pc kit

im thinking about ordering the pc kit this weekend but i have a few questions

1. How do i know if i need the severe swirl and haze remover or just the regular swirl and haze remover?

2. What wax should i get? I have mothers carnauba wax. Can i put that on by hand after i finsh with the pc? or should i pick up some adams wax to use with the pc?

im trying to decide between these two kits

I personally would go for the first link the complete set that is what I used now mind you I was already washing my vehicle using the two bucket method however I had some small surface scratches that could only be seen with a certain angle light reflecting on it. After using this kit I removed all the noticeable scratches and it was fairly easy just take a look at your paint and see what type of results you are trying to achieve keep it mind how you will continue to maintain the finish after doing all these steps.

If you go with the kit you do not need the wax unless you want to add a little more to it the sealant is sufficient enough however I added my wax two weeks after my sealant at it brought that extra wet look so as far as wax you are fine with the mothers canuba just make sure you let the sealant cure 24hrs before waxing.

I agree about goin with the first kit. That's what I got and first I tried the regular haze and swirl remover. Then I went back over the same area with the severe remover and it was much better. I would suggest that most will benefit from the severe application first then do the rest of the applications in order for best results. It's pretty amazing how it works. Just be patient. That's the hardest part. Patients

get the first kit.....for the additional $25 you get more than that in additional products and IF you ever need them, you already have them and are ready to go. Whether its for your car, or for someone elses you are "practicing on" LOL
