Hey everyone. I need to know where and what to buy for all around car detailing. I don't have any supplies and I'm looking to just place one order online for all my detailing products. But I don't really know what I need. I've never detailed a car before, so far I clean my wrx by taking it down to one of those do it yourself car washes. Thanks for any help.

Depends how involved you want to be in it.
I am a fan of Klasse products.
I've been happy with Klasse All in One and Klasse Sealant Glaze and then using a carnauba (S100) on top. Of course this is much easier when you have a random orbit polisher.

you crasee men
My list of stuff
1. Meguiars NXT soap
2.Meguiars NXT wax
3. Meguiars Scratch X
4.Meguiars NXT metal polish
5. Meguiars Hot rims
6. Meguairs microfibre towels
7. Meguiars watermagnet towels
8.Eagle One Window cleaner
9. Homemade Windex/water 50/50 soloution
10.Griots Fine hand Polish
11. Griots Window polish
12. Griots Carnuba Wax
13. Griots Vinyl and Rubber dressing
14. Griots Claybar
15. Mr. Clean sprayer w/filter (DON'T use mr.clean soap)
16. Meguiars Plastic Polish
17.Meguiars Placstic Cleaner (#16 and #17 will fix scratches on dvd's too)
18. a dozen or so cloth diapers
20. Meguairs Duster

I think thats it. I get all the meguiars stuff from meguiars.com all the griots stuff from griotsgarage.com and everythingelse from auotozone or target. Sometimes you can find some of the meguiars stuff at autozone type places but usually not. Some of it is probably a little excessive, I spend my money on detailing stuff rather than mods.

I've used just about every product there is, everyone has there own systems and opions but by far the best stuff I have ever used is ARDEX. They make everything you would ever need to professionaly detail a car. Check out the website to see if there is a dealer near you http://www.ardexlabs.com/ I have found that their products are VERY reasonably priced. You cant order it on-line though....If you can find it Give it a try!!
We have tried many products and have found a few that offer good bang for the buck.
Shining Monkey products work very well. Very easy to use and works well on dark colored cars, like the Scooby Red and Black.
A good paint protectant that we use is RejeX. Goes on and comes off easy.
To protect plastic and rubber, nothing is better then 303 Protectant. It offers long lasting protection without the cheesy, slick, gooey shine. It will not harm painted items.
We are almost done testing Lusso products. Lusso is used by Callaway and Beverly Hills Ferrari among other dealers/shops.
It seems to be a VERY high quality wax...It smells awesome and very little is needed to do a car...

go to autogeek.net and link to car care. i use P21S products. i hear that Pinnacle is top of the line also.
Ice by turdle wax is a great product as well, turdle wax has been around for a long time so i trust them the most.
