When it comes to detailing gear, Meguiar’s is one of the biggest players in the game. The company has been around since 1901, so has built up quite a reputation and product range over the past century. If you need a product for a specialist job, it’s more than likely you’ll find it in the Meguiar’s catalogue, but what if you just want to give your car a good old fashioned going over? What products do you need for all those important jobs? Well, that’s where this feature is here to help. We’ve teamed up with Meguiar’s UK to bring you these kit bag essentials…
WASH: ULTIMATE SNOW FOAM CANNON KIT, £55 Meguiar’s Ultimate Snow Foam Cannon Kit contains both the Meguiar’s snow foam cannon and the Extreme Cling Ultimate Snow Foam. The outstanding foaming action gently helps to lift away dirt, road grime and contaminants, all without stripping your vital wax protection for a touchless pressure rinse!
HAND APPLIED PROTECTION: HYBRID CERAMIC LIQUID WAX, £28 Meguiar’s sophisticated Hybrid Ceramic chemistry makes this product as easy to apply as an ordinary liquid wax! Engineered to be applied by either hand or dual action variable speed polisher (DA polisher), this formula produces a slick protective water beading layer that seals your paint from the environment. It can also be used on chrome and plastic trim or as a topcoat over traditional waxes and sealants too.
SWIRL AND IMPERFECTION SOLVER: ULTIMATE COMPOUND, £16 This revolutionary product dramatically reduces the time and effort required to restore abused or neglected paint finishes. Unlike traditional compounds that can leave behind fine scratches and haze, Meguiar’s Ultimate Compound cuts so fast and leaves the finish looking so good, it’s hard to believe possible. The secret is Meguiar’s exclusive micro-abrasive technology created for state-of-the-art products for body shops and detailers. Ultimate Compound works quickly to remove below-the-surface defects and restore colour and clarity without scratching or swirling.
QUICK PROTECTION: HYBRID CERAMIC WAX, £23 Do you want an easy to use car wax with cutting-edge, sophisticated technology that delivers the latest in protection? Well, of course you do and Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Wax is the answer. With the all-new, advanced Si02 hybrid technology you get ceramic protection that’s so easy to use, you can actually wax your paint as you rinse off your car! After washing and rinsing off the soap, simply spray on Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Wax and then rinse with a strong stream of water. This final rinse helps to spread and lay down the wax evenly for you. Dry your vehicle like you would normally with a quality microfibre drying towel and you’re left with ceramic protection. Conventional? No. Sensational? YES! WHEELS: SUPREME WHEEL BRUSH, FROM £17 Meguiar’s Supreme Wheel Brushes don’t have bristles but a microfibre head that prevents scratches, but will thoroughly clean every type of rim. There’s two sizes, large and medium, to suit all wheels big and small.
WHEELS & TYRES: ULTIMATE ALL WHEEL CLEANER, £17 Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner delivers a powerful cleaning performance that is also safe for ALL factory wheel and brake finishes. This advanced chemistry blends road grime attacking surfactants with active brake dust dissolving agents. For best results, apply dry, spraying your wheels from the bottom up. Leave for two minutes. Gently agitate if required with a microfibre wash mitt or wheel brush. Then hose down. Simple!
TYRES: ENDURANCE TYRE GEL, £14 Meguiar’s high gloss Endurance Tyre Gel continues to be a favourite among enthusiasts looking for long-lasting performance with an elegant look. The distinct formulations stop tyres from turning brown and eliminate the mess of overspray, drips, streaks and spotted driveways because it’s applied by a tyre dressing applicator pad and not sprayed on.
