Cleaning the truck with this FW1 cleaning wax?

I bought this FW1 racing clean wax stuff while back but never used it on my old truck. Now getting a 2007 Tacoma...anyone have any advice on using this stuff?

Also, what do you use to detail the inside/dash?

Thanks

I have used it and am very happy about it. Does a great job and even repels dirt and break dust. works on windows too! no more nose prints from my dog.

I'd wash, clay bar, rewash, wax. I have no experience with that brand, but most cleaner waxes employ chemical cleaners to remove oxidation, sap, road grime, etc...while adding a protective layer of wax. Claybar first, then wax and it should be smooth as silk and look great. You'd be surprised at how much crap the clay bar will remove. I just detailed my truck for the winter, including clay bar, and I had tons of tar spots and sap... even though I clayed it 6 months ago. For the inside dash and plastics, I use Meguire's interior detail spray or Poorboys Natural Look(can be used on plastics, vinyl, leather and on interior or exterior) I apply the Poorboys with a microfiber applicator pad then wipe any excess with a microfiber towel to leave a non-greasy, non-shiny matte finish. wmb67
