    I'm 16 and I really love cleaning my car and making it stand out. I normally just wash my car and clean my rims and nothing more. I want to start waxing my car normally and quick detailing it and all that good stuff just like most of you guys do. I don't have or plan on getting a PC so keep that in mind. I would like to know if this would be a good kit for someone like me. I don't plan on making a professional shine or pursuing a job in detailing I just want to detail my car and some of my friends. These are the 2 kits I'm interested in http://www.autopia-carcare.com/son-pershine-kit.html or http://www.zainostore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ZKIT-2

    I kind of like the Sonus one better because it already has all the aplicators and clothes. I was also just thinking about going to Walmart with the $150 I plan on spending and just buying a bunch of Meguiars stuff. Help me out guys I'm NEW :)
    Heres a couple pictures of my car after a buddy waxed it

    Of those two options, I'd go with the Sonus kit. Another option would be Optimum Polish, Clearkote's Vanilla Moose and either Carnauba Moose or Poorboy's EX-P and some microfiber towels from www.exceldetail.com

    I am sure if you contact Patrick at excel, he can put together a nice package for you that will do an excellent job for you.

    I would add in a glaze to follow SSR2. Not mandatory but it will add some depth and wetness. Since you will be using 4* UPP, I'd use Four Star Ultimate Paint Cleaner after SSR2 and before UPP. Then maintain every few weeks after washing with the spray version.

    I think you will be very pleased with the look and stunned by the slickness.

    Talked to the parentals tonight they said they'll pick it up for Christmas.. Can't wait.. I think I'm going to take your and get the 4 Star Ultimate Paint Cleaner and probably some Vanilla Moose because it seems every thread I open it's in there :). I also found out my step dad has an old buffer, Meguiars Swirl Remover, and a old Meguiars wax sitting in the garage. I think I'm going to find a old fender and try my hand with the buffer this weekend. Wish me luck!

    you need to work on those faded, opaque plastic headlamps...those really degrade the look your your car.
