Internet is a wonderful place.

So many different forums for all kinds of things.

Anyway, here is something I came across on a barge forums.. I mean Soarer forum..

Hope you got some time and money on your hands..

But once you are done, you’ll be able to see that bit of chicken you got between your front teeth there..

stop telling lies all of you!!!!

This is what i use, and ill follow up with some pics

Firstly i give her a wash using Johsons & Johnsons baby shampoo, with a Meguirs Lambswool wash mit.

Then a chamois with a Meguirs Microfibre chamois

Then a coat of Meguirs Paint Cleaner

Then a coat of Meguirs Deep Crystal Polish

Then leave that overnight

Then a coat of Autoglym Synthetic Wax

Leave that sit overnight

Then a coat of Turtle Wax Carnuaba Wax

This is what it looks like. This is of my old 33, n was a few days after it was all done, will be doing it to the gtr soon.

here are the things wrong with that..

Firstly i give her a wash using Johsons & Johnsons baby shampoo, with a Meguirs Lambswool wash mit.

do not use human products on the car, is designd to moisture rise a baby, so it has alot of oil in it, which will sit on the surface of your car.. the mits are crap, all they do is scratch as they get cloggd with dirt

Then a chamois with a Meguirs Microfibre chamoi

Then a coat of Meguirs Paint Cleaner

its crap

Then a coat of Meguirs Deep Crystal Polish

its crap

Then leave that overnight

why?

Then a coat of Autoglym Synthetic Wax

why? you already used the meguiers, theres no point waxing over wax

Leave that sit overnight

Then a coat of Turtle Wax Carnuaba Wax

why? you already used the autoglym, theres no point waxing over wax

meguiers is shit house, autoglym is much better..

But i use zymol, german products.

it is the best, nothing comes even close..

edit: i could get a better finish that yours, cheaper, and quicker..

wash car.

clay car with 3M paint clay, its removes fallout and other things on the surface.

wax car using zymol cleaner wax ($60) it will fill small scratches and hide swirl marks, has %17 canuba, and will out gloss most other things of the same price ont he market and last longer..

You can get up to %90 canuba in the zymol range, obviously they get more expensive, but its the best..

all that stuff was recommended by Will Wax You...so dont ya think they'd know a thing or too about it? :no:

Also the idea of putting on dual layers is to give the efect of both the synthetic and natural waxes. If you look at show cars, they dont just have one layer, and one type of wax, they use mutliple layers of differing types.

Reason u let them dry is so they set, or you dont bring out their true qualities if you just do them back to back.

no, show cars use natural wax;s with high canuba to give it taht mega gloss, there is no point in waxing over wax, it wont make a difference..

and dont let it dry, thats when you scratch the paint taking it off. i know the techwax is easier to take off dry, but, i dont like it as it gives nasty streaks

Well - i just used Meguiars Mirror Glaze Swilrl Remover 2.0

And I still have swirls............

Buggger !

My experience with Meguiares is this:

Dark Blue car with bad swirls...

Deep Crystal Paint Cleaner : to remove old waxes and buildup. (run fingers over paint work..is it rough? buildup!)

Then I used the Swirl Remover... it got alot of swirls out, but not all...

Then I followed up with the hi-tech yellow wax.

It looked alot better!!

its not "build up" its fall out, its shit in the air that lands and sits on your car...

If you park at a trainstation youll have rail dust all over your car.

the best way is to clay your car..

also, the swirl remover dosnt remove them, it just hides them, thats why after afew washes they are back,
