4:20 am and i'm up going through detailing forums, reading detailing guides, buying the odd and ends to my detailing kit, considering starting my own detailing business, just thinking too much about the perfect shine.
My thoughts are going to destroy me, i feel it.
But at least my cars happy

Re: I think i've become a detailing addict (shinnster)

Just to make you feel better dude....you're not alone. Sometimes I feel I'm spending too much time on my car and too much money on just detailing stuff. What's in your detailing goodie kit? Here's my list:
MX-7 to clean windows
Meguiar's SMR
Klasse AIO
Klasse SG
Blitz Wax
One Grand Show-Off
One Grand ERV
10+ foam applicators
4 wash mitts
3 Absorbers
4 JCPenny's 100% Cotton Bath Towels just for the cars
20+ 100% cotton terry towels
6 Microfiber Towels
4 plastic buckets
Simple Green
That's most of what I have. Am I crazy? My family thinks so.....

My family thought I was crazy when I put 7 coats of wax and spent 3 days detailing my 01 GTi, getting it ready to drive it back home to Florida from Michigan. THey thought I was nuts.
