Hey Daniel...do you have a good online source for the blackfire diamond wet? I'm having a hard time finding it. Also, can you recommend a good car wash that removes old wax before a complete detail? Thx.

Best thing to do is just shop around on Amazon or go to detailedimage.com (pm me for a discount code)

The company that makes it just went under, but that specific product line was immediately bought back up by another company.

As far washes to remove wax I suggest Chemical Guys Citrus wash.

Can you also recommend a specific clay kit or is the Meguiar's Smooth Surface Clay Kit that you find in the store good enough? I'm in the middle of building up my "ultimate detailing kit" with all the correct products that I should be using. I'm going to do a strip wash, clay bar, m205, blackfire full detail at the end of the summer. Can't wait

The Meguiar's kit is fine. Chemical Guys also has some good clay. Just stay away from the Turtle Wax kit. It sucks, IMHO.

Cool thx...
I'm also counting on my detailing job taking at least two days. Day one- wash, clay, wash. Day two- m205, blackfire. I will keep my Jeep in the garage but on day two, I would expect some dust settled on the paint. Do I need to wash again before the polish and blackfire?

Under Washing the car, a step was left out, spray the car from top to bottom when washing and rinsing, because the dirt and grime will flow down, don't wash the sides and move to the top. Start with the top and then do the sides, front and and back.
