    So, for a bit of fun, what gear do you have and now organised is it?

    To start this off:

    - multiple boxes for wash mitts, alloys, polish & pads, microfibres (this is a BIG box), drying towels.
    - a caddy for using regular stuff like shampoo, wheel cleaner, iron out, window cleaner, quick detailer, bug and tar remover, ONR.
    - raceglaze 0ppm final rinse filter.
    - karcher k5 premium
    - 2x buckets for wash
    - 1 x bucket for wheels
    - seat for ar$e or to stand on
    - big crate of “spare” stuff
    - mini DA and pads + scholl S20
    - mega snow foam
    - mega wheel cleaner

    Slight Tangent - Your reload - are you using neat ? Or is that diluted in the bottle ?

    Reload used neat, sparingly.

    Also mixed it with QED 50/50 which works rather well.

    Some of my collection...... and yes I have a lot of Microfibre towels, infact Im running low on what I normally have... :) !

    I have different boxes for brushes, pads, applicators, gloves and plusher higher garde MF towels, trialing products etc. I try to keep things where I know I can find them... Doesnt always work out like that though!

    A fairly wide range of items collected over the years. Looking at it, probably a tad more than I really need but I help plenty of friends, family and neighbours out with detailing so always trying new products and improving techniques!

    Favourite gadgets from different ends of the price scale-

    Its a tie with the Rupess Ibrid Nano long kneck and the ScanGrip Multimatch - DA machines are great and the Ibrid enables you to get into some tight spots. The lights on the other hand ...really make a big difference.. v useful to have different sources of light in the garage when compunding/ polishing.

    I already have 5 fluorescent tubes and 3 seperate lights on the ceiling, but these take it to another level, especially for the sides of a car on a dark winters night. They are superb and I can highly recommend.

    And..... Detail Gardz - These eliminates the pesky hose pipe from getting caught on/under wheels. Once again v useful!

    Nice one, very organised! Life the fact you have separate boxes for trialling etc. Wish I had a garage, as would then have some mega lighting installed

    Well obviously

    In all seriousness, embarrassed to say but many moons ago I used one of these to get rid off a stubborn mark on the windscreen. Suffice to say despite lots of glass polish later, I could always see the scour mark...school boy error and all that

    I used to work at a community kids home teaching car maintenance and I asked one of them one day to give the lwb landrover a wash. Came back to find the proud lad standing back with a green scouring pad in his hand with a very clean vehicle.
    Next lesson involved polish, wax and much elbow grease...
