Car Care and Detailing Thread

Others mentioned I should start this thread in my other thread. And while I won't have the new car for a while, I'd like to hear some thoughts and recommendations so I can have most of it on hand before the car shows up. My other thread had a lot of great posts in it and you guys have been a big help.

While black cars looks great clean, keeping it relatively clean in Phoenix might be the death of me. But I'll sure as shit give it my best shot.

I actually like cleaning and waxing our current cars but it's not like I am being meticulous about it. I've never had a car with rims either and I know those can get dirty quick. I've never owned a dark colored car and I've never had a car with leather. I plan to take really good care of this car and would like some tips on doing so. But I'm just a ****ing n00b.

I'll throw some links out from Amazon as I mention things.


Some of the things already on my list are:
1. Not sure if everyone recommends wool wash mitt over micorfiber here but many people I know do?
http://www.amazon.com/Mothers-Genuin...wool+wash+mitt

2. Grit guard and two wash buckets. One for rinse and one for soap/water.

http://www.amazon.com/Mothers-Genuin...wool+wash+mitt

3. Waffle Weave Drying towel. There are tons of towels out there but this seems to be able to take up a lot of water.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001Q8DMA0/...I21164SXVV1AWB

4. Car Wash

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009IQXFO/...b_recs_2_title


Some mention that after washing you should use a paint cleanser before waxing. But wondering if washing then clay baring is sufficient prior to wax?

I've seen this P21S Paintwork Cleanser mentioned on a few reads. Looks like good use for water spots and swirls prior to waxing if needed. Not sure if you would do entire car first or just use it for bad spots before waxing?

http://www.amazon.com/P21S-12350B-Pa...twork+Cleanser


Also, a company called Zaino has great reviews and recommendations. They have a package that looks like it includes all products I'd need together including wash, polish, wax, leather and tire care.

http://www.zainostore.com/mm5/mercha...y_Code=prokits



I do not have a polisher and would need to get one of those as well but not sure where to start on that front.



Can't wait to see what you guys have tried and recommend.

No. It strips the natural oils. Use cetaphil only.

I will do further research tonight - once away from office - but can someone brief me on the two-bucket cleaning technique? Are any of you doing this? ... Seems to be prevalent, out there.

Itís as simple as fill one with soapy water and one with just water. Use the latter to rinse your mitt before returning it the soapy bucket. Also may look to add some grit guards to your buckets.

Okay - that makes sense - I never watched any of the videos - just saw some, so I knew that that was a technique - I'm going to start manually washing my car, effective immediately.

Yes. Buy one of those giant packs of 100 Microfiber towels. Change out towels very frequently and never ever rewipe with a dirty one.

Never dry your car by hand. I use my leaf blower to blow the air off.

Touch your car as little as possible. If you can get away with washing it with just a power washer and foamer, then that's ideal.

well I'm hopeful a good waxing will help with minimizing water spots, as well. I swear this stuff is like porno to me.

I have a question - have any of you tried the Meg's NXT Generation Tech Wax?

Yes. Finishing the bottle I have. Megs NXT 2.0. I feel the protection is decent but it takes a bit of time to fully dry on the paint and it's fairly hard to get off compared to other waxes. Leaves a streak-like appearance on black that takes numerous passes to buff off. I only use it on my gold car or my wife's white car now.

Here's my go to for black. Easy on and off, seems to last a decent amount of time. Gives that deep look to black.
