From washing your car to protecting your car’s paint, the Ultima Clean, Protect & Preserve Paint by Hand Kit offers everything you need to achieve and maintain that deep, wet looking shine.



The Ultima Paint Guard Wash provides thick, luxurious suds that last through the entire wash. The included Genuine Wool Wash Mitt is an ultra plush mitt that that can safely wash away the dirt and grime without scratching your car’s finish. Your car will emerge streak-free and ready to be pampered with the Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Drying Towel.



After your car is washed, the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is ready to step in. A revolutionary replacement for automotive detailing clay products, the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System removes bonded surface contamination from paint, glass, chrome and plastic without the abrasive effects of harsh polishes or the inconvenience of detailing clay.



Ultima Paint Prep Plus is a versatile paint polish specially engineered for modern clear coat paint finishes. Apply Ultima Paint Prep Plus by hand to enhance the shine and prep your car’s finish for the Ultima Paint Guard Plus.

Ultima Paint Guard Plus is the longest lasting, clearest and easiest paint protection you can apply to your car. This product takes less than ten minutes to apply to a clean, dry vehicle. Simply apply and walk away. No buffing required.

The Ultima Detail Spray Plus mist-and-wipe spray detailer offers an easy solution to keep up that freshly detailed look. Use the Ultima Detail Spray Plus with the Ultima Autospa Microfiber Buffing Towel everywhere to lightly clean, dust and shine. Use daily on paint, glass, plastic and wheels to maintain a “just detailed” appearance.





Step 1: WASH

Ultima Paint Guard Wash

Ultima Paint Guard Wash with the Genuine Wool Wash Mitt and Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Drying Towel is the perfect combination to safely wash and dry your vehicle.



1 Thoroughly rinse vehicle to remove loose dirt and grime. For best results, wash the vehicle in the shade or when the sun is low in the sky.



2 Fill a 5-gallon bucket 2/3 full with cool water. Add 1 ounce of Ultima Paint Guard Wash to the water. Using a stiff jet of water, fill bucket to fully activate suds.



3 To avoid swirl marks use the included Genuine Wool Wash Mitt. Dedicate a separate wash mitt or wash sponge for the tires, wheels, rocker panels and lower valances.



4 Always start at the top of the vehicle. As the suds run down, they will take more loose dirt and grit with them, reducing the possibility of scratches and swirl marks. Wash along the length of the vehicle in straight lines, never in a circular motion. Use plenty of wash solution and rinse wash mitt frequently.



5 Rinse frequently and do not allow suds to dry on your vehicle.



6 When rinsing, open hose to full flow and allow water to sheet off surfaces. To avoid water spotting, dry immediately after final rinse with the included Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Drying Towel.





Step 2: CLEAN

Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System

The Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is a revolutionary replacement for automotive detailing clay products. It removes bonded contamination from paint, glass, chrome and plastic that is not removed with your normal washing process. Vehicles in new or like-new condition can be treated 20 to 25 times with a single Elastrofoam Block.



1 Prior to use, thoroughly wash the vehicle. Failure to thoroughly wash and rinse may lead to paint scratches from grit and other forms of hard contamination. Feel the paint to find areas of heavily bonded contamination and roughness.



2 Spray rubberized face of the Elastrofoam Block and the area to be cleaned with Ultima Cleaning Lubricant Gel. Proper lubrication is essential. Never use dry. Work on a small area (2’ by 2’) at a time.



3 Lightly glide the Elastrofoam Block over the area to be cleaned in a back and forth motion.



4 After several passes over the area, dry with the included Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Polishing Towel.



5 Inspect by feeling for remaining contamination. The surface should feel perfectly smooth, like glass. Repeat if necessary.



Frequency of Use: Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is a very gentle polish and may be used as often as needed to remove bonded contamination. At a minimum use twice a year as a pre-treatment before polishing with Ultima Paint Prep Plus for best results.

Elastrofoam Block Care: Keep the Elastrofoam Block clean. During use, rinse frequently in a bucket of soapy water and squeeze to remove excess water. Store in a cool, dry area. Do not allow the block to sit in the hot sun.



Step 3: PERFECT

Ultima Paint Prep Plus

Ultima Paint Prep Plus is a fine, non-abrasive polish that deep cleans paint, smoothes away swirl marks, water spots and fine surface scratches, while increasing over-all paint gloss. As it cleans and polishes, Ultima Paint Prep Plus leaves behind a special primer designed to promote proper bonding of Ultima Paint Guard Plus paint protection.



1 Always work on a completely clean and dry vehicle. Never use Ultima Paint Prep Plus in direct sunlight or in the middle of a hot day. Park vehicle in a shaded area and allow to cool before application.



2 Dispense 3-4 pea size dabs of polish on the included orange Ultima Autospa Polish Applicator. Use Sparingly, about two to three ounces of Ultima Paint Prep Plus is all that is needed to polish most cars.



3 Work on a small area, about 2’ by 2’ and only one panel at a time.



4 Work the polish into paint. If removing swirl marks or visible oxidation, rub briskly. If the paint is in good condition, there is no need to rub heavily.



5 Work in until only a fine film remains. As needed, apply more polish to the applicator.



6 Buff off with the included Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Polishing Towel to a brilliant shine.



Frequency of Use: Ultima Paint Prep Plus is a very gentle polish. Use twice a year as a pre-treatment prior to applying Ultima Paint Guard Plus.



Step 4: PROTECT

Ultima Paint Guard Plus

Ultima Paint Guard Plus, containing Polycharger Wax Booster technology, is the longest lasting, clearest and easiest paint protection solution. This product takes less than ten minutes to apply to a clean, dry vehicle. Simply spray on and walk away. No buffing required. Ultima Paint Guard Plus is a highly concentrated paint sealant. A single ounce is enough sealant to treat, seal and protect about 5 vehicles, including the glass.

Ultima Paint Guard Plus can be layered to produce more shine. In most cases, 2-3 coats of Ultima Paint Guard Plus can produce stunning results. To keep this shine, re-treat monthly and maintain with Ultima Detail Spray Plus.



1 Always work on a completely clean and dry vehicle.

2 Mist the included Ultima Autospa Microfiber Applicator with Ultima Paint Guard Plus twice (two pumps) to prime the pad with sealant. Use sparingly, less than ¼ ounce is all that’s needed to treat most cars.

3 Start at one corner of the vehicle. Apply the sealant in a circular motion to spread out, then finish by applying in a straight line. This will help to see where product has been applied. If any streaking appears, simply smooth out. When it appears that no more sealant is being applied to the paint, spray one more shot of sealant onto the applicator.

4 Continue to wipe until the entire vehicle is completely protected. By the time you get back to where you began, the first couple of panels should already look dry.

Proper Application Note: When applying, sealant should not go on looking “wet”. Proper application leaves what appears to be an oily film, which will begin to dry immediately. Do Not Buff Off or Wipe! When properly applied, the vehicle’s paint finish will be glossy and streak-free in less than 30 minutes. The longer you wait (up to 12 hours) the better. After 1 hour, you can drive your vehicle. Driving (air friction) will accelerate the cure time.

Frequency of Use: While Ultima Paint Guard Plus has been tested for durability (shine, water beading and slickness) up to a year, proper paint care dictates that 3-4 treatments a year offers the very best protection possible.



Step 5: MAINTAIN

Ultima Detail Spray Plus



Ultima Detail Spray Plus with the included Ultima Autospa Microfiber Buffing Towel helps you maintain your finish by quick detailing. This step cuts down on regular washing when you keep up and don’t allow your vehicle to get more than slightly dusty. The Ultima Detail Spray Plus also maintains slickness and shine.



Exterior Application:



Paint Condition: To prevent scratching and swirl marks, Ultima Detail Spray Plus should only be used to clean vehicles that are lightly dusty or have smudges. When your vehicle is dirty, wash first with Ultima Paint Guard Wash.



1 For best results, apply to a cool surface and work on a single panel at a time.

2 Mist the surface of your vehicle with Ultima Detail Spray Plus (hold bottle 12”-15” away from surface).

3 Always use the included Ultima Autospa Microfiber Buffing Towel. Fold the towel into quarters. Wipe and flip the towel often as you buff the Ultima Detail Spray Plus off your surface.

Interior Application:



1 For best results, apply to a cool surface.

2 Always use the included Ultima Autospa Microfiber Buffing Towel. Fold the towel into quarters. Lightly mist the microfiber towel, not the interior surface. Use the damp towel to dust all interior surfaces. Where spills and stubborn stains are present on leather, vinyl and plastic, lightly mist the surface directly.
