| People often ask me what they should use on their new/used vehicle.
It's an almost impossible question to answer because every person and every vehicle is different. Do you want a brighter shine that sparkles or a deeper, darker shine?
How often do you want to wax your car, every 30 days, every 3 months, twice a year?
How many steps are you willing to perform?
Are you looking for one-step, quick and easy, product or will you spend the better part
of a day to use a clay, polish, glaze and sealant?
There is no "best" or "right" product. Only by trying different products, on your car, will you find what works best and looks best to you. You might like the look of one product on your car and I might like the look of another. Much of this comes down to personal preference.
Don't despair, this isn't rocket science! Given our years of experience with these products, we're going to start you in the right direction. Following are product recommendations by my wife Jan, our son Jon, and myself. Chances are, you will fit into one of these categories.
Jan offers three packages she names "Bare Essentials."
While Jan enjoys driving a clean, shiny car as much as the rest of us, she approaches car care from a perspective of investing the least amount of time, effort and money. Her recommendations are right on the mark. If you want to take care of your car with a minimum investment in time, without rubbing your arm off and without taking a second mortgage to buy car care products, please consider her Bare Essentials recommendations.
Our son Jon joined the family business after years of detailing cars. Jon is more of an enthusiast and willing to devote a little more time and energy to achieve a show-car-like shine. Jon's two Sizzling Shine recommendations are the perfect introduction to high-end, enthusiast car care. The products are easy to use (even by a novice) and will produce a head-turning shine.
Lastly, I outline the products I use to achieve my personal "perfect shine" in my Reference Package. These products, applied by machine (I use a Porter Cable 7424 polisher), create a balance of brightness, depth and liquidity that I find stunning on my pewter colored, sedan.
