Well I did some spring cleaning today, and reminded me of this thread that I saw awhile back, but never got around to commenting on. I've been slowly but surely stocking up on detailing supplies, in preparation for an upcoming autoshow/cruise in about a month.
My go to was Chemical guys products last season. It was the first time i really strayed away from Meguires products, and i have to say i was really happy with the quality. I buy cheapy microfibers from walmart, just for the basic wipe downs and wheel duties. But have a set of some plush ones i recently bought that i'll be giving a try. Heres my list of chemical guys products.
V38 polish (just ordered never used)
Jetseal 109 (fantastic stuff)
EZ creme glaze
Synthetic Quik Detailer (not recommended)
And i purchased a 5.5 inch backing plate from them, which i like because it it somewhat flexible. I Use their Hex pads on my DA polisher as well. I've only used the Orange pad, and black pad, but ordered a kit with each pad included plus their pad cleaner. So i will eventually try those out next week.
My list of other random stuff in my arsenal.
Meguires Ultimate Compound
Meguires ultimate polish
meguires ultimate wax
Meguires foaming tire shine
Meguires crystal glass cleaner
Turtle wax wheel cleaner
And a whole bunch of other products that i cant think of off the top of my head.
I only started messing with a DA polisher towards late last season, when i hit my stang with a full 2 day detail marathon. I washed, clayed, used v34, v36, a glaze, jetseal, and a wax, and it literally took out 95% of the imperfections on the car. But, being a novice, i had started to notice some light ghost marks from a couple areas, and some very very miniscule marring the never fully got worked out. So I'm hoping that next week i'll go back with the v36 and v38 to fully finish out the car with the right pads for the job.
