Haven't had time to wax my commuter car since fall, today kentucky's crazy weather warmed up to mid 50's. Purchased some cheap Meguiar's "The Gold Class" paste wax. This cars paint I'd rate it a 5 or 6, mostly due to nicks in the paint and some swirl marks. Previous owners just did mechanical maintenance and ignored paint. I now have 143,000 miles on the car, its in great shape minus the paint. Started by a low pressure wash to knock off the dirty/salt. Then hand washed the car. Applied two coats of the wax, wax on wax off, it's not very easy to remove. I'm pretty impressed pretty good for 10 dollars I'd rate it a 6-7 out of 10. The sun went down early so the pics are so so.
