    So.. Say I polished and waxed a few weeks ago. I want to try that Vanilla moose stuff, but there is already a coat of wax on there. Would i have to remove that wax somehow to use the Vanilla Moose?

    No, just use it on top of the wax. It will remove what is there, but Vanilla Moose does have wax in it, so you can top it or leave it as is. I think you will really like the look of Vanilla Moose on blue.

    Even though VM has some wax in it, it's advisable to wax again with the S100 after applying it. There's not really enough protection there to warrant using it by itself, I don't think.

    I think i'm gonna wait a few weeks anyway. at that point, most of the wax should be worn off anyway. :o

    Yeah, the S100 lasts about 3 months.

    Actually, it has the same wax in it as Clearkote's Moose Wax, which is good for 90 days. I know on a black Ford Expidition that I used only Vanilla Moose on, it was beading nicely after two months. I don't know how much longer it would have beaded since the lady who owns the Expidition has it waxed every 2 months.

    Still, the combination of Vanilla Moose and S100 is amazing enough that it is worth using both products.

    IIRC, I keep seeing VM, Final Polish, then S100 over on autopia, what is (who makes) final polish, etc?

    I wouldn't use the VM, then the Final Polish. It's kind of redundant, don't you agree, Scott? While the Final Polish is a sealant, it has the same polishing properties as the VM. As soon as I run out of the VM, I'm switching to Final Polish.

    I forget who makes it, do a search, a link has been posted here a few times showing where you can buy it.

    I wouldn't necessarily say it is redundant since polishing twice will add shine and depth and VM is slightly more aggressive anyway. If you don't have time to do a 3 step process though, you will still be really happy using either one and topping with S100.

    Well, I polish every 6 months simply on a "maintenance" basis. I find that either one (haven't used the FP yet, just VM and #7) would work interchangably for my needs. I sometimes overlook the fact that I have different needs than other people, and onlt speak on a personal level.

    I didn't know that VM was more aggressive, though.
