Patrick, I guess I spaced out on that one and I was looking right at it. doh! I'll try to get it edited . . .

Stogie, 845 is listed under the #s heading . . . and Super Double Coat should be 476s.

There were some other items I didn't list mainly because they're not brought up or discussed as often. We'll see how it goes . .

I think this list could use some updating due to the new products that have come to market in the two years since the OP posted this wonderful list. This is what I've got. If somebody has some more, feel free to add.

105 - Meg's Ultra-Cut Compound
205 - Meg's Finishing Polish
SIP - Menzerna Super-Intensive Polish
PFW - Lake Country Purple Foamed Wool Pad

We've acquired them over the years, and they are rather universal as well.

Why dont you have anything listed for Mother's products? I understand not having Zymol up there since most people wont even spend the $15 for thier mainstream cleaner wax which shines great but doesnt last long but the way. But you ignore Mother's and promote Meguiars products which besides Black Magic are the worst products on the market! Why?
