So it looks like you have that inside your trunk? What are you using to hold it down so it doesn't move around the trunk while the car is moving.

Sweet! It's my first new car so I'm extra paranoid about the little things ;)

For right now its just got a ratchet strap on the child seat anchors and a microfiber behind the crate to keep from tearing up the carpet on the back of the seat :) I'd like to find a more permanent solution but it's very snug as is!

what type of cleaners do you use..... i use all Meguiars products
We used to own a small auto detailing business so.. this sounds weird but they only sell the cleaners to businesses, there high concentrate that you mix with water to delute them.

Off the top of my head i have

Spray wax: shammy off for a nice finish
Final Touch: simmalar
Wheel cleaner: like acid so i hardly use it (loves to eat clearcoat)
interior leather
interior fabric
engine cleaner
tire shine (with sex lube in it, sounds wonky but it gives a better shine because legally they cannot add the oils in tire shine that they used to)
hmmm Meguiars soap
Meguiars multi purpose wipes
and a few things my friends picked up for me as a gift.

Soon metal polish to get rid of the water spots on the chrome.

I used to carry round a similar tub full of product in my Statesman - since putting the Opti Coat on the VT all I have now, in a bag on the bag hook in the boot, is:

Spray bottle of Optimum No Rinse diluted down to quick detailer level
Eagle One 20/20
Aerospace 303 for the interior plastic
Meguiars Hot Shine Tyre Spray
One huge microfibre waffle weave towel for water removal after washing
About a dozen microfibre cloths, a couple of waffle weave for final detailing, a couple for glass, interior, one for rims & exhaust cleaning, etc.

Here's a pic of mine. Auto part Tool

dr Beasley products that came with the car. Soon to be replaced with Adams polishes as soon as Drs Bs runs out.

Funny that everyone thinks Matte cars are so hard to take care of but I only need soap, sealer, detailer to keep it looking clean.

I use
Soap: chemical guys citrus wash and clear
Wheels: Chemical guys citrus wash and clear (this stuff is amazing)

when doing a full detail the following are my go-to items:

clay bar: Meguiars Clay

polish: Meguiars m105 followed by M205 (with porter cable PC 7424 XP)

wax: Collinite 476S / Colinite 845

sealant: blackfire wet diamond

wheels sealant: Armor All Wheel Protectant

tire shine: Turtle Wax black tire coat

interior: Griot's garage interior cleaner followed by Meguiars Interior Detailer

Windows: Stoner Invisible Glass followed by Rain X

Exhaust: Steel wool (#0000) + Mother's Mag Alumn. Polish (this combo is the absolute best combo EVER! :p)
some people cringe when they hear steel wool but this is the "extra extra fine" and with the polish and a nice buff it comes out flawless)
this was on my old G35 exhaust
