Glen e...you're up!
I live in central Florida and it gets real hot amount here. Today it was 95,97. Just wondering if any others who live in these hot places ,use or know of products that work best in protecting the finish on the cars. There are so many on the market that it can be confusing.

All sealants and coatings work in all temperatures.
carnubas and waxes fade quicker in hot temps but are better for "pop" and shows.
And polishes have nothing to do with temp, they are a prep item.
I'll let others put up specific brands......I preach more procedure and product type. A good procedure using blackfire, but could be Adams, Zaino or any other hi class mfr of detailing products:

Florida is kinda cool when it is a mild 111 here in Vegas
I have been using Liquid Glass for 35 years. Incredible stuff. It is ideal for hot sunny climate like we have here in FL. . LG hardens much more quickly in high temperatures. The hotter it gets, the harder LG becomes. The harder it gets, the shinier it gets and provides better protection. Other car polishes and waxes break down in the heat. This is a major difference that makes LG Polish so much better than other products. If you are interested in more information from my experience let me know and I will PM you.

Glen E, when should clay bars be used? Is it for older paint for when cars have been sitting in the elements? Just curious, thank you.

Clean a section of finish, then wrap your hand in a single layer of plastic wrap and run it over the surface. If it feels smooth, no clay bar type product is needed. If you feel bumps, guess what?
Clay bars are supposedly "old school" now and people recommend "nano skin" products.
Nothing but Adams products on my CG 15 3LT but then again I don't live in a hot climate. Good luck.
I use a brand called Ammonyc.com. Even if you don't use his stuff he truly hands down has the best information out there.
