Car wax

Meguiars 3 step Deep Crystal products are awesome. I spent most of the day Sunday waxing my wife's 99 Altima. It had what looked like water streaks in the paint. Washing it did nothing. It seemed to be in the paint. I picked up the Meguiars product and it worked great. The paint looks new.

Not trying to sell the stuff...

I have used the 3M finesse glazing compound products as well with great results.

I bought one of the orbital wax machines and it is incredible how much those help. Mine was in the discount section at Miejer for $20, regular $40. Used it on both boat and car and really makes waxing a lot easier.

Yeah, I wish I had one of those. I have what feels like a double square knot in my back today. Waxing a car 3 times is not fun, but the results were worth it... I figured I saved around $100, as that is what I would have been charged by a local shop to buff the car.

FOR WHAT ITS WORTH
i like meguiars waxes and 3m's glazes. the only problem with glaze is that it is water based and the first time it rains--it washes off. the best thing to do is glaze the car with 3m hand glaze and then wax it with meguiars #26 high tech yellow wax. great shine, and protection.

I park my truck outside and every time it rains its cleaned automatically.

Now the boat is a different story.

I have a sickness with keeping my vehicles clean. My Dad is the same way. I think it is inherent. The boat is no different. The house on the otherhand is. I let the wife worry about that and have someone come in every other week to do the deep clean. Brings me to another point... Housecleaners are worth every penny. The time not spent cleaning the house is time spent on the lake or doing whatever else you so desire. I'm trying to talk the treasurer (AKA wife) into hiring someone to mow the lawn. More time, MORE TIME...

Thats good to know that you can't use glazing compound alone. Is the meguiars #26 high tech yellow wax better than other wax. I used the 3M wax after using the glazing compound on the hull.

BC- as long as you can accept that you have this sickness, you're on the way to recovery. Are you looking for a support group?

I Like The Meguiars Wax Because If You Get It On Black Mouldings(rub Rail, Truck Door...) It Will Not Leave A White Smudge On The Black. I'm Not Downing 3m They Are Good Products.
