    Default Favorite Car Detailing Brands / Products

    Just curious what people are using for detailing these days.

    I'd like to get an interior leather cleaner / conditioner, exterior wax, scratch remover, things like that.

    Having not had a car I gave 2 shits about for 5 years I have been out of the game and see these Chemical Guys & AutoGlym products, but I'm aware they likely could just be a companies with cool marketing where some classic Meguiar's maybe does just as good a job for less.

    303 protectant is awesome for interior. Not shiny/greasy but makes leather vinyl and plastic just look clean and new

    Ammo? Great YouTube channel
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    Sonax for pretty much everything

    303 makes some awesome protectants

    A few places carry Sonax in town. But if you want a wicked place to go to, then go here - https://carzilla.ca/

    Recommendations for a one-step polish for new black vehicle to use with a porter cable orbit polisher. Just minor swirls to take care of prior to sealing with a ceramic coating.

    I don't think Uno is a good option for pre-coating polish. It'll prevent the coating from bonding properly.

    Just use CarPro Essence if you want to a single product that'll polish and prep prior to coating.

    Good point. I missed the coating part.

    I agree with using Essence as a one step.

    @gpomp what’s your recommendation for safety removing bug guts from bumper and mirrors between full car washes?
