    New tires, replaced a well worn set of PS4S with the new Pilot Sport A/S 4. Dipped the wheels gunmetal. Changed oil (PUP).

    Meguiars stuff is usually really good except they tend to used filler in some of their polished and compound in my experience.
    I like to use menzerna products. I used their 2500 and 3500 most of the time. If I really need to the 400 is a nice heavy cut, doesn't dry out as fast as the 1000 for me. I fin there products to have a nice working time(don't dry out easily) and easy wiping off. For light stuff I found that the 3500 and a lake county green pad works out really well. Even works good for me on soft black plaint(Nissan, Audi, Toyota).

    Thank you for the suggestions @Orangatang! I've only ever hand waxed a car myself before. Ive never tried a power polisher as I've hear horror stories of burning the paint or clear coat.

    I'm sure I can do it myself though...just need to find time.

    I have a to-do list that never seems to get shorter.
