    Looking for a quick detail spray as of right now! I'll probably order some of the poorboy stuff (seems to be real good from what I've read on OT) but I went to Kragen and bough a bottle of this stuff and wanted to know if it was any good. I know it says Meguiars but don't know if this is their crappy cheap entry line stuff especially since I bought it at Kragen.

    Thanks.

    That stuff seems to work fine for me when I get it with the Meguiar's Claybar Kit... But I absolutely dispise that nozzle...

    but others rave about it :dunno:

    Ballast -- thanks, wanted to make sure it was of decent quality before I tried using it.

    It works fine.

    My favorite QD though is Clearkote's Quikshine. PB's Spray and Gloss is really good too but QS will darken the paint a bit more and is a little slicker.

    Do you happen to know if QS has any UV Protective properties to it? I also have a red car that is fading just a bit and I want to do all that I can to help slow that process.

    Regular polishing and waxing is the only thing that will work. You at least need to use a light glaze like Vanilla Moose or Klasse AIO every time you wax...which should be very 3 months or so.
