I would suggest you attend a detail day. They have them at a lot of detail chemical distributors. I know there is one on NY fathers day weekend at Poorboys world in Nyack NY.


I personally use coatings. I polish with a Rupes machine.


The key is no so much in the products or machines but knowing how to use them.


The best is getting some hands on teaching. I will really speed up the learning curve. I can sent you a product list, but you really need to know how to polish to get the results you need.,

What would you suggest for a rookie detailer!
I'm sure you have experience and tools that make the job more efficient.

They are awesome! Used them for years, removes all dust and pollen, leaves a perfectly clean surface. Do not use on a wet surface, and do not use in high humidity. Make sure you buy an original CCD, the knockoffs are junk!

Would never use any duster. They scratch. Please don't use.

Westbury Jeep

And here I thought I was meticulous when it came to car care. Very nice looking Trailhawk. How does it ride?

I noticed you went to Westbury Jeep. I'll be shopping for a Jeep Cherokee soon (probably wait for the 2016's to hit the showrooms) and Westbury Jeep is close by, so that's one dealership I'll visit. How are they, from the dealership to the service department? How was the whole buying process, and how are they to deal with afterwards? Any first-hand experience and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

They gave me the lowest price. The sales process was not fun. Sales person knows little about the advanced tech I was interested in learning about before buying.

There is a good manager that helped get me through the process.

Service department have very long hours. Has been great.

If you pm me your number I'd be happy to share more.

My jeep regularly gets scratched to ****. I travel narrow trails where the pinyons and junipers push the mirrors against the windows. Out here we call it "desert detailing."

I can understand keeping a rain-X -type coating on the windows.

But really... isn't a jeep supposed to be used as a jeep?

I see far more posts about washing and waxing jeeps than I see about taking jeeps on rough roads.

I hope you enjoy your jeep and I enjoy mine. My way.

Been off road before and it's fun. Jeeps are great. And I like mine looking good. Nothing more or less.

Well this picture says 1/2 what I would like to say

The other half is that some of us like me, do not have off road places except if ya wanna pay someone to have at it...I bought my trail hawk for looks and the massive amounts of potholes in the city
