Nanoskin Smooth Instant Detail Spray

Nanoskin Smooth

Originally, did not carry the Nanoskin Smooth Instant Detail Spray individually. This product was initially only sold in the Nanoskin Brilliant Shine Autoscrub Kit. After several customers had great results with the Nanoskin Brilliant Shine Autoscrub Kit we started to see high demand to carry the quick detailer included in this kit individually.

After hearing such high demand, began selling the Nanoskin Smooth Instant Detail Spray separately. Now this product can be purchased here:

I had to see for myself what all the positive feedback was about, so I grabbed a bottle and decided to use it with the new Duragloss Plush Microfiber Polishing Cloth.

Duragloss Polishing Cloth

I’ve used this SUPER Plush Microfiber Towel before and it’s turning into one of my favorite microfiber towels for Quick Detailers and Waterless/Rinseless Washes.

The first thing I noticed about the Nanoskin Instant Detail Spray is the smell. I asked a few of my friends and we came to conclusion that this Quick Detailer smells like Grape Flinstone Vitamins! Everyone loved the smell. The next thing I noticed was the high level of lubricity. As I ran the Duragloss towel across my paint, the detailer never felt “grabby”; so inducing swirl marks or light scratches into my paint was never a concern. The detailer was never difficult to remove or smeared.

After applying the detailer, I stepped back and was amazed at the level of gloss. The last product I applied to my red paint was Dodo Juice – Bouncer’s 22 Wax and my motorcycle looked great. After a thorough inspection, no swirl marks were induced.

Then I checked the price! Only $9.99 for a 16oz spray bottle! This product easily outperformed the price. Then I checked the price for a gallon: $24.99!!! $24.99 for a 128oz bottle!

I highly recommend checking out the Nanoskin Smooth Instant Detail Spray!



GTechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer

The nano-active coating that lasts.

Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer is a nano-active coating that cures to the paint finish to become the functional surface layer of the paint. This non-porous film stands between the elements and your vehicle’s finish, providing exceptional protection and gloss. Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer lasts up to 10 times longer than dealer-applied paint sealants and offers extreme gloss retention, scratch resistance, water and dirt repellency, UV protection, and self-cleaning action.


Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer is different than other coatings because it bonds so tightly that it actually becomes the functional surface of your vehicle’s paintwork. In fact, Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer lends part of its molecular structure to the surface molecules of the paint creating a covalent bond stronger than other sealants can even come close to forming.

The sub-micron crystalline film formed by Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer is rock hard, which helps to prevent marring and wash-induced swirl marks. Gtechniq extensively tested Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer against other waxes and sealants and found 50% less marring on C1 treated surfaces. In addition to reducing the risk of marring paint, Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer also repels water and dirt like no other, creating a surface that is much easier to keep clean.

Not convinced? The team at Gtechniq wanted to be sure of the effectiveness of this cutting edge technology, so they enlisted the help of the world’s most respected weathering facility in Arizona. After a simulated three year run in the punishing Arizona sun, Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer was proven to have the best gloss retention of any product tested. In fact, the Gtechniq panel lost only half as much gloss as its closest competitor and a third less than the average!

Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer will maintain the beauty of your paintwork with one simple application.

We even have the Rupes Big Foot Polisher Bag and matching apron!

The Rupes Big Foot Random Orbital Polishing System consists of a line of electric and pneumatic car polishers along with foam pads and polishing compounds tailored specifically to the enthusiast and professional who demand the best finish possible.

At the heart of the Rupes Big Foot Random Orbital Polishing System lies the LHR 15ES and LHR 21ES Big Foot car polishers. These polishers get their name from their massive 15 and 21 millimeter throws. The throw of the machine indicates the size of the orbit the pad makes. Consider this: a conventional random orbital polisher has a throw between 4 and 8 millimeters. The advantage of a larger throw is that more surface area is being covered as you polish. This means you’ll be able to remove swirls, scratches, water spots and other paint defects in considerably less time.

The Rupes LHR 15ES and LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polishers are the smoothest running random orbital polishers available. Like a fine Italian sports car, the Rupes LHR 15ES and LHR 21ES feature remarkable engineering and exquisite craftsmanship; the ergonomics along with fit and finish on the LHR 15ES and LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher are superb.

Experience the Rupes Big Foot Random Orbital Polishing System for yourself and experience paint polishing like you never have with any other system.

New Microfiber Pads

LC Microfiber 1

Thousands of hours of research and countless design changes have led to the production of Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads! Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads utilize the latest in microfiber technology to provide a single design that can be used for compounding and polishing! Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are manufactured using ultra-bond adhesive technology to ensure the pads don’t delaminate, even after countless uses. Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are available in two configurations for dual action and rotary polishers.

What are the benefits of microfiber pads versus foam pads for compounding and polishing? It’s quite simple, actually. Microfiber pads are constructed of thousands of strands of microfiber and these fibers provide more cut because they’re actually a form of abrasive. Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads take this concept a step further by utilizing microfiber loops that are more plush and more dense compared to other microfiber pads. These fibers are sewn closer together which means the Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads cut more, finish nicer, and more importantly, last longer.

Two Designs – Dual Action & Rotary – The rotation of a dual action polisher versus a rotary polisher affects the polishing action of a microfiber pad. To compensate for this difference Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are available in two configurations for both polisher types. Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads for dual action polishers are thinner and made with a special cross-linked polyethylene core for maximum cutting and polishing ability, but flexible enough to adapt to curves and contours. Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads for rotary polishers are made with a special reticulated foam core designed to disperse heat that occurs with rotary polishing. This thick foam core also provides excellent flexibility for contoured surfaces.

Take your polishing skills to the next level with the Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads!

White wax stains and what you can do about them.

White wax stains on plastic trim come from solvents in the wax. These solvents are not meant for cleaning the paint. They are actually just there as a carrier for the protective ingredients in the wax. Once the wax is applied to your car, the solvent evaporates, leaving the wax on the paint. The problem is, the solvents stain plastic trim.

The best defense against wax stains is to prevent them in the first place! You can tape off plastic trim if you’re applying your wax with a buffer. You can just be very careful when applying wax by hand. Accidents still happen so your other option is to choose a wax that will not stain trim. Many WOWO (wipe on, wipe off) waxes will not stain trim and you can identify them by the fact that they also do not dry to a white haze. Examples are Pinnacle Souverän, Pinnacle Signature Series II, Detailer’s Pro Series Max Wax, Wolfgang Füzion, Poorboy’s Natty’s Paste Wax, and P21S Concours Carnauba Wax.

If your wax of choice is an apply-and-dry wax, you can still remove wax stains from trim by acting quickly. You can use a dedicated wax remover, like Griot’s Garage Dried On Wax Remover or you can opt for Detailer’s Pro Series Cleanse-All Exterior Cleaner. It will remove everything from the trim, including any dressings, so you’ll want to reapply protection after cleaning the trim.

Do I need to use detailing clay?

If you’re asking yourself this question, most likely you do need to use detailing clay. If your vehicle has never been clayed or hasn’t been clayed in a year or more, it’s time to use detailing clay. If you need more evidence, try the  bag test:

Wash and dry your vehicle, put a plastic sandwich bag over your hand and lightly rub your fingertips over the paint. The plastic bag increases your tactile sensitivity so can feel things you might otherwise miss. If the paint feels gritty or rough, your paint is contaminated.

Vehicles can accumulate industrial fallout, brake dust, rail dust, and other contaminants any time. Maintaining a coat of wax or paint sealant helps protect the paint, but these persistent little particles can still get through the wax barrier. To maintain smooth, silky paint, use detailing clay twice a year. You can clay more often if you have Pinnacle Ultra Poly Clay, our ultra fine clay bar.

For more info on detailing clay and clay lubricants, read our Detailing Clay How-To.

How dirty is too dirty to safely use a rinseless wash to wash my car?

by Mike Phillips

The question often comes up,

How dirty is too dirty to safely use a rinseless wash to wash my car?

Great question and while every situation will be a little bit different you can safely wash cars, trucks and s.u.v.’s with light dirt accumulation. Vehicles with a heavy dirt accumulation, especially if they are not regularly washed or if there is visible mud caked onto the paint should have the large accumulation of dirt first removed using a pressure washer or a strong spray of water. If you don’t have access to a pressure washer or a a free flowing source of water, (a garden hose hooked up to a water spigot), then most towns have a do-it-yourself car wash that you can use for a modest fee.

Reasons to use a Rinseless Wash
In a perfect world everyone would have access to free flowing water, warm temperatures, no restrictions on when and where they can wash their car etc.

The problem is we don’t live in a perfect world and not everyone has access to free flowing water or has the ability to use free flowing water due to water restrictions.

Here’s a list of some reasons for using a Rinseless Wash….

Areas with government enforced water restrictions
In today’s reality, there are many cities and even entire countries with Government Enforced Water Restrictions. In these places it’s against laws and/or regulations to wash your car with a free flowing source of water.

Geographical areas of drought
In some places there may be no official restrictions against water use but the geographical area itself is experiencing severe drought and self-compliance as well as common sense prevents people from using a free flowing source of water to wash their vehicles.

People who live in Apartments
In some areas if you live in an Apartment, a Condo or a Townhouse, there may be no place to wash your car with a free flowing source of clean water or there may be rules against it that you have agreed to comply with.

Washing in cold winter months
In cold weather, extreme low temperatures can make washing a car with a free flowing source of water dangerous and difficult at best.

Mobile Detailers
Rinseless Washing enables mobile detailers to get their customer?s car clean without having to depend upon a water source on location or the extra hassle of transporting hundreds of gallons of water in their Truck, Van or on a Trailer. Besides that, some areas require mobile detailers to contain and capture their run-off water and this is an added expense, somewhat difficult as well as time consuming.

Anytime you?re traveling
If you doing any long distance traveling, Rinseless Washing enables you to wash your car while in route.

How dirty is too dirty to safely use a rinseless wash?
There are limits as to what you should tackle with a rinseless wash and what you should take to a car wash, below are some examples…

This is light dirt accumulation
This is a good example of a vehicle that can be washed using a rinseless wash.

Image shows truck with light dirt accumulation, suitable for cleaning with a rinseless wash.

This Tundra is a good example of a vehicle that can be cleaned with a rinseless wash.

Heavy dirt accumulation and mud should always be hosed off before washing your vehicle.
