I think Meguiar´s have great products, I have been using them since my truck was new and it looks better than the day I took it out the dealer. The only thing is that you have to apply them often because they don´t last long.

Yeah I agree, mine looks better now with almost 7 years on the paint, than the day I brought it home. It lasts a few washings, but not many.

I agree, Meguiars products produce a great shine, but do not protect for a long period of time. One of the worst things you can do is to wash your truck with dish soap. This strips all the wax off because it is a degreaser. Touchless car washes are also very hard on your wax protection because they use strong alkalines and acids to remove the dirt.

looks great

we just did part of my wifes car last night in Step 1 (cleaner)

it looked good to start with

but you could lightly rub your hand over the paint and feel this .... gritty kinda feeling (and I'll tellin you - it was sparkling clean)

then a good application of "step 1" and waa la !!!

much better

Step 2 is the Polish - which we did on the hood (didnt have all night to do the whole thing) now its so smooth you can put a t-shirt on the hood and it will slide off by itself.


You didnt mention Step 3 - Carnuba Wax !

Meguiar's makes an EXCELLENT line of products...and the best part is that their product line is complete...from paint to chrome care...ever since I had my first car I used Meguiar's and I have been using it ever since!

Enjoy!

I usually wash it with Meguiar´s shampoo, Clay bar it every 4 months, then apply Meguiar´s Step 2 Polish and finally instead of going to step 3 I use Gold Glass wax. Once in a while I use Meguiar´s Medallion Premium wax (very expensive) which is supposed to be their highest protection wax.
Sorry, no Pics, no money for Digital Camera until I pay off the truck.

I also sub Gold Class for the final step sometimes...it sort of puts the "finishing touch" on all your effort...
