    I just picked up a bottle of this and cant wait to use it later today....

    Anyone else use this Meguiars wax?

    Do I really wanna wax the WHOLE truck then buff off, or do a section at a time?

    I've seen that wax and have contemplated buying it... I use Meguiars Gold Class for the truck...

    I wax the whole truck and then buff off. Gives the wax time to dry... :D

    Yup, what Del said. I usually wax the whole vehicle, have an adult beverage or 2 or 3 or 4 and then wipe it down. The NXT stuff is the shit, easy on and easy off.

    I have used Tech Wax since it first came out.... I rub it on.... then wait about 15 minutes.... til it dries then take a cotton clothe and rub it off.... I used to have a maroon silverado and it really made the paint shine.... I put it on everything... chrome windows.... bumpers.... rims... exhaust tip... here is a pic...

    I use it and like it.

    I apply to the entire truck so i can't change my mind. Wait about 15-30 minutes and take it off.

    Probably takes me longer to apply than remove, due to taking care not to hit the rubber and plastic trims.

    If i have time and any ambition left after removal, i will do the inside of the doors and the rims after. Try to at least catch those every other wax.

    ...used it about 4-5 days ago in 37 degree weather...

    This is hands down the best wax I have ever used. A bottle will last you a loooong time! Wax the entire vehicle and then wipe clean. Use very sparingly and apply with the included pad. I use cloth diapers to "buff" it clean. The adult beverages really help out as well. Do not get this wax on black areas, such as mud flaps, rubber trim, etc. It will not come off. Good luck....it'll look great when your finished!:D

    Good to know -- what I don't like about the gold class is that it's hard to get off... I know a guy that waxes with Rain-X first, and then gold class because it makes it easier... :laugh:

    So I went out today and bought a whole line of detailing supplies, by Meguair, heard it was good stuff. My truck is really starting to look bad so wanted to make sure I do this in the right order.
    1. Wash
    2. Clay Bar, road gunk removal
    3. Scatch X, Are you suppose to put this stuff all over like wax?
    4. NXT 2.0 Wax

    Please let me know if that sounds good, i will post before and after pics to.

    You need to wash after the clay bar and no, the Scratch X isn't meant for putting over the whole truck, just the spots that need it.

    Sorry I'm late to the party! lol

    NXT 2.0 gets very good reviews for an over-the-counter (OTC) wax. It's important to remember that when applying ANY wax or sealant you apply a thin coat. Thin is in when it comes to waxing/sealing. If you apply to much product, it takes longer to dry and it's harder to remove.

    It's best to apply NXT to the entire car and wait for it to haze over. For those in humid climates, this hazing process will take longer. When you think it's hazed over, perform the "finger-swipe" test to make sure before starting the buffing process. If you "swipe" your finger over the area and the residue comes off streak free, you're ready to buff off the rest of the residue. If it smears, it's not ready to be buffed off yet.

    timinco77 - ScratchX is a polish. Polishes need to be worked into the paint with some "passion" (ie - elbow grease). ScratchX (and other polishes) will look like a creme when first applied, but after you work it into the paint, it should turn translucent. This means the abrasives in the polish have broken down and you're ready to buff off the residue. Polishes don't need to sit on the surface like a wax. Just polish, remove, and move to the next area.

    Here's some good reading material for polishing by hand:
