    What dash cleaner/protectant won't fog windshield?

    Optiseal is the best internal dressing that I have found. Doesn't haze the windshield and seals surfaces.

    Engine bay detail

    I've had good luck with 303 on the engine parts. It's very slick so dirt doesn't adhere, and the engine can be cleaned with just a strong solution of car soap (Gold Class @ 32:1)and a hose. Didn't even have to reapply the 303 after a year. APC or stronger cleaners will remove it.

    Best spray wax?

    Optimum car wax or optiseal. Both can be used as drying aids. Meguiar's sealants attract a lot of dust in my experience... Including D156. It's great for interiors or around the house. Still prefer optiseal.

    Same Question - Different Day

    Most sealants use mineral spirits and other solvents that will degrade the wax under the sealant. Sealant first, let cure, then a wax.

    Touchless washes bad for paint?

    The detail shop here has a product that can be used in a touchless car wash. It is essentially a water based <span style="font-weight: bold">degreaser</span>. I won't be putting my car through one of those.

    Quick Detailer

    For an OTC detailer, I would use 303 Speed Detailer. Very good product, better than UQD, and cheaper on Amazon. Any retail product will be expensive, though. Would recommend getting a waterless wash concentrate and diluting accordingly. Meguiars D115 is probably the best out there, but is...

    slide glide?

    It was developed..or at least sold..as a very stringy grease to slow down the slide of automatic pistols, so as to reduce felt recoil. This could theoretically work, but is ill advised on anything other than a racegun on a range, under ideal conditions. Slowing the slide reduces the...
