A lot of good product recommendations. Once you have c-coating and PPF, just some basic tools that are good for any washing that will cut down on time and aggrivation are: No Spots Pro, Master Blaster, and some Detail Guardz. If these have already been mentioned, I apologize for my lack of searching skills!

I have heard many good things about the master blaster, though, I prefer to use a leaf blower.......which works fine for me.

Well the book arrived and it is beyond pathetic. It's going back to Amazon post haste.
Or you can shred that to pieces and post the photo here for our entertainment :D :D

I was thinking of doing that on some pos that I got from Amazon.

Yes, leaf blower. I use a small handy leaf blower made by Hitachi FRB40VA. It's lightweight, simple blow speed adjustable, powerful, and durable. I bought it in 2014 and it's still going strong like new. You just need to replace two coils every 3 years (coil is sold everywhere and replacing them only takes 30 secs - open two screws, literally just stuff both in, close crews, done).

Not a bad idea......in fact, even the vendor doesn't want the "book" back so they told me to keep it and they refunded my money.:rolleyes:

Looks good is that still available? Tried to search online but not much luck.

Hitachi rebranded its power tools to Hikoki a few years ago and somehow they no longer made this. Alternatively, this uses similar engine:

Heads up for people with sloped driveway that want to move their wash/rinse buckets around the car as you wash it and not have them run away down the driveway. The bucket buddy is a great option. I will post gadgets from time to time that are helpful and hopefully other forum members can post useful gadgets they have discovered to make our collective hobby more enjoyable.

In another thread I recommended the use of the duster (pictured below) but it probably belongs here. I generally am opposed to dusters but this one is so soft, low impact, and I found it to be useful. I first came across this duster after watching a video by Scott (Dallas Paint Corrections), and then went and bought one from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Very handy. I want one since I always do the 2-bucket wash method.

It works very well on my sloped driveway. I have been using it for about 3 years, and I am very satisfied.

I found this headlamp by Scangrip Lighting about 2 years ago that is very helpful when detailing the interior of the car. The interior detailing was always challenging because of the poorly illuminated dark colored interiors that we find in sports cars. It has two levels of brightness and it can be turned on and off either with a button or you can turn the light on and off with a wave of your hand (light sensor). It's rechargeable and has excellent battery life.

I use a swifter Duster on my rims to collect the brake dust. Works really well.

Interesting suggestion. Are you concerned about producing micro scratches on the rims or are you careful to use minimal pressure? Generally I wait to clean the rims when I am doing a complete wash. Of course, as we all do, I clean the wheels/rims first to completion then going on to wash the rest of the car.

Footwear is also important when washing the car to prevent slipping & injury. I always wear sandals when detailing my cars. My first was Nike Solarsoft sandals (sole was too soft - made in China), then Nike beach sandal (sole was too hard, tripped & almost broke my ankle - made in China) and the latest Birkenstock classic Arizona (just perfect, very comfortable- made in Germany).
