    Google and youtube are your friend. Look for two bucket wash method.

    In addition to the 2 bucket method, you might want to familiarize yourself with the Gary Dean wash method too.

    Simplified version, and from experience;
    3x 4.5 or 5 Gallon buckets with Geniue Grit Guard (NOT SCRATCH SHIELDS!) (+ optional Angled Grit Guard)
    1 bucket for Paint rinse, Paint soap, and one for Wheels.
    Paint Mitts: Chemical Guys Bear Claw or Microfiber Chenille ''dreadlock' mitt. (+ optional use two different one, one for the top of the vehicle and one for the lower part)
    Wheel Mitt: Pretty much any quality one, detailing brush and a soft brush.
    Meguiars Hyper Wash, Chemical Guys Glossworks or alike (Dont buy cheapo ones, you'll regret it and these last forever) I bought my Glossworks back in january, and I havent even reached anywhere near 1/3 used, Im probably at 1/4 used, if im even at that point.

    As for drying, quality microfiber tovels with a spray wax, Chemical Guys P40, Meguiars Last Touch, Meguiars X-press spray wax, and alike.

    and for last, dont buy Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax, unless you want alot of trouble. (They stain trim, really hard to take off, and really hard for novices to apply in thin layers in hand)

    2 bucket wash/youtube it. Also a lot of products out there, however, I am a Surf City Garage guy-----reasonably priced and enthusiast grade products. Enjoy

    or the more fun and less economical way, foam cannon with power washer, and then 3 bucket method (only when its really dirty)

    Or a rinseless wash with Optimum No Rinse (ONR) and two microfiber towels. Google/youtube 'washing with ONR' to see the process in action.

    2 or 3 bucket method for when really dirty and a rinseless method (Gary Dean method and Megs D114) works for me.
