Just stumbled on this thread and its awesome...the flour thing on the first page is probably one of the strangest things ive ever heard but im gonna try it...

I have four shelves of stuff but i narrowed it down to a few favorites

on the truck i use...
maguires deep crystal precleaner
maguires deep crystal polish
maguires deep crystal carn wax
maguires gold class tire gel (dont know why im always in dirt)
mothers wheel and tire cleaner
10 in orbital buffer w/ wool pad
ALOT of microfiber cloths haha
of course simple green for those damn wheel wells

On the car...
Turtle wax ICE clay bar
Maguires deep crystal polish
Poor Boys world black hole glaze/sealant
Poor Boys world natty's blue paste wax
same tire and wheel products and buffer

Interior i just decided to by armor all scented protectent and it smells good but i think they cut out the shine for it, so i decided to go back to using armor all ultrashine

^^ Nice list ^^
I don't care for Armor All as it leaves a greasy feel. I use Meguiars Interior Detailer.

Sure you can but it may take a couple of applications. Use a pressure washer in between applications. I used to use a local self serv car wash high pressure hose with their degreasser. They have replaced the degreaser with something else now. To clean my engine bay I'll use my pressure washer with a degreaser. Then follow up with a detailer spray.

Wow you guys are nuts, i need to do some reading in this section to prepare me for the coming summer.

So far all i've used on the truck was rain, and two visits to the car wash, but i'm worried they'll scratch the paint..
