I am in the same situation.....I might as well run a distribution center for their stuff out of my garage.


I use this stuff from Chemical Guys:

Strange, wonder if they are off for the weekend. It's a relatively small operation from what I understand. Also they're located here in Cali so keep in mind they are on pacific time.

This is the stuff I have.

Based on your recommendation I ordered the light clay bar, lubricant and Carnuba wax/sealant from Chemical Guys. Applied all last evening and am very pleased with the results.

Thanks for the reference.

I thought it was nice to actually see what it looks like as opposed to simply reading it in the manual.
Great find Vtail. It should be very helpful to all that have or plan on getting a sfu.

Be careful, I have half my garage full of their stuff. It's easy to get out of hand, also one of the reasons I love their stuff so much is almost all of their cleaning products are concentrated so you can cut it to your needs.

I've watched a lot of car care videos and done some research on techniques and products. Most of the guys in those videos are obsessed with detailing cars. It is their thing. It isn't mine. It's probably been two months since I even washed my car. I've got too many other things going on to be able to (or want to) spend hours and hours on a regular basis detailing my car. While I think the process of clay bar, sealing, waxing, using a tooth brush to wash the whole car:-), etc are interesting, if I'm honest with myself I just won't make the time to do that. On the other hand after spending more money on this car than my first house, I do want it to look nice. I'm thinking that getting a good first detailing with the processes similar to those mentioned and then just keeping it washed and maybe once or twice a year getting it detailed might be the best thing for me. Which reminds me, other than washing the bugs off my plane every time I fly I've only washed it once in 2.5 yrs and never waxed it. Probably should - might even fly faster....
