish is a great product but I don't believe it is going to achieve what we are going for here in terms of brightness, it doesn't have enough cleaning ability. If you were to use a dual action polisher machine, I would recommend our M205 Ultra Finishing Polish or M210 Ultra Pro Finishing Polish.

Hope this helps. Hopefully others can chime in. I'm going to be out of office all day, but will response tonight or tomorrow morning.

Thanks, Nick

This is where I admit I'm out of my depth and the numerous product lines etc have gotten the best of me. From what you've said, specifically for me, it seems best for me to start with the new 3 in 1 Cleaner Wax (which I can't seem to locate online in Australia) followed with Ultimate Wax? Where does UFF fit in or should i disregard it all together.

Still in the infancy of my learning curve so appreciate all the help i can get.

I can't address the "3 in 1" but I do use UFF on top of Ult Liquid Wax. Mainly because it helps (big time) during the vicious winter months here. The c rap from all the snow, salt, and whatever doesn't stick too bad. That said, I have gone to using HWC on her car (very impressed with it so far) and we'll just have to see how it fairs (fares?) in few months (ugh).

Every few months I use ULW applied with the DA power tool (DA adapter for your drill). Then follow it up with UFF on top.
UQW is used as part of the drying process after every wash, except for when I'm going to put down ULW.

If you don't have a DA and already have a high speed drill the DA power system is awesome just for saving your arm when applying wax.

For me putting on wax is the most easy you can do with a paint. Takes 20 minutes. Absolutly no elbow grease is needed, just let the applicator slide on the surface
