I washed, buffed, and waxed the hell out of my car yesterday and I am pretty impressed at the shine it has now. I used this stuff called Turtle Wax black box that is made for black cars and I love it. It hid all the swirl marks and makes the paint look wet while giving a nice deep shine....

This stuff is like a 7 step process and can get messy (the wax is black and i had to use gloves) but it is WELL worth it. I think I found my new wax for sure.

Jon let me know what you think about the clear seal. I have been reading about it and I am very curious about it. I need to order detailer, wheel stuff and leather cleaner from them at least.

Looks great Joey!

no idea what it is made of but its a polymer protectant with uv blockers to put over detail jobs to last up to 9 months. 1/4oz. can do an entire car and it can be used over other peoples products too. wipe it on sparingly with a light mist on the pannel and grab a beer cause your done. you don't wipe it off or anything. its a top coat to any detal job.

its in a 6oz. bottle for 30 bux so it better be damned good. lol.

I rubbed 2 kinds of the prep shit into mine the other day and then the clay bar. put on polish. Waxed it up and it's ready. I was always leary of the clay bar. It seemed like it would be hard to do. I did it in half an hour or less. Piece of cake and did the job, too. Paint is smoooooth.

Ok now that I see what Jon got I am jealous. Z7 is the mess when it comes to quick detailing at a show. The tire shine is good too, doesn't sling and the leather in a bottle will bring back some nasty looking leather. I am not a fan of how the leather one smells, I call it butt in a bottle but its only like that in the bottle. The rest of the stuff they make has a fruity smell but nothing over powering.

The car wash takes a tiny capful and it makes tons of suds.

Dang it now I need to go order. Sad

I'm lazy and I don't want to look for it, but I thought someone had recommended a good tire shine product. What I have now is a spray bottle that won't get onto your paint on days with absolutely no wind.

I'm trying Armor All tire shine..comes with a sponge applicator that seemed to work well the 1 or 2 times I used it last fall, if I remember correctly.
