    As most of you know, I'm a mobile detailer so I get lots of vehicles to try products out on. I've mainly worked with Meguiar's due to the ease of use and it's well known. I recently ordered the 900-1-Car Kare Kit and have just finish using each product at least 5 times.
    Here's my review of each...

    118SC Car Wash
    Works awesome.
    Not a high-sudsing formula but it's cleaning ability is amazing. Very,very concentrated making it a value point for me. Works well on brake dust and bugs.

    121 Ultimate Cleaner
    This is one versitile product.
    It's concentrated formula gives it multi-tasks properties.
    10:1 is good for everyday cleaning like plastic and vinyl and cloth interiors. I even used it on leather. 4:1 really cleaned tires well. Has pleasant scent and bacteria killing attributes.

    303 Glaze
    This one stumped me at first.
    "A glaze with cut?"
    Yep....sure is. Does well at removing and filling light to moderate imperfections. One note though; a little goes a long way.

    2180 Ultra Seal
    I used this on my personal work truck 3 months ago. Still beading....tightly. Very easy to apply and remove and once again, a little goes long way.
    Will stain a white pad though. Highly durable and give decent shine.

    108 Top Kote
    I also use this on my truck. The anti-static statements made are true. Dust is repeled well. Works well on leather, vinyl, and plastic. Give a nice new look to tires...not glossy but new. Doesn't take much either. Has a neutral scent. Make sure you clean the surface before use to remove all other chemical used before.

    425 Ultra Slick Poly Wipe Spray Detailer
    Work wonderfull between washes. Not really a cleaning Quick Detailer. This is one you want to use after a wash. Give that just waxed slickness to the paint. Has anti-static properties that DO work. I can see it's affect on glass as well. Aweson on LCD and regular television screens.

    2685 Pink Wax
    A little harder to remove than others and smell chemically but well worth the results!
    Goes on so smoother with a foam applicator. Glides on. You only need a little once your pad is primed. I've only put this wax on by hand. You may want to buff off with a PC and bonnet. Give lots of depth and glow. Metallics pop. Used it on my wife's van and got 3 months durability this summer in GA.

    I will using this product line up exclusively in business. Value and performance helped my make this decision.

    Future products to use and review are:
    1119
    Soil & Coating Remover / Wax & Detail Pre-Cleaner

    221-D
    Ultimate Wheel Cleaner / Degreaser

    1016
    Poly-Wash & Wax Concentrate - Anti-Static

    215
    Ultra All-In-One - Cleaner • Polish • Sealant

    I've used Pink Wax, very nice product, great durability. I love Meguiars #16 so much though, that will be my go to paste wax until I run out-which considering I have 3 unopened tins along with one that is about 70% full, will probably be a while. I'd probably be using Pink Wax if I didn't have access to #16 though.

    ...and no, none of my #16 stash is for sale or trade. :squint:

    I definitely want to try more of the FK line though, I hear nothing but good things about their products. :)

    Yeah pink wax is very nice. Goes on easy and I'm sure with time I will learn how to remove it better.
    If you order the sample pack, call them. You can get sample of other products to try. Very good customer service.
    Did I mention that they have a 4.99 flat rate shipping cost?
    That means alot to me. I spent 50.00 in just shipping last month!
