December 2, 2007Poorboys is the best I have ever used. Very easy to apply and remove by hand.
December 2, 2007For what? The paint or wheels?
Porter cable buffer for paint
Flitz or Mothers ball for wheels.
I like just about anything Maguires makes for waxes and polishes.
December 2, 2007the paint, im fine for the rims, even though id rather have a set of stock steel rims, not big on the aluminum ones i got.
December 2, 2007pretty much any wax can be done by hand, using a random orbital buffer makes it sooo much faster and without all the (sweating) and a hole lot nicer job
December 2, 2007oh yeh l like using 3M products they have waxes polishes rubbing compounds cleaners anything you could need
December 3, 2007i am fine on waxing my truck i was referring to just polishes which ones can be applied by hand, in the past i have used nu finish because there were never any scratches on the truck, but i was looking for a very light abrasive polish to handle some very faint scratches in the paint, thanks for the replys
December 3, 2007Look here
December 3, 2007Poorboys has a product called Super Swirl Removers. It comes in varying degrees depending on how much help your truck needs. It sounds like you'd need the SSR 1 which is mild.
December 3, 2007I don't recommend using anything more aggressive then a medium abrasive polish for hand application...Don't expect the same results as with a rotary or Dual action, though. Even though polishing by hand can provide decent results, it's also limited in it's correcting abilities, so don't expect miracles.
