For those interested, here's a rundown of everything I used:

My cart with detailedimage:

1 Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant - 8 oz
1 Poorboy's World Liquid Natty's Blue Wax - 16 oz 1 Poorboy's World Black Hole - 16 oz
1 Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss - 16 oz
1 DI Brushes EZ Detail Brush - Full Size
1 CarPro Eraser Intensive Oil and Polish Cleaner - 16 oz
2 DI Accessories Dispenser Bottles - 2 oz
1 Lake Country Yellow Cutting Pad - 3 inch
1 Lake Country Orange Light Cutting Pad - 3 inch
1 DI Accessories Sheepskin Wash Mitt without thumb
2 DI Microfiber Waffle Weave Drying Towel - 36" x 24"
1 DI Microfiber Ultra Plush Two Sided Towel - 16" x 16"
1 Lake Country Tire Dressing Applicator
2 DI Accessories Yellow Foam Applicator Pad
1 Lake Country White Polishing Pad - 5.5 inch
1 Lake Country Black Finishing Pad - 5.5 inch
1 Lake Country Orange Light Cutting Pad - 5.5 inch
1 Lake Country Yellow Cutting Pad - 5.5 inch
1 Lake Country Hydro Tech Crimson Ultra Fine Finishing Pad - 5.5 inch
1 Lake Country 3" Backing Plate for Porter Cable 7424 XP - 73 mm
2 Lake Country Snappy Clean Pad Cleaner

Some things that weren't included in the cart:

(purchased at walmart and target for much cheaper)


Meguiar's Ultimate Compound (more intensive paint repair)
Meguiar's Scratch X 2.0 (for swirls and light scratches)
Meguiar's Clay Kit
Lots of cheap microfibers
Porter Cable 7427xp

Some things that were not purchased that I would highly recommend:


Wool pad and meguiar's m105 for tough scratches (I was afraid of using these products on my first detail)
meguiar's m205
Blackfire Total Polish and Seal
Perhaps a different wax. The natty's liquid wax was quite watery and ended up getting soaked up by the pad too quickly.
