Tired of posts showing off cars, let's talk Detailing
 

 
What's in everyone's arsenal for Detailing?

2 weeks ago I bought a Griot 6in Orbital. Best purchase I've made. I did my wife's car last week. It had A LOT of water spots on it from the sprinklers. Ended up using an aggressive compound from 3m. After that I used Chemical Guys Blacklight. It's a 3in1 type of product - Glaze, Sealant, Gloss Enhancer. Then used Chemical Guys Jetseal. Finally finished off the car with Meguiar's Liquid Wax.

Ended up doing the same with my Camaro. Used a less aggressive Compound from Meguiar's called Ultimate Compound. My Orbital ended up dying on me. I was heated. Bought another one. Hopefully it doesn't break again. If anyone has any suggestions let me hear it. My car is looking a whole lot better after this detailing. Same with my wife's car. Car feels nice and smooth. Water spots come right off after using some quick detailing spray as well.

So again, what's in everyone's arsenal.

Let's get this thread popping I have a griots 6" orbital for 6 years now and that thing is harsh af like your arms feel like sh*t after 10 minutes. Last summer chemical guys had a sale on everything so I copped a torx fx10 and man that thing is smooth af I can do a bus with that thing. OP you need to buy the chemical guys waterless wash concentrate that sh*t is the best.

Hell no.
I'm going to attempt fixing headlights this weekend if it's nice out.

All you need is

- Painters tape to mask off around the headlight.
- 2500 & 3500 Grit Wetsandpaper
- Sanding block if you have one. Makes it easier.
- Polish with an Orbital, or by hand if you want. An Orbital will help a lot more though.
- Sealant

Bruh, I ain't got time for that.

I pay a a highly rated and awarded company to come to my house and do a mini detail on the 96 if she dirty. If she needs a makeover, I take her to the best, multiple award winning detail shop in town(where I live).

My old lady(96 SS) is pampered.

I need to invest in a polishing machine/drill thingy. The most I ever went to detailing my car was foam cannon, wash, clay bar, wash, then wax. I also want to give that ceramic coating a shot. I also need to start buying and using the decontamination sprays.

+1 on the two buckets. One for soap and the other to scrub off the dirt on the sponge. And man black cars are hard to keep clean/looking flawless since it’s easier to see the “spider-web” scratches. My old Lexus was black and it was a bi*ch to maintain.

I knew I should have gotten that Torx
Is the waterless wash safe on waxes and sealants?

I've never used the 2 bucket method. I understand why people do it but to me it doesn't make sense to take your dirty mitt, scrub it out in 1 bucket which then the water becomes dirty then put it into the second bucket possibly bringing that dirty water into the 2nd bucket.

We all keep the water hose by us when we wash the car so what I do is once I'm done with a section, I hose the wash mitt down. IMO that's a bit more effective than relying on a scrubber at the bottom of the bucket.

As far as spider web scratches I think the V22 from CG helps with that. I was going to use it in my Camaro since it's black but thankfully I didn't have the web effect.

Yeah, they are a bi*ch to keep right, but they are beautiful when well maintained. I 'm in Arizona, and its hot as hell. none of my cars sit outside, and the two that I'm not driving, they are detailed and covered with an indoor Weather Tech car cover. I put the work in to keep em top notch. one of the 3 i have is a 98' BMW 740i, she still looks new.

Yeah man I was skeptical about it too and put it like this I'm on my second gallon man when you are done you have literally washed and waxed your car. Over the winter that's what I use. It was to a point I was charging my friends $50 to wash their cars with it.

Just make sure you do it in the shade and out of direct sunlight.

I feel you but I like the act of doing something's myself yeah I can afford to hire someone to do it but I like to learn and apply it's just another hustle under my belt I don't do it for a living but I know if I wanted to I could.

That's what I'm saying all you need are a few microfiber towels. And a good spray bottle I post my setup later.

You need UV lights and a legit clean area plus that sh*t needs time to cure like 48 hours depending on how many coats you apply.
