    Used Meguiars and wow!!!

    So, I bought Meguiars 3 step deep crystal system. I also did a little clay barring. And added another coat of NXT wax. I am impressed with the results. Here are some pics.

    And, no, the tread marks aren't mine. They're way too narrow.

    Black Magic Titanium Tire Wet Gel.

    Last time I applied it was about 3 weeks ago. The stuff really lasts.

    Primarily, that's what I was using the Clay Bar for.

    Yeah, I did just the right side and hood yesterday afternoon/evening. Might have the rest done early this week and then I'll take some pics. My car was already shiny but, you'd have to get right up to it to see the diff.

    I'll take some more pics anyways.

    Right. I will be changing that as soon as the front ones wear down.

    The 3 Step Deep Crystal System consists of the following: (pulled from meguiars website)

    Step 1 - Cleaner (Deep Crystal® System Paint cleaner, a non-abrasive paint cleaner, has been improved to deliver even stronger performance with no chemical odor. It safely removes road grime, surface contamination, light oxidation, swirls and light scratches to restore damaged and dull finishes. Prepares all paint finishes for polishing and waxing. For most effective cleaning, use with our Even-Coat Applicator and remove excess product with a Supreme Shine® Microfiber or Ultra Plush Super Terry)

    Step 2 - Polish (Deep Crystal® system Polish is a pure polish specially formulated for dark-colored cars. The formula creates a dazzling, high gloss finish by conditioning and nourishing the paint, making dark colors darker and eliminating fine hairline scratches for perfect swirl-free reflections. It is that extra step necessary to create the ultimate, wet-look show car shine. Apply with an Even-Coat Applicator and remove any excess product with a Supreme Shine® Microfiber for amazing results.)

    Step 3 - Carnuba Wax (In order to “lock in” and protect the eye dazzling finish you created with Steps 1 and 2 of the Deep Crystal® System, you need to apply a protective coating that will enhance and extend the perfect finish created by Deep Crystal System Polish. Our Deep Crystal System Carnauba Wax delivers durable, long-lasting high gloss protection with superb water beading action. Apply with an Even-Coat Applicator and remove residue with a Supreme Shine® Microfiber for dazzling results.)
