    Pretty much all the junk I use is on Redline's list... I plan on hitting Zaino come springtime. Do you have any favorite stores and/or websites you get your stuff from, Tyler?

    Yeah griots is my favorite. The company is really cool too they seem like they actually care about your car. The stuff always ships fast, they have people to answer your questions, its a little expensive but well worth it IMO.

    No never used it. It kind of scares me. I don't know.

    I think its better for someone who doesn't have time/doesn't want to detail alot or wax it alot.

    maybe for someone who goes to school out of state while their car sits home? (granted, its in the garage)

    I really need to look more into sealents. I know they are usually for people like you described. I wonder if it could help protect in the nasty winter months.

    Well if its garaged and covered it probably doesn't matter a whole lot thats its not being waxed frequently. Unless your garages is excessively damp or full of contaminants.

    Since I've started commuting to school on the train I've really cut down on my waxing/washing since the car sits in the garage more often than not.
