    DACP with a polishing pad, #80 with a polishing pad, Poorboy's Polish w/carnauba and a polishing pad, #16 to top it off. :drool:

    #16 is my new favorite, been on my car almost 3 months and is still beading!

    I just got my #16 yesterday (along with a gallon of leaking Last Touch [Meguiar's is sending a replacement], gallon of APC, and gallon of #80). Can't wait to try #16 out this weekend and see for myself how it does against S100 :coold:

    :cool: I am glad I found it. Meguiars really should put more emphasis on it and make it more available.

    I was fortunate enough to find a Megs supplier within about 30 minutes of me and they keep #16 stocked. They say that it's a slow seller though but I don't know why.

    I love using it besides when I layer it a bit thick and removal becomes a pain. I'll be putting a layer of #16 over the layer of Natty's that's on car within the next few days. The durability of it has amazed me. I have a customers car that I wash every other week and it's had #16 on it since mid June and it's still beading like crazy.

    Weren't there some rumors it was going to disappear because of the new VOC regulations? :dunno:

    Yes, but when I was at Meguiars training center (the headquarters in Irvine), Barry Meguiar himself said #16 is staying. I'm guessing they will have to tweak it somewhat so it might be a good idea to grab a couple of tins before they do that, in case it alters the durability.

    :eek3: Well I am glad it is staying, but I think I will order a couple more tins to be on the safe side ;) Thanks for the heads up! :bigthumb:

    Yeah, I'm going to get 3-4 tins next time I am at my Meguiars distributor. My kids want a can too. Both really liked using it when they were helping me this summer.

    As long as i remember to do it a panel or two at a time, I love #16 :big grin:

    But if I forget and do the whole car at once, I curse that fucking wax... only because I can't blame myself, because I'm perfect!!

    I will probably be topping EX-P with this on the 350Z on thursday

    I have the AIO/SG coming in the mail. I thought 2-day air would get them here today in time for tommorow afternoon but it looks like they won't be here until Monday.

    I might take a day off next week to do them and I just ordered #16 from Autopia so that I can wax it next weekend. :bigthumb:

    Very similar to the others. All leave a clear, wet look on the paint. I'd say Natty's is the wettest looking though. I don't think it lasts as long as #16. Maybe you would like #16 in the winter and Nattys when it is warmer?

    I've actually put a layer of #16 over my layer of Natty's and my titanium grey finish looks great.

    2 tins should be enough to last a lifetime unless you're a professional like Scott. :o
