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?

If you guys are lookin for top quality stuff...Adams Polishes...This stuff is awesome. Not sold at Crappy Tire or Walmart. Gotta go to their website..adamspolishes.com and find a dealer. Usually it will be a hot rod customizer or a professional detail shop. You will not be disapointed...graet product for great price compared to whats out there. Trust me..or ask my wife......I'm a picky, picky SOB.....and detail as a side job...Only use the best.

As far as I understand clay bar is for removing heavy contaminents like industrial fall out, tree sap that kind of thing, it physically shears the contaminents off of your paint, not that there's any harm in doing it, but maybe an extra step not needed. Meguiars has been around for a long time (used it over 20 years ago) when you could only buy it as a professional brand from auto body and marine suppliers. Any way you look at it, it's gonna be a lot of work for show room shine, minimum 3 steps.
First get yourself a good DA polisher, try not to to use an orbital.
Use a good surface cleaner (liquid), polish, then a sealant or even better a glaze, and finally a good yellow wax or other final protectant. I actually like the Meguiars pure carnuba wax, because you can buff the crap out of it with the a good soft polishing bonnet and really bring the depth out of your paint. I don't know how it compares in longevity to the polymer protectants out there now, but I think if you maintain with the likes of the waterless quick detailers will help it last through the season.
And the last but not least most important part (to me) and the reason why I can't get my cars polished every year, is try and get it done in a controlled environment like a shop or garage you can control the heat and dust etc..., nothing worse than getting half way through when you can't control the weather.
BTW... for those here in the B.C. lower mainland, that don't have the time to do it yourselves, my recommendation is to stay away from Supershine Auto Detail.
For the very reason I just mentioned I though I'd save my own time (worth way to much, lol) and have our Mazda 6 professionally polished...
I really wasn't that impressed with what I got for over $400.00. When I walked in an saw the 12" disc orbital that just cut polished the car, I got queesy.
without going into too many details with what i though i was going to get for my money, (shoulda went with the hookers & blo) it did look beautiful the day I picked it up... Damn cloudy skys. But not so pretty when the sun hits it directly now, so needless to say lesson learned, but I still wouldn't recommend except to 'Stay away'

I use P21S on mine. Have since I got the truck and I use it on paint, side windows and mirrors. Never on the windsheild. It does not leave a white stain on trim parts as other products use and you don't need to wait for it to dry. It uses beeswax as part of it's formula. Easy on and easy off with a shine and protection that lasts.
