Detail Shop (Supplies) in Bay Area?

Anyone know of a good shop where I can pick up some good quality wax, clay, shampoo, etc?

In other words, where do you shop (if it's not online, obviously)?

Your local Pep Boys carries 3M polishes and Meguirs.... two popular brands on this board. For car wash, I get a jug of Meguirs Gold Class at Target for around $7.

Happy detaling!

Most any large paint store will carry the 3M line of paint care products. There are several good (reliable & prompt) on-line stores - and the cost of shipping will be about the same as sales tax, so there is no extra cost.

These two are highly recommended: Proper Auto Care and Premium Auto Care.

Autozone has some good stuff too like the Rain-X wheel protectant.
If you want Zaino email Steve. No shipping, no wait.

NAPA auto parts has a lot of 3M/Meguiar products too.
Kragen has the new Viking 100% cotton mitts with the BLUE cuff for $4.49.
ROSS is always my choice for good 100% cotton white bath towels.

Yes, I got quite a few items at Pep Boys - 3M SMR, EO Wet, Stoners Invisible Glass. If you want to stick with 3M you can get everything there. I went the Klasse route and it rocks!
