So $228, I didnt include the cost of microfiber towels, Isopropyl alcohol, a bottle, car wash soap, sponge/mitt, waffle weave drying towel, but you get the point.

It sounds like a lot but its an investment that will yield savings if you do it more than once.

I will say this though, once you start a collection you want to keep on adding products to expand lol.

LOL yeah i use a buffer every chance i get. why work harder? you'll be buffing the finish out anyway might as well.



that makes sense...i always just use a quick detailer and use that as the wipe down.


yeah the coatings are pretty $...i like them but you have to apply it on perfectly or else it won't go on right...PITA IMO.



dude...you should totally try it out. you don't use a lot of it on each car...that jar will last you for a LONG time.



LOL 845 is ok...cheap and provides "ok" shine...so i'm ok with it. the big selling point is that it's cheap.
Just read some reviews and I am convinced on the FG400 .

Actually ONR diluted as a QD works too for a wipedown, so I should have just done that lol.

I dont know why but I hate having to wash pads after im done lol. Thats one big reason why I refrain from using a buffer lol. Its the laziness in me lol.

I dont mind using the P21 on the 4runner, but the fact that its lifespan isn't as long as a synthetic wax means I'll have protect the paint again in a few weeks...and considering its a beater, I cant justify the effort LOL....if you haven't noticed, yeah Im lazy.

I'm sure Nitroseal will hold up, that stuff is great!
