  1. Thank you for the response. I used Paint Sealant and H2G&G on my wife’s car and really liked the result. The CSC came in the mystery bucket yesterday, first world problems.
  2. I bought a new Toyota 4Runner and I’m wondering if Toyota or the dealer apply any paint sealant. Is that a normal procedure at the factory or at the lot? I did not pay for any extra paint protection package. The car was detailed for the showroom, but I’m guessing that is just a wash and possibly a wax. I have Paint Sealant and the Ceramic Spray Coating, I’ll have to choose one to apply if the paint is unprotected.
  3. Question regarding buttery wax and paint sealer (detail about cars/plan below) - Should I also use the paint sealer for car 1 and then use Carnuba (buttery wax + Spray Wax) on top? The products that work together are slightly confusing on the website, and the carnuba products seem to be going out of style replaced by HGG & Ceramics. I have a bunch of carnuba to get through before I can consider a ceramic regimen! Mystery bucket unloaded and added to the collection. After a ton of research on the website and Youtube videos, I think I have a detailing strategy for my two cars. Took advantage of BOGO's to get the rest of what I needed. (Not shown: Buttery Wax, HGG, VRT, Paint Sealant) Both cars parked outside in Southern California beach town. Temp never gets above ~75 and it rarely rains. Car 1 - 2020 White 4Runner (Carnuba based plan since I enjoy detailing this car) *Buttery Wax base every 3 months *Spray Wax as a drying agent once per month to refresh wax *Car Shampoo + Detail Spray weekly Car 2 - 2012 White Edge (200k+ miles) *Paint Sealer base 2x per year *HGG as a drying agent once per month *Car Shampoo + Detail Spray bi-weekly (I don't spend as much time cleaning wife's commuter) Interior shine + VRT + Tire & Wheel cleaner for interior and trim.
  4. Nice ride and great job on the detail.
  5. Thanks BfromORD! My company office is in Chicago in the Central Loop, I'm just lucky enough to work remote! I chose 1 mile from the beach in a California town with no traffic (for now).

  7. Mystery bucket arrives today! Then bogos of whatever I don’t end up getting... 🤔
  8. Back in 2010 I bought an Adams detailing kit for my new 2011 Camaro, Loved detailing my car. Flash forward 10 years, 3 cars and 3 cross country moves. I held on to my Adams and one whiff of the detail spray and I’m hooked again. I’ve been restocking and enjoying detail my 2020 4Runner. Bought a mystery bucket and looking forward to trying new stuff!
