Any thoughts on which I should top it with? My sealant will be Klasse sealant glaze.

Meguiars Gold wash
Mothers Clay Bar
Poorboys SR2 for polish
Klasse Sealant Glaze
Top with a Wax
Ultimate Quik detail between washes.

My concern is that if i want to reapply another coat of Klasse, I'll have to strip the wax off. If i have klasse only, I can spritz the car with klasse/quik detail solution and re seal it quickly.

1st world problems! =(

If you are able to put 2 to 3 coats of Klasse on first I wouuld go that route. Klasse is top shelf product. Megs makes fine waxes you should look at #26. I did not see a #16 listed on Autogeek.

#16 was their original wax that the u.s. banned because of voc's. Only available outside of the us

"Green" cleaners

Any recommendations on biodegradable/"Green" washes? I live right next to a stream, and anything that comes off the truck is going to run into the water eventually. Would prefer to not kill off anything...

Has anyone with a non-black vehicle used the Turtle Black Spray Detailer? I read somewhere online that it can be used on black, charcoal gray, and dark grey metallic vehicles, but I don't know if I want to try it on my MGM.

The product has no idea which color it is being applied to, however, If you are looking for an effective OTC detailer you might want to try Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Detailer, Mothers Showtime or Duragloss Aquawax. I believe those are of better quality that the TW offerings. Just an opinion, take it for what it's worth.

So, after reading this thread, I decided to give some love to the 07 Accord we just bought. Stopped down at the local Advanced Auto and purchased a few items. First item was Meguiars Polish. The second item was a product Meguiars came out with to attach to a drill. It basically makes a drill, a high speed buffer. Now I'm not sure how close it is to the real thing, but, it sure did do pretty well. After I polished it, I waxed it with Meguiars Gold Class wax. I think it turned out pretty well. I'll know more when I get the car into sunlight. Any thoughts on the apparatus hooked to a drill?

Be very carefull. It is easy to burn the paint using a drill buffer. It is very hard to control the RPM of the drill head. Also it does not leave a lot to be desired with control over the pad as you work in the paint surface.

I would try some 303 Aerospace Protectant on a soft cloth using my index finger on the rubber using a fair amount of pressure. The marks almost looks like a stain or a fungus type growth that has died off.

Does pollen bury itself in wax? I waxed my truck a couple weeks ago and yesterday when I washed it I noticed it was really rough. I don't think it would have been anything else

Did you claybar it beforehand? Might have already been in the surface but the waxed evened or "disappeared" or something... Hell, I did the same with Meguire's NXT 2.0 and it felt good at first, but that wax really sucks and a week later you couldnt even tell it had been waxed - I noticed after a rain when there was no beading and when I ran my finger over the hood/sides/all over, it felt as if there wasn't any on there at all...

I have never had a wax NOT bead up a week after using it and when rubbing my finger on the surface it gets that squeaky sound like when it is untreated. That was the first time I used any Meguire's product - and will be the last, too. Hell, Turtle Wax Ice at least beaded up a couple of months later! On to a search for a better product!
