This is for all you newbs out there that keep asking the same questions. This will be updated over time, and thus will always be changing. Im going to go through the forum and see what all has been asked, then answer it the best I can.

Find it at: http://www.detailingfaq.blogspot.com

Thats all for now. Ask any questions that arent covered, Im trying to revamp the Show and Shine to something or epic proportions. <img src="/images/graemlins/woot.gif" alt="" /> Haha, anywho. Peace y'all.

-Matt

To add on to window cleaners.....

windex is an amonia based formula, and will eat thru your tinted windows if used a lot on the inside. I like to use Invisible Glass (Black bottle, yellow cap) and newspaper.

With that being said, there are some WIndex formulas that are ammonia free, but even those suck.

Stoners Invisible Glass for the windows and the cheapest paper towels you can find. No dyes or addatives that make them soft which causes them to streak. Think of why people use newspaper to clean windows.

Yes, it does not tear as easy, and does not leave any lint. Diapers work well too, but theyre expensive.

For glass, I use Sprayway which is a really foamy soapy glass cleaner, which works really well for eating bugs and even sap, and follow it with Stoner's invisible glass, which gets rid of all the soap and always leaves a streak-free shine

Newspapers is all I use for cleaning window and they never leave streaks or lint. True about windex it will turn your tint different colors.

I use Oreck Glass & Mirror cleaner on my windows. I swear by it, but I've never used some of the other recommended cleaners.
