    Meguiars equivalent of Griot's paint prep ?

    I've noticed the boys over at Griots have a spray called paint prep, which apparently removes any previous wax on the paint, supposedly makes for a better wax / polish job.

    Couple of questions, what's the Meguiars equivalent ? also is it really necessary if you're going to clay the car anyway, as I'm going to do, before every monthly wax...

    Please advise..

    Best Regards

    There is no equivalent to that product. If you are going to clay, polish or cleaner wax then you won't need this product.

    I did a test on my old headlight with Griots paint prep, thinking the same thing as you.
    I wiped it within the time it took to set the spray bottle down and grab a microfiber.
    You can see the wipe section compared to the runs.
    Not good results at all....immediately melted the plastic.

    So...a yeah...do what the Guz said.

    No. D301 is an abrasive cleaner wax.
