You don't need any specific brands either. I wash my car meticulously everytime, and if need be, use a polisher, etc, then clay bar it, then wax it. After you clay bar, the touch is the greatest thing i've come to know in my life.... Smoother then greased glass!

I had my 91 repainted last March..... it'* got that "Factory Shine" right now
It cost me $2500 Cdn to have he completely repainted.... $2000 for the paint job and clear coating and $500 for several extra layers of clear coat.

Definately worth it...

my hood is pited to hell, and my two rear quarters are rusty..going to get a quote at my uncles dads body shop..hopefully he can cut me a deal!
My hood and front quarters have the swirl marks all over them...i wonder how great the 3M stuff actually works, and will dull whats left of the clear coat?
I agree with Jason on the clay bar. I bought one made by Mothers, it worked extreamly well, the paint felt like glass!
