Finally its time to actually polish and wax the car. Step 2 is Meguiar's Deep Crystal Polish which gives a wet look to the paint and deepens the look to it. You can see this in all of the photos where the reflections are deep and sharp, instead of dulled or blurred on a neglected, oxidized car. After the polish is applied step 3 is the Meguiar's Deep Crystal Carnuba Wax. This, along with the cleaner and polish, MUST be done in shade on a relatively dry day. These are fairly common (ie. 99% of the time) in California, but if you live in a cold or humid area, make sure the products are actually drying to a haze. For the wax, I usually allow 20-30 minutes between coats, and I typically apply two or three coats, which lasts for 4-6 months depending on the amount of rain, or how frequently I park the car outside.
