Regardless if you have a vehicle that is garage kept and only comes out once a month for a car show or a vehicle that gets driven every day in all conditions, care begins with the wash. All washes done here are done by hand and never with brushes that may cause scratches. All products are both environmentally and vehicle friendly.
After washing, the next step in decontaminating your vehicle's surface is through the use of a clay bar. A professional grade clay bar is used on every vehicle that will have any wax or coating applied to it to make sure that the surface is free of any oils and small debris.
Every vehicle has had a small, or large, scratch on it at one point and it can be an eyesore. Depending on the depth of the scratch, it can be removed with patience and compound. Another use for compound is to remove swirl marks on the vehicle. With time, most vehicles develop these small scratches for a number of reasons. They too can be removed with compound.
Even though the process is similar to using compound, polish is better used to enhance the surface after using compound. Think polish as the 1,000 grit sandpaper you use after the 400 grit (not a fair grit comparison, but you get the idea). Polish is safe on clear bras and many plastics as well. Nothing brings more depth to a paint than polish.
Wax has been around for a very long time and there have been a variety of different types. Hydrophobic carnauba wax has yielded the best results and lasts for about six months. The term hydrophobic can best be explained by placing two magnets together at the positive poles. Now, imagine one is water and one is the surface of your vehicle. That is what causes water to bead up on the surface of a protected vehicle surface.
