    Griots Garage has awesome Microfiber products that are thick & safe but as with anything quality - $$$. I like Griots products in general.

    I use Wizards products. Their Mystic Spray Wax and 2 of their micro fiber towels and you're good for 4-6 months. It's easy and there's nothing better and all their products work!!

    Most all spray waxes only protect for a few weeks, I'll have to read up on this Mystic Spray Wax. Coatings can last a couple of years, sealants last for about 6 months and waxes usually last for 3-4 weeks.

    Found a new site (at least to me) called Detailed Image. Many different detailers are on the site showing off their work. Many very beneficial ideas and products. One thing I like about the site is the fact that they are not selling one product or another.

    I have been impressed by the many photos taken before and after, The results of the work are outstanding.

    I use Topcoat F11. Used it on 3 vehicles and never had a problem and it makes the paint look like new. Easy on and off.

    GTechniq makes good coatings, if the detailer knows what he's doing you'll be happy with the results. Just know that it doesn't mean no more swirls or scratches, you still have to wash is properly and wouldn't hurt to do maintenance to the coating every 3 to 4 months like a coating topper.

    I usually use Wolfgang Sealant.. Lasts me about 3-4 months in rainy Seattle... but I've used CQuartz DIY on a couple cars and it seems to be holding up nicely.


    Recently found a "spray sealant" called Gyeon Wetcoat; been using that as a quick refresh coat during the winter; works pretty well for a spray on, rinse off.

    It beads nicely:

    Decent shine...
