Cool Time & Patience = Clean Car

Hi All,

Well if you guys have some time and patience do the 3 step waxing and you car will look great. I used the 3M Scratch/Swirl remover for dark paints, then went to the 3M Imperial Glaze, then onto the 3M Carnuba Wax. And WOW it looks great. It took about 4-5 hrs. But it was worth it. It has almost no swirls and scratches (still lots of paint chips ) And the paint luster is so deep. I wish i had this much time everytime i wax my car. But hopefully if you do this every now and then, you should be able to just do a quick wax and be set. Just thought i would let everyone know that these multi-step waxings work great...
