Thanks guys! Now to the rest of you, the examples have been laid out. Now go clean your cars up.

I'm thinking this is my contest and something should be awarded to the winner. What you guys think? A product, discount, tool, what would you like to win?

Yesterday was labor day, anybody wash their car up? For you garage queens, you can post your pics up too, as long as it was cleaned by you.

I am thinking some carpro products for the giveaway. Not many of you know about them and you really need to so I think this is a good way to get their products in your hands.

Had to order some stuff so that should all arrive by Wednesday. I’ll probably hop on it Friday or Saturday. Haven’t had a second to look at the weather so I gotta check that out today as well.

For those that have extensive bug build up on their vehicles, this video was just posted and may offer some insight as to what products to use.

Nope, I use carpro bugout but thats because its in inventory. If I was buying new, this is another option. Not a fan of adams or chemical guys versions, they aren't strong enough.

I bought some Turtle Wax stuff after my road trip. I'm really hoping there's something much better out there, as I am very underwhelmed.
I think I would like something like the one in that post, one that works on enzyme breakdown, easy on paint.
Any chance you could give me your top 3-4, and I'll see what I can find in Canada (hopefully local).

CarPro BugOut - Eshine in Canada
Gtechniq W8 Bug Remover - Manufacturer Link
Griots Garage Bug & Smudge Remover - Canadian Resellers

Those would be my top 3 choices, in order of preference. Eshine in Canada does offer Gtechniq but it wasnt on their site so I linked the manufacturer. Chances are they can get the W8.

All 3 also offer complete kits if you were go exclusively with one manufacturer for your car cleaning chemicals. Might be worth a look around, never know what you may find to make cleaning your vehicle a lot easier.
