Anyone who wants to try a "quick sealant/wax" type product pick up Detail King Aquapel. You apply it to a wet microfiber and rub it on the car while it's wet ( after you wash+rinse). Then buff off with a dry microfiber. I went back to using it after Blacklight+V7 and I'm really happy with how it beads/durability. I put it on my jeep and it lasted ~3 months over winter. I've been applying it after every wash to my vette and I'm really happy with how it looks.

Aquartz Titanium. Ridiculous durability.

I'm actually not too familiar with good shops in the city area, mostly just out my way.

Alright I finally made time a week or so ago to detail the outside. Didn't have the money for claybar but I did wash, compound, polish and wax and WOW did I notice an improvement. I used to just wash/wax but once I did the whole thing it really popped.

Took me around 15 hours total after a ton of smoke breaks and beer breaks

Advice... Buying a pressure washer to do the house and house type ****. What is the bare minimum or what do I want in one to make it awesome for detailing. Will likely be gas unless there is an electric worthwhile. Not looking to spend much money, under $500 if possible, or less is better.

If you wanna go electrics I think a Cam-spray is around your budget. They're supposedly very good. i was considering one for a while.

I need to find someone to redo my website. I don't like it and my prices are all wrong/outdated. bah

Stopped in at Autoality today and picked up some stuff.

Washed my corvette with CG Honeydew snow foam and got some CG Lava to try out.

Polished with IP/Orange LC pad+ FLex, 1 coat of blacklight applied with PC, let cure. Applied 1 coat of Lava with the PC, waited an hour or so and wiped down the car with HV7. It looks REALLY good. I can't say much for durability yet, but I love working with Lava. Ended up only paying ~45 dollars for it too

When did Aquapel start making paint treatment? I thought it was a glass treatment?
