    If you like S100, you will love Meguairs #16-same super reflective wet look but a lot more durable. Only problem is that Meguiars doesn't promote this product so it may be hard to find. Apply and remove the same as S100 and it even has a similar crayon smell. How I overlooked this product, I don't know. :uh:

    What do you think about Meguiar's #16 vs. Carnauba Moose?

    CMW has a deeper look...better on dark colors. #16 looks great on silvers, tans and other light colors. Both have pretty good durability.

    Follow the directions in the little booklet in the S100 jar. Very good advice.

    got to work, washed it up, claybar, started polishing the trunk... i had to do it section by section incase we got busy and i had to work... so just as i start to clay the doors i got called up, so it sat for an hour or so, then i finished claying it and then got some polish on the whole thing, finally waxed it with the s100 wax... i like it much better than the stuff we usually use, BC something or other. it goes on much easier and is fairly easy to get off.

    overall the car looks better, swirl marks are gone, but there is fine scratches that one guy said i could get off with some turtle wax color wax or something... i may have to get a try, sorry no pics til tomarrow its dark out.

    Turtle Wax Color is crap. Save your money. All it will do is temporarily fill them in. After a couple of washes, they will be back. Go through the product list for products that will remove instead of cover up.

    Looks pretty good but could you stand back a little farther? Not enough background in those pics! ;)

    the cameras view finder and screen show different images, so i just picked a spot in between when they were both just on the car... get over it.

    looks good for a 1997 that was never waxed until about 3 months ago

    In the close up pic of the hood are those little circular things on the actual hood or just fuzziness in the pic?
