Detailing kits, polish & wax

Any of you guys recommend any products for the exterior of my car? The weathers getting warmer, so I plan to start reviving my car and making it the best it can look with what it has. Also any headlight restoration kits? I used the turtle wax kit but my headlights fogged up pretty darn bad again

Mothers clay bar system, one of the best investments I've ever made for exterior detailing. Takes about 2 hours or so to do but the finish is incredible when completed.

If it's black, use turtle wax black kit, you can find it at walmart or any auto store. Then use a good once a year polish that comes in orange container. Then I'd suggest using some kind of clay bar or whatever. Idk this was something I was wondering about also... Anyone?

Those don't last a year, I hate to say. Good wax is expensive. I use the hi-temp bahama momma wax from top of the line. Adams is good stuff just more expensive. I look over on the detailing forums.
On google.. Get my ideas from here and there. Clay only needs to be done every 1 to 2 years. Make sure you strip all wax before polishing. Regular Soap and water will do.

I actually bought turtle black box not too long ago, when I first got my 'stang. So I'll probably be using it for now.

guess it depends really how often you wash your vehicle.. lol. its lasting me well though.. may need to buy more of the wash and detail spray before anything else, but you can buy everything separately so its not bad.

You like that?, I used it on my old car and trashed about every micro fiber I had, I like the Meguiars Ultimate with Meguiars glaze

I use products from Griot's Garage. Expensive, but really worth it. The Peterson Automotive Museum uses the stuff exclusively.
