What a shine! Thisdude_05, what products?

I've admired the shine on your car since I first saw it . What products do you use?. I use Eagle Nano Wax with a micro-fiber applicator and towel and it does't shine like yours.

I've always used Meguiar's "The Gold Class" Clear Coat Liquid Car Wax. After a nice wash of course, I just apply it in a circular motion with a Meguiar's Soft Foam Applicator Pad that comes with the wax. Then I take it off with a Meguiars Microfiber Towel. Same way everytime. You can buy the whole kit at Walmart. I don't remember what it costs...

if you want to go hard core. try clay barring. first use dawn to strip all the old wax off, then claybar to smooth the surface the do a polish then the gold class wax. i've had great success with the meguires product. the NXT tech wax leaves a great wet look too. it'll especially pop on your blue car. it makes my silver really stand out! a good multispeed orbital buffer is a must!

When i first bought my car i used a steam cleaner on the engine

and water got into my tachometer. well the engine kept sputtering out after

words,the only way to use a steam cleaner is to pull the entire block out

i was wondering how u 2 clean your engine
