Showroom New

Hey Jeepers, we're a bunch of crazy bastards aren't we? We love our Libbys! Any good ideas on keeping it looking showroom new? Recommended wax, frequency, method, etc. and how 'bout washing? Terry vs. chamois etc. I want to avoid swirls in my fine lookin' shiny black LTD!

I own a black/black BMW Z3 and use Meguiars #7 Showglaze and #26 PASTE (not liquid) wax. Leaves an awesome, long-lasting shine.

Coupla other tips:

*Wash with a special car soap that doesn't strip wax.

* Use medium-firm foam padding to apply polish/waxes and old 100% T-shirts to wipe.

* buy the "California Duster" - a special car dusting brush that removes dust without scratching. I use this and it greatly extends wash/wax intervals.

Still waiting for Lib. Renegade...

hey guys, i agree with all the above EXCEPT the car duster...i used it on my Stealth for awhile and all was good until i noticed FINE lines coming from it. basically same as swirl marks but not in swirl designs if that makes sense. Basically with black its tough...just keep up regular waxes is all i can say and don t press hard when wiping it down.
