Towels, Where and what to buy for full detailing?

I'm new to detailing, previously only used automatic car washes, but I have decided to I'd like to do a little more with this car.

I ordered the Zaino kit and plan on washing/claying/applying z2pro-zfx/z8, however I need to get some towels to do all this.

I've looked at autogeek, pakshak, and detailers paradise, and there are just too many to choose from. What do I need from where, and how many of them do I need to successfully detail my car? If somebody could give me a list of the towel type, how many of each, where to purchase them from, and what to use them for it would make ordering them much easier.

Thanks, Brandon

Get 1 of this for drying the car outer body - http://pakshak.com/waffle-weave-micr...l-25x36-1.html

2 of these (1 for upper part of car and 1 for lower part) - http://pakshak.com/eurow-genuine-she...wash-mitt.html

1 set of these for z6/z8 and wiping off z2pro(3 in a set)- http://pakshak.com/ultra-plush-micro...l-16x16-3.html

get 5 of these for everything else like windows, door jambs, lining in trunk and hood after washes, interior, etc. - http://pakshak.com/ultra-micro-fiber-towel-16x16-1.html

use the application pad(s) u should have got for free from zainostore to apply the z2pro.

This is all you will ever need. **EDIT** i forgot about wheels and leather interior if u got it. for wheels i use any old rag laying around to dry after spraying eagleone wheel&tire cleaner. for leather i use lexol ph and conditioner, and use terry applicator like the free ones from zaino to apply ph, and rub dry with the ultra mf towel. for the conditioner i use my hands to apply and also use ultra mf to dry off.

Thanks sungmin, thats exactly what I needed to know. 1 question though, pakshak has a new ultrasoft ww http://store.pakshak.com/ultra-soft-...l-25x36-1.html would this be better than the other ww? Only reason it might not is because it is thinner than the other version.
