Wax and Exterior for White 07 Shelby GT


Recommended Posts

I am looking for the best wax to use on my 2007 Shelby GT, white with silver stripes, as well as someting good to use to remove minor water spots on the stripes. Also, does anyone know where I can find some window scoops to match the factory side scoops on the car?

Seems to me there was a thread a while back that one of our members who was a professional detailer answered all these questions in.

 

As far as personal experience, I've always used Mothers. I stopped by O'Reilly this weekend to stock up for detailing mine, and they didn't have everything I needed so I think I'm going to switch to Meguiars (sp?) for now. I start using the instant detailer to clay bar the car, then after clay barring I use the polish, then finish it off with wax to seal it all. I haven't gotten to the part of my stripes that have the worst water spotting, but what I've done so far, the polish did make a difference.

 

As far as scoops, check out American Muscle. I buy almost all my parts from them. There's a few specialty parts I buy direct from Steeda or Shelby Performance Parts, but AM gets most of my money. These scoops might be what you're looking for, http://www.americanm...or-louvers.html

 

Hope this helps!

 

PS, welcome to the boards!

I am a. If fan and long time user of Meguiars, although, to me, most of the high end and popular waxes all do a very good job. I have been using the Clay bar, polish and the Next Tech wax on my white car and am very happy with the results. I did see they have made a specific line for white cars that I may try next just to see how it works.

Do they really? I'll have to check that out! I wonder, how that would impact the stripes though... all the more reason to get them painted on lol

This is one of those topics where everyone has a personal favorite! Meguiars, Griots, etc., generally good results if used as directed. I've used Meguiars, but over the last couple of years I switched to Zaino and I very much like their products. A bit higher priced, but good.

 

To each their own!

 

I've still got the original vinyl stripes on my SGT. Minor spotting but the real issue now is they are beginning to show their age and starting to fade. Debating spending the dough to have them painted or replacing with something like FlexPaint striping.

My '07 SGT spends most of its time in my garage, having only 10K miles on it in almost 6 years, and is not driven during the winter. Being out of the sun and away from U/V is obviously the best thing for a car finish and the stripes. Heck, I even have the original wiper blades (and tires) on it and all look new.

 

Having said that, I've only applied actual wax to it one time. The only thing I've done other than that is to use Mequiars "Quick Detailer". On the stripes I've only used a product called "Protect All" ( http://www.protectall.com/palong.aspx ). The paint and the stripes look showroom new.

 

Maybe I'll wax it again this summer if I find time...

As stated before... This is all very personal and asking for recommendations open's Pandora's box. So with that disclaimer...

 

Adams Americana.. :rockon:

Or Pinnacle Souveran

I used Souveran on my car this spring and absolutely love it on the white. :drool:

 

Even better than Adams. But pricey...

 

Speaking of pricey...

 

Wolfgang Fuzion is spectacular wax on white and comes with a free refill.
