I washed the Ram today, then hand applied a full coat of Meguiar's NXT Generation™ Tech Wax to every square inch of the truck, roof included. This was my first experience with Meguiar's latest, high tech wax which is said to compete with the most expensive show car paint sealers and waxes for a fraction of the cost.
The wax went on quite smoothly and easily with the foam applicator pad included in the box. After allowing about a half hour for the wax to fully dry, I set out to remove it.
I used clean terry cloth towels to remove the bulk of the wax and was initially disappointed by a pronounced streakiness, as if I'd not fully removed the residual wax from my black truck (perhaps I put too much on to begin with?). So I rubbed away with a fresh towel and really found the stuff difficult to get buffed off.
I then put a wool bonnet on my el-cheapo Craftsman 10" electric buffer and attacked. I must say, the wool bonnet did the trick.
I finished the day up with an interior detail and dressing the tires with Meguairs Hot Shine Tire Coating. The truck looked good before, but the NXT has taken it a step above and beyond my expectations. It is simply dazzling. Deep, shimmering, mirror-like in the sun, the Ram looks KILLER.
All in all, I'd give Meguiar's NXT Generation™ Tech Wax two thumbs up. If it's as durable as people claim it is, the work was well worth the effort. The only caveat I'd give is, if you don't have an electric buffer for that final rub/buff, strive to apply a very thin
coat of product when you first put it on your car, truck or bike...too thick a coat makes it a chore to get off.
