Very cool write up....
Question...has anyone used the Powerball from Mothers? Irongrave kept stressing no circular motion when waxing....just wondering.

i use it for my wheels and chrome but its bad for paint, its not a buffer and it will burn the paint, we tried it on a fender on my friends 240sx thats gonna get new paint and even at the lowest setting on my drill it wrecked the paint. how ever it rocks on polished metals and chrome and even plastic head lights but do not use it on paint

nice write up! I would spend the majority of a nice day under a tree doing that with my previous car. I haven't been able to do that to my frontier yet (just got it a month ago) but I'm afraid. My previous car was a little audi s4 and i know washing the truck is going to be a pain.

wax what ever u want
wash i really like the mothers
tire cleaner, i like black majic's one that is self contained (works good and not too messy)

some places have deals where you can get a package for full detailing

Sticky,

Thanks for the write-up, pics, and vid. I had to go to ______mart yesterday after work just to buy detail products. I was foing to detail today, but alas rain today through part of Saturday .

I was particularly looking forward to using the California blade.

Thanked Sticky should have thanked Irongrave -- oops! Sorry! My bad!

'01 / CC / SE 3.3 lit. / Stock & Clean & Alpine Green.
Why didn't I buy this in '07 instead of that other truck?!?!?!
