    Ardex car wash concentrate, washed with a mitt
    Ardex New Wave all purpose cleaner on the wheels followed by a quick 2 sec burst of hydrochloric acid to get the hard to clean areas clean of dust.
    Ardex "Claymore" fine clay bar
    Ardex All in One cleaner polish using a rotary at 1800rpm with green pad
    Ardex Topaz yellow carnauba paste wax
    Ardex solvent based tire shine

    Didnt come out too bad for an 18 year old 110,000 mile single stage factory paint job! :)

    Looks really good! Any reason in particular you use Ardex products? Just curious because that is a professional line most people don't know about.

    I do delivery prep for a local Ford Dealer and they have a contract with an Ardex supplier.
    It seems like pretty good stuff but I havent been able to compare it yet to other professional lines like Auto Magic.

    The nissan dealer I work for uses Car Brite stuff.

    I havent really used many products like VM, EX-P etc etc, but S100 is >>>>>>>> their "carnauba" topping wax. I'm positive its synthetic.. but its supposed to act like a carnauba.

    I'm willing to bet you'd be happiest with Meguiars Body Shop Professional line. Auto Magic and Ardex are geared more towards the high volume assembly line detailing shops.
