    Calling all Men in Black!

    By far the most difficult color to keep up on is black, so I'm asking all you men in black, or red, white, and blue on this 4th of July to tell us your favorite wax, polish or scratch remover. I personally have had great results with Meguiars products. I recently had to remove some scratchs on my rear bumper due to a neighbor's declawed cat. He decided to use my bumper as a "scratching post"

    This product worked way beyond my expectations!!! (Meguiars Scratch X)

    It should be endorsed by P.E.T.A. (People for the ethical treatment of animals) because it saved a cat's life!!!!!!

    I found that the new Turtle Wax... Clear... Synwax... works like a sharm... doesn't leave none of that white crud everywhere... and it comes out really nice... been using it for a while now... gonna wax it again today...

    Looks good...but requires applications every two weeks. Doesn't last very well.

    Good stuff indeed. One of my favorite products from Clearkote is their Red Moose Machine Glaze. Awesome stuff!

    I will NEVER use anything Turtle Wax puts out.
    Cheap products normally perform cheap.


    Last wax I used was Victoria's Concours. Holy shit. Worth the $50+ for 6 ounces.
    Pays to have a good base for the wax as well. Used Prima Amigo before waxing.

    You are one of the very few success stories I've heard of Meguiars Scratch X

    I've bought this stuff like 8 or 9 years ago. It didn't work for me then. It could've been not knowing what I know now about detailing that may have made the difference

    As far as my favorite polish, I have to say the Menzerna line is hard to beat from top to bottom, and that's all I use until I find and try something else better

    Can I wax on top of the liquid glass on my car, I never thought I could so never tryed, the previous owner claimed he put 12 coats of the stuff on and whenever I wash my car people ask what wax I used but have never waxed it in the 3 years I have owned it.

    I use the NXT syn wax. First aplication is a PITA but you can layer it. The Scratch X is worthless!!!!!!!! I used it with a buffer and didnt do jack shit!
