Jon:
The real issue is availability of quality car care detail products available at commercial establishments. The selection is very limited to none. I will say that AG stands behind the products they sell and the customer service is first class.

I like you try to avoid shipping and handling fees as well a sales tax.

I washed, clayed, polished, and waxed today.

When claying the roof, I noticed one side was rough and didn't feel right. When polishing, it was like the stuff was sticking like glue. I could barely get it off, and it didn't smooth anything out. I've waxed over everything to protect it for the time being.

But what do I need to do? I'm assuming that this will require a buffer to get whatever is up there off? (I did everything by hand)

I had to have two doors painted last year. Does that leave an overspray that would be rough up on the roof? the rough section is as long as the door and as wide as 2 ft.

Any thoughts?

My guess is its overspray . Might want to look at either a medium or higher grade clay to remove that,

It might be overspray or perhaps tree sap. You might want to try a series of more aggressive pads along with a good paint polish.

Old to the forum.. Should I get a LED light bar for my grill?

Welcome mike.. Usually the detailing forum is for washing tips and stuff. You might be better off asking that in Second Gen, or searching for it.

Thanks for the awesome info for a noobies like me. I ordered $100 worth of these items that you recommended.

I ordered the following for washing:
Cotton Chenille Wash Mitt
Optimum Car Wash, 32oz
Cobra Guzzler HD Waffle Drying Towel

Anyone have a good youtube video for proper washing techniques?

Welcome to TW! www.autogeekonline.net is the place for you. I started my detailing obsession right here in this thread about a year ago. It has been a very rewarding hobby for myself.

What should I use to restore my wheel wells and exposed frame? I've read up on fluid film but I'm not completely sold on it.

Not sure if your dealer (assuming you bought a new 2013 Tacoma like I did) told you. But the seats already have scotch guard on them. Mine seem to be holding up pretty well. I have two German Shepherds that love to slobber, and still not a stain on any of the seats.

If you have OCD like I do with your seats; I would recommend ordering some custom made seat covers. They ran me ~$400 for the whole truck (double cab).
