2019 AAP Detailing Awards

by

This is the first-ever AAP Detailing Awards for 2019! These products stand above the rest and are well deserving of their awards. We went through several products, heated debates, and finally landed on the winners. Enjoy!

Most Surprising

This award is for the product or tool that surprised me the most. The one that exceeded expectations and really made me say wow.

WINNER – CarPro Hydr02 Lite

CarPro-HydrO2-Lite-1000-ml_1324_1_m_2346

It’s been out for a while but I was so skeptical due to how easy it was. Spray-on, hose off, and 3-4 month protection? It seemed to good to be true. But let me tell you it is so much more. not only is it easy to use, but the application of it also makes it super easy to windows and wheels as well! The finish it gives is INSANELY slick and I could not recommend it more.

Best Bang-for-the-Buck

This is for the product/tool that is the best value for the price.

WINNER – Meguiar’s D120 Glass Cleaner

Meguiars-Glass-Cleaner-Concentrate-D120-128-oz_445_1_m_5296

At $20 for 11 GALLONS when diluted, this stuff goes a looong way. And of course is an amazing glass cleaner.

Best Newcomer

This is for the best product/tool that was new to the site in 2019

WINNER – RZ Mask M2

RZ-Mask-M2-Mesh-Reusable-DustPollution-Black-Mask-Medium_2024_1_m_2497

I never wanted to wear a mask before, even though you should for heath reasons, because they were bulky and got hot and looked ridiculous. This mask is light, breathable and makes you look like Subzero from Mortal Kombat, which has always been my dream.

Most Versatile

This is for the product/tool that can be used for multiple use cases.

WINNER – Optimum ONR

Optimum-No-Rinse-Wash-Shine-ONR-32-oz_444_1_m_5261

Waterless wash, interior cleaner, pad conditioner, clay lube, beard conditioner, sock deodorizer, leather, the list goes on and on. ONR is just a really good cleaner that is very safe and just a touch of protection to work just so well on so many surfaces.

Best Starter

This is the best product/tool for someone starting out with detailing.

WINNER – DI Clay Bar

DI-Accessories-Fine-Grade-Clay-200-g_347_1_m_3413

Simple tool, amazing results. If you just wash your car, using a clay bar really opens your eyes to what detailing can really do. The first time I clayed my hand-me-down 2003 Jetta it went from a green hue to a grey hue. It was gross, and my love for detailing really took off from there.

Best Professional

This is the best product/tool for a professional to add to their arsenal.

WINNER – Scangrip Sunmatch 3

Scangrip-Sunmatch-3_1887_1_m_8663

The form factor of a handheld is perfect to check your work easily, from scratches to coating high spots, you can see it all at every angle. It also has 5 color temperate settings to get the perfect view on any color vehicle.
