    Im starting to detail for a little cash and i figured it would be best to start with friends cars etc to practice. Heres one i did using:

    -simple green wash
    -meguiars clay bar
    -autoglym resin polish

    i need to find a glossier sealant, any tips?

    STOP WASHING WITH SIMPLE GREEN!!!!!

    Use car wash soap only. No dish soap, no laundry soap and no Simple Green.

    What you probably need to do it polish your paint more deeply than a 1 step product like Autoglym can do. It is a decent product but it is meant for paint that only needs very light cleaning.

    its not straight simple green.. its a simple green concentrated car wash formula.. not nearly as strong as simple green. feels like car wash soap with a little kick. anything wrong with this? i use it all the time.

    All sorts of polishes recommended in the EDU.

    Never even seen that Simple Green product before, however, I'd stick with a car wash made by companies known for car care specific products, like Meguiars, Mothers, etc.
