I just polished and waxed my car in about 2 hours....half assed....hehe and it still looks about 10 times better and shinier (is that a word?) than it did before. I had to hurry cause the sun was goin down and i couldn´t see where i´d wiped the wax off from anymore. If you don´t already, polish and wax your Scort, keep it pimpin.
My paint was all faded and pinkish on the wing, now it´s red again...it´s cool. Tell me all...what do you all use when you wax your cars? i used some Maguires polish then some Kit wax. it looks pretty good, but my boss says Mothers polish/wax is better.

Charlie I agreed 100% Mequires all the way. I detailed for a living for a few years and that is the best stuff on the market. If you can find it they make a dual action cleaner polish. no swirl marks or anything.

If you want to quickly detail your car for photos, try using Windex. It´s great for a quick shine, and really brings clarity to your paint. Once shined, you can snap photos, etc. BUT, once you´re done, wash the car down. Otherwise, the Windex residue is sticky and will attract dust. It´s only good for a short-term shine.

Hey laz, do you own an SVT Contour or a GL model, or the other model (can´t remember the other designation)?
I´ve only seen 3 SVT Contours here in my city since i found out about them about 3 months ago. I think they´re pretty sweet and they have tons of power to them.

I have used everything under the sun (quite literally), and have yet to find the perfect polish/wax. Over the years, I have found that the Meguire´s professional line of products are the best for a complete job, NuFinish is the best "quick´n´dirty", and Mother´s Back to Black is best for spoilers whose UV is dead and constantly fade to white.

Lately, however, I have come across several very convincing testimonials from friends on Zainos Brothers products. The folks who use it swear that is the best stuff on earth, and the website has a pretty good story to tell. I am intrigued enough to think about trying some of their products. If anyone has tried them, I would be interested in hearing an opinion.

Wax on, wax off, James-sahn.

Marcus

i have a contour gl...

the designations are GL, LX, SE, SVT

my conrour has the zetec inline 4 with kkx intake and i also have exhaust work...lots of other stuff done too...its not a rocket by any means, but its unique to have a contour in these days of civics and such...

as far as zaino products...the people from both contour online clubs swear by them...almost everyone uses zaino on there...but i refuyse to pay that much money for a product that I feel i get the same results from with eagle one...or meguiars for the matter...

but if you wanted to know if they do work...yes i have heard numerous accounts of people being happy with zaino products...
