You will be happier with the results and it will last up to 6 months before you need to do a touch up.

I use mainly Meguiar's products in my detailing business. They are economical and powerful products that deliver the consistent results I demand for my customers.

Their All-Purpose Cleaner is quite simply an amazing and versatile product. At 10:1 it has enough power to clean tires, carpets, dash and trim, vinyl and even leather.

Their HyperDressing is no slouch either. At 4:1, it leaves a natural matte finish that is non-greasy and doesn't attract dust; perfect for interiors. At 2:1 or 3:1 it leaves a great semi-gloss look for exterior trim, tires and wheel wells.

And if any of you guys use a buffer, the M105 & M205 is the best polishing combo I've tried so far. It cuts fast and leaves a beautiful finish.

You just can't go wrong with these products, IMO.

yeah I started 3 stepping 5 or 6 years ago. Haven't switched since. I tend to do more clay bar then polish th an using all three steps. I got thier scratch removal a couple weeks ago but haven't tried it out yet. I have no doubt it will work. Rockford try clay bar and then polish and wax, you should like the results.

I use Clay Bar with Showtime, Cleaner/Sealer Wax, then Carnuba/Polish wax. On a new truck you don't need Clay Bar, that's more for getting crud out of the clear coat that's been there for awhile. Honestly the truck is not that much of a challenge give newer paint, and somewhat "dirt-friendly" colors, so I'd rather show results from a 1991 SE-R I own, it's a) black b) 18 year old paint/150k miles. Now that's a challenge to keep looking good - here after 3-step process:



Anyone who has ever had a black vehicle know's it's not easy to keep clean and they show every flaw in paint. Look at the pass side reflection here, all done by hand, too.

Great to hear this from someone who knows their business vs. my trial and error aka dumb luck

What to you think of the Mother's Ball for consumer use? I know it's not professional grade, but am tempted to get one and try it out on top of either the cleaner or the carnuba polish/wax.

Thanks in advance.
