    Which car finish products do you use?

    Car wash, wax, leather cleaner, etc.

    Mothers? Adam's? Meguiar's? Pinnacle? The prices are all over the place, and to a lesser degree, quality (or so it seems).

    Hernando. He's does them right in our office park. Got a team of about 4 or 5guys, you call him, he picks up the car and drops it off 2 or 3 hours later. Int/ext all in $20. Does a fantastic job.

    There's a carwash right down the street from me. I like to ride on the pile of slush in median and splash the cars with salt and slush as they pull out. Good times, good times....

    +1 Zaino is the best, but it's also the most expensive.

    Meguiars or Mothers are both good, moderately priced products. Do you use a clay bar before you wax (and polish)? You should. Otherwise you're just waxing over grime and dead bugs.

    Paulie i first use Dawn dishwashin soap with the clay bar, then I still have my old bottle of Z1. Let that stuff dry off, and apply the Z2.....then finally finish it off with Z6. Pretty good workout but worth the awesome result and shine! :D

    Is there a window cleaner that doesn't cause streaks? I haven't found one that doesn't.
