Z6
Z2 Pro with ZFX again
Z8 - Grand Finale Spray Seal

And I use their Z10- Leather in a Bottle Leather Conditioner for my interior which I can't say enough about..it smells amazing.

If you have a dark color car I would also add in Z5 -Show Car Polish for Swirl Marks and Fine Scratches or substitute it for Z2...on my black camaro I simply used Z5 instead of Z2 in those steps.

They also have kits on their site that include a bunch of those and different ones as a package.

All the info you will ever need to know on how to apply it, and how to achieve the best results can be found on their site..it is VERY informative and a must read if you want to achieve the best.

thanks! my park avenue looks about the same color as your bonneville, so ill probably give the z2 a shot. do you have to wash the car again at all between any of those steps like you do for some polishes? or is it just one after the other?
i really want to try this stuff it sucks that winters pretty much here already in MN, i might have to wait til spring

Before doing ANY polishing (which is the foundation of your shine) you should use a clay bar when you HAND wash your car (using 2 bucket method), to remove all the contaminates (stuff flying in the air, kicked up by tires, etc.) from your paint. It'* a process but well worth the time. Once you clay, you then have the surface ultra-clean which will really bring the bling!

Ohh yeah I do that every single time I wax the monte. I'm pretty good at detailing cars but I just wasn't sure about that stuff. I never ended up trying it since I was hearing that it does great for about a week. I really gotta find something to help my trim around the windows. It'* kinda getting dull =(

I've used the Black Box on my Grand Cherokees. Does pretty good at hiding blemishes like light scratches and minor road rashing. I've got some pics kicking around I'll try to load em up onto my photo bucket.

Honestly though I didn't see any real wowing "pop", and it also doesn't seem to last very long. I'm with Dan on the Meguiars wagon. Been using it for years and have always prefered it over any Turtle Wax products.

As far as trim restoring, such as the black exterior trim around the windows I use "Showroom New Restorer". It worked great for me on window trim, Jeep fender flares and the like.
