    let's hear them. With a ton of options out there, what are some of the good ones?

    Edit: other tgan the canon powerball ones. I am referring to the kind you can grab at an automotive store.

    I like mequire's ultimate wash and wax. Does the trick. Same with turtle wax zip wash (I think that's what it's called)

    My go to wash and wax before discovering Chemical guys was Blue Corral wash and wax from Wally World (Walmart). They make two types, one has a lot of suds and one doesn't. They both clean very well without striping the wax but it is getting harder to find the one with a lot of suds. I like the suds one because it doesn't dry as quickly as the one without suds allowing me to wash the entire vehicle at once.

    Stuff is amazing when you think it can remove brake dust from wheels and that type of oily grime yet not hurt the truck paint nor strip wax!

    Suppose that's true with other brands of wash and wax as well.

    I use the two hand buffing action! A microfiber cloth in each hand.

    For a real intense work out don't follow directions with a paste wax like Mothers step 3 Califonia Gold Brazillian Canaunuba wax and let it set up longer than recommended. Then try to remove by hand! Lol

    I waxed the living hell out of it yesterday with a Meguiars buffer machine, and specific pads with their wax. Soooo shiny!
