    So I'm getting ready to have the nissan painted and marsha has her new G37 and i need some detailing products. Soaps, washers, and waxes. what are some good retail places to go? i don't really shop online much for this kind of stuff. i like reading bottles and feeling textures of the gloves and towels.

    Just use meguiars gold class products and you can find it at many stores maybe even walmart and fred meyers. Get an absorber cloth for drying down the vehicle.

    any auto parts store should have detailing products.. you'll probably pay more than you'd pay online.. Meguiars is always good stuff

    I detailed for several years, do you want basic stuff (washing and waxing) or serious detailing products (high speed buffer, buffing pads/compounds, interior cleaning chemicals)?

    basic stuff. i have to do my car and my gf's g37. i'm not looking to start a part time job or anything, just cleaning cars every 2 or 3 weeks in the summer. i only want to take 60-90 minutes per car inside and out.

    wash,
    wax,
    soap cloth,
    wax rags,
    leather/dash product.

    Then like said autozone or any other automotive store would have those products. Fred Meyers, Target and Walmart should have those items also. I would suggest the Meguiars Gold Class line of soap and wax. Just dont use armor all.
