This year my favorite is menzerna 8500 polish and powerlok sealant. I have an Acura and it has hard paint.....very easily damaged. Came home with holograms. This combo on a red hydro pad and YUMMY PAINT.

well, it's simple for me... Adam's full line up.

on my 2005 VW Jetta
--for the full detail.
I start with the wheels
i spray the Adam's All Purpose Cleaner on the tires. then spray the wheels with Deep Wheel Cleaner. scrub and brush the wheels and get them clean.

second step is the body wash.
i'll mix 25/75 APC to Shampoo and wash from the top down. the entire car gets a soapy bath only wetting the area i am about to wash; leaving the washed areas covered in soap. then i'll rinse the entire car only when i am done with the wash.

Then I'll spray Quick Detailer on the wet car and dry it off. the QD adds a thin layer of lubricant between the paint and the towel.

Time to clay bar using Adam's Clay Bar and QD.

After i finish the body paint; I hit all my rubber and black trim with the VRT and get it all protected. If it really brown and "sticky" i'll run APC on the first.. if it doesnt take it all off; rubbing alcohol on a cloth and then rub the rubber. then re-treating it with VRT

Now, depending on the condition of the paint; I'll break out the Flex and hit the car with the stages of machine polishes..

I'll then hit it with the Brilliant glaze, then Americana wax and then seal it with the sealer. and then make everything polished with quick detailer..

Thanks for your business!

Just one tweak to your process. A Sealant will perform the best when it's applied before any other glazes or waxes. This gives it the opportunity to cure and "bond" with your clear coat.

Once it's hit it's allotted cure time, then layer the Brilliant Glaze and Americana over the top if it and prepare for your face to be melted off!!
