Our gift guide for the 2022 season has arrived!

SEMA Releases

We were not able to attend the show this year, but that did not stop us from working with manufacturers to provide you with as much information about new and exciting releases that we could. Check out our SEMA Show 2022 Wrap Up for a summary of our coverage to learn about the Griot’s Garage THE BOSS Hybrid Micro Polisher, Rupes iBrid Mini HLR75 Polisher, 303 Spray and Rinse Ceramic Sealant, Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Tire Shine, Oberk Rinseless Wash, and more.

SEMA Releases

Rupes UNO Protect One Step Polish & Sealant

With the Rupes UNO Protect One Step Polish & Sealant you will be able to polish and protect in one easy to use product. The specialized blend of abrasives, combined with high-quality synthetic sealant and carnauba wax allows UNO to quickly remove surface imperfections, swirls, and oxidation, while leaving behind a durable layer of protection. Combine detailing steps and save valuable time during the process!

Grit Guard Insert

It feels like the Grit Guard Insert has been around since the start of detailing! This simple, yet effective tool can be placed in the bottom of various buckets to help trap dirt and grime at the bottom of the bucket. This not only keeps your wash media cleaner, but greatly reduces your risk of implementing swirls and scratches during the wash process.

Griot’s Garage G9 Random Orbital Polisher

There are many polishers on the market and many range from very affordable to expensive. The beautiful thing about the G9 is that it has many features of a more expensive unit, but it comes in at an incredible value. This polisher is the perfect upgrade for the weekend warrior and addition to a professional detailers polisher collection.

Jonathan Monson

Buying me a single product is like giving me more work to do. I have to test that product and compare it to others.

I’d much rather have a polisher kit, tools, microfiber towels and things that don’t require testing. Things like the seatbelt brush, Blo Air S, pump sprayers, inspection lights, Fur-eels, Tornadors etc.

Don’t buy me a product unless I’ve told you what product, but you can buy me tools and detail trinkets all day long!

CarPro Hydro2

Hydro2 is a great sealant that’s very easy to use, convenient and lasts a long time considering the quick application. It’s great for paint when you have a garage, but using it regularly on wheels is a great way to keep them clean and protected

Metro Vacuums Master Blaster Car Dryer

Metro Vacuums Master Blaster Car Dryer

One of the best tools you can have in order to keep paint swirl free. The less you touch paint the better, so blowers help a ton in this situation. If it’s within your budget, the Master Blaster is the way to go as it’s very powerful and will last a long time. The regular Blaser and even sidekick are great options as well.

DI Brushes Boar's Hair Detailing Brush

DI Brushes Boar’s Hair Detailing Brush

It’s a great tool that can be used on both interiors and exteriors and is soft enough to not scratch any surface. I suggest using separate brushes for interiors, exterior paint and wheels, but if you clean it thoroughly and properly one can do everything.
