We like Mequaires cleaner wax. Been using it for a long time. There may be better ones out there, it works good for us.
If your paint has a fair amount of fade/oxidation, I would highly recommend buffing it first. We use a 3M product for that, there are lots of other good ones, too.
Off the top of my head, I don't remember the exact name of the buffing compound we use. I can look when I get home in the morning if you want.
Threw in a couple before and after pics of our Pete. The first one is how it looked the day we bought it. The second and third ones were after buffing and waxing. Granted, the first pic was taken on a sunny afternoon, and probably has too much light exposure. The second pic was taken on a nice evening, but out of direct sunlight. The third pic was also taken on a sunny afternoon, but still looks much better than the first pic. It came from Southern California, and was faded pretty badly.
