    The Beginning to My CG arsenal

    I recently stumbled upon some CG products and gave them a try. Instantly I was hooked and now want to buy 6 of everything. Since this pictured order I've purchased a woolly mammoth microfiber, bug and tar wash, heavy claybar, orange degreaser, meticulous matte, vss and clean slate. I should be good for awhile now.

    Wow.....thats quite an order.....I can give you reviews on a couple of the things you purchased.....

    Diablo wheel gel is just an average wheel cleaner....not great...not terrible....smells like bubble gum....I am down to my last 16 oz of it....and its not on my re-order list

    VRP is my go-to tire dressing. I use the Durafoam applicator pads they sell (I have a Tundra)...they make it easy to apply. It is an excellent product...dries fast, no sling, easy to regulate the amount of shine

    Do yourself a favor...order yourself some of the chemical resistant sprayers.....much better than the basic ones

    What do you use in place of the Diablo wheel gel. I have a Silverado with factory black powder coated rims. So far it seems to work well on the powder coating

    If the wheels are not bad, I use Meguiars APC (aka D101) diluted 4:1. If they're really bad, I break out the Griots Garage Heavy Duty wheel cleaner. It's not that Diablo does not work, it's just okay. I keep D101 in stock, and have several bottles with different dilutions, so I really do not need another two bottles on the shelf.

    So far the Diablo is working well on my wheels. I only bought a 16 oz so when that runs out maybe I'll look into one of the cleaners you mentioned

    A friend of mine showed me the foam gun. So I bought one along with a gallon of honeydew snow foam. And I've been hooked ever since
