Jescar powerlock plus sealant and collinite 845 is all you need. The turtle wax and meguiars hybrid ceramic sprays are not very good. I will sometimes use the megs ceramic spray as a drying agent after i do a maintenance wash but it doesn't last very long and not worth the $12 in my opinion

  • Wipe down and do isopropyl 50% and wipe
  • Turtle Wax Seal N Shine Hybrid Sealant (great video here on comparison) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59w-eKzmgw4&t=298s
Thoughts?
If you do any kind of kind of claying whether its with a mitt (my preference) or traditional clay, you will introduce marring in the paint and that is especially true on darker colored vehicles. You really need to polish after you clay. I use griots garage one step sealant after I clay a vehicle. Its quick, gets rid of the marring and swirls and is a sealant as well so you cover all your bases in one shot.

Thanks! I am assuming I can use good old elbow grease and not have to use a electric polisher?

Yep, it takes longer but Elbow Grease does still work and normally you have a harder time burning the paint or leaving swirl marks with it.

My truck isn't black, but just did a coat with Mequiar's Ultimate liquid wax. Application was simple, and it came off quite easy, all by hand. I do have an electric polisher and still like the good old green turtle wax. But this Ultimate stuff was actually easier to do by hand, and turned out great.
The kit does come with a little application pad and a microfiber towel.
