Scott, I notice that you seem to use more of cleakote's stuff than S100's.

    Is clearkote "The new hotness?" I've been looking and reading here and there the past two days because I really want to give my car a nice deep shine after winter is over (can't wait). From I gather, I would use:
    - Wash
    - Clay bar
    - Meguiar's swirl free polish
    - Clearkote's vanilla moose (maybe S100's Gloss-enhancing Paintwork Cleanser)
    - Clearkote's carnauba moose wax (maybe S100's wax)

    I have a 1999 Emerald Green Accord and just looking to see what product (clearkote or S100) would be better suited for a dark green car. Please let me know if I have the order wrong (or what you recommend).

    Any update on Meguiar's NXT products?

    Thanks for sharing your expertise. :)

    Is there any heavy swirling or scratching on your vehicle?

    Nope, just get the web look if I just wash and dry. They go away even if I use the quick detail spray.

    use either process. both will produce almost the exact same results.

    i prever the moose its more of a liquid liek shine where as the s100 is a hard more reflective shine depends on your tastes the s100 is a little easier to apply

    Right. Carnauba Moose has a deeper, more liquid look than S100, but S100 is more reflective. NXT seems to be a good comprimise, but since you have to wait 10-15 minutes before removing it, it isn't quite as easy to use. Poorboy's products are also good and a bit more durable.

    I get 3 months of beading with VM/CMW or VM/S100, don't know yet with NXT (still too new).

    So you guys dont recommand P21s paint cleanser? How is that compared to the Clearkote's vanilla moose?

    i use it, they are very similar from what I understand, both have a lot of oils and must be topped with a carnuba of some sort... honestly unless you are a seasoned detailer you will not notice a single difference between the two. its 90% method 10% product when it comes to detailing.

    Both are very good products, I just think that Vanilla Moose is a more versitile product since you can use it on the glass and hard plastic trim. It has a touch wetter look, too but if you have some P21S GEPC, I'd use it up before trying anything else.
