Detailing product help

What should i use if I plan on doing a good detailing job on the truck
I started using liquid Ice, but I find it that it doesn't last as long.
What do you use, and do you clay your truck?

I mainly use Meguiars products and now that the Mother's product are pretty stuff also, there are a couple of other brands that are good also. As for clay bar....I have never done it BUT if you do it right your truck will look awesome!!!

I was checking on FTW and I seen a site that is just for How-To-Detailing and that might help also http://paintcare-n-detailing.com/

Here is another site http://www.autogeek.net/

I've clay bar'd the truck before. Works very well. If you get the package to do it, save the Quick detailer for other uses and just use soap and water for the clay lube. I wouldn't think you would need to clay more than once or twice a summer. Is this for your new truck?
I use Meguires.

First wash the truck down with a de-greaser like Dawn dishwash soap etc.
Then run a clay bar over the whole truck.
Now the truck needs a sealer
there are 2 on the market that I recommend
Klasse
Zaino
both of these products work amazing.
Personally I'm using Klasse now as it gives a deeper shine to the colour.
Both products should be put on with a porter cable
and removed by hand
heres the results after a 3 step Klasse application.







This is 3 year old paint btw

Klasse can be found at
http://www.eshine.ca/
they are def your one stop shop for detailing.
Talk to Chris and tell him Biz with the Cobra sent you,
ask him about a possible sponsorship

Zaino can be found at
http://www.carpolish.ca/


after its been sealed I use a zaino product as a quick detalier

I use Z6

Hope that helps, any other questions just asked...I have tried almost every product on the market.

Biz, your car looks outstanding!
Where can I find a PC polisher, and what do they cost?
