word, so you just rub wax into to make it look that good?

can I just grab a tub of Turtle Wax and attack my Red Truck with a buffing wheel to make it shine? Paint seems good, just dull. . .and I don't want to spend a lot right now

lol mustang uses a combo of stuff... it gets the stuff i get from the dealership for free... (which doesnt give a good shine) and then the subsequent coats are done with Meguiars NXT...

yup ya apply then rub off the excess... buffers just help it go on and off faster really... liquids are good for if your going to use a buffer.. but i prefer the old school paste waxes... the chemicals down seperate like they do with the liquids over time.. biggest thing is to take your time with it too on both styles.. more time ya take the better theyll look..

my trucks paints faded and tons of chips in it.. some places have been touched up with rattle can as well which is part of why i want to repaint it.. bumpers i repainted few months ago.. but theres also a couple places i need to do patch pannels and other things to as well..
