Alright here we go: I just bought a microfiber wash mitt and 5 16x16 microfiber towels for $26. These are the products I currently have S100 SEC S100 Scratch X 3M SMR Turtle wax leather conditioner Turtle wax vinyl conditioner Zaino Claybar Zymol Car Wash Microfiber mitt and towels 100% cotton towels. I have looked at your tl's that you have detailed and i am stunned. I dont know why I cant achieve the shine. First off, my car is 1 year old and has always been kept in good condition. I finally got Meguiars Scratch X to work correctly, and for some reason it gets rid of fine scratches but also the swirl marks. I have not used the scratch X on the rest of the swirls yet. At one point of time I want to start from the beginning. Is this basically what I do: First use dawn to strip wax? (or what else) Then use Zaino claybar, question is how do you use the claybar correctly if you do not have any lube, what lube can I use. Use Meguiars Scratch X on whole car (apply with cloth applicator and remove with microfiber towel) Then heres where the real questions are: After I apply the SEC, how long do I wait on each panel until I buff it off.(Im talking like time, seconds or minutes, I live in Florida so its always real hot) Ok now the car is super clean with no swirls and I just used the s100 SEC to give a polish, should I use the clearkote vanilla moose or no. Assuming we skip the vanilla moose then its time for S100. After I apply the S100 its hard to see on the black car and it does not really haze (am I putting on too little or just right). Then time wise, how long do I wait until I buff off that panel (time as in seconds or minutes). I think today was a failure cuz the car looks the same after the car wash and after the s100 process. I guess I buffed off the wax to early. Do I need to press the wax and polish on hard. By putting on multiple coats of caranuba wax does it enhance the shine? Lastly, When do I use the s100 SEC after I use it the first time? I cant thank you enough for the help so far. I hope you can answer all my questions and I think this will also be useful for others people knowledge. Also are any of the products I have bad or do i need to add some more. Thank you!
