Re: Wax recommendations

Meguires, now 3M, sells more products than all others combined for good reason. Cutting, buffing, pads, polishes, waxes and quick detail products. They own the market, for good reason. My "top" car was finished in 11 and has never been washed, except wheels. It is black and I use Mequires/3M glaze, no wax. It never sees the elements and it is black. I use 100% cotton t-shirts to buff. Most of the micro cloths are made of polyester, basically plastic and can leave marks, check it under a blue light!! When I had a detail shop in OK City, I used and tried many products and is very hard to tell the difference and most do the job and can get crazy expensive per ounce.

I have always sworn by Meguiar's products. Only way to know is to test for yourself - trial and error. My black Silverado is my test vehicle lol. I actually called Meguiar's to see what they would recommend for a high end basecoat/clearcoat black paint job. They recommended claybar with their Quik Detail spray, Ultimate Compound, Show Car Glaze and finally Gold Class paste wax. All applied with a quality d/a polisher and appropriate foam pad for each product. Have to say that I did not like the show car glaze - it is really oily and hard to get it all off. Traded it out for Chemical Guys UV Blacklight Glaze and couldn't be happier. At the show I wipe it down with Lucas Slick Mist. This combo got me a best in show last month so I think I'll stick with it! In addition, I started using F11 on my daily driver truck as a final in between product. Stuff is amazing after you get 2 or 3 coats on.
