Well forget that. Thanks diablo. I stick with what I normally use. The Gold class came off pretty easy though and it did a nice job too.

It's not that I don't enjoy it, but my health says other wise. You forgot that I spent my last birthday in the hospital after suffering what they call a mild heat stroke (why they call it mild is beyond me).

That's ok. I'm reminded everyday that I wake up and try to move. Key word TRY. I hate this crap. 35 years old and can barely get out of bed to take a leak. Mostly on cold winter mornings is when I have problems. Heat is about the only thing that seems to help. This summer I'll be ok when it gets hot.

No. I just get by with 6 different pain cremes when it gets bad. There's no cure for Rhumetoid Arthuritis which by now is not in doubt. Not just by me but by mom's friends, relatives and co workers. They all say the same thing: He need's an MRI. They think I didn't or don't hear them, but I do.

The cheapest Meguires is excellent. I'll put it on 2 times a year.

I use turtle wax express shine, spray on wipe off, easy. I like easy and the shine looks great on my 11-12 yr old ranger.

Spray waxes are easy to get on, but yea only last around a week. They should only be applied ontop of real wax, like a detailer spray.

Liquid waxes suck big time, they move dirt all over with their pads. Pretty much get a thin layer of dirt all over your truck, even if you washed it.

Normal can carnuaba & synthetic carnuaba can waxes seem to be the best and is pretty easy to put on and remove.

I've tested a 'few' products over the last two years, just my 2cents.

I personally like any surf city garage cleaners. The interior detailer works wonders on your dash. And the barrier reef car wash and wax is great. Never seen my truck shine like it did after I used it.
