Not a detailing item, but does affect cars detail around the car handles. To protect the paint behind the door handle, I put this on 2 weeks ago. This not only protects the paint on darker cars, but looks good on the black, darker greys and possibly red ones.

I got 2 mystery boxes from detailersdomain, mostly for the novelty of it. The only product I find interesting in this group is the Fintech Car Gliss which seems to be similar to reload or cure and the glass cleaning towel that was included.

I got a bit carried away over labor day weekend sales, but my first toy arrived today.



I've been on the fence about getting the CR vs the griots garage di system vs building my own system. Ultimately, CR won because I got a good deal on it.

Got some more stuff in:

2 more griots PFM towels, some sprayers, and a bottle of Hydrosilex (excited to try this)


Carpro Ech2o, Carpro Ceriglass, Carpro Rayon glass pads, Mothers wheel brush, and Griots washing pad. I've been using the Adam's wash pad and wanted to try something new

Update from my previous post:

- Hydrosilex was a good product, but I wouldn't buy it again over Carpro reload.
- Carpro Ceriglass + Carpro Rayon pads - The polish works for very minor scratches in glass and the pads ripped a part after my first use. The velcro stayed on my machine.
- Griots wash pad - it's not as easy to handle as the Adam's wash pad and doesn't create as much foam. It's very similar to washing the car with those old foam T bones that are wrapped in MF (except the t bone is easier to handle).

Newest order is:
Carpro Hydro 2
Carpro Hydrofoam (Haven't tried this before)
Sonax Cut and Finish
Sonax Perfect Finish (When I got my PPF installed, the detailer at the shop said he loved this stuff and recommended I try it)
Kwazar 500mL bottles



Hydro2 is a different color from my last batch

Finally made the much needed upgrade to a 50 ft hose on my pressure washer using the info from Zach's thread https://www.clublexus.com/forums/aut...y-pleased.html

25ft was perfect to leave the pressure washer at the front of the car and go down each side, but now I'll be able to walk all the way around the car.

I introduced my friends to hydro2 and they killed off the last liter I got in less than 2 months. lol

Also ordered some more Carpro flash and gloss pads in 6" to use with my rupes. The 5" pads they have were a little too small and required me to be extra cautious when getting close to mirrors and wings. They also threw in a carpro t-shirt and a Dhydrate towel with my order.
