Default Surf City Products: Is my ride really worth it?

I've seen this stuff at Wal-Mart and having a really hard time finding reviews. Anyone ever used this stuff? It's like twice as expensive as comparable Mothers and Meguiars products..... like $20 for theri paste wax, like $9 for their interior detailing stuff, and about $35 for the stuff posted here... anyone ever used it?




If you get what you pay for, this stuff should make your car out glisten the sun.

I'm wondering the same.. I believe Amy has used various surf city products with great results?

I've always been loyal to Meguiar's Products

    Has anyone actually used any of these products? I bought some beyond clay this weekend, with the intention of using it on my '02 Z28.

I have used their tire dressing and love it. I have used their leather conditioner and loved it. I have also tried their liquid wax and I like it just as much as NXT 2.0 if not better. I used it on the Monte a couple of weeks ago but the paint was already in really good condition so it's hard to tell LOL. I want to try it on the Stang when it comes time to wax it.

I have used it and it is pretty good, I use the Beyond Clay with a Porter Cable to get the paint completely clean & smooth. After that I use the Adam's Polishes products to correct any swirls/haze, finish with polish,glaze, and wax. The combination will get you a perfect shine that lasts.

I also like the Dash Away Interior Cleaner, nice clean greaseless finish.

It is worth the investment to go with a Porter Cable or Flex polisher if you want perfection without spending the whole day on your car, more time to drive

I just finished the detailing and didn't really have tim to get good pictures. I'm re painting part of my Torino, and my Monte Carl ois a bit too fresh, but here is my dads Fairlane after putting that NanoSeal wax and then Barrier Reef paste wax on it. Still, not even a good picture, but you can get the idea.
