    I am going to try to wax/polish my truck this weekend any suggestions on what would be the best product to use. My paint is in pretty good shape a few water spots and a few light swirls.

    Meguiars gold standard wax is the best I've used so far!

    Meguiars has a new Ultimate polish and Ultimate wax for black trucks that works great. I use Meguiars MirrorGlaze #7 polish and then follow with there #26 wax, but when I use these up ( it will be awhile as I have a gallon of the #26 wax, LOL) I think I'm going to get the new Ultimate stuff. I see Walmart is carrying the new stuff.

    If you go to my lastest photo album you can see the truck after a polish and wax with the #7 polish and the #26 wax.

    Zymol works the best on dark colors, and it's easy to remove with little elbow grease

    I've done the Clay Bar Showing in the Link Above and I was Blowing Away at the Difference in How Smooth the Surface of the Paint was on my Truck after doing the Clay Bar.

    I've really been wanting to try the clay bar! Just haven't been able to set a whole day aside to get it done. I heard it takes a pretty good while.
