    I use Meguiar's Gold Class to wash with and then use Meguiar's Quik Detailer spray. Makes the black paint look great!

    Re: What are you guys using to detail your cars?

    Every 3-4 months I start by using a Clay Bar.

    For detailing I use PC 7424XP with Meguiars M105(When needed) and M205 followed by Meguiars M21 and finally M26 wax (overkill but I do it anyway). The pads I use are Lake Country.

    I have never used Zaino but have detail friends that swear by it.

    I forgot that I use Meguiars M7 between the M205 and the M21 Sealant.

    Re: What are you guys using to detail your cars?

    Zaino products are excellent, however there are plenty of other options that are just as good. Basically, there are a billion great choices and everyone is going to tell you that what they use is the best.

    autogeek really is the.premier internet resource for detailing supplies. They carry everything anyone would need across almost all price ranges.

    Here is what i use, and I can say that it gives me a perfect finish every time, however I'm not going to try to tell you that its the best.

    - meguiars clay bar
    - pinnacle xmt swirl remover #2 (applied with pc7424xp)
    - pinnacle xmt carnauba glaze (applied by hand)
    - zymol carbon (applied by hand)
