    i have a 99 malibu with 90000 miles, and i think it looks pretty good still. its a weird metallic grey/green color....i really hate it and i think its a bitch to keep clean...

    anyways...ive always waxed it with a 10 " (i think) orbital power waxer with some turtle wax crap from autozone...but im up to trying something new, something over the shelf that is found at most auto stores

    it was a few scratches and alot of swirls on it that id like to try to remove. then i want a good wax for this specific color..do metallics matter?

    anyways..heres the color....

    Been awhile since I've been in Pepboys or simliar to shop.

    Most products from 3M and Meguiar's Pro line are pretty good. Meguiar's has a few new lines out that I'm not familiar with though. The ones I remember are Meguiar's #9 SMR and 3M's SMR.

    For a wax just stick with the major brands. Think you can get Meguiar's NXT locally and it seems a lot of people like them. Mother's has some nice waxes and the ones from them I've used have been pretty easy to work with.

    If you have a lot of swirls, they are going to be hard to remove by hand with retail level products. Meguiars Speed Glaze #80 or Poorboy's SSR2.5 are products you can order on line that are about as aggressive as you can use by hand.
