Idk what to use for the outside...I've never waxed my car so in a few months I'll clay bar it, wax it, and see how it goes...any suggestions for outer wash soap and tire soap...I use a sponge and brush respectively

I use the Meguires gold car wash soap or the wash & wax spray, when its cold out & don't want to use water. That works awesome as I'm really surprised.

I use Poorboys World Natural Look dressing. I'm not a big fan of really shiny stuff and this stuff works really well. More of a satin sheen after you buff it with a dry towel. I use one towel for applying and one for buffing it. It can be used on all interior surfaces, including leather.

I like Meguiar's Natural. I use some Simple Green for cleaner on all the trim, everything but the seats, and finish with the Meguiar's Natural Shine Protectant. Seems to work really well.

I use Einszett 1Z plastic deep cleaner and Einszett 1Z cockpit premium… IMO some of the absolute BEST on the market… after I've used that to clean a dirty interior, I maintain with Chemical Guys "InnerClean". I hate shiny dashes, as they cause glare, and most "shiny" products attract dust particles, I go with any interior product that leaves a matte, OEM finish… It all depends on what your cup of tea is…

Just purchased some Chemical guys GreenClean and Nonsense.

Dilute it, spray it everywhere, rub with green pad, finish with a wipe off with a microfiber towel. Marvel from the results haha

I picked up a gallon of the Nonsense as I use a lot of interior cleaner… and for plastics it should work marvels! I was really liking the results thus far.

Try using the Mothers Clay Bar Kit. I have used it and it works wonders. The steps i take when doing a outside detail on paint is in this order: Clay Bar, Rubbing Compound (I used Meguiars Rubbing Compound) Then a Cleaner Wax (aslo Meguiars in the tub.) Thats what I have used as in simple grab of a Wal-mart shelf outside detail. Yes, if you went through Chemical Guys you can get alot better product. But for a Saturday afternoon detail it isnt bad. I also take my wax off with spray wax (Lots of people do).
