    Re: Review: Meguiar's D166 Ultra Polishing Wax by Mike Phillips

    Ok cool... That explains it all.

    Hey I was browsing Ebay this morning and saw a gray 1960 that looks a bit like your old 59' as far as the color and stuff. Coincidence





    ... And oh my goodness, that flattop Caddy sure was something! That thing is rare especially in that kind of original condition wow! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you sell it for? [I'm guessing it's been almost 20yrs. since you sold it] I know there's a part of you that wishes you could've tucked it away and kept it huh?

    The exception to the rule now days is there are cleaner/waxes available that use top notch abrasive technology that "yes" you can use them on 100% perfect paint without degrading the appeance or "working backwards".
    which AIOs fall into this category?

    I'll have to check that out. Do you think meguiars d301 would serve a similar function on a soft finishing pad? I have a bottle of it I've hardly used and was kind of looking for a use for it. I'll probably try it out in the next few days just to see.

    Cool. I googled a bit and really couldn't find anything other than off hand mentions about the d301 being used on a foam pad vs the mf finishing discs, which was surprising. One of the only pictures I saw of it being done was from mike phillips working on some delicate paint. unsure of the specific car it was.

    I'm happy to put together a list of the products I think qualify as jeweling waxes...

It's a truck. It sees a lot of normal wear-n-tear. I don't mind a few deeper swirls and scratches. Moving forward into the future it's going to see MORE wear-n-tear and get more swirls and scratches. So I keep m sanity by realizing all of this and instead of aiming for perfection I aim for shiny. Shiny swirls? You bet. It's a truck, not a show car.


    Mike - this paragraph made me realize i am aiming too high for my car which is a daily driver. Thank you!

    Your welcome.

    I’d say most people with daily drivers are aiming too high, not that that’s a bad thing but reality is daily drivers see future wear-n-tear.

    How is the D166 compared to meguiars M66? Both are cleaner wax but which will perform better?
