    Since a lot of you have been asking when it will be on the website....

    I don't think the picture is up yet, but Carnuba Moose has been added to the order form.

    Carnuba moose is a wax...and you would use it as such, such as, inplace of the S100.

    Wrong!

    Carnuba Moose Wax and Moose Wax are not the same product.

    I agree the name is confusing (and IMO, the carnuba version should have a completely different name), but only Carnuba Moose has carnuba wax in it. The regular Moose Wax is a petroleum based wax with light chemical cleaners in it.

    I think it looks a bit deeper and wetter than S100. S100 is a bit brighter and a little more reflective. Since CMW is a liquid, it may not layer like S100 will, since liquids need carriers that may remove the old layer of wax. CMW can be applied with a PC much more easily than S100.

    Honestly, you'd be happy with either one-probably go with Carnuba Moose on flat colors and S100 on metallics.

    Metallics, I believe, have different coloured flakes in the paint. Look realllly close at a metallic car and you will see "flakes" of a different colour, especially at certain angles. My Prelude has a metallic black and has blue flakes in the paint.

    You're duplicating effort there. If you like the SMR + Final Polish combo, it would go like this:

    Wash
    SMR
    Final Polish
    Carnuba Moose

    can you put carnuba moose on first, then top with s100, or vice versa?

    Since Carnuba Moose is a liquid, I would use that first since the carrying oils may remove S100 if you use that first.

    cool.. do you think there's any benefit in doing this though? I have a 10 yr old metallic light blueish grayish car that I want to really shine, but can't seem to get there.

    here are some blurry pics:

    It's a little dusty right now, but can you tell me if that's metallic or not? May be difficult to tell with those pics though.

    Uh, thanks for posting all those huge pics. :ugh: My dial up modem thanks you.

    You may need to use a stronger polish before a glaze, maybe along the lines of Meguiars Swirl Remover.

    I use Vanilla Moose as my glaze and it looks real nice. In fact, I was detailing a black Mercedes CLK this afternoon (paint was in decent shape) and I had just gone over it with Vanilla Moose and the daughter of the owner of the car came outside and she stopped, stared at the car for about 20 seconds and said the paint looked like glass!

    Another excellent glaze to try since Meguiars #7 is very finicky, is Meguiars Machine Glaze #3 (don't worry, machine use is not necessary) or Meguiars Hand Polish. Both products leave a very wet finish to apply wax over and they are easier to buff off than #7.

    Yes, but if you have a local Meguiars pro distributer in your area they should carry it. Meguiars has a link for your local distibuters on their website at www.meguiars.com .

    Actually, you'd use both. Vanilla Moose first to clean and lightly polish the paint, then Carnuba Moose for protection. Basically, you'd replace S100 with Carnuba Moose. I'd wait until I was out of S100 though.
