First off, what are you working on and what shape is the paint in? Are you using a buffer or by hand?

are you using just a orbital waxer or a nice porter cable type polisher?

I would check out adams polishes. Google that and it will come up. They have stuff spcifically for those kinds of polishers. I just used their buttery wax and its awesome. IMO they make the best stuff, if you have never used a clay bar on it I would do that as well. I need to get one of those polishers.
