Question Meguiares quick detail? wax? or polish?

There was a thread a while ago, someone mentioned a quick detail from Meguiares that you can spray on and whipe off. Looking for something to use inbetween waxes. It was an automotive product that was the some as their marine product only less expensive.

Thanks Kirk

Kirk,

I may have been the one who mentioned it. Unfortunately, I can't find any mention of it on the net, they don't seem to have a website.

It's called McGuire's quick detail and I usually buy it in Discount Auto or NAPA Auto parts. It's great in between waxes as a quick way to maintain the shine and protect your finish. It works very quickly, literally just spray and wipe until dry.

Default Maguires Quick Detail

Kirk,

The stuff works real well on clean waxed finishes. I use it on my vehicles and my boat.
If you are faithful with keeping the boat clean and waxed the stuff makes the boat look like show room condition.
When you spray it on a clean vehicle it buffs out quickly and leaves a nice showroom shine. If you put on a fairly clean vehicle it is much harder to wipe off and the rusults are not as good.
Good luck with the stuff.
BJ's has it available with a small spray container with an additional 1/2 Gallon refill attached.

The stuff wotks great as long as you have a good coat of wax on the boat.

I tryed to make my own by diluting liquid wax with water as mentioned above, but it does not work as well.

Rain-X also has a spray on marine wax that is thicker than the detail stuff. It works great but is about $5 a bottle at Wal-mart. It really works great on windshields and stainless.

The detailer stuff doesn't seem to get the water marks off as well but is easier to use.
