I've always had some sort of wax/polish on the paint, though -- but when I strip it down with dawn and clay it, you can tell the sun has taken its toll on the bright red.
This pic was taken recently after I stripped the wax, clayed the paint, and applied 1 coat of Zaino Z2. It's possible to get that wicked shine on this color without using electronics or machinery, even if you're in the Florida sun each day. Like the others said, it's a matter of prep work and how well you maintain the finish over the years. :waytogo:
The best advice I can give you is to watch the How to Use the PC for Showcar Results, which you can buy at www.showcargarage.com Its the best $25 a G100 owners can spendsputnik767 said:Kyle, can you give me some tips on how to use the G100? After doing my 3rd car, I have gotten better at it, but it still seems that I'm not getting the results I should. After using #83 with the yellow pad on my last car for example, the swirl marks diminished somewhat, but it seems that it should be better. This car was a 2005 model, so they were not bad at all to begin with. Any tips your can give me, such as how much polish to use and technique would be appreciated. Thanks.
I used Meguiars NXT tech wax after deep crystal 1 and 2 on a red civic and it turned out great. Won't last long though.RedRunner06 said:Whick type of wax would u guyz recomend for a red truck that sits out in the hot sun all day?:shrug: I want that wicked shine!
