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.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
