Best Detailing Product To Keep Your Camaro Like New


I have tried every thing in the world, even mixed stuff to get a better product.

The best I have found is not a "wet look" it is a "new look". This product in a water based, silicone dressing that makes all plastics and rubber look like new. It will not rub off, run off or sling off. After water evaporates product is dry and slick. It can also be used on about anything else, except glass and cloth. It brings out the New natural look.

Auto Magic
Reconditioning Professional's # 1 Choice
Premium- ALL Purpose Water Based Dressing
Super Dress-It #65
1 gallon is about $30, can be diluted. I start at 50/50 for real dirty stuff, then maintain at 25/75. last for weeks.
My last gallon lasted 3 years, on 3 cars.

I am not a salesman. this the greatest detail product to keep your car new.
I am lazy and this is the product for me.

I will supply more details (pictures) if there is an interest in this product.

I had a Carwash for a few years and we used Auto Magic. AM is on the higher end for sure, HOWEVER, its NOT Zanio!!

You want the best, use Zanio

There are alot of good products available, which do amazing things, (I know as I've tried alot of them) but IMO, for durability, nothing beats Zaino.

Thank you for posting about 'Auto Magic' though. It never hurts to find out about the different products and give them a look.

Tropi-Care (www.tropi-care.com) or Zaino (www.zainostore.com) recommended, I use a mix of these with Meguiars(www.meguiars.com) products personally.

Wanna really learn about detailing? Go to the master forum for learning/comparison ---> www.autotopia.com

Tropi-Care has an Austin, TX dealer that frequents car shows in the area. I suggest a moderator give them a shout to see if they can make a meet to detail a members car to show the results. I have seen it done with the Fbody, Vette, and Viper forum groups in our area...why not the Camaro5.com crew!

Here's my take on a great sleeper product: First one is Blackfire line ( www.properautocare.com) a sleeper product that some folks have been discovering. www.TruthinDetailing.com is another forum that has top detailers from the country and other folks willing to help out anyone in their detailing questions.

Best is definitely subjective. Although the product obviously needs to exceed a certain degree of quality, everyone has different tastes (and sometimes patience) and a result, use vastly different products. Its a matter of trying a few items and finding what you like best. Even if you think you like one thing, you never know whats out there that can surprise you

Never say never.
Have not tried Zaino. I will surely check it out.
My 4 year old Chevy SSR looks like new with Auto Magic, if it could look better I would not complain.
Do not want the new Camaro to age at all!
My cars are driven, but never put away dirty.
Always looking for a better way.
Thanks for the input.

See Ya' on the Highway!
