    Will be ordering soon.
    I need to decide which of the two to get. Whichever I can find cheaper per ounce probably.
    Hit me with some of the links to Pinnacle and Victoria Red if you don't mind.

    These are some incredible products. Oh, and, by the way, show cars are never waxed, only polished.

    See ya,

    I disagree- many show cars I have seen have several coats of carnuba wax. Here is a Vette with 20+ coats of Pinnacle souveran paste wax.

    The car is beautiful. Not wanting to bust anyone's chops about it. I just know some guys that have strictly show cars and they tell me that wax actually dulls the finish down a little just from it's chemical makeup. Also, polish doesn't smear like wax does.

    Bottom line is everyone is going to use what they think is best for them.

    For polishers, you can get the Menzerna SIP (Super Intensive Polish) I have the German version (PO85RD3.02) it's a great polish and will work well on GM hard clearcoat finishes -FBodies, and Corvettes-
    This polish with practice can finish ready for wax
    Another good polish that is a great finisher is the new 3M Ultrafina
    To keep it simple, those two products plus your wax of choice will make you happy. Of course there are glazes, sealants that can be thrown in the mix, but they will alter your process...

    Another good polisher for hobbysts and to some Pros, is the Flex XC3401 VRG Orbital Polisher (Dual Action)
    I'll be getting one in not too long...
    Thanks for the info Goose!!! With out a doubt it was your Z06, and Mr. Luos's black Trans am that have me questioning the way Iíve been detailing.

    Once you've polished your paint, and I think yours is in good shape, just needs a quick polish, you can then apply wax or sealant. I have some XMT180 paste wax that would look good on white, as I have some sealants that will look good also

    Then you need a PC or rotary buffer, the proper foam pads, and Menzerna SIP and Nano. IMO.
