Ok, so my g/f's sister just got a car. A '99 Beetle . I know, I know [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-nono.gif[/IMG]. It's black. Exterior is in pretty good shape. NO dings, but lotsa little scratches and swirls. So I volunteered to wax it up and make it look all nice for her this weekend since she just got her license. My thoughts were to do the following:

Clay Bar it
Then use Meguiar's Scratch X on the whole car
Meguiar's Deep Crystal System Carnauba Wax (Step #3)

my questions are...

Should I go with the #6 Swirl Remover instead of the Scratch X?
And should I do the Gold Class Clear Coat Wax instead of the Deep Crystal System Carnauba?

I want something that'll last considering she won't be taking as good a care of the car as, say, I would. And I don't want to have to do this for her every month.

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions would be great!
