Cool How do you guys get & keep that showroom shine?

I want my car to have that deep perfect gloss... What are you guys using as far as polish and wax? Are any of you using a glaze?

How often do you have to re-do the car to maintain that look?

Never drive it. Keep it in the showroom. It's hard to make our cars shine (silver). It's to light to really reflect anything back, but polishing and waxing does help!

There is a reason wax/polish manufacturers do NOT sponsor Silver or White car owners (lighter the color, the less the shine)



PS
