Right now I'm using "Invisible Glass" which so far seems to be the cream of the crop. I've tried zaino's glass polish and although it leaves the windows looking awesome it also creates a ton of dust. I'm pretty well set on polish for a while but after my existing supplies are out I'm not against trying yours. I've used just about everything on the market at one time or another. The windows, tires, and dash are the things I keep trying different stuff on over and over. Those are the things I'll be ordering from you to see what kind of luck I have with yours.
    I switch it up between two products for glass on my own vehicles. I do use invisible glass, but I also use Spray n Wipe. I think one of the bigger differences that I noticed was when I started using a microfiber glass towel. I think they are an important key in glass cleaning. I use the blue 16x12 ones on my site.
    For dash, its tough to beat 303. I have the 16oz aerospace protectant on the site. Other options would be poorboys natural look which has a nice cherry scent or the optimum protectant plus, which was just reformulated and I must say, I do like it much more now.
    Tires; 303 aerospace, bold n bright and the new optimum tire shine all work very well on tires imo.

    Yes, I have used Menzerna. Very nice product.. theres no doubt about it. However, the price really kills it for me. I can get awesome results w/ less expensive products, so paying 40-50 per container gets expensive quickly and I just cant justify the added expense w/o passing it along to the customer. Like I said though, it is a great product.

    fwiw, heres a bmw I did and what I used.
    prespray w/ an APC mixture
    wash w/ super slick n suds
    clay w/ fine grade clay
    rewash w/ ss&s
    Optimum Compound on Orange pad
    Optimum polish on white pad
    then finished w/ collinite 476s

    nice to see that even the high dollar cars have orange peel. I'm gonna spend some time on my car this year. In years past I spent more time washing it than driving it, last year I think I washed it twice. Time to get back to a shiny black car again.

    yeah, I've detailed my buddies with him a few times. His is silver though so it hides it a little better than a dark color.

    orange peel doesnt bother me as much when its on the lower panels-which seems to be the case on alot of cars. Wow- I just looked at the fender on that BMW seems like alot.

    I just received my detailing kit and some other goodies from Glimmer-Glass that I ordered the other day. Took advantage of the LS1.COM member DISCOUNT too. Everything arrived fast and was packaged properly. With the weather raining or snowing every other day lately I have plenty of garage time to do some clean up work. Oh yeah Chris, thanks for the pen too!
