You go to a car show, and the cars and trucks look amazing. The cars may be 50 years old, but they look like they just rolled off the showroom floor at the dealership.
Well, here’s the secret. Car detailers use a variety of products that you probably don’t use.
OK, so you probably knew this already, but here’s what you probably don’t know – the products and tools they actually use.
Here is a list of some important car detailing products that will make your car looking great. You’ll want to include these with other car cleaning products such as shampoos and tire dressings.
- Clay Bars: These bars also known as detailing bars are meant to remove impurities from the paint of your vehicle. Washing your car is great for getting rid of surface level dirt and grime. Clay bars take it to the next level.
- Rotary Polisher: Most detailers will also use a rotary polisher to help remove scratches. These polishers are able to help remove scratches because of the tremendous amount of heat they produce while spinning. If you’re considering using this tool be sure your are properly trained on how to use it. Rotary polishers can burn through the clear coat if you are not careful.
- Paint Sealant: Paint sealants help to protect your car or truck’s paint from contaminants. This car care product also helps to make your car or truck look shiny. Sealant is similar to car wax, but it does not need to be applied as often.
- Swirl Finders: These are powerful spotlights that allow car detailers to find paint imperfections on your vehicle. These swirl finders help to identify the problem, so the detailers can fix them.
These are just some of the car care tools that detailers use to make cars and trucks look great. If you’re considering any of these products, be sure to learn how to properly use them before trying them out on your car.
