I want to know how you guys wax your cars. What process do you guys take to make them shinny. Im in the process of changing my product choice, but Ill give you my current one. I start with a good washing, prefer by hand with a sponge and buckey, but sometimes a drivethrough wash is all I have time for. Then I clean all the paint with Meguires paint cleaner-step 1. I follow this up with a soft microfiber towel to remove any residue I didnt get with teh terrycloth towel. Then I use a very slightly abrasive polish from Meguires, this removes some of the oxidation and scratches. The paint is now unprotected, but litteraly squeeky clean. Next step will vary time to time is not performed every time. Sometimes I will apply the Zymol cleaner wax, supposed to be used as one step, but works well here, its a great cleaner wax, but not up there with the best purpose made products. I like its smell basicly, and I wasted 12 dollars on it. The other step I use a polish, mothers show polish. This is not an abrasive but rather a chemical paint protection. Its the stuff people use instead of carnuba. Makes the car very shiney, is long lasting, good protection, but lacks any color enhancing lustre. Then I apply two coats of Maguires pure Carnuba Paste wax and buff off. All is done by hand as I like its end effect better than my electric buffer, plus no swirl marks. Thats my deal, inbetween waxing I use mother show car spray cleaner shiner stuff.
