I'll have to get back to you. My wife is out shopping and I have no idea how she does it.
I do know that she buys all the stuff from Martin.

No, massages only. Mani and pedis require an appointment.

That's my quick wash routine. The long wash (really more of a full detail can take upwards of about 8-10 hours) Full wash, full clay bar, polish, multiple wax coats... and that's before the Qtips make an appearance on the full interior detail.

Um, not sure if sarcastic...

Anyway, check out the subforum. It's got way more info than you probably need, but good info either way.

Whatever you do, don't take it through an automatic car wash if you care about the paint at all. If you don't care, then do whatever you want.

And +1 for Auto Finesse supplies!

Chances are for $15 they will do a lot more harm than good! Trust me on that!
