Cool Meguires 4 step system pics

I have used Meguires gold class paste wax in the past, which is a good product.

I tried something different this time around.

started with mothers clay bar kit- about 1/2 the price as Meguires clay.

followed up with Meg'* paint cleaner - used cheap wool compounding pad

Meg'* polish cheap yellow foam pad

Finally Meg'* NXT gen wax 3M blue foam pad (for dark finishes)

all applied with a craftsman 10" orbital buffer modified to accept standard Velcro foam pads no nancy bonnets here. temp was temp was 50 with 15-20mph wind


my conclusion based on my car with no need for a heavy cut compound or a high speed rotary buffer. Meguires left a finish comparable to 3M or wizards products. for a lot cheaper $$
















I will do a more detailed step by step (with 3M products) on my trucks when the weather is a bit nicer, one is oxidized the other is covered in swirl marks.

You want to add a little nicer shine to that dark paint job? Add a layer of Megs #7 between the polish and the NXT wax.

wasn't at the shop to break out the high speed, but I have used the Meg'* machine glaze which is the bees knees for a deep wet finish
