The basics for 2011

Hey folks,

I'm looking for recommendations for the basics: wash, clay&detail spray, polish, and sealant. It's been a few years since I got my first set of chemicals (griot's[wash,clay,speedshine,fine polish], CG[JetSeal109, CG 50/50]). But after looking through the boards, it looks like there are some new products (e.g., Menzerna, Blackfire). Any recommendations on changing the above setup? Thanks tons.

IMHO what you have sounds fine. You may want to get some of the newer polishes, you didn't list what you use. Also d/a polishers have improved with the flex and updated porter cable. Depending what you are using now they may be worth taking a look at.

BFWD topped with 50/50 would be a good combo after a wash clay polish session with menzerna polishes...

Thanks for the responses. I was using Griot's Fine Hand Polish as the polish, but honestly I never used it much unless there was a particular area that had more apparent scratching (car is SSII).
