Default Some advice on detailing products?

Winter is taking a toll on my baby! I can't wait until it spring comes so I can detail her.
In the meantime, I'm researching some products right now so I can be on the lookout for sales (:
Right now I have Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer, Meguiar's Quik Detailer, Meguiar's Natural Shine Protectant, Meguiar's clay bar, Meguiar's Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo (can you see a trend? haha), Invisible Glass Cleaner and Rain-X Ultra Liquid Wax.

Thinking about getting Meguiar's Cleaner Wax, Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax (redundant or no?) and maybe some applicator pads and microfibers (can never have too much!)

I'm also looking at Meguiar's NXT 2.0. Opinoins on that? Any suggestions? Opinions on my products?

Thanks!

I like the NXT 2.0. A local detail shop here sells Chemical Guys products and I have had tremendous luck with their stuff.

Maybe find a local detail shop that handles good detail stuff and have a chat with them. Also check out autogeek.net, they have good stuff and good information on there.

Do you think it would be a waste if you put on the nxt 2.0 after the cleaner wax?

sunder, the megs cleaner wax is a 1 stage wax. it has abrasives, polish, scratch filler, and sealant in it. its a good product, and goes a long way.

looks like you are missing a pure polish in your arsenal. meguairs show glaze #7 (you can get from your local autostore, its in a mirror glaze yellowish bottle)

the nxt 2.0 has some scratch fillers in it so it will hide some minor swirls and scratches. if you can find it, get a bottle of color x. it will do wonders as its a little more abrasive than the cleaner wax.

wash with gold class
wash with gold class
dry
clay with clay kit
wipe down clay marks with quik detailer
polish with show glaze
coat of color x
coat of nxt 2.0

have fun. this is getting almost as far as you can go by hand until you invest in a decent orbital buffer and pads. the shine and depth it brings is still amazing.

this is my experience with the above process.

the rust remover works, but depends on how far the rust has gone. if its just on the surface it should come off with some scrubbing. you will have to repaint that area. hope you stop it early enough so you dont have to cut metal out and weld in new.

Any recommendations on cheap orbital buffers? Are those $25-$30 buffers junk or would they work?
