Has anyone ever watched any of the videos the drive channel puts out on car detailing? good videos overall but if i feel there is content missing sometimes. for reference heres a basic wash video they put out and they recently just put out a paint correction video:

Informative, I like how he uses the foam gun to wash with the wash mitt, never seen that before.

On a side note, are there more videos on youtube by this guy?

I think the point is not to give every little detail away as that is why people bring their cars to detailers or paint correction specialists. Gives enough to catch peoples interest while still educating but also realizing they will need someone considered an "artist" to to the proper job.

Has anyone ever used the AMMO brand products? I am skeptical but would like to know how they compare to other top brands.

I'm interested as well, I can't seem to find any write ups or reviews on the interwebz. The product bottles make me think it's left over axe body spray they couldn't sell.
