    Which one did you go with? Do you rinse after the snow foam and then use a wash mitt with new soap or do you foam and use the wash mitt once the foam is on the vehicle?

    this is the first of two parts ... I find these videos very helpful.



    I am a bit of a detailing geek and find there are many really good products and sources. If you end up going with a DA random orbital polisher, I will make a pitch for using Griot's Garage machine polish series for the simple reason those polishes have a "diminishing factor" where the abrasives deteriorate with use so you will never damage your paint or remove too much. Most pro polishes, while of equal quality - Meguire's 205 for example does not have this diminishing factor due to it's chemical makeup. A pro will achieve similar results with both but they aren't really the same even though the are both an abrasive polish. The Griot's Garage products are made specifically for DIYers and are very safe to use.

    Awesome!

    Yeah the vidoes are made private now. Maybe you can search for some more on youtube. I am sure they are many you can see that will teach you what you want to learn.

    Washing and waxing is always fun. I love using "mothers" cleaning stuff it seems to work for me. On using a buffer...your car is still too new for a buffer, and be careful if you do ever use one. They can take the clear coat off if improperly used. If you wanna know all the things about detailing and cleaning a car. there is a book out there that talks about it, it's a pretty good book too i'd recomended to anyone looking to keep their car looking really nice.
