Let's see your detailing supplies!

I know we had a similar thread in the past, but let's see your detailing supplies.

I'll start..

Not pictured are my microfiber towels and wash buckets/tools.

Don't have a current one as it's just finally getting warm enough out there for a full detail! Here's what I used last time... big Meguiars fan as you can see! I can't wait to use up this bottle of NXT to see what their new Ultimate stuff is like.

I need to get a cabinet like that KLC to hold my stuff in. Its scattered in various milk crates and then I have all my towels and pads in a plastic container.

The shelves are finally starting to sag on mine, but it works great. Ideally I'd like to have a metal cabinet.

For automotive parts I use an ultrasonic cleaner. Saw it on Jay Leno garage. Works better than any chemicals.... anyone have any good experience with it?

Those water blades are a literal time saver. screw a chamois. I can dry a truck, spot free in half the time.

What do you guys use on your dashes? I've been using the Meguiars wipes but they must have changed something... it streaks like crazy on my Mazda and my truck. Maybe it's just more obvious because they both have black interiors.

I just use regular old Armor All. Seems to get the job done.

It does work but I don't like the glossy/greasy feel to it!

Meguiers Supreme shine.
Black bottle, Yellow writing.
Who cares what it feels like. your not rubbing your hands all over your dashboard. (if you are, your doing it wrong!)

Simple Green the dash and all interior plastics to remove any product that may be on there already. Then use this stuff gives you that nice rich non glossy finish
