    This is one of five vehicles I did for a customer this week. Car had lots of water spots and fine scratches.

    Meguiar's Shampoo Plus Wash

    Meguiars' Clay Bar

    (While washing.)

    Meguiar's #9 Swirl Remover 2.0
    (EDGE 2000 Yellow Pad at #5)

    Meguiar's #7 Glaze
    (EDGE 2000 Blue Pad at #3)

    Meguiar's #26 Yellow Wax
    (2 coats allowed to dry 30 minutes per coat)
    (Edge 2000 White Pad at #3)
    (Removed with MF bonnet at #5)

    WOW!
    I've heard of #7 being hot but man, it with #26, deep and wet. I'm even wondering why I would leave Meg's behind....ever.

    Layed it all out....LITTERALLY!

    Awesome work as always. :bowdown:

    Its great that you love #7. I always found it finicky to work with.

    Do NOT let #7 dry. This is a major key.

    Thanks man...

    Im jealous....i want those Meguiars bags. :lol:

    #7 is good stuff, but you definately dont want to put it on thick, or let it dry. But if you work it out, to the point thats it almost completely gone, it can give amazing results.

    If you love #7, you will love #3 or #81 even more. ;)

    Really beautiful job on that Viper, looks like you are getting to do some serious cars now. :)

    Didn't know you were into Meg's stuff that much Scott.

    Thanks man

    For the first several years, I only used Meguiars products. Still use #83, #80 and #16 a lot, plus NXT and I love the Interior Quick Detailer.

    #3 is Machine glaze, much easier to remove than #7, #81 is basically #7 but meant for clear coats instead of single stage paint. Also easier to remove than #7.

    I actually like #5 better than any of those three (3, 7, 81).... I seem to get more consistent results with it... 3 and 7 streak like crazy for me, and 81 usually mutes the color way too much.... :dunno:

    Apologies for bumping an old thread.. in Oz we can get the #7 but not #3 or #80/81/83.

    Is #7 still suitable for cars with a clear coat? (Nissan Skyline R33). Aside from being a bit finnicky to work with it sounded like the way to go, until I read this post..

    That Viper looks stunning! :cool:

    Thanks man....!
    I actually just waxed this car on Friday as a follow up.
    #7 is very much made for clearcoats.....gives a depth like no other!
    Just do one panel at a time and work into the paint untill it's about clear.
    Send us some pics bro!

    Looks great, but it isn't a 2003. 2002 was the last year for the Gen II body style. ;)
