I always use meguiars, it's worth getting the clay and the quick detailler too to keep the paint like glass.

Just bought that clay kit the other day. That job's going to take a while.............

Nxt generation tech wax is also spot on. Do that 3 stage system cleaner twice a year =before the winter and before summer if it ever gets here properly.

I agree nxt generation tech wax is good. Clay bar works but it's a LOT of effort and won't last that long, but great for getting oily spot off.
They also do a shamy (SP?) thats like a towel and its BRILLIANT, I dried my whole car and only needed to wrinse it once!

The gold class products are the absolute dogs especially the wax (better finish on dark cars compared to tech wax). I have used the 3 bottle deep crystal system - my only complaint is that it takes ages to put on. I does look at bit better than gold class so it is only used maybe 2 -3 times a year.

Their clay bars are great too - gets all the crap out of the paint prior to waxing (always do this before I use the deep crystal.). Recommend the meguiars super shine microfiber cloths - pain free polishing and just chuck em in the wash when you are done. Think there should be a cleaning section on here.

from what i have seen maccer do ( and i would say that he has the cleanist, shinnest skyline on here)
1. use clay with the quick detailer to smooth paint
2. use paint cleaner to remove all the crap (step 1)
3. use step 2 polish
4. use step 3 wax

then all you need to do to keep car clean is use the quick detailer to wipe off dirt
meguires reccommend doing the full treatment 2 times a year unless the car needs a lot of tlc

I did mine yesterday, with amazing results....

To be honest I was preparing to give the boot a respray as it felt very rough to the touch and had no shine in it at all. Then I heard a tale about clay....

I spent A LOT of money on Meguiar's products, but they will last me a long time (probably as long as the car). Bought all my stuff at autogeek.net and got busy.

1. Washed vehicle with NXT Gen Tech Wash and a microfiber mitt
2. Clayed entire vehicle with Pinnacle clay kit (Meguiar's is just as good, but availability was an issue)
3. Applied NXT Gen Tech Wax with a foam applicator (easy to use)
4. Buffed wax off an hour later

Tech wax has a mild abrasive/cleaning effect, but for rough paint a polish would still usually be recommended to clean the paint up before waxing. I skipped it because of the clay doing a p-r-e-t-t-y good cleaning job, and because the tech has some polishing properties to it. The result was still stunning.

Before last night's paint worship session, I had also used Scratch-X to remove envy marks* from my hood a few times, so that helped the overall result as well.....

*(envy marks=the scratches left on your paint by people sliding their finger nails along your exterior as they walk by your car. either due to admiration or simply due to being c*nts) :Uzi:

For some reason, Halford local to me only have the polish... so I try something else.

The pain is relatively clean being painted not too long ago... So I gave it a quick wash...

I jump straight to step2 with the Meguiar polish, and you can really see it brings out the color.

Then to protect the polish, I use Auto Gylm Deep Gloss Enchement (what ever it was called. :p)

Basically it is a sealant with hard wax in it, and the result was much better then what I have expected. but it was a pain trying to get the wax off, but buff to a shine I think my car never look better.

I also have the NXT Tech Wax, which is very easy to use... easy on and easy off...but the shine isn't as deep as the polish plus the sealent... :D
