Default Washing/Detailing

Figured we could get something going to share some tips and secrets of the detailing trait. Any knowledge and positive input is welcome! If there is already a thread like this, I apologize.

Yeah the cleaner isn't a good choice. The conditioner may be fine.

I get all my stuff from chemicalguys.com and would recommend them to anyone.

Not exactly detailing or washing, but runs along the same lines with maintaining the interior. Where do I find custom fit sunshades for the windows? I remember something a long time ago about custom made shades that fit out windows perfect.

I just recently, in the past year or so, quit buying stuff from autozone. Chemical guys was just who I chose, Colinite is on my list to try. But I bought a thing of wax from CG(xxx hardcore carnuaba), kinda one of their cheaper ones but holy crap does it help water bead up and off so much more than ANYTHING I've ever tried before. Everything else I've gotten from them has been good too, but the difference in the wax is just absurd.

I use Meguiar's Wash and Wax on the truck and use Pledge on my interior. Vinegar and water on the glass. I prefer the tire foam but wipe it in with an old t-shirt so it doesn't spray on the side of the truck.

Where yall finding the best deal on the dura gloss 221?
Used the KR brand for several months, it was pretty good but never ordered more.
Grabbed some Mcguires Gold Class rich leather.
I like it more then the KR brand, seems like it made leather softer and darker which I like but still room for improvement.

As for exterior I'm ashamed to say I have not even waxed it since I got it.
That accident and dent the first mo m the I had it did not help my motivation lol.
But I wash it a lot.
Either at car wash (unlimited) usually three times a week
or a hot bath at work.

If you haven't waxed it, and run it through an automatic wash 3 times a week, I bet your paint is swirled to death and hates you. Those things are absolutely terrible for your paint, even the touchless ones.

Default Washing/Detailing

Here's a pic for inspiration. This is the truck in my avatar pic. I got the truck used and the previous owner was a fan of the brush washes. It's been a toooooooon of work to get it like this.

My boss uses a leather conditioner on his platinum called ohyeayeah or something from Amazon and it's amazing. Used it on my harley truck seats and smells and feels good and clean. Black wax for the win tho...

Believe it or not, I did that with a $45 DA from harbor freight. I read a few good reviews from pros using it as a backup on auto geek so I went for it about a year or so ago. Kinda intended on it being a starter one just to get the feel if I wanted to do it on my own.

Aside from the obvious build quality, like the handle threads only working on one side or the piece on the back not wanting to stay on it's really not bad. Some guys on auto geek said the motor is actually more powerful than the porter cable everyone uses.

The one downside is its balanced horribly. And by the end of a session you're beat. I went and read a little more on auto geek and turns out that's the backing plate and everyone says to replace it and it's much better.

Bickmore 4 Leather Conditioner. Hands down the best you will ever use on leather. We've owned a boots, leather, and saddle shop since 1867 and it's the only product we sell or recommend. I use it on my KR Leather and it's awesome.

Yep. This is the one http://www.harborfreight.com/6-in-va...her-69924.html

One thing I will also warn you of, is the harbor freight pads are decent, but by the time I finished one pass around the truck with those, they were coming apart and shooting foam everywhere. I bought some hex logic pads from chemical guys, and those did way better.

I have the porter cable 7424xp I believe. Things a beast. Not worried about the power of the motor considering I never use it on full power.

I wasn't saying the harbor freight is necessarily better, just trying to demonstrate that it's not really as big of a piece of **** as you'd expect from them. I think its a good starter or even good for once a year or so. I've actually been researching getting one of the nicer ones, mainly so I don't hate using it as much.

I hear ya man. That's good news though maybe I can get some friends to buy the harbor freight one and quit borrowing mine. What products would you recommend for maybe a 2 step process to remove light/medium swirls and have a good bling factor?

I really like the chemical guys V series polishes. V34,36,38,38. 34 is the most aggressive and 38 is the lightest. The only others I've used were the Meguiars that comes in the tan bottles, but I can't remember the names now.

The V36 works really well for a one step, and that's what I did a couple weeks ago with great results. I would just try that on your truck first, to see what you can get it to do without taking too much of your clear off. If you need more the 34 would be plenty.

Don't overlook the pad you are using either. I used the orange hex logic pad with that, but I've seen where people with more swirls use the green one, which is the heavy polishing pad, but not quite a cutting pad.

You're welcome man. I'm sure you could have good results out of the Griots stuff, I know that's what my bro in law uses, and he wont' use anything else. Plus I recently saw their stuff at Autozone so that sure makes things easy.

The main thing with polishing I've found is to really take your time. Let the machine do it's job and don't be scared to bump up the speed. I run mine wide open after I get the product spread, and move pretty slow.

Yeah I love that color too. I haven't ever really gotten into nice wax and polishing and all until this truck, but now that I am I can't wait to get a deep metallic color and see what I can do for the depth with the right products.

Perfect you can practice on mine. When I get mine back I'll hit it with an Orange pad and some of that chem guys polish and update in here. I'll never use another wal Mart product again after working with some of this other stuff.

I don't really know, I've never really had that problem. I'd try a clay bar to see if the stain is on top of the clear, if it was then that would probably work. If not, a light polishing compound would take the top of the clear off and hopefully the black stain as well.

After you get it off wax the **** out of that area to try to keep it off.

Fixed.

If a wax won't do it I'd just bump up to a light polish. I would think something as simple as a good wash would get it off.

Great choices. The v7 is the ****, I actually buy it by the gallon now. Same with the mr pink. That's my go to soap. Obviously haven't used the white wax though I'm sure it's great also.

Also, I don't know if you found them, but they've also got a ton of how to videos on YouTube. That's actually where I learned how to polish.

Oh, and welcome to the addiction/obsession.

Aside from the obvious build quality, like the handle threads only working on one side or the piece on the back not wanting to stay on it's really not bad. Some guys on auto geek said the motor is actually more powerful than the porter cable everyone uses.

The one downside is its balanced horribly. And by the end of a session you're beat. I went and read a little more on auto geek and turns out that's the backing plate and everyone says to replace it and it's much better.
I had that one once. It broke with in 5 minutes of turning it on they didn't believe that it wouldn't run at first when I took it back.

My personal detailing regiment is as follows:

Wash: CG Mr. Pink (CWS_402) just with a good old bucket and CG mit (MIC_491) and don't dry it.

Clay Bar: CG Yellow OG bar with Luber. Comes in a pair (CLY_113). Clay bar the entire truck then wash it off again real quick.

Polish: CG Pro Polish 3n (GAP_108_16) its a very light polish with minimal cutting. I use it paired with a Porter Cable with the CG White Hex Pad (BUFX_104HEX6). Just go over the entire truck very lightly. Wipe down with a micro fiber cloth.

Sealant: CG Jet Seal (WAC_118_16) applied with CG micro fiber applicator (MIC_292_01) just apply a thin coat over the entire truck let it sit for 20 mins apply a second thin coat let it sit and wipe down with a clean microfiber cloth.

Wax: CG XXX Hardcore Carnuba (WAC_301) apply by hand with an applicator in thin coats and as many coats as you want. Wipe off.

^^^ Process above I do once or twice a year. and in between washes I use the CG Hybrid V7 Optical Select (WAC_808_16) which has some carnuba in it for a quick shine after a normal summer wash.

I don't have any pictures on my current phone of it right after the full process.

Pics below are after about 2 months after the full detail just after a quick wash and dry.

Just find the chemical guys page on YouTube and start watching. They're all good demonstrations with good explanations.

Have you seen the new torq DA that chemical guys just put up on their site this week? It looks really nice. Even has a digital display and when you switch it on it doesn't go all out no matter what. You just press the button and it slowly gains speed. Can't tell you how many times I forget I'm still on a high speed after I've moved to a new panel and have the product on the pad, and it slings all over the garage.

And whitemamba, have you seen the clay mitt? It accomplishes the same thing as the clay bar, but soooooo much faster. With my foam cannon I can coat the whole truck and clay it with the mitt in under 5 minutes, literally.

I've slung polish all over myself more times than I can count. Got it in my beer once, **** tasted rough.

Yeah I was reading about it on the email they sent out. Looks awesome. Maybe Christmas present hints need to be used for that

Finally had the chance to give some of my Chemical Guys products. Gave the truck a quick bath with their RU waterless wash. Pleasantly surprised with the results! But I did use the entire bottle....

Cool man, I've had some of the Ecosmart waterless wash stuff for a little while now, but I haven't worked up the nerve to do it yet. I'm so scared that I'll grab a piece of dirt that's too big and swirl the paint that I've worked so hard to de-swirl.

Did it feel pretty slick like you weren't actually rubbing the dirt? I'm curious if the whole "tech" of the stuff encapsulating the dirt is really real...

When it's cold something that helps a LOT is insulated dishwashing gloves, and fill that bucket with hot sink water. Makes the process a lot more tolerable.

It's typically warmer down your way than it is here

You guys are really giving me the itch.....

So I know TripleE44 said the automatic car wash was most likely killing my paint. I decided to try and get some pictures of swirls or what not But I do not see all that many and the pictures don't show much, but take a look anyway.
Think I might be doing ok with the paint condition.
This is the day after the auto wash.
Couple questions, on what I should get...

Soap? I believe its a go with the MR. Pink and figure just get the gallon and don't look back.

Foam cannon, Looking for the cheap cheap without paying near $100 for it, seems like its something I can get at like harbor freight, or is it really that special of a part. Seems pretty basic to me.

Polish is where I am lost, does not seem like it needs much cutting from what I can tell, hopefully y'all can can point me in right direction.

Sealant: Jet seal seems like its the way to go.

Wax: well that's the same as the polish, what do you think?

O, and clay bar, is the bar a lot better then the glove type?
The glove type seems nice and easy which I like ( at least for my first go around) but I do not want to get cheesy results because I took the easy route.

Lastly how do you guys remove white road paint?

Thanks fellas.

I've never used the Chemical Guys mitt. I'll have to give it a shot.

I really wish I could find some good tips on polishing black... I'm terrified to do mine lol. I've had it done a few times, but I always feel like I could do a better job if I knew what I was looking for.

I know I clay bar and wax it better than 90% of guys around...

Menzerna FG400 followed by SF4500. I use a MF pad on my DA polisher for compound and a foam pad for the polishing step.

With those pics, you wouldn't be able to see the swirls. Try holding a flashlight close to the paint, or on a sunny day a couple hours before or after 12noon you'd be able to see them. If you're running it through a brush wash, I promise you've got some.

Mr pink is a good choice for an all around soap. That's what I buy by the gallon.

The foam cannon, I thought the same thing. I tried to find a cheaper alternative but came up empty. You really want the one that hooks to a pressure washer. The alternative is the foam gun that attaches to a regular hose, it's a little less but puts out less foam also.

Polish, The chemical guys v series is just easy. Goes v32,34,36 and 38. 32 is aggressive and 38 is light. I can't imagine you'd need 32 unless your paint was oxidized. 36 would probably do you fine. They do sell a kit that comes with all 4 in small bottles that should be enough to do the truck.

I haven't tried jet seal, but I have no doubt that's a good choice. I've been using a bottle of the blitz spray and it does well from what I can tell. And it's quicker to apply being a spray.

Wax, I prefer a paste. I just think it lasts better overall. I use the xxx hardcore from CG. It's not their nicest but I've been really really happy with it.

Clay mitt. Get the damn clay mitt. It works just as good and soooooo much faster. The clay bar is so small it takes too long. The mitt is way better. One issue though is when I used it with the luber no matter how much I put on it marred the paint a little. It polished right off but if I wasn't planning on polishing after I'd have been pissed.

Hopefully someone else can help you on that white paint. I haven't had the fortune of dealing with anything like that.

For KR leather, Leather CPR is hands down my top pick. It really does work wonders on those seats. Just ordered a Foam Cannon from CG, cant wait to try it out.

Yessir, they sell the ones that connect to a regular hose, but the one for 65 connects to a pressure washer. Its the same MTM cannon that you buy from Chemical Guys. Ive heard nothing negative about CG, I cannot wait to start using their products!

Dragging a pressure washer out to wash a truck sounds annoying.

Haha. I have done all sides so not much hate towards any rate from me.
But I do prefer a presure washer over hose any day.

To get this kind of foam just sprayed onto the truck, it's worth it.

I don't really see why not. You might have to use a little more soap to get the thick foam like that though. I'd try to search YouTube or somethin and see if you can find someone doing that.

I've seen it done with an electric Ryobi on YouTube, it seemed to do a decent enough job.

Did it feel pretty slick like you weren't actually rubbing the dirt? I'm curious if the whole "tech" of the stuff encapsulating the dirt is really real...
Yea it felt pretty smooth. The only part that was a little iffy was the bottom of the front doors and behind the rear tires, but that was kind of to be expected

So what products would be a good to start my detail kit? I mostly just use Armor All products but I would like something better. From what I read in the thread CG products are a good choice. Mr. Pink looks to be the choice of soap.

My swirl free method with paint correction:

Wash with Mr. Pink (CG) 2 bucket method
Dry with microfiber towels
Clay entire truck
Re wash
Dry
Polish with Porter Cable D/A and Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover 3.0 (Orange pad) Speed 5
Polish with Wolfgang Finish Polish and Red Pad
Seal with Jet Seal (CG)
Top with Collinite 845
Final wipedown with V7

No joke takes about 10 hrs to do it properly but you truck will look better than off the showroom floor.



Polishing Notice 0 swirls

I'm building a list to order from chemical guys as well. I'm stuck on what wax to get though. I looked at their LAVA wax and some of the reviews weren't so great... What are ya'll using? I'd like to stay chemical guys as well. Looks like the XXX Hardcore Carnauba wax is my next option?

Side note, anyone see that Project J97 wax they have?... That is just freaking ridiculous. Idc what it does for your paint, 850 bucks for 8oz is out of this world lol

I have a jar of there XXX wax, it does a OK job but it is a pain to remove, Ive tried waxes from 10 bucks to 150 and IMO you cannot beat Collinite 845. If you stay CG get Petes 53'

The XXX is really a pretty good wax. I'm really impressed with it over the autozone type stuff. But Strokinduty is right. It's a pain to get off. After a few hours polishing, then to have to struggle with just removing the wax is pretty frustrating. It's not THAT bad if you are just washing and then waxing though.

I've been wanting to try Lava for a while now. I'm just waiting on it to go on sale. I generally prefer the paste type wax, but I have friends that love that butter wet wax that they have also so that could be another option.

10-4, now that I think about it I may just give the LAVA a shot anyway since it's a soft wax and I can use it on a machine instead of by hand. Think that Petes '53 will probably be my next choice though for a paste wax. Thanks.

What do ya'll do about cleaning/polishing/waxing the wheels the wheels?

Treat it like paint, that way you wont cause damage to the coating.Use the least aggressive products and then work your way up if it doesnt cut it. Clay bars work wonders on wheels and pick out embedded brake dust. You will want to seal the wheels rather than wax IMO, you want that long lasting protection on wheels because they take a beating. The best wax on the market wouldn't last a month on these trucks, ive never seen a vehicle generate so much brake dust

Awesome, you answered all my questions. Was wondering about using the clay bar on them. I'll probably wash, then clay bar, then use jet seal. Thanks for your help!

No problem man, Jet Seal is a great all around sealant for paint, chrome, and even glass. I wouldnt say it lasts 12 months like they say it does, Id give it 4-6 months based on one's driving conditions but needless to say still a great product. One thing I do is lay down one coat of sealant, wait 45 min to a hr then wait a full day, quick detail the paint and then lay down the second coat of sealant. Then top with 2 coats of your favorite wax. Layering is the best way to up the protection and longevity.

I am a big fan of poor boys world products I like how easy they are to take off and they do a great job.


I use a flex DA polisher and quite a few different brands of products but like I said the PB stuff works well for me I need to give some other stuff a try though too

The cg products look good, I just can't stand the guy that does all the talking. His voice is annoying.
Ammonyc uses some good stuff.

I've used Chemical Guys, Meguiar's Professional, P21S, PoorBoy's, Sonax, CarPro, C.A.R., 3D, HD, Collinite, Duragloss, GTechniq, Menzerna, Optimum, Shine Supply, various PBMG brands (Pinnacle, Blackfire Wolfgang, etc), XMT, Griot's, Wolfs Chemicals, Ultima, and the list goes on. My favorite brands are CarPro and Shine Supply. Both of those companies put out products that are significantly better than the competition, with fair pricing, and awesome customer service. Corey (CarPro) and Jeremy (Shine Supply) are both great to deal with. I haven't been a huge Chemical Guys fan. Their products are extremely hyped up, however, most of them are just average quality with high quality price tags. I do like the Hybrid V07, but it is to only be used on a vehicle with no LSP (last step protection), or a chemically resistant sealant or coating. It contains alcohol in the formula, in order to flash more quickly and reduce streaking, but will also degrade your sealant or wax.

I am planning on building a detailing post (with pictures) oriented specifically to cleaning our trucks. Detailing my truck every week has allowed me to try a lot of different products and methods, and figure out how to most efficiently detail this big 'ole hunk of metal.

As far as polishing goes, the Griot's 6" polisher is the best bang for your buck. The HF polisher is a great deal, as well, but a pair of Mechanix gloves will be needed as well. It will rattle your teeth out. I'm currently using a combination of the Rupes 21, Rupes Mini, and the Griot's 6".

If you have any specific questions about products, methods, etc.; I'll be glad to help.

Do any of you know what to do to a factory exhaust? The tip just looks really bad... any suggestions would be great.

If you guys haven't looked into rinseless washing, I'd highly recommend it. I just washed my entire truck using 15 microfibers, 6 ounces of Shine Supply EcoShine, and 4 gallons of water. I utilized the Garry Dean Method (hybrid waterless-rinseless wash), and it took me only 45 minutes to completely wash my entire truck; less than half the time it normally takes me. The kicker: if done properly, this method is safer than a traditional soap and two bucket wash method. I'm incredibly impressed, and the shine is impeccable. This is my truck two days and 200 miles later. Even with tons of swirls, the built-in glossifiers really helped.

15 microfibers!? I just don't get it. I'll stick to the good old two bucket method.

This will explain. It eliminates ANY dirt from being reapplied to the paint. Rinseless wash solution is also much slicker than soap, and actually encapsulates the dirt, instead of just sliding it around.

I use that on small cars, but use optimum no rinse ( first product to come as a rinse less). On my truck(it's usually pretty dirty) I use the two bucket method.

I've tried both, and EcoShine is a bit slicker, in my experiences. However, I still have a gallon of ONR to use. It's a great product for sure. Yvan Lacroix got me started on it... He's been running a high volume detailing business for 20+ years, and hasn't touched soap since ONR was released.

For some reason, the rinse less just scares me. No matter how many videos I watch of people doing it on expensive cars, I still just am not comfortable with it. I get the whole use a different side of the towel and all but I just can't bring myself to do it unless my trucks just a little dusty.

Maybe after you correct your truck and get a few months of these washes you could hit it with a light and show if it actually damaged anything. I'm sure with the amount of products out I'm being over paranoid, but it's just hard for me to believe.

Exactly. I just use two buckets with grit guards in them.

I just have an average $300 honda gas powered pressure washer from home depot and it's plenty. There are people that even use the electric ones with no issues.

For foam cannon, if you wanna order today, this one is on sale and is about as good of a deal as I've seen. After you put it in the cart it takes and additional $20 off. Might double check amazon to see if its cheaper there though.

His signature products are his compounds and polishes. They are pretty much unmatched. Cloud 9, Wet Detailer, Solution, Hyper Shine, Cool Guy/Wise Guy are also some of my favorite products. He also has some green microfibers that I have fallen in love with; and pretty cheap at $30 for a dozen.

Gotcha. Is flat top going to be overkill? Would classic cut and classic polish be sufficient? What do you plan to use when you correct yours? I guess that would be a good question to ask.

Like I said on IG I've got some scratches that are only in the clear on my rocker that I haven't been able to get with Chemical guys V36 or the Megs things that I had.

I told my wife I wanted a new polisher for my birthday, so the Torq is sitting on my dining room table wrapped up calling my name. Just trying to get my ducks in a row. Also ordered some CQuartz cause you inspired me.

Once you use that Torq could you do a little review? I've had my eye on it but want to see a few reviews about it first. I've got a little time since it's still too cold to wash outside here

what PSI is safe to power wash a vehicle?
I'm obviously not going to get super close and hold it but I'd like to know

Flat Top is worth it, especially with the hard clear coat on these Fords. I will be using Flat Top with my Rupes 21 and Mini with the Meguiar's Microfiber Cutting Discs, and then Classic Polish with the Rupes Foam Polishing Pad.

I would get the Restoration Kit. It's a great deal.

I'm still debating throwing down some Cruz Night, and layering some Daddy-O, Signature Shine, and then Wet Detailer; instead of a coating. I have some GTechniq C1+EXOv2 sitting here, but I'm not sure what I'll end up doing. So many choices.

Ok. I'll probably grab the restoration kit, I was kinda leaning towards that. Just wasn't sure if it was going to be overkill.

I was torn between telling her the Rupes 21 or the Torq. I actually found where the guy that does the details on Gas Monkey Garage said that he doesn't use his Rupes anymore, and prefers the torq. Well that and the price obviously. I'm just stoked to not have to use my harbor freight one anymore.

I'm the same way on the coating or layering stuff like I usually do. I feel like I'm not going to be able to leave it alone just putting the one thing on and calling it good.

Donnie Anderson? Lol he's a HUGE Shine Supply guy. I like the longer throw, but different strokes for different folks!

I love my rupes 21. Came from the Griots DA. It's pricy but I love it. Will probably be getting a flex 3401 next. Forced rotation is nice.

Stepping down to a 5.5in pad will make correction a ton easier with That porter cable. if you'd like to try a one step compound/polish look up Menzerna FG400. Amazing stuff, finishes like a polish on most paint, and removes all but the toughest scratches.

I'll give it a shot. I stepped up my pad to help with correction. Using an orange with a light polish.

For correction, i went to microfiber pads. Will never go back to a foam for correction. only place I use foam is for a finish polish or wax.

Just booked my trip to TS this year.... Took the whole week off before hand. This truck is going to be undergoing a MAJOR detail before then. I'd love to take home a trophy from the Show N Shine.

What was the big difference you noticed between them?

Just noticed the other day that there were microfiber pads out.

Microfibers cut harder, but foam finishes down better.

He actually has posted this on Instagram a few times I've never actually seen him say it on the show, and every pic he's posting is him using that even if it doesn't point it out.

I do agree they could be paying him though. As long as it's better than my harbor freight one, I'll be happy.

I guess I'll find out when I get to open it on my birthday.

Corrects so much faster, doesn't need as much product. And lasts longer for me. I can get away with using a MF pad with FG400 and go straight to a wax and skip a polish all together, and that's on black!

Harbor freight sells a dual action polisher for under 50bucks. Pick one up. I'd never attempt to remove swirls by hand on these big trucks.

I can get a MF pad to finish down pretty darn good.

Foam will always finish down better, quicker, from my experiences.

It corrects faster, you can also put more force it it keeps spinning, unlike the PC.

It is also much quieter, and won't kill your hands with the vibration like the PC.

An upgrade from the Griots is the Rupes. This thing is quiet and no vibrations. the Griots was even too loud for me. (To be honest though, I loved the griots, would still be using it if I didn't drop it from the hight of our roofs on our trucks...)

I've been thinking about buy a torq. I have lite swirl marks I want gone. I'm just scared to cause Ive never done any buffing or polishing before. How hard is it? How easy is it to mess up your paint?

I just tried Griots Garage interior cleaner and love it. It seems to help reduce the static that makes dog hair etc cling to the plastic.
