Here's what I used last time:
Armour all
Turtlue wax tire foam for the engine bay and the tires
Turtle wax f21 wheel cleaner
Simple Green for the engine bay
Turtle wax zip wax car wash
Turtle wax

The other time I washed it I used meguires wash and I likd that alot better but all the turtle wax stuff was on sale.

I want to get clay bar and a buffer for Christmas.

Aboat 12 hours after I cleaned it and took that picture I took it out and got it all muddy inside and out!

Geebus I wouldn't even be able to list all my cleaning stuff lol.

Meguiars and mothers are the go to's when I'm REALLY detailing.
Nxt is my cheap everyday stuff just for a quick clean

I always keep meguiars shine wipes for the interior in the truck

Simple green gets used about once a month under the truck and under the hood

And I use atv/dirtbike plastic shine stuff for all the black plastic on the exterior

Qtips for the lug holes

I use whitewall cleaner and a brush to clean my bed mat

Oh and I got a filter for the hose so no hard water spots!

Well I use flour for removing wax.

Sprinkle some on the cloth you are using to remove the dried wax.
The hand buffing now becomes effortless.

An old man told me this trick many years ago. I thought he was joking untill I tried it.

It works AWESOME!!

And you use it dry..
Are you sure your not chef Ramsey ? Ive heard some stuff in this trade , but this takes the cake ,lol

Meguiar's Quick Detailer
Meguiar's Interior Detailer cleaner
Meguiar's Supreme Shine protectant
Meguiar's Hot Shine
Eagle One Never-Dull wadding polish
Stoner Invisible Glass

Why: I don't know any better!

EDIT: You can see I like Meguiar's products. It smells good!

I'm not putting Meguiars stuff down but I don't us it personally at home or at the shop we use 3M products . Its very high end and very expensive . Basically it comes down to how you use the products.

But any expert in automotive finish's or detailer will tell you the only way to make a wax job last is to seal it . Now alot of guys think that doing a second wax job the next day will seal it , Nope that dont work . When wax dries it leaves behind pinholes allowing oxidation to get to the paint under it . The only way to seal it is with a sealer that doesn't let the wax dry out .

Now heres my question does Meguiars sell a Sealer ?

Yes, Meguiars sells sealants numbered as M20 and M21 2.0.
I've always been confused on the definitions between a sealant and a wax. I have a can of Meguiars NXT 2.0 tech paste wax which is discussed on Meguiars forums as both a wax and a sealant. On the flip side I've seen Meguiars M20 listed as a cleaner wax although it is a sealant. From what I've read about Meguiars sealants on the forums is that M21 2.0 will last a little longer than NXT 2.0 tech wax.

I washed and waxed my truck today while enjoying our 80 degree weather. I tried Meguiars NXT 2.0 paste wax for the first and like the results so far. I did get a good workout as I put on too much wax as it's hard to see wax on silver paint and tend to apply too much. Meguiars Gold Class paste wax smells better though.

I bought some of the turtle wax ice car wash and wax. It's some awesome stuff. I also got the Meguires chrome wheel cleaner, and Meguires tire shine arousal can. They are 2 for 9 dollars at Advance right now. I also scanned the clerance isle and I found 5 microfiber towels for $ 0.55 cents a piece. I also use the More shine window cleaner.
