I was about to ask this, but I decided to SEARCH first.
Thanks. Just what I was looking for. You said Armorall is bad, then why are you using it?

added to the FAQ as well.

Have a question? Try the my.is FAQ or, if you can't find an answer there, search before posting your question (hopefully in the correct forum).

other great product lines if you know a distributor are Mark 5 products ( with the roman numeral sign for 5), PRO products from BAF industries, Auto Magic, and Auto Glym. PRO and Mark 5 are based in SO Cal and Auto Glym is based out of england. i no longer distribute any of the product lines but have ways of getting them if anybody knows of there products and know what they want.

this is the guy to talk to if you want mark 5 or auto glym products! tell him you are a friend of CASS and he will set you up with the BEST! stuff that you can buy in any store!

BTW work the WHEELS, WHEEL WELLS AND ENGINE BAY FIRST!!! If you use a degreaser on these parts and get them onto your newly waxed paint you will need to rewax the area. I suggest that you do this first before you wash the car in preparation to claying polishing waxing.

Nice write up. Opinions on Turtle Wax's Liquid Clay Bar? I typically steer clear of Turtle Wax products, but clay barring is a pain in the boot!

How come you're using the Absorber and the Meguair’s Water Magnet?

I agree with all this stuff (I did skim a lot of it I admit, but it seemed legit from my experience)
