    Alright guys, I've read all 18 pages of thread in this forum and I've learned tons. A quick question about the products mentioned on this board. I use to use Zaino and it was nice cause it never left a white residue on the edges or in cracks, but it was just too much work for the results. So I went to regular carnuba wax's, but those leave white residue's on the edges and in cracks. I plan on purchasing some Vanilla Moose and Carnuba Wax. Would either one of these leave white residue on edges or in cracks(emblems)? Thanx.

    It doesn't stain the trim if that's what you're asking. But, any kind of wax will turn white if you don't get it off the car.

    Carnauba Moose doesn't dry white, I don't think. Not sure though, since I always get it all off.

    just be careful and if it dries on trim use a wax/residue remover from 3m or if its in a crack use a "softer" brush with short bristles to get it out

    Hmmm, I see. Thanks for the help guys. So I guess I'll just have to be careful around the emblems. The Zaino spoiled me with their no white residue.

    It's amazing how much you learn after reading 18 pages of threads...lol. Just want to get it right. Now it's just a matter of getting the product and trying it out. The process I will take from what I've gathered:

    -Wash Car (Meguier's Car Wash)
    -Clay Bar (Mother's Clay Bar w/ soap lube)
    -Wash Car again (I know it's not necessary, but personal preference)
    -Meguiar's DACP, if necessary for paint defects or oxidation w/ terry cloth folded
    -Meguiar's Swirl Remover, if necessary for swirls w/ terry cloth folded
    -Vanilla Moose Glaze for my polish w/ foam applicator. Wipe on, then wipe off immediately
    -Carnauba Moose Wax w/ foam applicator. Wipe on, then wipe off immediately
    -ClearKote's Quick Shine

    How's that for a noob?

    I would wait a day before using Quikshine to make sure CMW is fully dry.

    Pics are mandatory.

    I'll never understand how Zaino can be too much work. I find it the most relaxing product I've ever used.

    Either way, where are the pics!?
