I just use NXT Paste Wax (http://www.meguiars.com/whatsnew/nxtproduct_page.cfm?SKU=G-12711) the W9006 (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?sku=W-90&store=%) pad and my PC.

At first I was a little worried about applying a paste wax with my PC but many here on MOL suggested it so I thought I would give it a try. I will tell you this paste wax applies better then the NXT Liquid Wax via PC.

I was a little unsure how much paste to apply to the pad to "prime" it. I did end up applying too much paste to the pad at first, laying a nice THICK layer on the paint! Note to self... a little goes a LONG ways! This appears more true with a paste wax.

Once I figured out how much paste I needed to apply to the pad I was able to lay a nice thin easy to remove layer down. It seemed that the paste spread over the surface of the paint slightly easier than the liquid. There was something different about applying the paste over the liquid and I can't pinpoint it, just seemed to work better. Using a spoon to apply the paste to the pad worked very well and is only slightly slower than applying a liquid wax to the pad. Also the pad does not get saturated as easy as they can with a liquid wax.

Here is how I applied the paste to my w9006 pad using the back of a spoon:

I am going to change to the paste just as long as it continues to perform as it did today.

Oh... it looks like a can is going to last me a lifetime, I used very little.

I am sold! Did I mention it looks good to?

Maybe we should start including a little plastic spoon, or spatula with each can of wax? :D

I gave NXT Paste Wax (http://www.meguiars.com/whatsnew/nxtproduct_page.cfm?SKU=G-12711) using the W9006 (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?sku=W-90&store=%) pad and my PC a try on my truck.

Here are the end results... this is a great way to apply a paste wax.

I used NXT Paste Wax as my LSP using the dual action polisher on "The Vette Lady's" Corvette.

This is the original clear coat finish on this 1982 Corvette so I didn't want to get any more aggressive than the M80. In person the paint looks like wet glass, it really came out nice.

It will be on display at the upcoming Route 66 Rendezvous (http://www.route-66.org/). Barry Meguiar will actually be at this event receiving their 2005 Lifetime of Achievement Award.


Special Guest include,

Kustom car creator George Barris
racing artist Kenny Youngblood
Chip Foose from the custom car television show “Overhaulin’”
Queen of late night "B" movies, Cassandra Peterson, better known as Elvira

Looks to be a great show this year, if you're in the area be sure to check it out...
