I recently used the UWP and it worked out great. As for the towel and applicator pad I would use them only for wax steps wether applying or removing as the wax clearly shows on the black.
Nice write up.

When it comes to the liquid version, you could feel residue on the towel but you could not see it. My thoughts are its virtually impossible to find a clean portion of the MF for the final wipe.
Remember one of the selling points of the Ultimate Liquid is that synthetic polymers wont leave any white residue behind.
Again, my concern is about not being able to see dirt picked up by trim pieces or areas that could have been missed with washing.
Gotcha, I hadn't considered the zero residue with the liquid. Interesting thought, I didn't account for dirt left on trim pieces because I was thinking about the paint only which would be totally clean if you'd done any sort of clay/cleaner step.
You could reserve the black mf for paste version only or other waxes.
Awesome write up, Ryan - thanks for taking the time to document your process so thoroughly. Good stuff.

Today my first new Meguiars product arrived - the Ultimate polish. I'll be staring at that bottle on the shelf for the next month or so...sigh.
Looks like rain is coming this week, I expect to take some pictures of water beading and give a full report on how the finish holds up.
( MODS, a side note if this thread could be moved to 2011 Product Reviews, that would be great)
Nice pics! I am really looking forward to using this line of products
UPDATE ON WATER BEADING
The water beading of the Ultimate Wax is quite good as you can tell. These pictures are from the most recent rain in So Cal.
