    Very impressed. It was lots of work, but wow it does a great job. I used it on my moms SUV. It was her mothers day present. Cant wait to use it on the SS.

    I use it from time to time and have a new set of the 3 bottles....it is good stuff...but Zymol looks just as good after just "one step" ( better IMHO) than using the Meguires 3 step and last longer....

    I am frigin wore out today from it lol..........took me 7 hours all together. Would be less on our cars cause my moms is a SUV.

    I will see which works best on the SS. Meguiars or Zymol. I hope Sarge is right about Zymol lol, less $$$ and less work

    I might try Meguiars paint cleaner and polish then use Zymol wax, since it seems better than the Meguiars wax. That might be the perfect combo

    after the Zymol wax I tried the lightly spray with water to buff for a even better gloss and it works !

    Try using the new Meguiar's NXT2.0 in the wax step.

    I have used this system in the past on my black eldorado. It came out nice but you are not kidding about taking a long time.

    Looks great Randy!!

    Going to hit up the T/A here soon as well. Doesn't need much work, just some touch ups.
    I used to use the Meguiars 3 step. Did it by hand. I would probably use the 3 step again...but with the PorterCable. Makes much easier work of it.
