    I like ULW. It's a pretty decent product. If you'd like to try something that'll blow your mind, try Duragloss 111. It's even better combined with the 601. I used to use ULW but recently switched to the DG. The gloss is insane.

    I used ULW as my first time waxing and liked it.

    My favorite is smart wax I try most on them because I wash car on the side after work. And smart wax leaves it the best. You just have to make sure you wipe it dry good after

    Just for your information-- Meguires #21 ("Mirror Glaze" line) is the pro version of NXT. It's essentially the same product but it can also be used with rotary polishers.

    This is Duragloss 111/601. I used Wolfgang Uber Rinseless concentrate mixed at the detail spray ratio today to amp up the shine. A really nice combo of products. This photo is unedited.

    Don't know I would call it a wax but I use Adams H20 Guard and Gloss. Apply after a wash while vehicle is still wet. Super easy to use and leaves a nice finish.

    Hey harpo, do you apply both with a DA or just by hand? I may try this next.

    101 is a stronger cleaner than 105. 105 is a much newer formula with better longevity and slightly less cleaning ability.

    111 is a pure sealant (no cleaning capability). To my eye, this one has the best appearance. I've not found a better product for light colored vehicles (white, silver, etc). Looks great on dark colors too.

    I apply by hand. I mix it 4:1 with DG 601 Bonding Agent (it extends the longevity). Super easy app and removal. The 601 isn't necessary, but I like using it.

    Ha Don't do that! 101 is still a nice product. It's a great all-in-one. 101 vs 105 is just a trade off- choose more cleaning ability vs more longevity.

    That's just the way it is with all in ones- they don't typically do any one thing extremely well. Rather, they do a mix of things so-so. Their strength lies in their doing two things at once, saving a step.

    That's a great tutorial. You won't need the 652 on a new truck. The 101 will be plenty.
