Got off work early

Not sure how many of you know about autogeek.net, but I came across it a while back and thought my car and truck could use a little TLC so I bought a power polisher package and decided to try it out today. Below are the results! It's a 3 mile deep shine and no more swirls from automated car washes! Love it!

I use one almost every time I dry a car; I clean about ten cars a week (for work). Use it and a towel. I love them.

Best way to dry i've found is a leaf blower. Hit all the trouble spots first and then start from the top and dry down.

It's a little pricey, but well worth it!

I buy everything from Autogeek...great products and prices. And an excellent forum as well. Sign up as a VIP member and gt 10% off. I also almost always use a leaf blower to dry...but if I must I have a blade and it works well.

Just remember, a polish or buffing compound is designed to cut into the clear. A wax does not. If you use a lot of polish it is not good for your cars clear coat. You have to be careful around corners. If your cars finish has dulled a little, a good polish or buff with some buffing compound can make it look good as new.

I was just looking for like a waxing type deal to help it keep water off better, so the shine'll keep longer without getting water spots from rain, and help the shine pop a little more if you know what i mean. You know what to use?

I use a lint free polishing cloth to get everything off my rims. You can get them almost anywhere and they are reusable. I sure wouldn't wash them with my clothes but they work well. I tell you what I hate is tire foaming products that no matter how long you let it sit, still slings crap down my car. They make a gel that you can use, I've not tried it yet but guarantee that I will.

Zaino products, pricey but last a long time. Worth more than they charge imo.

For those of you that live in So. Cal. there is a company called Mark V in Corona that sells commercial detailing supplies. They do retail sales on site and their stuff is amazing quality. I used to own a mobile detail business in So. Cal and we used Mark V exclusively. I've been considering becoming a distributor here in Colorado for them because I miss their products so much.

Mark V is Mother's commercial product line.
