Use the Migliore interior and tire products because they give a nice clean matte finish on tires and dash or Meguiar's hyperdressing for the same reason.

Thanks for the info Rafal!
I have read online from self claimed pro detailers that they use different products depending on the vehicle's color for the best results. I don't know if that holds water but since we both have a silver colored vehicle I'm willing to give some of the products you use a try.

Does the vehicle's color dictate what detailing products one should use?

Oh! Thanks for the link! I don't know why I haven't seen that before now!

Turtle wax ice car wash
Turtle wax color match red (meh)
Turtle wax polish compound

Yeah dish soap is a big no no too much degrading to the clear. Might look good at first but after a while it will turn ur clear coat into nuthin.

I have never followed the thing where certain products are made for certain color cars.... the ford silver just doesn't have much "pop" to it, so I personally like the Zaino products on my truck best. I don't think there is a better product for a certain color at all.... I do tend to use sealants more on lighter colored cars (silver/white) and carnuaba waxes on darker colors simply because the lighter paints don't have a whole lot of depth to them so the wax would protect nicely but not give off the truly "wet" look like a sealant would on the lighter paint.
