So from reading the replies so far some of you guys like the good old hand job and other like to go nuts and use a power polisher.
I don't wax my truck just can't find the time and now the truck is even higher I just don't see the need to kill myself waxing it.

It's good to do it at least once a year. I hate it myself, but the results are rewarding once it's done.

Agreed....I don't like doing it, but next to my house, it's the second most expensive thing I own so I treat it well. For a total of 4-8 hours time out of 8760 hours in the year there isn't reallya valid excuse.

What you need Grant is the new flat black Raptor I saw on a lot today.

Such is life. Just passing through.

I think you spend to much time on the shitter. MAX for me is 10 minutes. My ass would probably fall asleep if I spent that much time on the can.

Back on topic.

When I first got the Lightning I used Mothers. It was easy to get and cheap. It's cheap and on sale all the time for a reason, IT SUCKS! I now use Meguiars and love it. Everything is better with Meguiars from there Quick Detailer to the Clay Kit and Wax. I love the Ultimate stuff. So easy to apply and take off. I usually buy it when I go to the states cause it is so much cheaper there.

Autoglym I like there wash and tire shine so when I run out of stock on Meguiars I will give them a shot, probably next year.
