All The Detailing Essentials is a complete detailing kit that gives you all the most necessary products to complete a show car worthy detail. Don’t just get pieces of a detail when you can have everything you need for a thorough detail. Removing contaminants from the exterior is the first step which can be done with the Chemical Guys Maxi Suds II and the Sheepskin Wash Mitt. Fill two buckets two-thirds full with water and put the Grit Guard in one and pour shampoo in the other. Add more water to the shampoo and water mix to create a rich lather of suds. Soak the Sheepskin Wash Mitt in the shampoo mix and wash the vehicle from top down. After every 1 – 2 panels you should dunk the Sheepskin Wash Mitt in the Grit Guard bucket. Lightly wipe the mitt against the Grit Guard to help release contaminants and then continue washing. Do your best to preserve the mitts so they remain clean and safe to use on the paint. After you’re done thoroughly rinse the paint from the top down and move the vehicle in to a shaded area if it’s not already. Then use the Microfiber Waffle Weave Drying Towels to thoroughly dry the paint.  These towels are extra large, super absorbent, paint safe and washable!

The paint may look totally clean now but many contaminants remain bonded to the clear coat or stuck in the micro-ridges of the clear coat. Much like your skin there are tons of microscopic pores in the clear coat where contaminants become embedded. By removing these contaminants you’ll help the polish, sealant and wax do their jobs better. A clay bar will help remove these contaminants, leaving your paint much smoother and optically clear. Simply spray the clay lube, Poorboy’s World Spray & Wipe, over a small area (2ft x 2ft). Then gently glide the bar side to side and it will pick up contamination. Wipe the area clean with an All Purpose Microfiber Towel, then re-mold the clay and repeat the process on a new area. When you’re all done you won’t believe how much contamination you removed and how smooth your paint feels. Now the paint looks better and is perfectly ready to be polished.

Polishing your paint is the process by which you work in tiny particles that permanently removes swirls and other fine imperfections. Swirls cause light to fragment when it passes through the clear coat, which diminishes your paint’s ability to show it’s true shine. By removing those imperfections you allow the light to pass directly through the paint and thus a deep shine. The Porter Cable 7424 is a major asset in this process because of its ability to effectively work in the polish. Polishes need lots of heat and pressure to break down and work in to the clear coat properly. Generating an equivalent amount of pressure by hand is nearly impossible over an entire detail. To begin using the buffer you should first replace the 5” counterweight weight with the 6” counterweight, to help reduce vibration. Then screw in the 6” backing plate so you can attach the Lake Country Orange Light Cutting Pad. Apply several small drops of the Menzerna Intensive Polish to the outside edge of the pad and then smear the pad over a small area (no more than 2ft x 2ft) with the buffer off. Turn the buffer on and work it up to speed 6. Move the buffer slowly up and down and then side to side over your allocated area. Remove the excess product with a clean All Purpose Microfiber Towel and repeat the process on the rest of the vehicle. It will likely take 2 – 4 All Purpose Microfiber Towels to thoroughly remove all of the product. After you are done repeat the same process with a White Polishing Pad and the Menzerna Final Polish II. This combination of polishes will make the clear coat a light more vibrant and shinny. You only need to polish the paint 1 – 2 times per year, so these steps are not generally included in your normal maintenance routine.

Having smooth and clean paint will allow the sealant to adhere to the paint much better so you get longer lasting protection! Attach your Blue Fine Finishing Pad and apply a tiny amount of the Chemical Guys M-Seal. With the M-Seal you’ll use less product than you would with the polishes, approximately 1 oz per coat. This sealant leaves an acrylic layer of protection that will protect your paint for about 3 – 6 months depending on conditions. The paint will look highly reflective and sharp after completing this step. We recommend waiting at least 12 – 24 hours before applying another coat to ensure the sealant properly cross links and bonds to your paint, giving you optimal durability. To increase the protection and really enhance the depth and gloss of the paint use the Poorboy’s World Natty’s Blue Paste Wax. Wipe your Microfiber Hand Applicator Pad in the jar in a circular motion to gather a light coating of wax on the applicator. Apply the product by hand to your paint and hand remove the left over wax with a clean All Purpose Microfiber Towel. You will be amazed at how much deeper you paint looks with one coat of this wax. Additionally you’ll add more protection which will help preserve the underlying coat of sealant. Step back when you’re done and take a look at your stunning paint!

Clean your wheels with the pH neutral Chemical Guys Wheel and Rim Citrus Cleaner.  This solution is safe on ALL wheels and helps gently separate contaminants from your wheel without using harsh acidic formulas. The gel formula clings to horizontal and vertical surfaces where pure liquids often run down quickly. This helps the formula stay in contact with more parts of the wheel and loosen more contaminates. You can agitate more difficult build ups with the Lake Country Blue Grout Sponge.  If deep stains still remain like oxidation, embedded brake dust, rust, etc. use the P21S Finish Restorer and the All Purpose Microfiber Towel. Apply a small drop of the polish to the towel and buff the contaminated area. Then remove the remaining residue with a clean part of the towel. You’ll restore an amazing glow to any metal or clear coated surface. Do not use this metal polish on painted, hard cast aluminum or anodized surfaces. You can also use this polish in the engine bay, exhaust tips, trim, around the home, etc. After the wheels are thoroughly cleaned and polished you should apply the Poorboy’s World Bold n Bright to the Tire Dressing Applicator. Wipe on the dressing and you’ll instantly notice a bold new finish to your tires. The Bold n Bright is a water based dressing that can actually be absorbed in to the leather to nourish it so it remains flexible yet strong.

Cleaning the glass can be challenging but we’ve provided you all the tools to make the job a lot easier. For your exterior glass you will want to use the Glass Science Glass Scrub when you are washing your vehicle. Wet the glass and apply a nickel sized drop of Glass Scrub on your Foam Applicator Pad. Buff the product on your exterior glass with medium pressure and rinse the glass thoroughly when done. This process deep cleans the micro-pores of your glass so you can see what truly clean glass looks like. After you have dried the exterior glass you can seal it with the Rain Clear Gel. Apply a small drop on a Microfiber Applicator Pad and buff it on the glass in a circular motion. Remove the excess product with a clean All Purpose Microfiber Towel. The Rain Clear Gel helps seal the micro-pores in your glass and force moisture to bead up tightly. Moisture will roll of the glass and you’ll have improved vision while driving in any condition. For the interior glass start off with the Chemical Guys Window Clean, 2x All Purpose Microfiber Towels and 1x Glass Microfiber Towel. The Window Clean is completely safe on tinted windows. Spray a light mist of it on an All Purpose Microfiber Towel and wipe the glass until it’s clean. Follow up this application with a slightly damp microfiber towel and wipe the windows you just cleaned to remove any remaining residue. Lastly, you wipe down the glass with the Glass Microfiber Towel to ensure you have absolutely streak free glass. The low nap and special materials used in this towel make flush contact with the glass and let no streaks escape. Use this same process on the exterior glass if you don’t want to use the Glass Scrub in the beginning of your routine.

The interior of your vehicle can seem complicated but after you have just cleaned the glass we can clean and protect most of the rest of the interior with just three products. Clean your carpets, dashboard, console, doors, armrests and more with the 303 Cleaner and Spot Remover. 1 – 2 sprays on an All Purpose Microfiber Towel will give you enough cleaning solution to wipe down those surfaces and safely remove dust, stains, etc. Apply more product as needed, but try not to saturate the towel. Follow up this application by spraying 1 – 2 sprays of the 303 Aerospace Protectant on a clean All Purpose Microfiber Towel. Then wipe down any vinyl, rubber, leather or plastic surface. You’ll add a nice bold finish with UV protection, without the greasy or oily feeling. The Poorboy’s World Leather Stuff will help you clean your leather or leatherette (synthetic and coated leather) seats. Leather Stuff helps clean, condition and protect your leather all in one step. Apply a nickel sized drop of Leather Stuff to a clean Microfiber Applicator Pad and buff it in to your seats. Use more product as needed and let the product sit for at least fifteen minutes before removal. Some contaminates will rise to the surface so it’s important to wipe down the seats with a clean All Purpose Microfiber Towel. To add more protection to the seats you can also wipe them down with the 303 Aerospace Protectant when you are done with the Leather Stuff.

To clean your engine bay you will use all of the same products you just used throughout other steps in the detailing process. Detailing the engine bay can seem overwhelming but really the process is quite simple and easy. Most engine details only take about 30 – 50 minutes. Assuming the engine is cold run the engine for about 1 – 2 minutes to warm it up a little bit. If the vehicle is hot from a recent drive you should wait until it is warm before starting. Cover air filters, intakes and electrical connections with saran wrap or tin foil and mist water over the bay. Spray the 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover all over the engine bay and let it soak for about 1 – 2 minutes. Avoid spraying hard cast aluminum and mechanical parts like fans and belts. Agitate stubborn build-ups with an old rag until clean. Rinse the bay down upon completion and remove the tin foil or saran wrap. Dry the engine bay with a rag as well and apply a drop of the P21S Finish Restorer to your Two Sided Microfiber Polishing Towel. Buff any metals to a high shine so they look like new again. The last step is to apply the 303 Aerospace Protectant to an All Purpose Microfiber Towel. Wipe down all the non-mechanical rubber, vinyl and plastic surfaces. You’ll instantly notice the rich shine and bold appearance. The engine bay will stay cleaner with this application and make future cleanings much easier.

You can step back now and admire a beautiful engine bay and completed detail. This whole process will help transform your vehicle so it looks better than new. Upon completion you will feel extremely proud at what you have accomplished through this detail. You will also have learned about your vehicle and how to properly care for it. This is a very rewarding process that will help you take your detailing to the next level. Don’t delay, get the “All The Detailing Essentials Kit” today at a special complete package price!
