Default Scratch-X

Meguiars scratch x is amazing.
I used it today on the blazer (cleaned the crap out of it, look for whorage in a few days) there were some pretty bad scratches all over the hood, kinda looked like bo and luke duke owned the car
So i bought some scratch-x, here is the results:

Is it a wax? Can it be used before or after Liquid Glass?

I've seen it before and have heard good things about it....

No its not a wax, you need to protect the paint after with a wax or sealant.
I would suggest a polishing compound after the scratch-x then wax to really make it pop

Looks good so far.

Looks great...unbelievably great. Sorry but I just don't buy those results. Those scratches look pretty deep and GM clear is one of the hardest clears out there. ScratchX is a great product but it doesn't work miracles. Maybe you topped the ScratchX with wax or something that filled the swirls/scratches? I am not trying to call you a liar, I just think you will be seeing those scratches again after a few washes. I hope not though.

i took the pictures directly after i used scratch-x and scratch-x alone. I didn't even wash it or anything.
All it was, was a towel, scratch-x and a little elbow grease.

Well in that case, GREAT job. I have only seen results like that from an ROB or rotary buffer. That is a very nice finish to be proud of. Wow.
