    well you will need some thing mate your cart say's empty !



    but i would buy a rotary all day over a DA but that's just me as found the DA only good for a polish./.not paint correction so really both are needed if you were to start out doing other people's car's.

    and this place is good to get some good infor from

              full list / process here bud. . .some may do it differently but this is the way I do it for a full detail.

              Snowfoam using powerwash and snowfoam lance: valet pro ph neutral snowfoam. This doesn't strip the wax when just doing a 'maintenance' wash.

              rinse

              Wash two bucket method: Better to use buckets with grit guards. I use a lambswool wash mitt though some prefer the microfiber ones or zymol sponge.

              rinse

              Clay (if needed): sonus ultrafine clay

              wash again or a good rinse

              Dry: chemical guys miracle dryer is the one I use or just any decent drying towel.

              paint correction would be done at this point. . .

              if not then dodo juice lime prime to cleanse the paint either via hand or machine then buffed off using a microfiber (best to have lots of these) ready for a wax to be applied (I use a wax rather than a sealant).

              Finally wax or seal which ever you prefer: dodo juice purple haze pro applied using meguirs gold class applicator pads and then left to cure for half hour before buffing. Re-buff after an hour if required

              Hope thats helped a little. . . Other bits you'll need

              wheel cleaner - bilberry
              brushes - sell these on chemical guys and which ever tickles your fancy
              megs apc is also useful for general purpose cleaning
              glass cleaner / polish -
              tyre dressing - meguirs endurance tyre dressing is my fave as it lasts and gives the tyres a wet look
              chem guys jet seal: great on body work and to seal the wheels to make them easier to clean in the future
              quick detailer - some hate these some love them, I use chem guys pro detailer (smells like bubblegum ) this one specifically to top up the wax on a maintenance wash

                    Mate your link for the shopping cart wont work for anyone as it uses cookies to store the data for when you order iirc? Something like that anyway.

                    best thing to do is either list it or printscreen and upload what you was going to buy and then people can help with opinions if its any good.

                    Defo go with bilberry for the wheel cleaner by far the best i've ever used and lasts quite well too.
                    Megs tyre endurance is good too just make sure you apply it well(i usually just apply with a sponge)
