Nice I Like both those set ups, I'm slowing working on getting more detail supplies. I need a bigger house, actually my wife and I are looking around. She gets a bigger kitchen and I get a large garage.

Yes, it's looking pitifully low. Also, I was wondering if you have a favorite brand, or do you like to mix and match?

I do like to mix and match contrary to my pictures lol But in a nutshell i use

Eagle one- AtoZ tire cleaner - mostly on my DD's And it works very well, foams like crazy and thoroughly cleans the tires and Trim

also their Alluminium wheel cleaner, i know my rims are just like the paint (clear coat wise) but it too does a great job but would be open to something else that makes it shiny-er?

For the interior of my DD's i use Lexol cleaner and conditioner and i like it alot. Used it at the detailing shop i use to work at.

Have to say im not 100% satisfied with Adams car shampoo....but im thinking my water might be too hard or whatever because it doesnt keep enough suds

So i use Surf City Wash n Shine soap with great results

I know these are OTC products but imo they are far superior than armor all lol

But neverteless the armor all wheel protectant is quite good....use it on my dad's Zo6 rims and it keeps them looking cleaner longer even after it rains....


Im definitely open to suggestions Which i wanted to ask, is their a sealant i could use where i dont have to wait a long period of time to cure?

For instance, i only have sunday to fully detail my dads vette and would like to put a sealant down but adams super sealant bc of my time contraints wont cure in time.

Nice set up!! For some reason, I figured your detailing arsenal to be much larger. My wife picked these used cabinets up for $75.

Nice setup dude!

I got rid of everything I don't use on a daily basis. I see no point in keeping around a bunch of stuff collecting dust. I try stuff and if it doesn't make the cut I give it to friends or family or sell it. And I stopped buying most things in bulk because I'm too ADD to stick with stuff for long. I could take this picture again in a year and it would look totally different, I'm sure. I also just finished moving across country so there was some serious spring cleaning done. It was a good time to be my friend in Dallas a month ago Camaros don't haul a whole lot
