    I waxed her up on about the 3rd day lol!! I used Meguiar's cleaner wax, it drys fast and doesn't create that dusty powder when you wax off.

    Mojo wax with UV protection, great for keeping the color from fading! Beautiful shine, brings out the pearl finish!

    Did a wash and wax with Meguires.

    I'm curious about the Opti-Coat. Seems like good things online, just need to find someone local who can do it.

    Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 Permanent Paint Coating FREE BONUS

    Apparently lasts longer than the paint. Never need to wax again, just a one time application.

    Washed, sealed, waxed, and polished my C yesterday. Looks beautiful.

    I used Chemical Guys soap, Jetseal 109, Carnuba Butterwet Wax, and polish.


    Also has anybody else noticed swirl marks on the rear spoiler? Mine weren't too bad and most of them waxed out but I saw some at the dealer's that looked awful. Maybe it's how they were packaged or shipped?

    Hello:
    I was wondering which Meguires you used. I know they all perform real well, but lately I am having pretty good results with the Ultimate Quick Wax.

    What was sitting around the house. Didn't want to burn up some Griot's if I get that Opti-Coat stuff done.

    Read the can or bottle and check for UV protection so colors don't fade!

    I detailed cars for years do not use this opti-coat product it reminds me of a product someone tried to push on us and it is problems waiting to happen. It looks like shellac when done and prevents your paint from breathing,( I know it sounds odd) eventually it will crack from heat. I use meguires gold class carnuba plus. After application you can use a microfiber towel and dust down your car everyday before heading out and it will stay smooth and clean. I do recommend using clay to remove bugs instead of a bugsponge to prevent scratches.
