    There is some guy with a British accent that has redone some of his infomercials. No originality: they use the exact same script; word for word!

    hey, its time to resurrect an old thread.

    I just got my truck. After washing it the first time, i noticed a bunch of scratches. I'm using quixx to fix the scratches. It works VERY well but is a lot of work.

    Is there a good wax that will remove very minor scratches such as swirl marks? Would a clay bar take care of this?
