I use the Gilmour Foamaster II. It does an acceptable job, but no where near the foam levels of the higher end foam guns. For just a detailing enthusiast as myself, it more than suffices.

Griot's Garage DA 6" Buffer. This buffer is perfect for a beginner all the way to the pros! It's that easy to use, yet even more effective. I think the biggest thing though is using good pads, keeping them clean, and using solid technique.

I haven't tried Power Seal just yet since I still have quite a bit of Tough Coat left. Seeing some of the reviews on various forums, Power Seal seems to be one of the longer lasting routes for paint protection. I may give it a shot before the winter snow storms hit. As for now though, I am more than happy using Tough Coat and topping it off with either Spirit or Desire.
