Top 10 gift ideas for detailing enthusiasts!


Yesterday I posted up a suggested gift list for detailers, so I figured that I should also represent the weekend warrior detailing enthusiasts as well. For those of you that have been reading up about the various products and processes and want to take your skills (and arsenal) to the next level, I have included some great foundation products and tools for you here. So be sure to pass this link on to your family and friends that may have you on their gift exchange list, and be sure to circle your favorites (think back to when we were kids looking through the toy catalogs and flyers).┬á ­čÖé

Gift ideas for detailing enthusiasts:

DI Accessories reTHICKulous Wool Wash Mitt. Proper detailing revolves around a solid wash and dry system / tools, and this wash mitt is as plush and soft as you can get.

Brinkmann Maxfire Dual Xenon Swirl Finder Spotlight. This is also on the list for detailers, but it’s equally as important to the enthusiast. Be careful though, because once you use this to see the true condition of your paint, you’ll quickly turn the hobby of detailing into a full-blown addiction!

Meguiar’s Microfiber D/A Correction System. This is the system that bridged the gap between the general detailing enthusiast to the professional detailer! Very effective, and easy to learn / use. A D/A polisher is required to use this system, but not included in the kit.

Porter Cable 7424XP D/A Polisher. Making the jump from hand-polishing to machine polishing is huge in terms of the amount of correction and gloss you can achieve in the finish, and the Porter Cable D/A polisher makes it easy and safe. If you wish to take your hobby to the next level, this tool is a must-have!

Dodo Juice Home Brew Wax Kit. What an innovative idea…provide all of the ingredients and instructions, and let the end user make his/her own car wax! This adds a bit of a fun-factor to the whole “car wax for Christmas” concept (think of the Dad in the movie A Christmas Story: “A can of Simonize”).

DI┬áMicrofiber Great White Towels. All microfiber isn’t created equal, and if you’re not using a high quality material, then you’re scratching your delicate paint! A handful of these plush towels would make great stocking stuffers.

Tuf Shine Tire Appearance Kit. A whole new concept in tire appearance care and maintenance, this Tuf Shine kit has everything you need to create and maintain a long lasting finish on your tires.

DI Brushes Lambs Wool Premium Wheel Brush. Cleaning the inner barrels of your wheels doesn’t get any easier than with this plush wheel brush. It’s the best wheel brush by far that I’ve ever used!

Einszett 1Z Cockpit Premium. One of the most versatile interior cleaners on the market…cleans plastic, vinyl, leather, gages, and all other hard surfaces inside the car and leaves a clean finish without adding gloss or a slick feeling.

Stoner’s Glass Cleaning Kit. Especially when you have a steeply slanted windshield or rear window, the Stoner’s window cleaning tool makes the process much easier and more effective. This kit includes the tool, extra microfiber pads, and glass cleaning solution.

Enjoy the holidays, and Happy Detailing!

  1. Great recommendations Todd! Any car enthusiast would love to receive something from this list.

  2. Tim says:

    I second the Einszett 1Z Cockpit Premium. I got this a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. This is great for worn down navigation or in car dvd screens. It smells great and is extremely easy to apply. This is one of my must have products now.

  3. Mike Williamson says:

    Todd, that is a great list. Thanks for taking time to write that up. I printed a copy of it and left it laying in a very visual area in the kitchen, in hopes that Mrs. Santa will see it and respond accordingly.

  4. Hamza says:
