It’s inevitable that every car will accumulate a carbon build-up on the rear of their car over time due to the exhaust gasses that release these particles as a part of the combustion process. A simple wash does well to clean most of the mess on the surface but what bonds to the top coat of your clear coat and paint eventually dulls paint right under your nose. The effect of this is almost impossible to remove with just a wash alone. It only takes a few steps to clean deeper and rejuvenate your car’s paint, making it look like new again!


The Meguiar’s range covers all your cleaning and detailing needs to get your car back to its original shine.


Step 1. Wash your car. We’ve used Meguiar’s Ultimate Wash and Wash Anywhere for a quick and effective clean. Wipe dry.



Step 2. Use Meguiar’s Smooth Surface Quik Clay Kit to restore a smooth-as-glass feel to your paint by removing bonded contaminants from the surface. We’ve paid attention to the exhaust area as this had the most build-up. Again, wipe dry for the next step.


Step 3. Polish the cleaned surface with Meguiar’s Ultimate Compound to remove paint defects, scratches, swirls, oxidation, water marks, blemishes, etc. Apply and buff.


Step 4. Seal the finish with Meguiar’s Ultimate Liquid Wax to leave your paint with ultimate shine and depth, a hydrophobic finish and long-lasting protection. Apply, haze and buff for a mirror-like finish.


As you can see by our results above, even if you think your car is clean – think again! The effects of our environment, the elements and time slowly take their toll on your paint. With these Meguiar’s products, bring your car back to top form with a few simple steps and some elbow grease!
