Default Autogeekonline Review: 2006 Impala SS gets a Pinnacle Makeover

This is a great write up by forum member LuxuryMobile on Autogeekonline.net. He used several products but the 2 most important ones he used was:

1. Pinnacle XMT 360™ Corrects, Cleans, Seals - A revolutionary product that combines correction, cleaning, and sealing into one simple step. This all-in-one wonder eliminates the need to use a separate mild swirl remover, paint cleanser, and sealant, yet you achieve the same depth, gloss, and slickness! XMT 360™ is total car care made easier.

2. Pinnacle Liquid Souveran Wax - Pinnacle Liquid Souverän Car Wax is the quintessential example of the sizzling shine and winter-tough durability that liquid carnauba car waxes are capable of when formulated using advanced chemistry. Pinnacle Liquid Souverän Car Wax features Brazil’s highest grade carnauba wax fused with Pinnacle’s signature crystalline polymers that were developed right here in south Florida. This advanced blend of high-grade Brazilian carnauba wax and advanced polymers delivers a deep, dazzling shine and a length of paint protection that was once exclusive to synthetic paint sealants.

Here's the Great Write up. Enjoy!

I was contacted by the owner of this 2006 Impala SS to take care of the swirls in the paint. After a full wash and clay bar treatment, the owner inspected the paint with me to decide on a package that would fit in his budget. Although there weren’t any swirls or buffer trails, it could have used a 2-3 step paint correction but that wasn’t the owner’s goal. We decided to clean up some of the oxidation using an all-in-one and then top it with a wax.
Wheels with Meg WB and Daytona Wheel brush, Wash, Full Clay, PCXP with flat orange pad and XMT360, then PCXP with black pad and Pinnacle Liquid Souveran.
Interior Process:
Meg APC on seats and door panels. Panels followed up with Meg #40, and seats with Wolfgang leather conditioner. Glass cleaned with Meg glass cleaner.

Any comments, suggestions, etc. are welcome.

There you have it, a simple 2 step process to correct the paint and apply a wax that creates a really deep shine. Thanks for looking!
