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.

I bought a new black 18 Ram Laramie and wanted to get a membership to green lantern to keep it clean as much as I want....then I start reading how automatic washes are bad for paint jobs. I've never had a car where I cared enough about the paint job. Is this going to ruin my paint with scratches?

Yes.

First you'll notice a few little micro scratches when the sun shines just right. Then you'll be able to see them all over the car. Then your finish will be dull and you'll be left wondering why your car never looks shiny and new, despite washing.

Think about it - how many overly dirty and muddy cars with caked gravel go through that wash on a daily basis? All of that dirt and junk is removed by those rotating brushes. The particles stick in the brushes and scratch the F out of every subsequent vehicle. Imagine how much crap is in there after a single day of running.

And a straight black paint job will show the swirls and scratches the most.

I recommend finding a touchless car wash or do it yourself.

Loochy is right. If you care about this car, don't take it to a car wash. Do it yourself. For less than $100 you can get up and running with the right tools and never have to worry.

Does anyone have experience using those “pressure washers” that dispense soap using a small tank attached to a garden hose? I saw a few setups on the Chemical Guys site and wondered if they were any good. I like the idea, but maybe the execution isn’t very good.

This is the top of my shit list. Messing with someone's vehicle is complete bullshit.

If you mean the ones that aren't really a pressure washer, then yes, I have one. I'm not trying to simulate a pressure washer, but I love the idea of being able to soap up the car before touching it with a mitt. If you want it to function like a pressure washer, forget it. There really isn't a substitute. I don't like using high pressure to blast the dirt into my paint so I don't use one.

Protip: Buy a cheap used car that will last about three years. Never clean it. Buy another cheap three year car when it breaks down, get $500 to have the old one towed to the junkyard. #Winning.

I’m on the road traveling for work. l can’t wash it myself. It was so damn dirty. All the car washes have the brushes that touch the car. So l had to drive for 40 minutes round trip to find a touchless car wash. Worth it!
