    Did some detailing work over the holiday breaks. First some rock chip repair, wet sand some spots, decontaminated with Iron-X, clay bar, then 3-step polish and applied Avalonking Armor Shield coating. Took about a week to complete, few hours each day.



    (before applying Avalonking)

    Any of you detail brahs interested in a CG buffer? I literally used mine one time. It's still in the box. $90 shipped.

    There are a number of then out there, but Adam's polishes has videos for starters on how to use all of their products. Perfect place for a new comer in my opinion. Plus they have forums to ask questions.

    $100-$150 for towels, wax, shampoo, rubber/plastic maintenance.

    What's your budget? And what kind of car?
    Actually the budget is less. At home, only prepare for foam pot + high-pressure washer, but should prepare special car cleaning liquid. It will gentle cleaning on tough dirt and debris. Safe for wax and sealant.

    So I am no stranger to polishes and waxes. I've been buffing cars since the mid 90's and have used all the popular waxes, polishes, and sealants under the sun (minus ceramics).

    I've always thought that for the money, the Meguiar's Gold Class was the best in terms of price/quality of shine/durability. Others are better at one or the other, but I've been mostly true to Meguiar's the last several years.

    I ventured down the rabbit hole looking for something I hadn't tried before and came across no less than 10 bazillion people online recommending Collinite 845 Insulator Wax and for $20 I figured I would give it a shot.

    I. Am. Blown. Away.

    Pictures never, ever, EVER do it justice and the below is no exception. There hasn't been a ray of sunshine here in Central Ohio in days, and I can't wait until the sun finally come out to take a picture. But yesterday I washed, clay barred, polished with Meguair's Ultimate Polish on DA buffer, and used Collinite 845 sparingly with the DA buffer. I then let it cure inside my garage for an hour. Removal was a breeze, probably the easiest of any wax/sealant I've ever used.

    The depth and richness this soul red crystal metallic paint gives off now is unmatched. I drove it around last night and ran some errands today so it's not 100% clean, but hopefully you get the idea.

    Thanks man. I've only had her 5 months and I've not noticed any abnormal chipping. I read about that problem AFTER I bought it but thankfully (knock on wood) I haven't experienced any such issues. I even bought touch up paint in preparation for it, but have only had to use it once on 2 microscopic chips.

    Thankfully I read a tip online that said to let the bottle sit in hot water before using. Glad I did, because the consistency is almost like petroleum jelly but thicker. After it warmed up it dispensed nicely.

    I HIGHLY recommend getting 1/4 of the front end clear filmed.

    Rock chips on the front end cannot be stopped. And they WILL happen. You cannot dodge these random rocks.

    Do you guys still use standard sealants or the new hybrid stuff? My go to sealant in the past has been Wolfgang Deep Gloss Spritz, but recently I've been using Turtlewax Ice Seal and Shine or Meguiars Hybrid Ceramic wax. Easier to apply than Wolfgang and seems to last longer.
