    Polish/wax for the Shelby

    Greetings fellow Shelby owners. I just bought a used 2011 Shelby GT 500, Kona Blue. I washed it the next day and used MacQuires scratch remover wax to buff out a few surface scratches. The bummer is that I noticed some small swirl marks left behind as a result. I know I can buff out the swirl marks with a different product but not sure which one. I have a friend who is a local county police officer and uses IBIZ on his cruiser (charger). He swears by IBIZ and offered to help me wash and wax the Shelby. His cruiser looks immaculate, but I wanted to research before using a product that might ruin my paint job.

    So what do you folks recommend. I don't want to spend 8 hours waxing my car, but want a great shine. Thoughts?

    Thanks much for your advice!

    I like Meguiar's products. Bummer to hear about the swirl marks. Wish I could make a recommendation but I'm not sure what the best product is.

    Hey TraumaCobra,

    I use Griot's products and have been very happy with the outcome. Folks ask if my car is new and are in disbelief when I tell them it's an 07. you can find Griots on line if you want to check out their products and application.

    I like Meguiars Tech Wax for my new cars, and maybe every year or so, I use the clay bar/polish treatment on my '67 Shelby GT350. The paint on that car is 20+ years old and since clay bar'ing it, it looks fantastic. I used to wax brand new Superformance cars before I delivered them to their new owners and the Tech Wax was the best to use.
