Poor Boys SSR1 Polish or Meguiar's Ultimate polish (have a full bottle of each lol)

Turtle Wax or Meguiar's wax...........new favorite is Meguiar's Synthetic Sealant (have all 3 lol)

add these to the list of "the good stuff"
I've gather this much info after countless hours of lurking detailing forums:
also, let me save you some $

meguiar's APC+ (use it everywhere), - even tires
CG maxi suds (for foam cannon - cheaper than honeydew),
mtm hydro (foam cannon) get it @ wayfair w/coupon $60 compared to $100+ rebrand
speedy prep towel fine grade (for the lazy), (don't get the medium)
Collinite 845 (inexpensive, good lasting wax),
ONR (two bucket, quick detailer, clay lube)
Ultima UWW+ (as versatile as ONR, great waterless wash)
Microfibertech - half off what others sell their MFs for
Meguiars Ultimate compound (easy to use compound -otc)
Menzerna P085RD - the finishing touch to any job (best glazing)
Menzerna SI-1500, SF-4000 (polish/finish essential kit)
BFWD - great sealant
Stoner invisible glass - windows

[B]Car Soap: I never use soap on SLICK!

Claybar: Griot's www.griotsgarage.com

Polish (light cutting): Griot's complete compound using his 6" Orbital Buffer with orange pad

Polish (medium cutting): the above

Polish (heavy cutting): the above

Glaze: NONE

Sealant: NONE

Wax: Zymol concourse wax

Tire Dressing: Sanctiond Tire Glaze

Wheel Sealant: Volks are raw aluminum polished with Mothers metal polish

Interior Protectant: Zymol leather cleaner

Leather Care: Zymol leather cream

Quick Detailer: The best...Adams detail spray

Glass Cleaner: Adams glass cleaner which I apply after using a his clay bar and only removed using micro towel for best results!

Once I've clayed and machined compounded my paint surface Zymol Concourse Wax finishes the job! And yes, it is literally applied by hand! If it didn't look great and last I wouldn't be spending over $300 for a pound!

I realize that your product of choice may vary from situation to situation and will also depend on what color of vehicle you are detailing, however just your overall favorite product for the category is fine. Just cut and paste the above into your post and fill in your favorite product. Thanks.
I use what works best for every part of my coupe after 60 years of trial/error, and success...look at the pic!
