    Here is the hood right after washing with QEW. Nice shine and reflections for a 17-year-old single stage paint job last polished and waxed in mid August:

    This is after going over the hood with Clearkote's Vanilla Moose. Shine and clarity have improved noticably.

    Now after applying NXT Tech Wax. Gives even more wetness and a silvery shimmer:

    Now on to the Oddessy. Here is the pic I took this past August when I sealed it with Winner's Choice Polymer Finishing Creme and Clearkote's Carnauba Moose:

    I believe this is about as far a comparison as you can get since the lighting and location are the same (or at least as close as humanly possible given a 5 month time span!). This is with just NXT Tech Wax:

    glide-that is all I have...and for right now, it appears photohost.org is taking a dump, so I couldn't upload more if I wanted to right now. For some reason, every once in a while, photohost.org freezes up for about 30 minutes. :dunno:

    WOW. Difference is night and day.

    Would you recommend NXT over S100 or CMW?

    Actually, you might want to use NXT then top it with either S100 or CMW.

    Meguiars considers NXT an LSP (last step product), so it would be your final step. If you were to top with a carnauba, I'd wait 24 hours for NXT to cure because I have noticed a few hours after you apply it, the look and slickness improve.

    It will run $14.99 if I am not mistaken.

    I'd have to see it to give you an accurate estimate, but depending on the condition, between $60 and $90. Lower end if just a wash, glaze and wax are needed, towards the upper end if you need heavy polishing, swirl removal, claying, etc before waxing (price does include vacuuming the interior, cleaning the windows and dressing the tires).
