Sounds like they do similar things. Does either product contain wax? Thanks.
They are the same product, packaged differently to appeal to consumers or (pseudo) professionals. They contain wax and oils and all kinds of stuff to make your car shiny.Ed328Ci said:Sounds like they do similar things. Does either product contain wax? Thanks.
What color is your car? On my silver and yellow cars the Meguires did not "appear" to streak, but on my black car I could definatly see streaks....robg said:For what its worth, I've been very happy w/ my $4 bottle of quick detailer. I know it may be blasphemy, but I actually like this stuff better than the Griot's speed shine, which is much more expensive. I've never had a smearing problem w/ it and it seems to do a great job of lifting off dirt and bird shit without harming the paint.
I find the reverse. I can NEVER get the Meguiar's stuff off completely and it always leaves behind streaks and swirl marks. What I find USEFUL is to over saturate an area with the Meguiars and then wipe first with a damp cotten terry then go over it with a dry cotten terry.robg said:Chip-
My car is Jet Black as well. I'm using meguiar's mf towels (the best MF towels that I've used) to remove the prodcut. I've found that Griot's speed shine gives me more smearing and streaking problems that the Meguiar's ever did.
Final Inspection and Quik Detailer are very similar products. I believe that Quik Detailer has silicones while Final Inspection does not. Neither product contains wax. If you want a product which includes wax, choose Meguiar's Quik Wax instead.Ed328Ci said:Sounds like they do similar things. Does either product contain wax?
Thanks for clearing that up. Other people were told by Mequiars reps that the stuff was the same, which is how I got my information. Your guy obviously sounds like a more reliable source.Baden said:As told to me by Erik Walker at Meguiar's:
The Quik Detailer (QD) and the Final Inspection (#34) are in fact very similar products. There are only a few minor differences between them.
First of all, the color of the liquids are different. The QD is blue while the #34 is Pink. Second, the Final Inspection is free of silicones which is very important for a body shop (the product was designed to be used in a body shop). In a painting environment, the presence of silicones can cause fisheye to occur in the paint. For the everyday do-it-your-selfer however, the QD would work just fine. The silicones in the QD will make it a little easier to work with as well as leaving you with a little higher of a gloss. Also, there are differences in the size of bottles that the products come in. The QD comes in a 16oz bottle only while #34 comes in both a 16oz bottle and a gallon jug.
