Sometimes I just feel like a challenge...

Every once in a while, I like to challenge myself. Not that I'm bored or anything, it just spices things up a bit

I hear people all the time on this and other forums, that they can't do this or that because they don't have product X or Product Y, yada yada yada. So this is for you guys!

I completed this Explorer with nothing but wax! Yes, thats right, only wax. From start to finish, every step was completed with only using Meguiar's PRC 151, only the tool and pad changed.

1st step-Purple Foamed Wool on rotary
2nd step-Meg's yellow foam 2.0 on rotary
3rd step-Megs yellow foam 2.0 on DA

3 steps, 2 pads, 2 tools and only 1 product

Before...

Someone needs to stop using the foaming brush at the car wash....
and I wouldn't call 151 a "wax" exactly. It has a great cut for an AIO polish/wax.
Here's a shot I did with 151 and a black foam pad on my Flex on an F150 door after a horrible buff job from a really tired guy with a wool pad on a rotary.
PS readers.... Im in Tulsa, OK so please, this is not a solicitation of services.

Depends on the vehicle. Best if you just give me a call and we can go over all the different options.
