Just spent 500 bucks at autogeek on the goodies below. I'm going to post before and after pics. This is going to be my first time detailing with a pc so I'm glad there are pros like got_leather around here that can help out on questions. My first question is:

Can you still polish the edges of the front bumper with a 5.5inch pad or do I have to invest in a small specialize pad to handle tight areas like that? Thanks for any advice.

Here are some pics. Just to let you know that I have not had a chance to white diamond it and polish it yet. These pics are just strictly Klasse AIO 1x and Klasse SG 2x.

I'm thinking of switching to Zaino but wasn't sure if it will give me a better shine than Klasse. The car is premium white pearl. What do you guys think?

lol no free PC. Great purchase man. You can use the 5.5 inch pads with the PC pretty much everywhere. You just have to get the right angle sometimes to properly do. If your worried about any edges, just slow the speed down a little when doing so. Also, the Leatherique stuff is great but 32oz kit is alot. For you, I would of just got the 160z but that's me. Post some pictures when your done. Also if you need any more help, feel free to ask.

hey man, great choice and you're in for a detailing addiction which will hurt your wallet. I would have personally opted for smaller sizes. what kind of microfibers did you get? never can get enough quality microfibers.

The PC is what I am buying. The bonus is just 2 free orange pads.

Thanks for the advice. I'm detailing 3 cars with full leather interior that's why I opt for the larger sizes. It was a better value and should last me longer too. I'll post pictures when I'm done. I'm not sure if anything will go wrong so I'm going try it on my oldest car first.

Yeah, I started out with wax/sealants then hand polishing then I find myself spending alot of time detailing and now this. I just needed some quick detail towels so I chose the 70/30 blend at 380grams.

Just received my order today. Will probably practice on my oldest car first maybe this weekend. Dark Green Civic.

I use Klasse AIO on my cars. Do you guys think that the White Diamond will remove Klasse AIO of I put the glaze on top of it? I know for sure that AIO will remove the glaze. The description on the Poorboy White Diamond Glaze is that it has light cleaners to lift dirt and oil. Does any know if it is strong enough to remove sealant?

use the glaze after the AIO. But then after that, make sure to top with something with some real durability.

Also, I hoped you use a discount code such as autopia for 10% or AGO for free shipping.

I recently placed a $350 order at autogeek as well. I have paid off my purchase by detailing other people's cars. So far I've made about $700 from that order and still have about half left. Next time I'm going to try chemicalguys though.

Just for all those Adam's fans out there. Check out chemicalguys....think you'll find some interesting similarities..... many (if not all) of Adam's products are re-labeled chemicalguys products. Don't believe me??? Order the chemicalguys detail spray and right on their website it tells you that they will repackage products under your label. Just FYI for those who like to save money!
