First pics ill be uploading of my truck, figured this would be the perfect spot on the forum to do so. Got home last night after work decided to wash then clay bar my truck, sun went down so i didnt have time to wax. Got up this morning and put on a coat of NXT tech wax. Really wanted to polish then wax but again didnt have time so eventually i'll strip her down and do it all over again. Pic's taken with my HTC Evo so they arent the best.






Bought her last Monday and have put on 800 miles. Love it to death so much more fun than my F-150. :hi:

Nice Job..... Don't be in too much of a hurry to "Polish" with black. Just keep it waxed and don't touch, wipe, lean or dry wash it between real washes and you'll minimize spider webbing the clear coat.

Thanks guys, My neighbor mowed his lawn today and kicked up some dust so i hit it back up with some Quick mist detailer. I'll be holding off on polishing until it really calls for it, the NXT did a pretty good job making it shine.


americanskiff, looking good. I can't believe how much of a difference just using a clay bar makes.

Not trying to nit pic here but if everytime the neighbor kicks up dust and you wipe down.... You'll kill the clear coat. As much as you're trying to shine it, you're dulling it.

You have to have a hands-off with black. Only touch it to wash it/wax it......Also, only Dry it with a leaf blower

Yeah I know I noticed a little bit of spider webbing on the hood. I use the big blue towel to dry which is a woven microfiber. Hard not to touch it when I want to keep it clean so bad. Next time I wash I'm gonna use meguiars ultimate compound then wax then no touchie. That should correct the spider webbing

I dont know about there compound, compound may be to aggressive on such a new vehicle, but Mequiars liquid Cleaner Wax is a good product that removes/fills scratches. I use this alot on black vehicles. Then I use the liquid NXT polish

I called and asked meguiars about the compound they said it would be safe but recommended trying Ultimate polish instead as it would be less abrasive. They said ultimate compound should be a last resort so I'll eventually try the ultimate polish followed by either my NXT tech wax or Ultimate wax. Spider webs on my hood arent that bad and i guarantee most people wont even notice them. Only bad part is i notice them lol.

Yea I was concerned when you used the word "compound" :)

Ive never used there Ultimate wax. I just read the sheet on it and it appears to be alot like turtle Ice wax. Which is good for plastics, but I wouldnt want to wax a vehicle with it. Its to greasy for my likeing. I hope the Ultimate wax is not as greasy feeling.

I have allways liked the cleaner wax for removing all scratches and swirl marks. Expecially on dark colored cars. Followed by the NXT wax. Both are very easy to apply and remove.

Let me know how that Ultimate wax is...

will do, i'll be trying it in a couple of weeks after i get my new backing plate and pads in. I wanted a really wet look on my paint so ultimate polish followed by ultimate wax was recommended. I've always used NXT tech wax so I figured this time I'd dry something different and see how well it lasts.
