Here's some of the stuff I use when I detail.... Left to right.
Meguiar's Car wash - wash three times before waxing
Turtle wax Ultra Gloss wax - wasn't inmpressed with it.
Meguiar's NXT spray wax - this stuff is the bomb, easy on and easy off and very good shine
Dupont Teflon wax - mostly for the top and the hood area
Meguiar's Hot Rims wheel cleaner - good haven't found anything better to clean the rims with
Meguiar's Endurance tire dressing - best stuff in the world for tires, (lasts a long time on there). I've only been able to find it regularly at Pep Boys. It goes on a little like a gel (but a just a little thinner) use a good sponge rubber applicator for best result.
Mr Clean carwash system - they don't call him Mr Clean for nothin!!
and finally the hand buffer - $14.00 from Walmart and works great.
