    Question about matte wrap detail products. I see a cg matte spray and an Adams spray. I usually stay away from cg stuff nowadays. Any opinions out there on what I should use?

    I rinsed the car down and dried it by hand. Didn't need any soap. It wasn't wiping off dry though, I needed the water.

    Yeah, it happens with several products. The beads get dust in them which settles when they dry.

    Sorry if this has been asked....what do you guys clean your trd pro wheels with? Not the cleaning solution, but the actual brush or whatever to clean it with. What material is the best for those wheels?

    I got some knock off Wheel Woolies from Amazon a couple of years ago. They’ve held up fine.

    These also work really well:

    Its been really good, a little pricey at $50 for the big jug.
    I'm looking at adams for $35/gal or Griots for $20/gal

    I use that or the Sprayway aerosol from Walmart. That handles anything short of bad water spots or caked on bugs.

    I’ve used and have BLACKFIRE and CarPro’s glass cleaner both are awesome but I park my trucks outdoors and it’s not cheap to use those products so I save them for inside windshields and full detail days otherwise I use invisible glass.

    Anybody on here use Prima products? Just found out they’re local to me. Their sealant and spray wax look promising.

    Figured I'd take a shot in the dark. Started making detailing time-lapse videos set to music for the business and they've brought in an insane amount of jobs with people specifically saying the videos made them want to have me detail their vehicles. So, I created a YouTube to upload the videos to since sometimes there are more restrictions on Instagram and Facebook.

    They aren't perfect by any means, but they'll only get better. Most recently is the AIO polish I posted in the Reflection thread. Condensed 2 hours of footage into two minutes.
    Posting here if anyone wants to take a look. Enjoy :cheers:

    Never used them....but they seem to be one of those 'niche' product lines that are good, but don't get a lot of press, kind of like Angelwax and Feynlab. I have read some reviews of their stuff, and they were positive from what I remember. Take a look on Autopia for reviews....I seem to recall reading some posts about their products there.

    Kinda what I was thinking. Been around awhile and don’t seem spread as thin as the other local option. Not quite as many spoons in the pot. Maybe what they do have is really good. I’ll make a trip down there.

    Working on it!
    The best glass cleaner (inside and out, with tint) is a quart of water with 4-5 drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid in a sprayer.
