Default Best products for mirror finish

as we know i have this new truck that is bright red (victory red to be exact) and i want it to be the reddest red ever.

my question is what would you consider the best to get a showroom shine on a red vehicle? right now i plan on doing a wash but we have turtle wax car wash (id like to use something different there) i have mothers clay bar kit and maguires wax hand version and the cream version for a buffer wheel. any suggestions on something that can get a deep clean and really shine up and bring out the color + protect?

Try turtle wax products called Ice, with the black trim you can have a mess real quick. Ice is synthetic,no residue at all. Wash the truck with Dawn to clean it good,clay bar,then wax. Ice has everything start to finish,the spray detail wax works great on the trim,wheels.and jambs. Treat the windows with Rain-X and the whole truck will be a giant water beader.
