    this is after s100 cleanser and s100 wax. It isn't as brilliant as it was a year ago after having it detailed. I have no idea what they used. I think I need a polish to help the shine. I'm thinking of going with whatever the moose polish is. I am needing a wax that will hold up longer than s100. I was thinking about using ex-p and topping with S100, but may use #16 instead of S100. After about 6 weeks the water no longer beads with S100. :sad2:

    thanks for any suggestions.

    Looks pretty good but if you feel the shine isn't deep enough, you will have to use a stronger polish than S100 SEC. Vanilla Moose isn't a real strong product but its chemical cleaners are stronger than S100 SEC. In addition, you may need to clay the paint if you haven't in a while. Removing imbedded grit will noticably improve the shine.

    I've never clayed this car. But the cars I have clayed I had problems with the clay leaving marks on the car, even with a lot of spray. Are there any liquid cleaners that would have the same results as clay? Thanks.

    Only clay will work unless you prefer to wetsand. Clay Magic and the reformulated Meguiars clay shouldn't cause you a problem. In any event, any good polish will remove the clay residue anyway.

    Thanks for the info. I am thinking of trying the Griot's clay. I think it comes with the buffer kit I am looking at ordering.
