View Full Version : #21 is Absolutely Fantastic Stuff! (photos)

Nov 8th, 2006, 10:27 AM
My first experience using #21. I'm totally hooked! Glad I bought a half gallon!

Easy application and removal. Deep lustre. I've never had water bead up like in the photo's below.....I was really impressed! On my way to work this morning, I'm not sure which shed water better- My windshield with Rainx or the #21 (two coats). Unfortunately, the truck is a "dirt bag" already due to the weather.

If you look closely in the first photo,,,,I found it easier to remove the tail lites rather than tape them up. I did the exterior detailing over the course of a week,,,,,due to being busy (at work) and the first snow we had here in my area (Central New York Lake Effect Snow)






Thanks for viewing!

Is #21 on the bug deflector (3rd pic), too?

Is #21 on the bug deflector (3rd pic), too?

Thanks for reminding me,,,,,,,,YES! I did use it on the bug shield,,,,,,,,But I didn't buff the bugshield before applying. (I did #82 on the body panels first with pc). I have the F-150 logo on the bugshield and it didn't seem to harm it at all. I have a sign shop, so replacing it wouldn't have been a big deal anyway.

Yep, #21 is just amazing stuff! I have a suggestion for you though Dynamicd, especially since you have a black vehicle; try topping #21 with #16 - if you can get your hands on some. The combination is just WOW!!!!!!

What is #16?!?!??!

Unfortunately it is now discontinued and a bit difficult to find - unless you raid Mike Phillips' garage!! I was lucky enough to grab two cans before most of the supply dried up. It is an awesome carnauba paste wax that lasts a long time, produces a deep wet shine, and beads like crazy! It shows up on ebay quite often, but the winning bid price ranges from $15 to $60 per can!!

Here's a response from Mike Phillips on another thread:
M16 Professional Paste Wax was introduced approximately in 1951, it was the first automotive wax Meguiar's introduced. Another way of stating this would be Meguiar's only manufactured cleaners and polishes for the first 50 years of their business.

Yep- There is that #16 being mentioned again!! Judging from the popularity, Meguiar's should start bottling it again.

I will look for some in the mean time.

Thanks Mike in Orange,,,and thanks to all the nice comments.

Looks great! Impressive beading photos!

I do alot of photography work here,,,,and aside from that, I go out about every hour of so and check for bird bombs and intruders,,,,I even have a network cam focused on my parking spot!

Anyway, yesterday as I was inspecting, I was so impressed with the water beading on the hood I couldn't help but get a few shots.
