Car care products

aside from Adams products(ordering soon) what are some other quality products I can get/use till I order my Adams. More specifically at Canadian Tire or some other similar place. My car is arriving shortly(finally) and for reasons I haven't been able to order adams yet and abit nervous using products Im not sure of or never used before.

Mother's has some good stuff. So does Meguiar's. There are tons of great products out there but in my experience none of them stack up to Adam's!

I use some of Adams stuff but I also use Zymol which is really good, I think Turtle Wax and Meguiars are also good. The only problem I have with some of the generic stuff is it doesn't seem to last as long as the really good stuff. I do absoloutely love Turtle Wax spray on wax. It's great when you want to do a quick shine before going to a cruise-in or car show.

Theres tons of great stuff out there... obviously my opinion will be biased so I'll leave the suggestions to the rest of the members. Keep in mind that process is more important than product - the best products in the world won't do you a bit of good if used incorrectly so make sure to refine your process to maximize the results of whatever you choose to use!
