I see someone stocked up on Megs #16. I have three cans of it and have been happy with it on white paint.

Detailing was my hobby back when I was in college-i loved laying down a fresh coat of wax on my precious 2001 Malibu with white paint.

Don't have much time for it anymore, but my wife gets me a new wax for Christmas most years.

The #16 is great to play with.

I melted some down and poured it in an empty deodorant stick.

It was great for applying wax by machine.

Auto detailing is my 1st OCD thing that I really dove into and have really gone down the rabbit hole. I am fairly regular and active on Autopia and a few other forums and Facebook groups. All under my same user name.

The deodorant stick sounds like a good trick. I prefer to wax by hand but might have to try that out.

Also, the Natty's Red is probably my favorite smelling wax of all time.
