    I did use the same as gohawks but made the change just a coupe weeks ago to a complete Zaino kit. I haven't had time to do it since I just pulled the car out but will be doing it this week. Ill post before and after if I can.

    Re: Wax!

    I have been a car detail nut case since my first new car in 1972 and I have been through most of the best polish brands over those years. From 2005 to a year ago I was using all of the Zaino products and found them to be excellent. Last January when I got my 2012 CTS Sport Wagon I decided to give Adams Polishes a try and havent looked back. These are some of the best products I have ever used and they have great support through a very active fourm site as well. They have a full line of products for both machine and hand polishing methods. Here is a link to their website:
    http://www.adamspolishes.com/
    They rotate the cars that show at the top of their website, and my car is one of the few they used quite often.



    The bottom line is that there are many great products out there, and all of the suggestions that have been mentioned by other fourm members all work very well. I'm in a Adams kick right now because they have everything you could ever use and their products and support are second to none.

    Re: Wax!

    Collinite 845 insulator wax.... been using it since 1973 (likley long before most of you were born). NXT is also fine but does not last that long.

    Re: Wax!

    Used the clay bar system before waxing, was definitely worth it. Destroyed two blocks getting the environmental damage off of it. Made the car smooth as a baby's bottom....

    Re: Wax!

    Griots products for me with clay bar once a year.

    I agree, having a cold beer, car wash and wax = very relaxing. My neighbors think I'm nuts- maybe they are right.
