Claybar and 3 step spring strip/polish/caranuba wax and monthly waxing, protectant every wash, tire cleaner, billet rim polish with a power ball. One thing i've started to do is color match my towels, green microfiber for rocker panels, yellow terry cloth for hood and upper body, blue microfiber for rims/pipes that way I don't contaminate any other areas from the heavy dirt collecting areas.
Thats a great idea.

I definitely need to do that. My Caliber is a "practice" for when i get my Ram

It's a little funny. It's something I noticed living in Oakland, guys that worked for their $5 at each light normally got it, the guy with the sign *need money for food* generally went without. Just be careful, they may have washed a dirty Prius a few lights ago, and that smell will NEVER come out

Is that supposed to be funny? The guy asked for advice on washing/waxing his new truck, not your opinion of the happenings at the street corner. Well you see Barnyard it is called "FREEDOM of SPEECH" the same thing that with what you just did. I didn't see you offering anything up other than criticism. So go back and stand in front of your own judgment window.

There is a new product here in Canada in Canadian Tire it is called Auto Glym. This stuff is awesome, I picked up some quick detailer and interior cleaner and its great.

For wax I have used the Meguires NXT and it works well. Good product for sure

Give me till Sunday. I'm going to spend some time this weekend washing/waxing my new 2010 (after a 60 mile training ride for the MS150).

I'll post before/after pictures of what the Zaino Z-2 wax looks like. It's some pretty slick stuff. I am not as nuts as some of the guys on the Corvette forums. They've got some guys over there that wax cars and make them look like mirrors using this stuff.
