Detailed Image Recommendations:

  • Essence Plus – A SEMA Show 2016 release that has everyone excited. If your detailer is using any coatings on their vehicle, this product will help remove any imperfections in the coating and extend the protection properties of that coating layer. If you have your eye on a new and exciting item for them to try, the Essence Plus is a great choice!
  • Nextzett Cockpit Premium – Cockpit Premium is fantastic at cleaning and protecting your interior dash, nav screen, shift knobs, and so much more. It is versatile and will help anyone clean up their interior with ease.
  • Microfiber Towels – As a detailer, you can never have too many microfiber towels laying around and we have so many for you to choose from.
  • Scangrip Lights – As detailers we are always frustrated with lights that do not work great, or frankly do not last long at all. Scangrip lights perform great in both of these categories and will make any detailer extremely happy.
  • Under Armour Detailer Shirt & Hoodie – Simply put, this shirt screams DETAILER and it is the perfect gift for that car care enthusiast in your life. Both the hoodie and shirt are also made by Under Armour, so you can not go wrong in the quality department!
  • 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner Wipes – Now you can wipe the popular 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner onto your fabrics, vinyl, plastic, rubber and more with ease! This is also a SEMA Show 2016 release, so it fits that new and exciting category.
  • Griot’s Garage 6″ Polisher or THE BOSS – If the detailer in your life is looking to take their detailing to the next level, these two units from Griot’s are amazing gifts. The 6″ Polisher is one we recommend to most enthusiasts and THE BOSS, comes at a greater price point, so it is the one we recommend if you are looking for the best of the best, or have a professional detailer in your family to wow!
  • Lake Country Microfiber Pads – As detailers, we love us some great microfiber pads. Other companies have either discontinued some pad sizes, or have had some durability issues with their pads. Lake Country set out to right these two wrongs and we are excited to have a full line of quality microfiber pads to choose from.
  • 22ple HPC High Performance Coating – Coatings have quickly become all the rage in the detailing industry and rightfully so. If you want to wow your detailer with a high quality coating, the 22ple HPC is hard to beat.

  • PFM Drying Towel – Because it’s pure fricking magic! Seriously the best drying towel I’ve used.
  • CarPro Essence – Easy to use, produces amazing gloss. I like it for just maintaining my neglected vehicle and topping it with something simple like Opti-Seal.
