3. Applied Zymol Carbon wax with my hands (fun!). Went through six micro fiber towels removing the residue. Six!

She looks amazing. I’ve never seen it like this. I highly recommend the clay bar. It also made a HUGE difference on the glass. This was the first time I’d ever used one and I learned rather quickly that you really have to keep it well-lubed, or it will leave marks that are quite difficult to remove. Aside from that, it was a breeze. Here’s a pic. What looks like a dent in the rear bumper is a reflection of a car parked across the street. If this thing gets any shinier, it’ll be invisible!
I've never seen such a deep shine—-stunning and gorgeous!

On a side note, my wife's car was in need of surface treatment but instead of a clay bar (which is dead if you drop it once), I used a clay mitt which was extremely easy and effective. Anyway, here were my results with the TW line:
Looks Gorgeous!!
Ditto!
