OTC Megs NXT and or Mothers Synwax both are synthetics that will last longer then carnuba wax's (despite the word wax in the name they are synthetic polymers). If you don't mind spend some change then go to www.autogeek.net and order some Klasse All-in-one awesome paint cleaner and light acrylic polish top that off with 4 Stars Ultimate Paint Protection. This combo has served me extremely well and looks great on ALL colors. .02 oh and if you want to get serious about detailing your stang then read up on www.autopia.org more info then you know what to do with lol.

what happend to good old turtle wax?
From my experience most (aka not all) OTC products look good at first but with in a month the product is dead and needs to be reaplyed. I hate spending my days off try to get the shine back, so I decided to research and research till I found what suited *my* taste. Poorboys world came shining through like a champ, you get great results, there easy to use, and most important (at least in my area) they are extremely sun friendly. Try using turtle wax in mid summer in South Florida in the middle of the after noon, it's like removing cement on the paint.

As far as red goes I really like Red machine glazed topped with Clearkote Carnuba Moose wax or Natty's blue.

Nice very nice, I am not as bad about the GT but I am extremely anal about the Cobra, it is a a garage queen..lol. But I use the same stuff on my Cobra and love it. If you want a good sealant to put on before the wax try Four Star UPP(Ultimate Paint Protection), gives a great reflective shine with excellent durabilty.
So here is my proccess for the Cobra, SSR2.5(pc, orange pad), SSR1(pc, white pad), RMG(pc black pad), UPP(pc, black plad), then Carnuba Moose Wax or Natty's blue by hand, can't beat this combo imo.
