    Is there a big difference in results when it comes to hand and machine buffing? Btw, this is for sealer/glaze and wax. I feel that buying a rotary is too steep (cost-wise and learning curve also) given that I will just wax once a month (since the car is always garaged and rarely exposed to the weather). Thanks

    Also what is best to use for hand buffing? I have MicroTex Ultra Plush (green) and Chamois.

    Theveed, I have some questions...
    1. What is the difference between a Car polishing compound and a Car wax? How often should I use each
    2. Do you recommend Turtle wax products?
    3. Do you offer shampoo for carpet interiors? How much? My car's a 2004 Honda City.

    Wax ( Synthetic)- Megs NXT

    Not everything is required but one product for each purpose is enough to detail and maintain almost any car that is in reasonably good condition. If you can get a handle on using these products and enjoy detailing, you will be better prepared to experiment with the more expensive enthusiasts products. Combine a little internet study with this starting point and you will ready to decide where you want to go from there. You will already have all you need to keep your car looking the best in your neighborhood.

    I hope this helps.

    Sir Theveed,

    You can wax as often as you want, a typical wax will last you a couple of weeks tops. A sealant will last longer. Your paint will love the protection a wax gives. Wax eating up your paint? Its a myth.
    Sir meron kayong nabanggit na sealant ano ba itong mga product na ito or brand that you can recommend, kasi ang gamit ko lang ay glaze pagkatapos wax, at paano gamitin ang sealant, dapat ba iapply ito after wax?

    Klasse Twins bro, but it isn't available locally, if your interested you can join the group buy, Theveed will announce this pag meron, abang abang ka na lang.

    You apply sealant before applying wax. The biggest difference is that a sealant will last a couple of months given proper "curing".

    same inquiry with jcee about lexol. i read it somewhere that most leather care shops carry this. but no luck in finding one.
    i ended in trying mothers leather cleaner and conditioner. kinda pricey, but my ride's lether seats are softer now.
