    i'm looking to get the stuff ready...

    by your experiences, what works best (polish, glaze/sealer, wax)

    his paint's in pretty good condition so i think i'd probably use AIO.

    recommendations?

    and if you paint is in pretty good condition, would you use the yellow, orange, or white lake country pad with AIO?

    since this forum has been slow as ass...i've read up on autopia.org.

    i've decided to go with Klasse AIO and P21S carnauba. i still have some Meg's Speed glaze and i'm wondering if i should use it.

    can anyone recommend to me what pads i should use?

    Uh...duh? I detail cars all day.

    In any event, telling someone else what is 'best' is difficult because not everyone has the same idea of what is best. To some, it is the longest lasting product, others like a real rich, wet look and others like super sharp, mirror like reflections.

    On your color, I'd go with Jeff Werkstatt's Prime and Acrylic Jett. Prime is similar to AIO and AJ will look better and last a lot (and I mean a lot!) longer than S100. www.jeffswerkstatt.com

    Hey Scott - is that your winning combination for a high-gloss, long-lasting shine on a pearl white paint? I have a 2005 Acura TL and the Werkstatt stuff looks like it will do a great job.

    I detailed my new white Toyota 4Runner. This was before the Werkstatt craze. I used AIO and 4* UPP. I was pretty impressed with the results.

    Seeing some of Scotts work with the JW line is tempting me to get some. After I go through the tons of other stuff I have.

    I know how you feel. I really like FMJ after trying a sample and want to try Meguiars #21 too but I just have so much stuff right now.
