That is a great site. However, if there are any impatient people out there who want a pretty decent guide to detailing without searching through a bunch of posts (or annoying the oldies) I saw this guide from Mothers' available for viewing/download. I thought it was a great starting point.

Complete Detail Guide: http://www.mothers.com/detailguidedo...etailGuide.pdf

PDF Download page for individual sections (Paint, Tires, etc.): http://www.mothers.com/detailguidedownload/

Personally, I like Meguiar's products, but the car care guide on their website was giving me problems.

Meguiars didn't have any articles that I could find (coming soon), but they did have some How-To videos along with some product demonstration videos.

I was looking through this Adobe document, and on page 32, it shows a guy cleaning the flying M. Yea, go Mazda! Product placement!

There will be more Mazda placement if they ever get me my MazdaSpeed6!

We also own 2 RX8's that we SCCA roadrace, and an RX7 drag car.

Check out the Mothers Reelworld section, too. There's a commercial we did in 2002 with Ken Saward, who was one of the Miata designers.

Meguires and Zaino How To's

An easy lookup...because autopia contains so much info it really can become quite confusing.

I would find it hard to find a more detailed detailing this this guy went for. Check out all the steps with pictures. Wish I had a week to waste on detailing mine lol.
