The last of what I ordered from Christmas came in today. I've been getting into car detailing a lot lately so I figured I'd actually try some better products so I went with Griot's Garage. Was recommended by a friend and I have to say I love it so far.

Here's what I got.
-Machine polish kit
*6in random orbital
*Clay bar
*Machine Polish #3
*Best of Show wax
*Speed Shine
And I also order some extra stuff to,
-Machine Polish #2
-Wheel Cleaner (approved by BBS)
-Window Cleaner
-Extra Speed Shine (went through it kinda fast)
-15 way hose nozel with soap dispenser
-And finally a carrying case for everything.



Secret compartment for towels










And the polishing kit


Not bad for first try [thumb]


Also for the car I got a few little goodies from CFM..
-Billet anodized blue HVAC knobs
-" " " Oil and Powersteering caps
-Billet key hole bezel
-new plugs
-new thermostat







And finally! I have an ORP I'm hopefully getting.



I know it's alittle late for x-mas threads but I finally got everything I ordered from my x-mas. Let me know what you guys think [thumb]

sweet ass! if u dont mind me asking, how much did u get all that detailing stuff for? ive also been trying to get into the whole car cleaning and detailing thing. cant wait for nicer weather to give the car a nice cleaning. lol.
With just the griots stuff I got, it was right around $300, I also bought some stuff from Meguiars online I forgot to mention, some good all purpose cleaner and some trim dressing for like $30. Not to mention all the other stuff I have aswell which is mostly Meguiars Mirror Shine stuff and my favorite wax lately has been Turtle Wax liquid paste, it was $6 and looks good and is extremely easy to apply and remove. My roommates dad wants me to do his S4 and is gonna pay me like $125. I've been toying with the idea of opening a detail shop sometime in the future so I figure it's good practice [thumb]

Oh yes. With the Machine Polish 3 it took out probably 80% of swirls so I bought the Machine Polish 2 which is slightly heavier. The wax is great to, dries to a rock hard finish and looks amazing.
