Tried new quick detailer

I'm always up for trying different detail products. Lately I've been impressed with products made by Eagle One, specifically their All Wheel & Tire Cleaner and now their Wipe & Shine. Between the Turtle Wax Ice and the Eagle One Wipe & Shine, I think the Eagle One product is way better. Goes on much thinner and wipes off effortlessly. I included a photo of my wife's black Mercedes. The picture, which is from my I-Phone, does not do it justice. The paint on the Mercedes and my truck is like a mirror.

I personal like the Ice products from Turtle Wax. This spring I got into spray waxing my truck. I tryed Turtle Wax 1-Step Wax & Dry & the truck shined like new. & on my last wash I used Turtle Wax Ice Liquid Polish & it made my truck shine alot better.

Yeah that product works really well. Who has time for paste waxes. The new quick detailers and clay bars give great results

I picked up some Mother's Clay Bar with Detailer. I couldn't believe all the crap that was removed from the paint. Takes time, but I put on some wax on the parts I did and it's super smooth and slippery.

About 3-4 years late doing this.

Just clayed, and used a Porter Cable polisher with a product that is a polish with a sealer in it. It took all the little fine scratches out and made my truck look like a mirror. Suckers almost paid for.......gotta make it last.

Claying really cleaned it up, but there is still some marks here and there. My truck has lived outside since new.

I'll probably just have a detailer do it right so I don't screw it up.
