The only way to Wax your car

Well I decided to give my 1LE it's first coat of wax. I must say that having the right tool sure does make the job more comfortable

What is it with you guys and your "Super" garages? I wish I had that much room and a lift.

You are welcome anytime but it would be an awful long drive from NJ to get here! If you are ever in WI near Madison and needed a place to stop and work on the car just give a holler.

Been there and done that. Makes me appreciate the lift all that much more!! It's one of those tools where you have to give up mods for the car in order to buy though. But now that I have one I wish I would have done it last year instead of buying the SGM Camaro that I traded for the 1LE.

It's not nice to call that poor guy a tool. I don't have the lift in my ol' farm-shop but by golly I got me one of them little roll-around stools for getting down low.

Nice garage Nick, some day I will have one like that but for now I have to make due with a mere 20X20 with 8' walls. I'm pretty sure your garage is bigger than my house too!

Glad to see you treating your car right!

Well for my 2002 SS I bought some Meguiars Gold Class Carnauba. I tried that on the hood and front end first one night and it never seemed to dry right. It was a lot more work to take off the car. So then I talked to a friend of mine and he has always had good luck with Mothers Brazilian Carnauba. So I went out and got a bottle of that and tried it. The Mother's wax worked really well. I'm pretty happy with how easy it goes on and comes off. So I also used the Mother's on my 1LE then as well.

Now I know there will be people on here that chime in and say I should have used Adam's Americana Wax or something like that but when I bought the bottle of mothers for $6 on sale and it still produces a nice deep shine I can't complain. I'm not planning on entering my car in any "concourse" style car shows so the mother's will give me a nice deep shine that will look just as good to 99% of the people out there that see the car.

So for me Mothers Brazilian Carnauba FTW

Well I went for 7 years with only a 2 car garage (Barely a 2 car at that) that was detached 55 ft away from the house and had no electricity to the garage. So basically it was a storage shed. My wife and I saved our money and bought the place we were renting in 2009 and then did a remodel/addition in 2011. I always had big dreams and plans for my garage and I was finally able to make it happen in 2011. I didn't get my lift though until March 15th of this year. So I'm still getting that "Broke in"!

Hang in there and keep planning for it and it will happen. Just comes down to priorities. I even sold off a bunch of engine parts I had for my 2002 SS because I wanted the $4500 I had in engine part for finishing details in the garage.

All that money in the garage, now you need a buffer and all the polishes!

I have been looking at DA Buffers. Been trying to research them here and there to see what the pro's and con's of each brand are I just haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet. I'm also a little nervous that I'll do more harm than good with one. I'll probably have to practice on my daily drivers first before I even get near one of the Camaro's with a DA!

Nick,

A Porter Cable or similar brand RANDOM ORBITAL buffer, available from Griots, Auto-Geek, etc is what you need. You cannot damage your paint with a random orbital.
