Opinion on best wax for red truck

I have a 2005 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCab. I was wondering which wax would give the best results for a red truck. Thanks!!

Poorboys Natty's Red if you can find it...if not get the Blue

Or try Megs #26
S100
Black Velvet Carnauba Wax
Pinnacle

Those would be my choices.



PS I am kind of on a PB kick right now.

I'm about to give mine a Speed Glaze (#80), Show car glaze (#7) and a coat or two of High tech yellow (#26). Will report back with pics.

With the way that I'm getting screwed over on my waitlisted classes, might as well.

Yes clay. And wheel wells. Now... Which would you recommend first, speed glaze or #7? And how many coats?

After you clay check the paint...Doesn't hurt to use the 80, I love that stuff. If your paint has minor marks and spiderwebbing just go easy with the 80. When you use the 7, go thin and do not let it set, remove with MF. Work one section at a time.

Should yield some great results.

Of course some close up befores would be great.

I've never used the 80 before... so any tips on that will be appreciated. And I've used the #7 before.. . Problem is, I think I'm going to be doing this by hand. I don't have any type of a buffer here... My buddy Brian *might* have a small one here with him (fingers crossed). Also, I'm thinking a coat or two of 80 would be best...

I think you are in for a long day if you don't have a DA.

If you don't, use a MF applicator pad and go to town.

I feel for you, that is going to be tough.

Heh... I know. Figure it'll end up being a 2 day project unless I find a buffer...

I'm not waitlisted luckily, but I did attend a 3 hour class tonight, that I wasn't even enrolled in. I read the schedule wrong and I have the class tomorrow. Now that sucks.

I'm in position number 1 for Mech 153. Went to class today and was told that unless somebody in my lab drops, I'm SOL.
