you can also throw in the Scratch remover between clay bar and Polish.ThurzNite said:meguires pro stuff, not the ones you get on the shelf at the auto store. and like donnie said...wash car with dish washing soap, run clay bar, polish, then wax. makes the car super duper smooth and nice and shiny.
That's what I did to the Altima 2 weeks after I bought it...wash, clay, swirl remover, polish, wax...took a whole day to finish but looks awesome.victor said:

The polish is what gives you that gloss. The clay bar is what removes all those bumps from tree sap. The strach remover gets rid of any fine swirls and scratches, and the wax is what protects everything.
Of course that's the super duper car wash plan...
I've been planning to do the whole git-up. Which products you use?ThurzNite said:

Make sure the car stays in the shade the whole time...don't want the body panels to heat up.
I bought a sander/polisher last week and did everything. Wash, pre-wax, swirl mark remover, polish, wax. The car is sooooo shiny now. I haven't washed it in a week, and it's been raining for 3 days now and the car still isn't dirty because the water beads right off of it. It's pretty amazing, usually I only wax it. The paint is so smooth and soft feeling. I've gotten alot of compliments, an my neibhors jealous now cause his newer car isn't a shiny as minevictor said:

I'm planning on using a combo of the Medallion and the MEguiar's Show car #7 or something like that for the polish.
it does dull the paint if you wash your car with it all the time, only do it before you wax. Or else your paint over time will become dull and oxidizedvindeisel said:i have always used regular car wash soap and have always heard that the dish washing soap dulls the paint, thank you all for this info...I also always use the Meguires with the cleaned, scratch remover, polish and carnuba wax, is there another step form there that would help after those steps?
