Ah...


I would have sniped it if it was on eBay...hahaha...




Anyways, every Mirror Bright or Mirror Glaze glass bottle has something about the Turkish toweling. Was this a Mirror Glaze product or something entirely different?

Turkish toweling was a type of high quality, very absorbent terry cloth towel with a plush nap, like you find today in a high quality spa towel like a Fieldcrest or a Cannon brand towel.

It was as good as it got and worked great for single stage paints at the time these older products were around.

Remember, microfiber is a *new* technology and until it came along in the mid to late 1990's Meguiar's always recommend high quality, 100% cotton terry cloth towels as they offered a nap.

This polish must have been like #7. What was the Finish Preserver like? In the 60s you couldnt get Meguiars products in the midwest , although there was a limo co.that had Meguiars products shipped in .The polish was # 7, but the wax was a blue liquid, same shade of blue like #16 but a liquid.

Meguiar's first automotive wax was M16 which was introduced in 1951 near as I can find out.

A common and popular liquid wax in the 50's and 60's was Blue Coral and I believe it came in a blue bottle.
