    Im wanting to keep my car looking very good this summer. I have been useing the Mr. Clean jet dry on the outside seems to work pretty good for a car wash. And on the inside and under the hood is where I need some help. What products make for good investments for like cleaning the plastic/leather and the seats in my car? I don't know if you are famillier with the seats in the Evo's but if you are you know what kinda material it is its kinda weird. I think its swade maybe im not sure. But its soft and I dont know what kinda chemicls would hurt it.

    What brand of products are good to use for the inside and under the hood to keep it shinny?

    Is it possible to find these type of products at walmart and autozone?


    And on a side note How might you go about getting small scratchs out of a black car and reduse your "swirl marks" when you wash it.

    Most of what you need is in the product list sticky.

    I'd order some Optimum No Rinse Wash. Wash a section and dry it immediately. Very fast way to wash your car. Contains polymers so it improves slickness and shine. I believe www.exceldetail.com is now carrying it. One gallon = 128 washes!

    Meguiars and Mothers are you best bet for consumer level waxes.
