    i use the Meguiar's DEEP CRYSTAL® SYSTEM POLISH and the Meguiar's NXT GENERATION TECH WAX® 2.0. I also use the Meguiar's GOLD CLASS™ TRIM DETAILER™ for all the black plastic and I use the Meguiar's NXT GENERATION™ INSANE SHINE™ TIRE COATING for my tires.

    I guess u could say i'm a big fan of Meguiar's products.

    Good luck and let's see some pics when u get her all prettied up!

    I use Mothers products. I have not tried the newer FX line yet though. Meguier's is also a great product. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

    If you want easy, I use Eagle 1 Nanowax after every wash, it's one of those liquid spray on waxes. I can wipe down the whole truck in 45 mins or less. It gives a nice shine with very little buffing with no swirl marks. Also the great thing I like about it is I can use it on all surfaces, chrome, black plastic, stainless steel, headlights and taillights everything except the glass, but if you do get it on the glass it doesn't make a mess. It is keeping my headlights looking like new and it makes bugs and other debris easy to remove at the next wash.

    go to that thread, and follow it to this guy's web site. it is made here in america by one of our very own members. i ordered one of their free samples, send them a pm and ask about a free sample. after i used up the sample, i quickly tossed out my old soap and bought some of his grape smelling purple stuff. it works absolutely flawlessly. i also purchased some of their tire shine. it lasted through a week of driving in the rain on a 60 mile daily commute

    Cool wax and polish

    I have a black Z-71 thats always outside. I wax every month with Meguiars Mirror Glaze #26. Twice a year I polish with Meguiares Show Car Glaze #7 before I wax. Most people think the paint on truck is aftermarket because of depth and shine.
