    I'm a big detailing buff (pun intended). I'm one of those guys who sometimes washes his cars after every use. I've got a pretty intensive routine that I follow, some may consider it overboard. But I was wondering what brands of detailing products you guys are using?

    I'm a big fan of Griot's Garage. They are a little more expensive than what you would find at Wal-Mart or Target, but they are well worth it. I use everything from basic car wash, interior cleaning, and polish/wax. They don't have much a selection of synthetic wax materials, so hopefully some of you guys have some good suggestions for paint cleansers and such.

    If you are one of those guys who likes to wash your car after every use, I would suggest with a quick detailer. All you have to do is spray it on and wipe. You do not have to worry about scratches because the quick detailer acts as a lubricant. I recommend Meguirar's quick detailer. I use it and it works like a charm.

    Griot's Garage is also my favorite. They have excellent supplies down there.

    I like Meguirs and used to love Rain Dance, which they stopped making out here. In the olden days, there was something called "Liquid Ebony" that was wonderful for detailing. It gave an incredible lasting shine.

    I dont stick to one particular brand as Ive found there some brands that do a better job than others in one area but not in others. Most of the stuff I use is a bit more expensive than other products but in my opinion it is worth it. I have found Bowdens Own is great for body wash and wheel cleaner, Meguiars for tire gel, Quick Detail and light waxing (by hand) and I love California Customs Purple Polish.

    I'm not far from purchasing a decent DA RO Polisher so when I do I will try a couple of different products to work out which I like best for polishing and waxing. I still havnt found anything I'm 100% happy with for interior cleaning but eventually I will. I dont mind going through a bit of trial and error if it means I can stock my car detailing kit with gear that suits me and my cars :)

    Welcome to Gearhead Central @David Scott

    Yeah it is hard to stick to one brand solely.

    What DA are you looking at? It is much nicer then doing everything by hand.
