Hey all, so now that I have a nice car I need to get into detailing. I'm looking for advice on which products I should get. I need to find a good shammy to dry the car, and I was also wanting to do a clay bar and wax on all my cars. What im looking for is which products do you all use/recommend for clay bar and wax. I shouldn't have a problem finding a shammy and something nice to wash with

I use the Meguiers clay bar kit with good results. I usually follow up with their wax too

I've heard mainly good things from 2 brands, meguiers and mothers. I think later today i'll go pick up a good wash mit and a shammy. Only reason I don't wash cars at home is because of water spots.

Hi `Keane, I also like the above products & they have always done a super `job...

You can avoid water spots if your Monte is in the shade & cool...You won't have water spots if you don't let the water dry on your Monte..

They also have many great products to remove water spots `if clay bars don't remove them...Good Luck..

*Please take b-4 & after pic's when you get your products & do your detailing....Good Luck

Also search below for past posts/threads on this subject...There's a ton of good infor from member's....

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, Just picked up a wash mit and a 4 sqft. chamois, hopefully no more water spots. I see my loco autozone has Mothers gold clay bar kit and a meguiers one, forget which one it was. I'll probably pick up one or the other, then I just have to find a wax as well. Also, where is miss autozone? I want to complain about all the stuff they tried to get me to get.

WAIT! Make sure it's a microfiber wash mitt. Also when you do wash your car use 2 buckets. You should also look into 2 grit guards, they keep the dirt down.

Instead of a shammy use the California water blade. It works very well.

IMO meguairs is better then mothers. Meguairs also has a professional product line.
