    I've been using Meguiars Ultimate Quick detailer during the towel drying stage and as a clay bar lube and my bottle just ran out. I'd be interested in trying something new. Convince me there's something better

    Ammo Hydrate is next level when used as a drying aid (its purpose). You can just use your clean wash soap solution as clay lube after you wash your car.

    I know itís old school but Iíve been using Zainoís line for years. Never had a problem with the products or the paint; just a problem with the cost. They are expensive and offer no discounts on shipping.

    Make your own and thank me later. Distilled water, CarPro ECH20 and a few ounces of CarPro Reload. Excellent hydrophobic properties, shines great and last weeks. Super easy to use and mix up.

    Can this diy solution be used as a maintenance item for Cquartz UK or should should Reload by itself be used?

    Reload is a true maintenance for Cquartz however the detailer I described when used regularly will lengthen the time between needing reload full strength.

    I use Zaino z6 detail spray. It provides a great shine effect and doesn't leave any marks.

    As suggested by someone in the F11 TopCoat thread, I've been using the Mothers Speed Clay 2.0 when I apply quick detailers. Works great.

    Wolfgang Uber Detailer is great for detailing. Or ONR diluted is great as a detailer and extremely cost effective.

    Very happy with Kenotek QD (smell is great too) best one I have tried. I also use ONR off and on along with Sonax Brilliant Shine to maintain my CC36 coating.

    Kenotek is my favorite and a little goes a long way, great on glass too.

    For a non ceramic coated car, I keep a bottle of chemical guys speed wipe in the trunk to clean up bird crap and what not. I use optimum spray wax as a drying aid.
