Well meguiars has a great 3 step system, but thats not what i use. I like to use a mothers claybar to get all the crap off the paint (works like a charm), then i top it off with a nice coat of zymbol cleaner wax...then if you like you can polish it as well, but ive tried polishing afterwards, and to me, i cant tell the difference after having just waxed it. But yea i wash it atleast once or twice a week lol. Thats actually a big key to keeping it looking nice is to just wash it pretty often. The more often you wash it, the less time things like bug guts and road grime have to bake on to your paint, and since i dont have a garage, i REALLY need to wash mine alot. lol Also, after you wash it, i like to buff the paint (while still wet) with a towel. This will even out the wax and get rid of that hazy streaky look when the sun shines on it. And sorry but i doubt i can wax your car for you lol :p

Thanks for the compliments btw...i was actually lucky enough to win 1st in a car show a week ago. I was soooo excited. :D 8)

Well you can use shammy, i used to, but it wont give your paint that really smooth feel that a towel will. What i do is just get a regular old bathroom towel and basically buff it out in a kinda circular motion. Yea it does leave fuzzies, but i found out that those Swifer rags, (u know the ones that u see on the commercials) work great for picking up fuzzy stuff, and even some dirt off the paint. Just run over the car with one of those after you buff it out a little and it should feel slicker than polished glass.

The clay bar is a big hunk of clay lol..you spray detail spray on the car, then rub that clay bar on the paint, and it gets out all the grimy rough crap in your paint. Its amazing. My moms car has never been waxed b/f and i tried that clay bar on one spot, and it was really smooth. Its about 15 bucks or so, but its well worth it imo. You can get it at most any stores. Wallyworld, or pretty much any auto store. I tried it for the first time b/f the show last week and now i swear by it. :D
