I think I have a problem

Hello all,
Now it's detailing supplies. I find myself reading about them, joined a Detailing forum, tried out most of the new stuff on the market etc.
It started out with Adam's Polishes. They all smell amazing. They all work as good or better then most stuff I used before them. Then Griots Garage I discovered and started digging into them. Now Jay Leno's garage stuff, been through all of that.
So Chemical guys I only tried their Claybar and clay bar lube. It works as good as anything else I've used.
My son seems to have shared in my Obsession as he opened a Amazon account just to buy Detailing stuff LOL.

    LOL my son has got there. He had one of his friends come over so he can detail his car. He paid my son to do it but my son told me that he would have done it for free he needed his fix LOL. His car my car my wife's car where all clean waxed and basically perfect so he needed another way.
    If you live near us I'm sure he would take care of you for a low price. He does pretty good work as he just loves it as much or maybe more then I do.

    Sounds like you're raising a considerate young man with a good head on his shoulders, and more importantly a good heart.

    Better not go to autogeek.net then ;) I went through a phase with that, and settled on Klasse products.

    I got into those car care forums pretty deep back when I had the black Mercedes. I dropped about $400 on polishers, pads, cloths, compounds, etc. Most of it has sat unused since I sold the car. Silver cars just don't need as much attention to look good.
    Main 2-ch:
    Sony SS-M9; LSA Statement Amplifier; VPI HW-19 Mk3/Sumiko Premier FT-4/Audio Technica AT15SA; Pass Labs DIY Pearl Phono; Sony SCD-C333ES SACD Changer; TEAC UD-301 DAC; Dell/WYSE 5010 (running Daphile); Sony ST-SA5ES Tuner; Nanotec Golden Strada speaker cables (SR+#79 Shotgun); Audioquest Coral interconnects

    I want to get a wall unit with hanging cabinets and vertical tall cabinets. The left bay of the garage is looking very dated and needs an upgrade. I also want to get a Tile floor the gray black and red checker design. I saw many cool ones online and youtube.

    I don't think you have that much stuff Dan. Honestly, you need to try different products to see which ones work the best for you and your vehicle(s).

    I have a Dewalt Buffer. It's a professional grade machine. I have several pads wool cut pads, foam cut pads and polish and finishing pads. I use to be a detailer many years ago.
