    Where do you buy your stuff

    Does anyonelse have a hard time finding places that sell the more complex/exotic detailing stuff? I go to my local kragen and autozone but all they ever seem to have is the basic wax/soap. I'm tired of ordering all my stuff online, I try to plan ahead but I alwayas seem to find one or 2 things I need or run out of and its a pain to have to pay shipping and wait 5 days to get the stuff I need. Is there some kind of detailers supply store that would have the less easy to find stuff.

    yeah I know places I can order from on the internet I was just hoping that someone might know of some chain of stores of type of store which carries the harder to find stuff. For example i was trying to find a plastic polish today and thats something most autozone type stores never seem to have.

    How about auto body specialty shops, and even neighborhood (non-chain) parts stores? The Meguiar’s # 20 I have been using was found at a local non-chain store.

    That might be a good idea you could be on to something.

    yep, i wish there was a shop i could go to that specializes in just detailing, and sells professional grade stuff---in reality i get my stuff from superiorcarcare.net. (on second thought, that might be a bad thing, I would be in that store waaay to much.)

    i occasionally go to pep boys to get over the counter stuff like tire swipes or what have you.

    I get all my junk from autozone. The one nearest to me has all the polish, wax, etc, etc. you need (most of the time). Unless your cool like Redline and order it online.

    yeah the autozone near me is terrible they usually have 1 kind of wax, on kind of soap, and a couple towels and sponges. The rest of the store is filled with riceboy accesories.
