    anything i dont have i am willing to buy

    on another note, one of my less than intelligent friends left all his shit in an unheated garage all winter and his 2 gallons of ONR froze, is it ruined or still good?

    I'm really liking Meguiars NXT 2.0

    It's gotten some really good reviews from others on here. Used it on my wife's red car a few weeks ago and it turned out great. Stuff is holding up nicely too.

    NXT 2.0 is insane on reds, blues, and yellows. Well.....just about any color.

    I'm serious guys.......
    I would put this stuff up against any 100.00+ wax.

    ONR shoud be fine, but you might want to contact Dr. G at Optimum to make sure.

    My favorites on red are Clearkote's Carnauba Moose, Pinnacle Souveran and Meguiars NXT2.

    BTW, Opti-Seal works well over all three if you give them a 24 hour cure time and a wash before application.

    I do like Souveran on red but I've found Pinn. Sig. Series II to do well also.

    I would also pick up some of 3M's Ultrafina SE from a local bodyshop supply store if you can. I've found that it really make brighter colors more brilliant.

    Remember it's the polishing that brings out the depth and wettness.

    I used Clearkote Carnaube Moose Wax and Vanilla Moose on my car and it turned out great.

    I actually just used Collinite's 476s Double Wax on a red Wrangler today. Hot as hell and will last for 5 months easily.

    Still to me NXT2.0 is one of the best out there.
