Product Shopping List by Reflectology....

Post by Reflect Russ » Thu May 24, 2012 11:55 am

Just as an after thought from a couple of threads I thought I would start a list of products I use and would whole heartedly recommend....from wash through to lsp...chip in with yours if you like....

snow foam=valet pro ph neutral snow foam....

shampoo=Permanon Yacht Cleanser....Zaino Z7....Zymol Autowash....Scholl Concepts Shampol....Swissvax Car bath....

Wheel Cleaner= Scholl Concepts Rim 7....Starngloss Hjul....3m Wheel and tyre....Nanotech SSt citrus wheel cleaner....

APC(all purpose cleaner)= Autosmart G101....Scholl Concepts Spam....

Mineral stain Remover=Permanon Omega
Organic Stain Remover=Permanon Hecta

Tar and Glue Remover=Tardis

Decontamination=Iron X....Concours Car Care Dissolver

Glass cleaner=3m Glass Cleaner....Nilglass....Reflectology Glass and Dash....Permanon Glass

Glaze=Chemical Guys Wet Mirror Finish....Chemical Guys Ez Creme Glaze....

LSP=Permanon....Ceramishield....Zymol....Swissvax.... Scholl Concepts W6,SW20,SW10 and i have a paste wax to try....Raceglaze 55....Zaino....Collinite 476 and 845....

LSP for Wheels=Zaino Z-CS....Permanon Aircraft Supershine....Everbrite Wheel Guard....Ceramic Coatings ie: Cquartz...Gtechniq C5....Ceramishield(available only with Detail)

LSP for Matt Paints...=Permanon Supermatt....Scholl Concepts No Gloss....there is also Opaque but wouldnt really trust anything with 40odd percent grade 1 carnauba in it not to add even a hint of a sheen....but others like it....all i can say is that it states it is for SATIN MATT...which is a far cry from just plain old MATT....as satin has a sheen....

Quick Detailers=Permanon....Zaino Z6/Z8....Finishkare 425....Meguiars Last Touch....

Tyre Dressings=Zaino Z16....Swissvax Pneu....Meguiars Endurance....Scholl Concepts Blue....

Interior/exterior Dressings=Scholl Concepts Purple....Permanon All Round....Carpro Perl....Einzett Intensive....Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber....303....

Leather Cleaner=Gliptone GT12...Zaino Z9...Zymol Leather Cleaner....Scholl Concepts Spam....Steam....

Leather Protector=Permanon....LTT....

Leather Conditioner=Gliptone GT11...Zaino Z10....Scholl Concepts Skin (not yet available) this is more of a nourishing protector though....

Metal Polish=Autosol....Einzett Chrome and Metal....Nanotech Sst Metal Cleaner....Belgom(I have used this and is awesome but tas bin a while)....Britemax Twins....

Fabric Protector interior and roof=303....Gtechniq I1....AG Roof Protector....these 2 i have used but i have also used the fabric guard from a Ceramic Kit that I have....

And I have just had brain drain i probably have more but lost it....anyway everything listed above is a small array of whats in my detailing gear.... but if any of you want to add your own preferences then please do as I am sure folk would like choice...as if the list isnt enough....

what a good idea! :jump_clap:

its so good to see what the professionals use, there's so many crap cleaners and polishes out there at such rip off prices.

i don't mind paying a good price if it's good, so this list helps loads!

thanks!

Only think I think is missing Russ is wheel sealant? My nominations for that would be G-Techniq-C5 / AG EGP / Jetseal 109

Others I would suggest to add.

Wheel Cleaner - AG Custom Wheel Cleaner
Shampoo - Duragloss 915
Glaze- CG Blacklight (for pearlescents and dark metallics)
LSP- CG SpeedArmour / Collinite 915
QD -V7 Hybrid / Duragloss clean and shine
QD LSP top up and for those pipe banned people Duragloss Aqua Wax or CG P40

I know it's not on the recommended list, and perhaps for good reason,but I've tried the Poorboys Wheel sealant and I'm pretty unimpressed to be honest.

Can't really seem to see the difference between this and any boggo-standard wax (although it does smell nice).

Perhaps the huge amounts of brake dust from the RS6 is too much of a challenge, or I let the dust build up too much between washes?

The big gaps between spokes does mean that they are easy to clean though, no matter how dusty they get. Much better than some of the million small spokes on some BMWs.

Have edited it to include wheel protection....you will notice the Ceramishield is listed but is only available via an authorised detailer....I have ears that this will become available over the tintertweb to the public shortly as a new version will be released that gives even greater results....

NEVER use steam on leather. It may clean but it really messes up the natural oils in it and will just hasten cracking . . .
