What Makes Surf City Garage® Enthusiast Grade® Detailing Products Different?

Hot Rod Protective Detailer

  • Micron Adhesion Technology® extends the life of your paint by providing maximum UV protection.
  • Super advanced technology creates an incredible smooth-as-glass mirror finish.
  • Advanced synthetic polymers last up to 6 times longer and are much easier to apply.

Most Other Brands

  • No Micron Adhesion Technology®, leaving paint unprotected from damaging UV rays. 
  • Most use older petroleum-based technology, which can create an uneven, streaky finish.
  • The older petroleum-based detail sprays wear off quickly and can be difficult to work with.

Surf City Garage's Detailing Tip:

  • Is your car parked outside in the hot sun all day, every day?  Use Hot Rod Protective Detailer twice a week for a great shine and unmatched UV protection against even the hottest sun. 
  • Hot Rod works great on glass and chrome – and even on plastic moldings.

Five stars isn't enough to really say how great this is . Review by Nick

This has to be HANDS DOWN the absolute best product I've used on my car, ever ! This is literally a protector and detailer in a bottle and it works GREAT !! If you're not sure if you wanna get this or comparing to other products all I ask is that you do the split test like I do. One side treated with hot rod and the other untreated then it'll go without saying or anymore testing that clearly the better product is the hot rod detail spray. (Posted on 7/19/2018)
Hot Rod Detailer Review by Timbrr

I got a bottle of Hot Rod Detailer in a mystery box. I decided one day to try it on my black Firebird show car. Now I'm a big Speed Demon fan, I was amazed at the shine. I used it twice and won my class both times. Guys and gals get a bottle of this and a bottle of Speed Demon detail spray. The results are spectacular. Thank you SURF CITY GARAGE.

Simply Amazing Review by George
Overall Rating
I have used every detail spray under the sun, moon and stars. You name it and I have already bought it. The Surf City Hot Rod Protective Detailer is the BEST. Easy on, easy off, superior gloss. Stays on after a rain. I had initially found the product at a Walmart in Ocala, Florida. I was super happy with the results. Then I ran out. Couldn't find it where I live. Went online and bought a gallon! Won't run out anytime soon. To say I am happy is an understatement. These folks have great chemical engineers!!! If you are considering this product, buy it. I am sure you will not be disappointed. You'll be a fan like me. (Posted on 11/21/2017)
So slippery I watch flys land on that finish and slide right off Review by Beecuz
Overall Rating
I have gone through many bottles of the Hot Rod detail as I will detail my Ram every time I wash it. That is beecuz it is so easy to apply and wipe off that I can do the entire Ram in less than 1/2 hour. I don't worry about wax build up as that is not a problem at all. I show my Ram and like it to look good all the time. Hot Rod makes it shine and is so slippery, folks ask how I do that and I bring the Hot Rod bottle out (Posted on 11/1/2017)

Was looking for something that would work well with my OCD tendencies in regards to my car. I was frustrated and then I found Hotrod detailer! I use between washes and sometimes right after a wash, as its shine is unparalleled. My new 2016 2SS Camaro always turns heads, but with this product it's a show stopper (Posted on 7/17/2016)
Hot Rod Detailer Review by JC

I have been detailing cars for over 45 years and have used all the detail sprays out there from Meguiers to Zymbol, Ice, Mothers etc. They were all good but Hot Rod detail spray blew them all away as far as ease of use, cleaning power and most of all Shine! If you are like me and love that mirror look, this is the product for you! (Posted on 7/15/2016)

Hot Rod Detailer Review by John
I purchased your product for my 2013 GMC Sierra after applying the detailer I was impressed with the shine, I had been using Formula 113 for years and your product out performs it. When I was the vehicle after the dirt rinsed off with a hose I couldn't believe it. I also have a 78 Corvette Pace Car and decided to try it out, I can assure you I was not disappointed. The car shine like never before. Thanks for making such a Great product. Can't wait till Itry the detailer for black cars. (Posted on 3/30/2015)

Surf City Detailer Review by tedibearJEFF (Verified Purchase)
Overall Rating
This Surf City detailer Hot Rod Protective Detailer is above average for a quick spray and wipe product. Goes on easy, wipes off easy, leaves a nice sheen on plastics too like bumper and windshield cowl molding. Price is right. I'd rank it better than some Meguiar's and Griot's Garage products, and right with Turtle Wax Express Shine. (Posted on 11/10/2014)
