Pinnacle huh? Looks very good Ken. Does that do anything for swirls???
Prior to applying Pinnacle, I used 3M Swirl Remover Polish (comes in a blackish bottle). The polish takes care of cleaning up the old wax and supplying the paint w/ the proper essential minerals that it needs to keep its flex and durability.

After I got the paint all clean and norished w/ the 3M polish, I followed up w/ the Pinnacle wax. This particular Pinnacle wax is made for dark colored and red colored cars and uses a high content of extremely good carnuba wax which in turn gives you a wonderful deep shine.

One reason I like this better than most others is that its very simple and easy to use. Heck, even my dad, who knows very little about car care, can do it.

None of the nonsense involving, Z1 for 2 hours, Z4 for 8 hours, Z9028 for 3 hours, then make sure you do the Z2 for 1 hour, but don't let that dry, use the Z5 and let it cure for 5 hours. Now lets finally wax w/ Z40. Remind you of some product? ;) Zaino is a good product, but I don't have the time in my schedule for such nonsense for making my car look good.

BTW, I've used TOOOOO many different waxes and polishes out there. I'll stick w/ Pinnacle for the next decade, unless someone comes out w/ something easier and better.

OK. Ken u gotta a buffer or do u do it by hand??
I have a buffer, but I did it last night by hand. Buffer is about 50% better shine if you ask me. But I got one of those cheap $50 buffers.

I'm just waiting to bite the bullet and get a nice Griots Garage Buffer.
