Which Wax

I am waxing my car this weekend... It has NEVER been waxed to my knoowledge... I would like you guys to suggest me some products that I can get at a local store around the area that isn't too terribly expensive.

I have a few scratches here and there but not too many. Clear coat is not too great. My truck is white and pewter. Thanks in advance...

By the way, yes I used the search function and I still wanted to do this topic. :p

Did You Use A Power Buffer?

I just applied a couple of coats of Meguiars NXT 2.0 to the Explorer. I'm really happy with the results. Works great on guitars too :)

Just curious. Sometimes I use a Power Buffer, and sometimes I don't.

That's what I Paid for the Explorer!!

While surfing I found this wax. I guess nothing surprizes(shocks)me much anymore. I have to think. What would buy the guy that uses this wax for Christmas? It's Candian dollars, so it would be more for American's.... So Does more money equal better Shine? Or better Prep better shine?

Absurd. There is nothing THAT magical about wax. Anyone who would spend that kind of money on wax is either Bill Gates, or mentally unstable.

What's funny I checked the "BUY NOW" button to see what it would cost in American dollars. Then empty my cart. And it's out of stock.
