Shine Shop Automotive | Paint Correction | Automotive Detail | Ceramic Coating Expert
We know how overwhelming shopping for proper maintenance supplies can be when you are trying to maintain your vehicle.
Caring for your car is as crucial to its appearance and longevity as performing regular maintenance. You wouldn't ignore an engine rattle or a low engine oil level, so you shouldn't leave your car's appearance to the whims of birds and the natural elements or the guy on the street corner reusing the same towels and wash mitt over and over and over.
That's why we've rounded up a collection of car care products that will keep your vehicle looking its best without all of the confusion. These are products we use daily in our facility as well as in our own garages.
Try some, or all of the following solutions for keeping your car looking as beautiful as it did when you picked it up from us the first time!

ecoshine paint | IGL
We recommend this product as simply a drying agent. We never recommend using any products as a spray and wipe product for cleaning purposes.
Below is the company description:
ecoshine paint, is a waterbased, zero VOC nanotechnology spray-on/ wipe off cleaner which safely removes surface contaminants & leaves your car absolutely spotless. It is designed to ‘lift’ dirt away while the powerful surfactants break down road grime. The added silane creates a smooth & protected finish with less dirt pick up.
We recommend HydroSilex as a maintenance spray for all ceramic coated vehicles.
This will act as not only a drying agent but also add to the protection.
HYDROSILEX - As a maintenance Spray
Ceramic coatings will not perform as promised unless they are cared for. HydroSilex is the perfect product for your already installed professional coating.
We DO NOT recommend this as a stand alone product.

5 Gallon Buckets with grit guards ( 3 will be needed)
You will need a bucket for each of the following purposes:
1. Soap Bucket
2. Rinse Bucket
3. Bucket dedicated to only use with wheels ( the micro particles from brakes can cause havoc on paint, this helps limit that chance)
4. This link will include Gama seal as well as Grit guard that is needed.
Micro-Restore is superior for treating, cleaning and preparing microfibers because it is a powerful degreaser a strong detergent with the absence of bleach or fabric softeners, both of which mean a certain slow death to microfibers. Micro-Restore works to remove every last bit of product that is naturally absorbed by microfibers cleaning them thoroughly, opening their pores which allows them to do their job to the best of their capabilities and extending their life.
Foam cannon (for use with pressure washer)
Cover your vehicle in a flurry of foam quickly with the foam cannon. The foam cannon works with a pressure washer to produce a thick, clinging foam and elminates the need for "hand washing". The foam if allowed to sit for 15-20 minutes will work and clean the paint, less hands on means less chance for micro marring or small scratches.
Duragloss Car Wash ( Concentrate)
Depending on whether you have a Ceramic Pro Coated Car or are following our wash & polish program will depend on how much you will use.
Coated Cars: You will be filling a foam gun system so purchase gallon size
All Others: You would only be using 1 cap full per car wash, so the smaller bottle should last a long time.
The Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth is woven specifically for washing and polish removal. It has a soft touch that is extra gentle on sensitive clear coat finishes. Plus, the cloth has no edges, making accidental scratches virtually impossible. ( remeber to wash these after every use, do not allow to sit in a bucket, dust particles ccause micro marring)

Many all purpose cleaners boast a pH level of 12 or 13. This level of pH is incompatible with leather. When using these harsh products, the cleaning towel may turn brown. What appears to be dirt are actually chemicals from the tanning process being removed. These cleaners actually reverse the tanning process, which will ultimately cause the leather to deteriorate. Lexol Leather Cleaner has an optimum pH balanced cleanser (between 5 and 5.5; slightly acidic) with purified water, premixed and added to a newly available towelette from DuPont. These individual towels are incredibly strong, able to stand up to tough jobs, and are absorbent, holding more solution than conventional wipes.
