Looks good! I would love to grab some iron x from you if possible as well.

Just got 4 L of Optimum Ferrex so yes you can grab some.

I've never used anything more than Turtle Wax and a microfiber cloth.
I've been looking into Collinite wax... do you have any experience with this 10secdream? And the cloths you would recommend to apply it with?
I was looking at ordering from e-shine but the shipping is quite a bit for a single order of collinite.

Collinite 845 is an excellent wax. I can give you a sample that will last you a long time because a little goes a long way.

Have you checked out Carzilla in Calgary?

I would recommend getting some microfiber applicators (round or rectangle) and getting a few premium microfiber towels to buff off the product.

Never heard of Carzilla until I looked them up.
Looks like they carry it, thanks!
Same price I was going to pay online but without the shipping. You did me a solid.

Group buy is up to 7 people. This is without a doubt the best quality microfiber I have come across for the price. This is the same microfiber you can buy at Auto Obsessed so it must be good.

Order has been placed. I will update the rough total owning (assuming today's exchange rate and no duties owed upon delivery)

Well as luck would have it the package did ship USPS but I still have customs fees. This wasn't a fun one at $120 :(

The bright side is that this is the first time I got charged out of my 5 previous orders.

The savings are not as lucrative but still cheaper than what you can buy locally.

Bad news but it looks like the supplier I used for Microfiber towels no longer exists. The hunt continues.

I still plan to make a large detailing order though so If you want something just let me know and I can add it to my order.

How are these guys

I came across them some time ago browsing /r/Microfiber on Reddit.
They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?
