What kind of wax did you use? Hand or machine?

Looks great.

I use Pinnacle Paintwork Cleansing Lotion and then Blitz wax. All by hand.

Question Swirl marks

Do you get swirl marks? I find a good wax job helps but the damn clearcoat is so thin and cheap that I'm affraid of taking my baby to the car wash. All work is done by hand.

Looks nice!

Thanks. I have never gotten swirl marks. I use even pressure in a side to side motion. The cleansing lotion is citrus based and helps a lot.

Must have tiring arms after this 3 hour wax job by hand. Looks real shinny.

Hate to burst your bubbles but in a couple of days, all that beauty would be gone and your 3hrs would be wasted. hehehe But it does look very clean and shinny.

i normally use meguiars. i wash, dry, polish, and wax. and i get to enjoy the end result.
i bought a pink wax at the sf auto show, it is very easy to apply, and shines fairly well. its a wax i use when im lazy.

Wax contains abrasives thats bad for your paint. If you're serious about your car and want the best use this stuff http://www.zainobros.com

Yes its expensive but its not wax its car polish that wont harm your paint and lasts much longer than all others on the market. Works great for swirls and scratchs on darker cars.

Was it the wax on and wax off Miyagi style? I heard that works good from my buddy Daniel.
