  4. I just ordered Z-Best car wax. I will see how it works and take pics after I wax her. Its suppose to be a good wax.
     
  5. autopia.org

  6. 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.
     
  7. Meguiar's three step process, after a good wash and clay bar treatment. Shine's it up real nice.

  9. Clay bar treatment ? I'm listening.....
     
  10. You HAVE to do the clay bar. Clay bar it :nice:
     
  11. 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.

  12. 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.
     
  13. i use jeffs werkstatt.
     
  14. i just got done laying and using the meguire's 3 step on the car i just bought last week.

    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.
     
  17. 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.
