    I like to do a clay bar treatment, next I use the NXT wax then I use the Polish they sell at Harley Davidson..i think it was call T-100.

    If your looking for a complete high end system look at the Adams line.

    Thats the EXACT combo I just used yesterday on my stang. Works pretty good.

    Its S-100; its a pure carnauba wax not a polish.

    I like to use the Meguirs 3 step wash. Paint cleaner, Polish, Wax. Takes time but that is the fun part about washing a car cause it comes out beautiful. Below is my old mustang that I routinely used the 3 step shine on.

    Never used the clay bar, never really heard about it. I used Eagle One Nanowax and Mother's clearcoat repair on the car last weekend. Both products worked well; the Mother's took out a few small light scratches on the clearcoat and the Nanowax did a great job giving the car a deep shine.

    Come on guys... the clay bar is just to clean the surface. You have to actually use a wax afterward. Go to your local auto paint store, get some good meguires wax. They will point you in the right direction. IF there is a heavy oxidation (whiteish haze from airborne pollutants, chemicals, acid rain, dirt, and whatever else there is) you have to get a cleaner that will work to get it off. By going by the paint store, the "experts" if they are worth a hoot, will point you in the right direction. I have always relied on a paintstore's recommendation cause hell, they sell the paint, and deal with it and all aspects 24/7. I don't go to an autoparts store or walmart to get it. Above is my 93 SHO. Look at the shine on that bad boy. Never claybared, just some good ole rub-a-dub.

    Shines pretty good man. I agree I never use the clay bar all I use is the 3 step Meguires and love the shine it gives. It brought out the paint again on the camaro that I used to have after it had been sitting in a barn for over 10 years. To bad it couldn't get the rat pee smell out of the mint condition interior lol. All that would have fixed that would be a new carpet.
