    since i have started to personally detail my auto 3 years ago... i have used so many products and techniques from so many forums.. hehe medyo OC na nga eh.. as of now i think im contented with this current set up

    car shampoo(personally i don't see any difference sa mga brand)
    next
    polish( meguiars dual action cleaner polish) nagkaka talo lang mga brand ng polish sa aggressiveness nila o abrasiveness
    next
    wax ( turtle wax) base wax ko ito kasi talagang matigas pag nag cure, mas makunat ito keysa branded waxes.
    next
    meguiars nxt tech wax 2.0 ( superb beading and shine) pang ibabaw sa turtle wax na layer. pag nauna ito ilagay matatangal nang turtle wax ang meg's
    next
    mothers reflections top coat ( napaka kintab at add ng additional sacrificial layer) pang top up na lang

    cost effective and performance wise ok...

    halos ganyan din ako... pero every month yung 915 ko then OGE every wash. just to add, mas gusto ko yung Megs NXT na car shampoo over Microtex... softens hard water.

    It's to do with varying terminology used by different companies. So, quick definition of terms first:

    Compound - Highly abrasive product used to quickly cut through paint, for removal of deep scratches and etching.
    Polish - Medium to light abrasive product (less aggressive than compounds). Used to remove swirls, light scratches, and hazing/marring left behind by compounding.
    Glaze - Non-abrasive product. Used to temporarily fill in swirls and light scratches, as well as to add gloss and shine to the paint. Generally not very durable.
    Wax/Sealant - Used for protection of paint from acid rain, oxidization, contamination, etc. Durability from a few weeks to months.
    Spray Wax - Used to top up existing protection.
    Quick Detailer - Used for light cleaning of paint (dust, fingerprints), as well as adding to shine, slickness and gloss.

    Where the confusion comes in is that Meguiar's refers to products defined above as glazes, as (pure) polishes. On the other hand, the NanoSliq, despite whatever it reads in the ad material is a combination spray wax/quick detailer. So the products you mentioned above (making some assumptions) are:

    Meguiar's (Deep Crystal) Polish - glaze
    Meguiar's Ultimate Polish - polish
    Meguiar's (Deep Crystal) Wax - wax
    Meguiar's (Ultimate) Wax - wax
    Microtex Nanoglos (wax) - wax
    Microtex NanoSliq - spray wax/quick detailer

    So, your order would be the polish to remove paint imperfections, glaze to add wetness, gloss and shine, wax to seal in the glaze, and then maintain using a spray wax/QD.

    One other thing - some products contain what are called cleaners, which help remove contamination, as well as old wax and polish residue from the paint. These products generally cannot be put on top of another product, as they will just strip that prior product. NanoGlos contains some cleaners, so if you buy that, you cannot use it over any glaze or previous wax layer.

    Hope that wasn't too confusing - do post if you need further clarification

    Up ko lang ito sa mga detailing newbie.
