Default best otc polish to use

Did a quick search but nothing came up (I'm on my phone)

Just wanted to hear suggestions on good otc polish.

I picked some up this weekend, it was nucare (sp?) It was in a bright orange bottle.

Was easy to use and seemed to work well... I topped it with two coats of collinite 845 and it gave me a great deep clean and wet paint look.

Any suggestions on polishes to use?

Meguiar's Ultimate Polish and/or Ultimate Compound works for me. Use the least aggressive one to do your particular application to test it out first.

....I would have to agree with Ken. Meguiars UC (if needed) coupled with their UP or Swirl-X for finishing. I was pretty impressed with how well UC actually finished via DA considering it's corrective ability, although it does leave some noticeable hazing (to me at least) when used by hand. In either case, I would still follow up with a finishing polish.

If you live in Florida,love bug season is just starting, and I have found, using ICE paste polish, makes cleaning them off easy. You can also apply it to plastic parts, and I put it on the windshield,clean-up with a damp microfiber towel.

Meguiar's Ultimate Compound and Ultimate polish are the best OTC polishes. Not too expensive and they are basically reformulated products from their pro line of polishes so that it's easier to use for hand application.

You're going to LOVE this stuff -

TR*3 Polish & Cleaner


The packaging and label will scare the crap out of you thinking you're messing with stuff that will Annihilate your paint but have no worries, TR*3 cleans and oxidates your paint like the day it was driven off the lot.
