If you do as you have, that's better than most. I'm sure it looks great.
But I've been doing this for a long time (not that you haven't) and have done like many and continued to search for "the deepest shine." It's not necessary, but why not.
I too use the stage one Meguire's, but prefer Zymol wax, Blue Coral Sufrace Sealant, and Turtle Wax Ultra Gloss as a suplement to each wash to maintain that just waxed shine. --->

Car detailing is a very personal thing, and so are car care products. People like smell, consistancy, color etc..... I used Megs #80 and NXT on two cars I did yesterday, the owner said they looked better than the day he bought it. Megs makes a line of product called the consumer line (Maroon bottles) for DIY'ers. And its designed for ease of use. They also make a professional line, for folks like myself who apply product with machines. There a little more trickier to use, and yield deeper cutting action, shinier, longer lasting. But like i said above I used NXT yesterday, and am totally happy with its results! I think its the best thing going for white. I use Blackfire or Fourstar for dark colors, I use Klasse for people who neglect their cars, because it lasts and lasts.. I use Clearkote Vanilla Moose hand glaze or Moosewax for wash and waxes, because i can use it in the sun, and its extremely user friendly, with average durability. I really dont think there is one product for every situation, different products respond differently to different colors, thats been my observation as a detailer.

Ok.. I dont know if this is a problem or not.. but I used what I said earlier ... miguiers.. then a coat of zymol... now it looks like my paint is greasy.... and oily... the directions for the zymol say use a little water after application... I did.. but I can still see swirl... marks... that I can make with my finger and a clean cotton rag... it just looks oily.. Jllphan... any idea.. does this happen???
