Hey Phil,

I'm a bit new to detailing. I've washed, waxed, and did my first Zaino kit back in the spring. But i'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to pain restoration and polishing.

a shot before zaino to give an idea of what my paint is like.



What kind of pads do I need to get for a PC for cosmo black? Is there a good starting kit if I already have a PC? What are my basic steps? I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the products people use in their writeups, and am a bit confused on what the purpose of each product is; but the results are amazing!

sure thing.

I would go with either the Einszett Pro Line Kit and orange /white/black pads

or I would go with

Menzerna SIP and PO106FA with orange/white pads

Hey Phil,

Can you put together a solid detail start up kit for an Alpine White car? I am looking for a PC random orbital and the required accessories/products to get started with the DIY detail process. My car has always been clayed and zymoled (blue cleaner wax) on a regular basis and the paint is in overall good shape but I have some minor paint swirls from 9 years of washing. Thanks in advance!

Nick

Phil

I recently just finished a 18 hour detail job on my JB which came out absolutely amazing with the stuff I purchased from you IP/106FF/105/Glanz, my M literally looks better than showroom condition right now. The main question is when does the Glanz wear out and when should I look at redo'ing the whole process?

Steve

I'm hoping you took some pictures Steve.

Glanz should last a while 2-6 months.

you would repeat this process when you feel the paint no longer has that shine or deep finish.

I would probably wax the car every 1-2 months.

Just make sure you carefully wash the car to maintain the finish and avoid putting small swirls/light scratches on it.

Have a grit guard in the bucket /make sure your mitts are clean etc.

I'm about to place an order for some adam's wash, drying weave and microfiber detergent. I guess the question is how do I know when to crack the menzerna items back open, and then it probably wouldn't even be necessary to even go back all the way to IP I'd assume.

So for now I should just do a good wash regularly and before reapplying Glanz should I clay.

And no I didn't get any good pictures unforunately However it still looks amazing right now.

good washes, and its only necessary to clay the car again if it feels rough.

you can always spot clay the areas that need it like the bumpers etc ...

yes you probably only need the 106fa from now on to maintain the car.
