It's been awhile (5 years).
Long story short, I have a new truck, an old dual action polisher and a bunch of detailing product that's either dried out or of questionable quality. I used to use the Mirror Glaze line of products but I can't find them on the shelf locally. I can find a bunch of the Ultimate line of products but I know nothing about them. I'll buy online if I have to, but if the Ultimate line is suitable then I'll get that instead.
I'm looking for recommendations for products (soap, paint cleaner, polish, wax and a plastic care product) that will work well on a white 4x4 pickup with black plastic detailing. The truck gets off-roaded regularly and is constantly bombarded by insects on the front end, however I'm anal retentive and like it looking minty fresh between weekends. Durability, resistance to bug etching and the ability to buff out scratches will be more important than showroom shine. Not having to scrape white stuff off black plastic is also a bonus.
I'd also like recommendations for;
A tire product that spreads evenly, will work it's way into mud terrain tire lugs and is either low lustre or doesn't shine.
A recommendation on how to care for a chromed plastic grille?
And recommendations on how to care for painted rims with a billet aluminium beadlock.
