    Whats the difference between the two, and what would be best to use on a black car? Ive been using Gold Class for a while on my old car, but I applied a coat of NXT to it once after a wash, and it just didnt look as good. This was on a navy blue car.

    :dunno: Whatever looks best to your eyes. No one can answer this question except for you. NXT is more durable, if that makes any difference.

    Like Scott said, it would come down to personal preferance. But if i had your paint color, even with the added hastle of more frequent applications, i would use the Gold Class.

    Im probally gunna stick with the gold class. I just picked up an 02 Black Altima. The paint has seen better days however. It looks like its been run through the automatic car wash a few too many times. Im gunna have to take a day off and get rid of some swirl marks. Guess its time to buy a PC.

    Upgrade to the Meguiars 3 step in the red bottle or get bottles of fine cut cleaner, show car glaze and yellow wax FTW.

    Results are much better and it seems to last longer. I haven't done the fine cut cleaner/show car glaze/yellow wax to the vehicle I drive the most since Dec and it still is shiney (although not as shiney as it was in Dec but still above average) and beads up well and this is after being driven at least 250 miles per week all winter. Once this monsoon weather patch we are in passes in a week or so I will be doing a full detail on it and will post some pics again.

    Easy app, lasts at least as long as Gold Class.

    Honestly, if you want to stick with Meguiars, go with #80 Speed Glaze to polish and #21 Polymer Sealant to seal the paint. Definitely superior to Meguiars consumer line.

    i planned on getting #21 sealant. Ive been doing some reading on that. How often should the car be polished though?

    Am I using at least a decent products since I only do hand applications?

    No, not really.

    "Decent" is all relative of course.

    But #80 and #21 are going to be WAY better that anything in the consumer area. In both performance, and durability.

    I like NXT paste better than #21. NXT liquid is garbage.

    But 26 paste and liquid blow them both away.

    On black I'd go 80 and 26 paste over ANYTHING else listed here.

    By hand, you are probably better off using Meguiars red bottle consumer products (for polishing) since they are formulated for hand use.

    I found the NXT to be kind of streak prone on my wife's black car. Not so bad on my green car, but I wouldn't buy another bottle of it.
