You'll find quite a few Meguiars fans here!

Check out this thread Favorite auto detailing products

I should add that I have been using the NXT since it first hit the shelves. Easy on and very easy off. I found that applying with an electric buffer (I have the cheapest of the cheapest) gives much better results than hand applying. I always remove by hand.

If you want the best check out Zaino bros.

It costs a bit and is a little more work, but after the initial "clean", it is the easiest and has a better shine than any new car. I used it on my black truck I had and got many compliments and people that knew cars, said they never seen a shine like it.

I have bought dry wax's, wet wax's, powder and paste, but the only thing that works in a timely fashion is Meguiars.

Any wax takes time to apply and do it right, no matter what the label says.

I will update Airjers thread on what I do.

if ease of application is what you are after you need to try the "clay bar" by meguiars. you wash the vehicle and then you spray a small spot at a time with the supplied quick detailer spray and then rub the clay bar across the surface. its pulls all the junk off the surface of the paint. after that you can wax. I just did that on my truck and it was an easy wipe on wipe off deal with the paint so smooth. Wash, clay bar and wax was only about an hours time and I wasnt tired.

The clay bar idea came from Zaino, I believe. It removes the rail dust and gets the fine grit out of the paint.

First wash with warm water and Dawn dish soap. That removes all the wax and contaminants under it. Then use the clay bar with a soapy water or pump sprayer, stretching the clay and using clean sides of it. Aftre that, rinse, dry, and then apply your polish. Polish is much easier and faster than wax. Wax melts off of your paint. Polish can be put on in direct sunlight.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
