Returning addict SoCal

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

 

One question - For Car 1, should I also use the paint sealer 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!

Welcome (Back), Matt!  Looks like a solid Mystery Bucket Score!  If you want, don't forget to post it to the Official Mystery Bucket Thread.  You can find it here:  


And don't forget to post pics of your rides when you get them shined up!  I have an '06 4Runner, still running strong up here in Chicago, where our weather is very similar to what you described as your weather...  Well except for the temperature...  Wind chill... Humidity...  Ummm...  The sun came out for the first time in three weeks the other day!...  lol

As for answering your question, I'll defer to the experts.  @falcaineer...  Thoughts???

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).
