Well, you’re right. I never really talk about detailing and all the questions so far remained unanswered. Going to change that today, even though I am not someone who’s cleaning and detailing his cars every day, may be twice a year and on special occasions.

Main reason is, I just don’t like to do it. I prefer to either work on the cars or drive them. But since some of the guys from pelicanparts as well as early911sregistry asked questions about the detailing products that I use, I am showing you today what I have in my garage.
Just like everybody else, I tried different car detailing supplies and compared them side by side. You know, they are all great and not that different from one another, whether those are products from the Chemical Guys, Mrs. Meyers or TriNova just to mention a few. Tried them, liked them but I’ve had the best results with another brand: Car Guys. Except for one thing. The very best car shampoo comes from Poorboy’s, the Poorboy’s World Super Slick & Suds Car Wash.
Poorboy’s Super Slick & Suds is a high foaming shampoo which offers great potential as a go-to shampoo for regular washes on your classic cars. It creates lots of lubrication between your wash mitt and paint, making for a safe and gentle wash. This is good for me as I am washing my cars not too many times, so lots of lubrication will reduce swirl marks and scratches.
It’s a pH neutral shampoo, so it won’t degrade or even strip any existing waxes or sealants on the surface of the paint. Slick & Suds also contains free-rinsing detergents which help to disperse water from the paint’s surface. Awesome product.

Oh well, this is the best car wax I’ve ever used. One, because it’s super easy to use. Just spray on and wipe off. Done. Two, it’s streak free, so you won’t turn your rubber and plastic white after wiping it off. And I do love the shiny look. Last time it didn’t take more than 10 minutes, the whole job! Really amazed by that product. If I had to pick one, that would my favourite. It is seriously the best car polish, the best car wax ever.

Tire Shine Spray? Really? Well, it depends. It really depends on how you apply it. It comes with a microfibre applicator and with that one you are able to choose from a deep black to wet gloss shine. Up to you. I just use it to have the tires black again after I’ve washed the car. Thats it.
