      I dont know why you need to worry about all this. The companies have created a market that did not exist just a few years ago. Do you show your car at exhibitions?
      I wonder how drivers have managed for a hundred years with much more inferior materials than today.
      These products are expensive stuff. To remove wax you can use a silicon and wax remover. This is very cheap and used by paint shops to remove wax and oil before spray painting. I bought a liter for about 3 dollars.
      Deep cleansing of car paint? What for? What will come next? Massage machine? Aloe Vera massage cream?

      Polish generally is an abrasive product to remove fine swirls and for final finishing
      paintwork cleanser or prewax cleansers are generally to clean the paintwork using chemical processes

      You would use polish for finer corrections as well as paint cleaning. You can use paint cleaners only for removing existing LSP if any and / or polishing oils left behind after polish.One example of paint cleaner we use is Iso Propyl alcohol. Paint cleaners are useful when we need to only remove last LSP before applying something else and don't need to go through the whole polishing step, so in that way its faster as compared to polishing.

      As a DIYer, do we need paint cleansers? I don't think so, there was a study on detailing world where wax was applied after using cleansers and without using cleansers and there was no perceptible difference in durability.

      Also, as Indian mentioned bodyshops use silicone and wax remover which would be as effective, but i could not locate one at my nearby paint shop.

I guess it is not too bad as a temporary solution since I rarely wash my car (waterless wash comes to the rescue). coolash , you being a nice DIYer and researcher in
      For me waxes have lasted daily rinse less washes for around a month, don't use waxes for protection, they are for looks for protection use sealants. I never wash my car using traditional shampoo now, rinse less wash is good enough nowadays. Also, hair shampoo may or may not harm paint, but why use it when you can get cheap and good car shampoos which will not have additives like moisturising cream or vitamin E.

      I wash the engine bay about once a year. I just spray degreaser on a dirty engine, wait 30 minutes and wash off with a power washer. I take care not to spray the water into the alternator. I dont blow dry, I just take the car for a drive.

      I have moved to Australia since 2014 and have carried on my OCD for detailing, thanks to you.

      Looking at Cquartz coating for my white car. Which one do you think i should use, UK or the TiO2 one(normal one)? Or Will you suggest Gyeon instead?
      Any polish you recommend before that (don't have a DA so prefer one which can be easily applied by hand).

      Dear Sir, now that we are talking about a degreaser or rather say an all purpose cleaner, please upload a video of the APCC in action since there are no reviews of it on GH or shopping websites. Please use something really greasy for demonstration so that we can observe its power and performance.
      Since it is mentioned on its label that it can be used on car exterior, is it meant to strip away the current layer of wax?
      Is the foaming sprayer available in store now? If it is, then please demonstrate its performance also in the video.

      Thank You

      The only way to prevent further rusting on something like this is to get it repaired ASAP. You'll have to change the panels probably.

      Hello piyush79

      Check out Krud Kutter The Must For Rust, it is available in Amazon and Ebay. I used it recently to repair some rust on my car's wheel well and underbody skirt. Though it was minor, the product did wonders.

      First you have to perfectly clean the rusted area. Use brush, wire scrub, sand paper to remove loose rust and paint above it. Then spray above said rust remover on the rust and let it soak. Keep spraying and don't let it dry. It takes 30 mins for minor rust and hours for major rust.

      Once the rust is gone, use brush to clean the surface and rinse it with plenty of water. The rust remover leaves white powder after drying. Use brush or rough cloth to clean it.

      Next, you can either use primer to stop rusting again or rust converter incase there is still some rust. I have also tried Tuf-kote Converust RC800 and it is good too. Apply it on the rust area and let it work for 24 hours, then you can apply primer, paint or etc.

      I hope these products will help you.

      P.S. FYI, Iron X is used to clean wheels, not for rust repair.

      Thanks...
      Best Regards
