Jus curoius whats waxs and polishes everyone uses for their trucks, rims, tires. I use mothers PowerMetal Aluminum for my rims, Meguiars Gold Class liquid wax, and Blue Coral soap for washing. I also use the mother powerball and power cone. As for tires i experiment with tires foams. What other tricks are there to keep your rig slick.?
: I use Menzerna Power Finish most frequently. Menz. Power Gloss or 3M Perfect-It rubbing compound if necessary. My finishing polish is Menz. PO85RD.
: I've got like twelve different ones.
The S2000 gets Rubbish Boy's Original Edition. The F250 gets Bilt Hamber Auto Balm. Collinite 845 and Werkstat Acrylic Jett Trigger are also in heavy rotation, depending on what the customer wants.
: Depends how bad they are. Usually, Simple Green Stuff APC works just fine. If the wheels are really awful, I go straight to the big iron - Meguiar's Wheel Brightener. It's STRONG stuff.
I've got a set of polished aluminum CCW Classics for the S2000. For those, I use car soap, and polish them with Wenol metal polish, plus a bunch of microfiber towels. Never again will I own a set of polished aluminum wheels...
: I clean them with the same APC I use on wheels. Dressing is usually Tropi-Care White Pearl, although I'm finding that Vinylex is a worthwhile substitute.
: If I'm stripping before clay, I use 1/2 blue Dawn dish soap and 1/2 Majestic Solutions SGS. This combo will strip everything but the paint. For regular maintenance washes, I use Majestic Solutions Ultra Gloss. At dry time on said maintenance washes, I pump up the shine with Duragloss Aquawax.
Quick Detail Spray
: I've got like five of them. Duragloss 921 "Fast Clean and Shine" is my current favorite. Meguiar's #34 Final Inspection is what I use to remove polishing residue, and when I want a QD that doesn't alter the finish. Occasionally I use Optimum Instant Detailer, but it's a little fussy to use.
