Best detailing products?

Recommended Posts

I’ll add you to a detailers group on FB. There you can ask for info from some of the country’s best detailers. Me personally, I prefer Sonax products.

Allan asks a question similar to what is the best motor oil.

Seems to be a never ending debate with personal preferences.

 

What is most popular these days?

From what I see on forums... Adams.

Zaino used to be popular, some have used Griots Garage for many years.

 

 

I'd like to add that wax for a black car is truly the ultimate answer to Allan's question.

Prep -It's all in the prep (wash, clay, machine polish) to achieve the "what is best"

(Dry the car with a "leaf" blower, apply products with foam applicators, buff off with high quality micro fiber towels.)

Glaze - to fill in mirco defects.

Wax - Synthetic lasts longer (best life?) over Carnauba (best reflection?) Liquid vs paste (ease of application?)

Wax again - to cover any missed areas and complete your labor/number of wax coats diminishing return.

Glaze again - to add two day lasting oils for the ultimate "pop" of shine.

 

Question is about wax not ceramic coatings or other coatings.

Perhaps ease of purchasing the product could be a consideration as to which wax is best.

FWIW I like Meguires….Glaze # 7, Carnauba paste wax over Wax # 26 and their plastic polishes & plastic cleaners Many Walmarts, NAPAs, Pep Boys stock Meguires.

 

I truly think that most product brands are equal and any choice is a wax winner.

Again for shine it is all in the prep.

Depth vs reflection, product life, ease of application and cost perhaps being deciding factors.

 

I am glad, "What is the best beer?" was not the original question :)

 

Black cars are so fun waxing to that ultimate reflective shine and "pop".

Best thing of ever done is use ceramic pro on the entire car. Then I typically just use warm water and a very mild detergent to wash the cars. There’s not much else you can do once the car is ceramic coated. No waxing, no polishing and keeps the finish perfect for a really long time. You almost can’t screw it up.

Allan,

 

best bet is a ceramic coating. If you don't want to do that I recommend Zaino.

Chemical guys is just a bunch of marketing, their actual product is trash.
