Some detail products?

Ok, So been along 3 weeks of work for the truck, I got me a clay bar from mothers, and thats it.

Whats a good soap to use? before the clay And whats the best way to dry the beast?
was looking at the california water blade, Should I order up one of those and some microfiber towels or something??

wash the truck alot, But it just never looks that clean.

Mahalos for any help

I like both the soap and the drying towels from Adam's Polishes.

Chamois with the water blade to dry with is what I like, they don't seem to scratch like some towels do.

Chamois, pronounced shammy, is basically a piece of leather. They really do a good job. I like them way more than any kind of towel.

Re: Some detail products?

I prefer the chamois too. Those microfiber towells drive me nuts.....My hands are so calloused and rough they grab and snag on everypart of my hand, and I hate the way it feels when I hold it. Anybody else? Or am I the weirdo lol...

Re: Some detail products?

shammy x3 here. I use the one called "absorber". Got it at wal-mart but it works AWSOME. I use it on my truck and black camaro with no worries about scratches or anything. And holds a chit ton of water. Whatever you do, DONT GET SHAMWOW...
