    Check out meguiarsonline.com.

    Or this is how to do it.

    1. Wash car. I use a micro fiber pad. Rinse
    2. Claybar the car. I like to use fresh clean car soap. Its a better lube.
    3. Rince/dry
    4. In the shade start waxing. Use a good cleaner wax. It pulls out more dirt.
    5. Use a sealer/glaze wax.
    6. And last a wax/carnuba or your chioce brand. I like mothers or meguiars.
    7. To remove use a micro fiber towel or a oribital buffer with terry or micro
    fiber bonnet.
    8. Use a micro fiber towel with quick detailer. DONE.

    Any items can be found at any automotive store. Pepboys and autozones has a good selection of stuff.

    I got the mothers showtime cleaner and the carnauba cleaner wax. I still need a sealer/ glaze wax? if so which one?

    I've used mothers, mcguires and used to think they were the sh$%....but then I tried Zayno Brothers wax...beats them both hands down....and if it's a dark car...wow!! Makes it look like it's got a show car paint job! Plus it's easy to go on and you can put it on even in the sun!!! NOTHING compares to it!!! I had heard about it before and I am not the type to use "snake oil"....but I kept hearing about it and finally purchased some and used it on the wife’s car first......I was like my god!!!! The shine is unbelievable!!! I have a silver car and it just gives it such a deep shine......the more coats you put on the deeper the shine!!! And when I say easy to use.....it's easy to use..........I have a garage full of Mcguires and Mothers products that is just sitting there......this stuff has no equal....you have to purchase it off line....do a google search for it......trust me.....you wont be dissapointed! Hell I'll go so far as to say if you didn't like it I'd buy it from you!!!

    If you're talking about Zaino Bros.....it is awesome!!!! Use is and you'll see where your money went......I have no stock in the company....I just like a good product.......I was a diehard user of the other products and wouldn't just put anything on my car........that's why I tried it on the wifes car first......for us military guys it's like putting wax on our boots....the more you use the better it looks.......
