This soap is honestly the only Chemical Guys product I have ever used. It does a GREAT job stripping old wax and sealants. Then again - they make like 100 different soaps so their bound to get at least one right. (I use Adams for maintenance washes)

    Polish was done with my new Griots G9 (love it!), LC Hydrotech tangerine pads and Sonax Perfect Finish.

    Wheels - Griots Chrome Wheel Cleaner followed by Mother`s All Chrome Cleaner.

    Exhaust tips - Optimum Metal polish w 0000 steel wool.

    LSP was Clearkote Carnauba Moose Wax. It will be interesting to see how many of the old timers on here remember this stuff. It was one of Scottwax`s favorites on the forums here way back when. I do have Souveran paste wax but the Clearkote darkens the paint a bit more which I like. I still think there is nothing like a Carnuba "glow" on red paint.

    I certainly remember the moose wax and the souveran. Great job. Takes me back to the good old days.
