    I'm running low on spray detailer and figured I'd give chemical guys a shot since I've heard them mentioned so many times. Went to their website and was a little overwhelmed by options. Which detailer and towels do I get???? Truck is black btw.....so it needs it every hour lol

    He's probably waxing his truck right now because the wax he put on yesterday got washed off with his carwash this morning. :D He'll be here soon.

    What a bunch of comedians!

    @graves037
    So Michael, I haven't used much if CG detailer sprays but their soaps are pretty darn good.

    I have talked to folks who really, really like the V7 Hybrid spray and the CG synthetic quick detailer, which is less expensive.

    As far as towels, a good quality Microfiber plush 2 sided towel or a towel like this one...
    https://www.theragcompany.com/eagle-edgeless-16-x-16-microfiber-towel/

    The nice thing about the first towel is that it offers two different naps in one towel which comes in handy sometimes.

    Also, you want to take care of those towels when you wash them. Warm to hot water, proper soap, no mixing with other towels, like towels with wax residue, no softened water, or fabric softener.
    When drying low or no heat and no dryer sheets

    I really like the Honeydew Snow Foam soap. That is the only thing with CG, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all their products.

    Hey Sean, @Sean266, here is a good wax...
