Hey PT17,

Biggest question I got for you before you wax, is your paint smooth like glass, or rough like fine sand paper to the touch? If its smooth, your good to go. If its rough, I would highly recommend picking up a Clay Bar to remove contaminants from your paint before you wax. Here is a Link to the one Meguiar's has:

Meguiar's Direct Smooth Surface® Clay Kit

One last thing, if you would like your paint to really stand out, and look its best, I again really recommend using a good hand Glaze before waxing! Glaze is designed to give back vital nuitriants to your paint which disipate while in direct contact with sunlight, and also helps round off the edges from Swirl Marks giving you the best light refractivity (MORE GLOSS) possible! Here is a Link to a great Meguiar's Glaze:

Meguiar's Direct Show Car Glaze -

If you do the steps above, you will see a huge improvement in your paint, and will have a good base surface to wax!


The more expensive the ingredients in the chemicals, the better the end results!

Good cheap wax that you can find everywhere:

Meguiar's Direct Hi-Tech Yellow Wax Liquid - $12.50

Meguiar's Direct Gold Class Liquid Wax $12.99

Next Step Up, and a really great wax I used to use in my Detail Shop

:M-Ron Glass - California Custom Products Inc. $15.00

A few of the best waxes you can find on the market, which will produce the best possible results:

(Import Polish, Used by Factory Bentley, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche)

Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine $25.00

Best hard shell resin with Nano Technology to resist scratching:

BLACKFIRE Scratch Resistant Clear Finishing Polish $26.95

Klasse is pretty also known throughout the Professional Detailing Industry, and has some great products!

Klasse All-In-One, 16.9 oz. $28.00

Take it easy and be sure to post some pic's of that sweet shine!
