    I am just wondering how many of you choose what "system" or brand or combo of brands to use on your car?



    There are sooo many out there apparently (ie. Natty`s, Meguiars, Souveran, Klasse, Menzerna, Zainos, etc...)



    Obviously everyone on here has subjective opinions on what they like, what combo gave their particular color/car/case the perfect shine, etc...



    Just wondering how you came about what you use daily/monthly/annually/whatever?? Was it trial and error?? Did someone with the same car in same color effect your purchase?



    I am just looking for some opinions on this subject because I have a bunch of cars in my family in a bunch of colors and would like to detail all of them but I am just not sure what to use on what...



    Thanks

    i spent alot of time browsing on forums like this, reading up on products that were in my price range and so on



    then order some and try it..some people will prefer a certain look on a certain color and thats down to personal taste



    there are also some companys,sites that have sample for free or cheap

    I do what Steveo does--get info here, think about what I might want to try on my (dark gray) car, and what is in my price range.



    For example, I`d love to try Souveran this spring, but its price doesn`t work well with my child`s college bills.



    I really give it some thought, as I would hate to have products sitting around that I don`t use. However, it is inevitable. I`m sure that just about everyone has something on the "inactive" list.

    You`re going to get satisfactory results with almost any product you use, as long as your process and techniques are sound. One of the sayings here is "process is more important than product".

    I read the reviews by other autopians, and I also try out the products if possible. Of course, you`ll end up with unused products, but you can give those to others to get them to start caring for their car`s paint.

    The biggest factor for me is ease of use. If I had a product that looks great and goes on/off easily, I`ll use it frequently. If it smells great, that`s even more reason to use it. Car or color doesn`t make much difference to me. I use products that I enjoy using, whether the car be black, red, or white.

    interesting responses...many thanks...



    Well, I was a big Klasse fan when I had my 03 Maxima brand new (but that was with brand new paint and me taking care of it since day 1)



    With my 01 black infiniti, I bought it with swirls and less than perfect paint. Klasse didn`t seem to cut it for me (but then again I didnt have my PC yet either)



    I purchased Souveran w/o money being a factor. I simply wanted the best black paint I could have (especially knowing how cheap Nissan/Infiniti paint is ) and did some research and Souveran seems to love dark colored paint.



    I am just wondering if I should invest in some other products to suit my other car`s needs (as well as future customers should I decide to start a lil side business)

    having a clean surface try some Red Moose Glaze on your car. Then apply your Pin. Sourveran. 24 hours later take a hand sprayer that has been in the refrigerator overnight and mist one section of the car - say 1/2 the roof. Apply a second coat of PS while keeping the surface misted. Then you`ll get the hang of it. Go to the next section repeat. After completing the whole car start with the first section and repeat process. Then dry car off. You will have the most amazing shine!!!

    After you`re around sites like this for a while, you`ll probably find some members who a)seem to be on your wavelength with regard to your specific circumstances, and b) seem to know their stuff. The products recommended by these people are the ones I`d try when looking for something new.

    Yeah, same here. I don`t subscribe to the "struggle to master a product" mentality and I want this stuff to be as enjoyable as possible.
