Good wax/polish?

I want Gigi to really sparkle, what can I use that is not too expensive and lasts a long time?

this is what i do and i get very impressive results....on a black truck too
first rub on some scratch out then buff it off by hand ....wax on wax off style lol
then rub on some Zymoil (blue bottle at walmart for about 13 bux) then buff it off with a buffer ...otherwise get out the elbow grease
ur car will shine for weeks as long as the weather permits
then if need be just simply rinse the car off the wax is still there
good luck

Wake up and smell the Taco

If your car, go with what others are saying. A good wash, wax job. After that, you can just rinse her good to get the basic dirt off and then use a shammy (can't spell it) to get her dry with no spots. I'd recommend rewaxing every month or two to keep it top notch.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.
