I just got the Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0. I clay barred the whole car before I waxed it...but the combination of the wax and clay bar made my car as smooth and shiny as it has ever been.

I use Meguiar's Scratch X and then Tech Wax 2.0, but am wanting to try their Ultimate Compound Wax.

Tech Wax 2.0 is more like a sealant than a wax.

Also if you apply it and then leave it on for 20-30 minutes before buffing it off it will be stronger and last longer.

Huge fan of Liquid Glass, easy to apply and easier to get off. No residue and is safe on paint, plastic and glass!

http://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Glass-U...6823229&sr=8-1

It used to have a different product page on amazon with 55 5-star reviews. You can get it at Advance Auto Parts, don't forget to use a coupon!

Tech wax is what i use as a sealant, the last step when fully detailing, then i usually try and keep up with it using Tech wax...

Ditto, been using this for years on my Corvettes I had. Awesome stuff !!
I put it on with a Porter Orbital Polisher with soft foam pad and buff off
with microfiber covered polishing pad.
