    I bought the external cover, however, there are often times when I will be parking the car for only an hour or two. It seems excessive to cover it at all times. That being said.....birds have a small vendetta against me.

    That and bugs are a pain to try to wash out. Does anyone keep a small kit inside their car to wipe off dead buggers and/or white bombs dropped from above?

    I've used both Mothers California Gold Showtime Instant Detailer as well as Zymol Spray Detailer and they both work pretty well, great for wiping up road grime and bug / bird splats. The Mothers is cheaper from Amazon though.

    I will second the Meguiar's quick detailer. I also have a 4oz spray bottle with Griot's Garage Speed Shine for quick detailing. I'm also a fan of Poorboy's World Bird Sh#t Remover and Poorboy's World Spray and Gloss.

    Premier Formula One Film Cleanse is what I've been using.

    Forgot to mention that I've used both the Griot's Speed Shine as well as their Spray-On Car Wash as well with good results.

    No.

    They are just the standard hand pump spray bottles.

    I wouldn't use the one you pointed out, however, for quick detailing or for spray on waxes or sealants. The pressurized ones are good for big jobs, wheels, engines, etc. So, if that's what you were thinking, those do a pretty good job. But, for quick detailing on the go, the hand pump sprayers are better IMHO.
