I find that grinding the Jeep against large rocks works best for me. You have to be kidding.... I hope.

Re: Best wax and polishing compound?

I'm sorry man, but why!? It's a JEEP!! Not quite as bad as my friend though. He wants to get a CJ-5 and do all this "trick" custom crap to it. Yesterday he was saying how he wants to do a bunch of custom stuff to the dash and use a bunch of billet aluminum to make it look kewl. WTF?!

Meguires makes good stuff....but, it doesn't work well on flat olive drab.

Naah, TOYOTAS!

Check out the new red pinstripes down the side of the Zuk, there is one on the fender flare and one about 1/2 way up the targa. I was passing a friend in a tricked out Toy and fell into him (on only 2 wheels), scraped then whole length, then cut the wheel at the end and brought it back onto all 4 tires. It was awesome, my co-pilot was freaking, just about had a heart attack. Just another day in the woods to me, and at least it didn't go all the way over (again).



Here's the ruthless Toy (276:1 low range!).



This one gives you an idea as to it's size. It's also the ONLY way to travel.



If you mean to keep a nice new shiny vehicle looking like new, I use Liquid Glass polish, it's a little more expensive, but worth every penny.

Re: Best wax and polishing compound?

I always use Liquid Glass - it's real good stuff. It's easy to recoat, too. I don't use compound. A lot of new paint is clear coated and compounding the clear coat isn't necessary. Use a good car soap to get all the grime off, I use "Mothers".
For wheeling just put any old wax on the whole vehicle, let it come to a thick white haze and then let the foliage, mud and rocks buff it to a useful shine. If there is a lot of haze left on the vehicle after you've wheeled it, you've had a BAD day!! Just keep trying until you get the shine you like!!
