What do ya'll use to polish/wax your cars?

I used to be a huge Zaino supporter but have now started detailing cars with Tropi-Care the stuff owns Zaino in every way, shape, and form that I've seen so far.

So what do you guys use?

i use the 3M swirl remover and paint cleaner, but i am gonna switch to a clay bar. I use that like twice a yr.

For polish i uses Meguiars show car polish and i use Mequiars Gold Glass Wax.....about every 3 mths.

Plus i wash it every wk with Mequairs Deep Crystal wash.

Gonna try the new Mequiars product line when it comes out

I've been using Meguiar's #7 show car glaze to polish maybe once a year, and #27 Yellow wax. I've recently switched to KIT wax, since it lasts alot longer (says up to a year) and is very easy to remove.

Here are some other recommendations:

Meguiar's plastic polish for plastic stuff (headlights, etc).
Meguiar's endurance tire shine
Eagle One Nevr Dull wadding for metals (rust removal)
Armor-all for trim pieces and dash
Rain-x or Eagle one glass cleaner (ammonia free)

It's sopposed to be good to clay your car, but I've never done it yet.

good call! i use the eagle one 20/20 glass cleaner as well, on my tinted windows. armor all detailers advantage on the dash/trim. castrol super clean tire gloss on the tires (doesn't leave spin off!) meguiars nxt tech wax and car wash. so far... this combo hasn't let me down! but, i'm always experimenting.
