Lack of selection

Discussion in 'That'll Buff Right Out' started by CoNfUzEd ChIlD, Sep 6, 2004.

  1. I just purchased a 2004 Honda Accord in Desert Mist Mettalic (a beige/gold type of colour). No dealer prep and it has about 100 km. A little brake dust but nothing major.

    I'm not sure what products to use; living in Canada I really don't want to buy products online since i'll probably have to pay duties.

    What I have locally availble is: Zaino (premium $), Meguiars consumer/pro lines (but difficult to find), Eagle One, S100.

    I'm thinking two coats of of NXT and one coat of S100? Or should I just ante up for the the Zaino package? Everything is gonna be applied by hand btw.

    I think you will be impressed with NXT topped with S100.

    Do you have the rest of your products already?

    NXT topped with S100? Two carnauba products? Don't you think that's a little duplication of effort?
     
  4. I thought NXT was a synthetic wax like Meguiars Gold class?

    The only reason i'm considering topping with S100 is for the extra durability and everyone else reccomends it.

    NXT is a synthetic, I don't believe Gold Class is though, not sure. I would skip the NXT and just use S100. Personally, I don't use any of those products.

    ummm, NXT isn't Carnauba, it's a sythetic sealant. I wouldn't go with more then one coat of NXT just because in my experience I haven't seen a noticeable difference. I think you'll like the finished product once you top it with the S-100. Enjoy and make sure you post pics.
     
  7. Would you suggest using Meguiars #16 then? Because S100, NXT, and #16 are the only waxes I can get easily from your suggested list.

    It's synthetic, but I don't know about being a sealant. It only lasts like 2 months!

    You will need (at least at some point) a dedicated swirl remover like Meguiars #9, #82 or #80. NXT is a good product IMO, I get decent durability out of it. You may want to order some Meguiars #16 Pro Paste Wax instead of S100, similar cost and appearance but #16 is way more durable.
     
  12. I just got lucky and picked up Meguiars #16 in an asian mall. It was on clearance but still cost $20 USD . Since I have all 3 products now S100, NXT, and #16. Is there a certain order I should use them in for best "liquid" look (not neccasarily using all of them either).

    Scott: I'll get a swirl removal after the nice salty Canadian winter passes. BTW is there a major difference between Meguiars cosumer line vinyl/plastic protectant and the professional line equivalent?

    No major difference in the vinyl/plastic protectant.

    Just use NXT and #16. You can top with S100 but I don't know how much it will increase the shine since it and #16 are very close in appearance. Let NXT cure for a full 24 hours before putting anything over it.
