I just met Phil today, and bought a few items(adam) from him. He is an honest dude, and he doesn't force you to buy more than what you need at that moment. He mainly just offers his suggestion. Thxs again Phil !!

Phil's an awesome guy! Phil, how far are you from NYC? I'm going back to NYC again this summer and I'm going to visit a friend in NJ that lives about an hour and a half from NYC.

have you already polished out the car so there are no imperfections.

if so I would consider using something like 1z einszett Glanz Wax

If you want something nice from DDs, look into Lusso Oro. It is a very underrated wax. It will give more depth compared to 1Z, but it won't last as long since 1Z is a polymer based sealant.

NANOSKIN Autoscrub 6 inch Pad - Better and Faster than Claying



Wow is all I can say about this new tool and new technology. I believe this will change the way most pro detailers and DIYers will prep their cars. This is truly a time saver and will pay for itself after a couple detail jobs. We have spent in some cases 1-2 hours claying and prepping a midsize sedan (in rough shape) we recently tested the AutoScrub on an Audi S8 and we were finished in about 15 minutes! You really won't believe this until you try it yourself. The AutoScrub will make you leave your clay bar behind.

NANOSKIN AutoScrub works fast and achieves professional results with the new advanced rubber polymer technology, which replaces the use of clay bars.

A dual action orbital polisher is required. AutoScrub will safely and easily removes paint over spray, water spots, tree sap, rail dust and other bonded surface contaminants from the surface of automotive paint, glass, moldings and plastic.

AutoScrub works great with your favorite detail spray or clay lubricant. Unlike the clay bar, the AutoScrub can be cleaned by simply rinsing off the accumulated contaminates with water. If you drop the AutoScrub on the ground, no worries, just rinse the sponge pad clean and you're ready to keep using it.

AutoScrub allows for sturdy and controlled handling, unlike clay bars where constant reshaping is required.

Features
- Lasts up to 4 times longer than clay bars
- Glides on & off easily for a slick finish
- If inadvertently dropped on shop floor, simply rinse clean
- Up to 50-60 uses before you need to replace it

Directions
1. Thoroughly wash vehicle free of dust, sand, and dirt.
2. Mist sufficient detail spray or clay lubricant onto the surface evenly.
3. Polish the surface with dual action orbital polisher using light pressure (Low Speed).
4. Wipe off residue and move on to compound and polishing or even go straight to your last step.

Important tips:
- Sufficient lubrication is crucial to the AUTOSCRUB application.
- DO NOT use water
- DO NOT use with rotary polisher.

Take a look at the 3 offers we have. Pre Order Pricing is in effect, we should have the first wave by Friday.

I asked this qustion on another thread, but I don't think it is going to get answered.

If my car needs to be claybared, but I don't have the time, can I put a coat of wax on (Adams buttery) without damaging the paint. I understand the purpose of wax is to protect the paint, and hat is why I why I don't want to apply it if it will be damaging.

Is the Sonax full effect wheel cleaner safe on chrome?and I assume from the above photo that you can apply to a cool dry dirty wheel or does it matter if you pre-wash.Thanks

I was wondering, is it ok to just clay bar and not follow up with polishing and wax? I'm waiting on my pc 7424 or should I just wait until it arrives to do the full detailing?

I would just wait till you get everything in.

if not at the least wax after claying you want to have some protection on the paint.
