I used to be much more into polishing and waxing the car, back when I had the time and my back could take the punishment, but of late I've slacked. Recently though I bought my 2017 Equinox, and part of the deal, since this is the 2nd new car I have gotten while my wife is driving our 06 Trailblazer, was that I would detail the Trailblazer, and make it look nice again. Its in great shape and is cleaned often and kept in a garage, but since its been a few years since I really went over it, I couldn't believe how rough the paint was. Even after washing and hand polish, it felt terrible. So I tried the clay bar, and couldn't believe the difference. Maybe a minute with the clay bar and spray on the fender, and it feels like glass. Wiped it off and polished it and it looks/feels incredible. As far as products, I am a big fan of Meguiars. The TechWax is great, and much easier than the older stuff to buff off. I think I am going to try their new Hybrid Ceramic Wax and see how it comes out.
