    Awesome 5.0! Is that with the all-finish paint protection or some kind of wax? That thing looks good!

    Blackfire Wet Diamond. The company is called Blackfire. Cost me 39.99 for the bottle. It's a paint sealant. I clayed the car first, then put this stuff on it. I put some on my Tacoma Sunday.

    And yes, the Mustang was done by hand.

    Excellent choice! Some of my favorite products to work with! Next time you order pads try LC 5.5"x7/8" low profiles. The PC spins them much easier. You get better correction with less time.

    Wheels/Tires. I use black magic.
    wash soap, I use turtle wax ICE.
    and also use these every wash,
    [​IMG] also use the turtle wax paste wax every 2 months or so.

    and for the inside i use invisible glass, and this, it does not leave a realy shine or anything, but cleans well and thats all i really care about. may try something different next time. [​IMG]

    edit: also the spray wax and polish are great if you wash the truck and the next day or latter that day it rains. if it’s not going to rain for a few days/weeks give it a quite spray and wipe down and she will be back to looking like she did before the rain.

    chemical guys, dodo juice, and wolfgang...... to just name a few of my favs. used to swear by megs til i got introduced to the boutique lines. when applied properly its incredibly difficult to beat the results IMO plus application and removal is about a hundred times easier with the boutique brands than what it is with the OTC stuff. but its gonna cost ya.

    [​IMG]

    took this pic about 3 days after the detail, because i had forgotten to snap a pic and had already gotten a light rain and me and the rest of the neighborhood it seemed mowed grass. but just took the leaf blower to the truck and then snapped a couple pics.

    Gorgeous car. I love the newer Mustangs.

    I like Tech Wax 2.0 I am sure the Blackfire product is a sealant just like the Tech Wax. I prefer sealants over waxes.

    Off the shelf NXT 2.0 tech wax is hard to beat for one step.

    I use old school Klasse. Cleaner wax, and high gloss sealant. That keeps the paint clean and protected. I throw a regular carnauba on top of that for the wet look. I don't do amy correction on my Tacoma since it is out on thetrail getting pinstriped a few times a month, but this process keeps it looking good. Plus silver is very forgiving.

    I honed my skills on a black '09 GT500. It was beautiful, but a part time job to keep it that way.

    Meguiars is a really good product, that is for sure. Of course no wax or shine product will be worth a darn without a good, quality paint job. I've seen people try so hard to make their 15 year old car with faded paint and chipped clear coat look good. Personally I can't wait until I get my paint job that I did not get done the way I wanted, cleaned up good. Then the finish will look awesome!

    There are several products already named that I like, but lately I've been using the 3M stuff to wash, wax, and polish my truck and I'm quite pleased.

    tried out XMT 360 yesterday, needless to say, I am very impressed with the AIO (All In One) product. Doesn't have the cutting ability of a swirl remover, but did remove some scuffs too.
