    Victorias red or yellow or both good.But not the best.That would be like me saying Megs is the best, it's purely one's opionion.There's Swissvax,Supernatural,Fuzion just to name a few that are better IMO.Most PRO detailers will agree Megs #26 will hold it's own to higher end waxes if the prep is done properly.For a meer fraction of the cost of boutique waxes.
    I'm not saying Meguiars is the ''Best" but it's hard to beat in the correct hands.

    These "over the counter" products work OK- like scratch X etc. but if you really want to get rid of scratches,swirls,oxidation-not just cover them up temporarily- then higher end products like Menzerna SIP, Menzerna Nano, Prima swirl, etc. teamed with the proper pad and buffer combo will yeild far better results.

    When I bought my car it had scratches all over the hood so I tried Scratch x and several other "over the counter products" but was never happy with the results and the scratches would often come back after washing the car. I started reading up on detailing and joined a forum. I purchased a porter cable 7424 buffer, pads, and after a few different swirl removers came across Menzerna- this stuff is AMAZING!!!! It is not cheap but if you want great results this stuff rules. After trying it my search was over.

    I didn't say over the counter products. I said there MIRROR GLAZE line.

    Where does your disappointment come from in there products?

    It was early for me.

    Victoria's is a very nice wax. Not as great as some of the designer lines, but compares nicely. Great depth to be had with it...which makes it great on darker colors.
    Depth is something I always felt Zaino lacked.

    Hehe...no problem.

    I agree on the Zaino comment. I used to always add a layer of Souveran (I never get that spelling correct) for that reason. It doesn't seem to make much different on the TropiCare, and I'm not sure if it's because the TC is better (IMO), or if it just doesn't play well with the carnuba topper...

    Hey luos, Have you tried Blackfire on your car? I think you would dig that if you like Vic's. I assume your using the Vic's red,have you tried the Yellow?

    No reason to try yellow....car is black.
    Yellow is for the lighter cars.


    And I have not tried BlackFire. Honestly, haven't done much to the car lately.

    +1 on the Menzerna. I've been using Pinnacle products for a couple years and they work great. Just got the Menzerna sip and Nano and I'm sticking with that. Personally I think Zano sucks.
