I used Meguiars NXT wax last night seem to have sort of a shadowy haze from some angles depending on the light. What do I need to do. More wax?? More rubbing??

I get the same "shadow" using the Tech Wax 2.0 on my black Bullitt. It requires additional buffing to "blend it in".

Sounds like the infamous Tech Wax 2.0 issue I've read about elsewhere. From what I've read Gilbert is on the money... buff it more to get rid of the haze. It sure makes me thankful that I have two full bottles of Tech Wax 1.0 in my garage!

Try Meguiar's Gold Class liquid wax. I use it on my black Bullitt without problems, and the finish is superb.
I've also got the
Liquid Wax and it works just fine.

And it is easy to put on and Get Off IMO.

3591,

Also here is a Suggestion.

I have used a similar Orbital Buffer as this one now for yrs.

Sorry, can't do Separate Picture of (Orbital Buffer). I'm At Work !!!!!

They work just Great and I Honestly think your
Haze will be Gone in Short Order.

These are SAFE on Clear Coat Finishes !!!!!!!

You can get these at almost any place that sells Automotive Waxes etc.

Auto Zone, Carquest, Napa, any of these places and let us not forget On-Line :wink:


Hope this Helps,

Terry

I had the same problem wiped it down several times using a clean towel each time kind of a pain but the car looks great now.

This is still easer than using the cheap wax I use to use on cars.

I will try more hand rubbing. Have always been afraid to use power buffer.
3591,

An "Orbital Buffer" is just like us using Our Hands. No Damage to Paint/Clearcoat Finish.

Go look at one in (Person) and turn it on.

You will then see what I mean.

Trust me I would NOT EVER Recommend anything to a IMBOC Member that would "DAMAGE" Their Bullitt !!!!!

I use Nu Finish (solid orange bottle), which is the original polymer polish. I noticed that the first coat leaves a bluish haze that is not so attractive. Once I put a second coat on, it shines nice and clear. No buffing is required- it just wipes on and wipes off.

"Machines are for Whimps!" Next thing, you'll be asking for someone to pump your gas and check your tires. :)

If you really want to bring out the shine, skip the standard orbital buffer and pick up a random orbital dual action polisher like the Meguiar's G-110 or PC7424.

As for the wax, the regular NXT formula, not 2.0, is a great wax and can provide some very deep results. For an even better finish, step up to Meguiar's pro line of products. #00453 gets treated to #7 Show Car Glaze topped with #26 Pure Yellow Wax. The results are great. I am going to replace the #26 with the #21 Synthetic Sealant on my next detail. Anytime I need paint correction, I use #80 Speed Glaze with the Meguiar's G-100 DACP.

Thanks Terry. As for the "standing tall" part, not any more. Installed some H&R Sport Springs a couple weeks ago. Stance is much better now. I need to have a little photoshoot now that they are installed.

Here is a better pic showing the reflective-ness of the #26 Yellow Wax.


Crappy cell phone pic of products used.

Can you burn though anything with the dual action polisher?
No. They are pretty much fool-proof. If you are considering getting one, I strongly recommend one of the kits from ADS. Great prices and the G-110 comes with a lifetime warranty, unlike the PC7424 or UDM that only comes with a 1 year warranty.
