Detailing Products

What have you got?

I spotted Mike talking about Auto Finesse Iron Out here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=599&p=9070#p9070 and it sounds like something worth trying. Is there anything else that's worth adding to the wash bag?

Was thinking about this last week, do we need a detailing question and answer section?

I do think that there is no right or wrong with some of the products made, some people just get different results with different products.

What would people advise for the black parts of my trim?

I have found the Dodo Juice stuff to be good.
Aldo got one of those G3 clay mitts. Not quite as good as full on clay bar but much simpler and easy to re-use.
Does a pretty damn good job.

My experience.....

Dodo Juice SuperNatural medium cut metal polish is superb and I buy it again and again. It seems to be the best for getting through really bad grime and oxidation. Autosol is also good for general cleaning of metal. I usually use Meguairs NX...something or other...as a final polish and treatment/seal.

AutoGlym Vinyl and Rubber Care is good for keeping door and window seals from drying up and for sprucing up hoses and the likes in the engine bay

AutoGlym Bumper Care is quite good for harder black plastics, but you have to be careful about how you let it dry in

AutoGlym Leather Care Cream is another one I keep buying but again you have to be very careful not to let it dry in and go patchy

Our local supplier, Angelwax, from Renfrew, have some cracking products. I have found their quick detail spray, their H2Go water repellent and their Tungsten pre-wax coating to be excellent. I was especially impressed with how easily the wax went on after the pre-wax coating. The Revenge bug and tar shifter was quite good too.

Poor Boys waterless wash and quick detail spray also seem good.

I'm using Swissvax PTFE Shield wax and I think its good but its the only one I've really used and the tub is lasting for years so I may never have a comparison !!

For black plastic/rubber trim etc I tend to use AutoGlym Bumper Care which works pretty well.

I like the AutoGlym stuff, so might try that then.

Thanks for all the suggestions and my local supplier will advise me on costs, as he's probably reading this thread. :D

have just invested in a wee bottle of the potent liquid "C4" By gtechniq. Used sparingly it has permanently revived the exterior sun faded black trim on the porker. Id recommend it!!

Have just ordered Dodo Juice Ferrous Dueller Iron Remover Spray and Autoglym Pressure Wash Car Snow Foam.

Not sure we needed a detailing section quite yet?

I use Angelwax Corona on black plastic trims and it works awesome. It's a wax which can be used on paintwork aswell as plastic trims a couple sprays per panel works amazing.
