Nice. Return the wax and get a good sealant like opti-coat. So much better.

The Flex 3401 with Lake Country Hybrid pads is where its at... If your going to go all out then pick up the Menzerna compounds and polishes as well.

Yea once I order the Flex, I was gonna jump on menzerna products only, ive had great results from menzerna polishes in the past, but was a lil interested to try these meguairs ones.
