    My parents got me a can of Meguiars Gold Class wax and some of their ColorX for Xmas. I took my car down to the clear with dish soap, clay barred the whole thing, and then used the Color X. Put a little elbow grease behind it and finished off with 2 coats of Gold class. The shine coming off of it was way better than what I expected. Just a little heads up to anyone looking for a good wax.

    Yeah, Gold Class and NXT are really good for an over the counter wax.
    Used them on about 15+ cars and they all turned out great.

    Color X is a good over the couter product. A good chemical paint polish. Clay-bar was also a good choice, but dish washing soap was NOT. Dish washing soap is harmful to your paint, and yes it strips all wax, but claybar does also, no need for the dish soap. And Gold Class is a cleaner wax, wish means it slightly removes old waxes under it, so more than one coat would be a waste. A good "topper" or something to put on top of Gold Class would be NXT, or Meg's #26. Both have little to no cleaning agents, and will not strip old layers of wax. Color X, Gold Class, then NXT would be a good combo.
