Hey Neil,Word must’ve gotten back to you, because I had been intending to write you regarding my positive experience prepping my Mark II for Pebble, and the resulting best-of-class I won.
In any case, just to clarify, the Mark II was actually originally ordered by Henry Ford II (son of Edsel) for his first wife Anne. It has a few unique “one-of-one” features that qualified it for the class at Pebble, not to mention it was the poster car for Pebble Beach this year per the direct-request of Edsel Ford II (it was his mother’s car ).
Anyhow, it’s a black car, and I was really sweating what I’d use as a “finish-wax” on it that wouldn’t model or swirl or haze. I got your sample of the Triple Play, literally, a few days before I started detailing for Pebble. It seemed very “thin” and watery the way it sprayed-out, which actually seemed PROMISING to me, because I figured it would buff-out with none of the greasiness of a traditional liquid or paste.
I was right, the car came out mind-blowing. Absolutely mind-blowing. I won’t name names, but the president of a very well-known and high-end wax company came back to my car three different times to stare at the finish, and commented “unbelievable” with every visit.. I don’t know if he was impressed or angry. No, it wasn’t Barry Meguiar, I’m talking HIGH END waxes here.. Jay Leno also spent about 10 minutes at the car.
In any case, it got me first in my class, in fact the guy I beat (who took second in the class) was the winner of Best in Show at last year’s Pebble. So I knocked-off the reigning champion with your stuff.
Happy to recommen

I first saw Neil Chadwick’s Triple Play wax/detailing product on this forum. I thought I would try it. I have had many professionals detail my cars over the years and have paid as much as $400 for someone to clay it, take out the swirl marks, spiderwebbing, etc and sure it looks great when they’re done but $400 is pretty steep so I don’t do it too often. I have a few orbital buffers, and professional detailing machines but it took forever and I always had to spend time with a paint brush to remove the white wax from the edges of the clear bra, … I first tried it on my grigio telesto 08 SL which shows spiderwebbing very easily due to its flat but shiny gray color. Neil’s instructions to not wash the car but use a little on the car and wipe it off after 10 seconds didn’t sound right to me but I tried it. Then you just spray a little more then gently rub it with a sponge with a thin layer of rubber (no hard pressure) then wipe it off with a micro fiber cloth. This process is repeated for the entire car which only took me 20-30 minutes and my car came out amazing! It felt like I clayed it and machine buffed and removed all the white was in the cracks.
This product doesn’t leave any white residue to have to clean up, which is great. I used Zymol normally but always had to clean up the residue wax with a brush which takes as long as waxing the car. It didn’t have any oxidation grit that would be typically removed by a clay bar. It felt so slick that when I touched it, it didn’t even leave any finger print marks or smudges. The finish was like glass and the reflection was so sharp, I could not see any spiderwebbing in the finish. Since I only did it 2 weeks ago (and it is still slick), I don’t know how long it lasts. But since it takes no time to redo it, I’m happy even if it only lasts a month. I got carried away and did the rest of my cars myself and I never detail my own cars. I showed to my neighbor who has a special edition corvette and he wanted to buy it but I only had the one bottle. I loaned the bottle to another friend who did his Lotus Esprit and he wanted to buy it also. I did about 6 cars from the one 16 ounce (or so) bottle. I ordered the 2.5 gallon size from Neil for $150 (I think) and he was out of that size so he emailed me that he is sending 3 one gallon containers which I appreciate. I sound like a salesman for him but I am not affiliated with him or this product in any way. I am in SoCal and I think he is in Florida. I thought I would just share my experience since it is rare you actually find something that actually works better than you expect.

Just received the Triple Play kit yesterday. I love it, it is so easy to use on all areas of the car. I have about 30~50 bottles of detailing products in my garage from spray detailer, wax, window cleaner, etc. Now I just need triple play and it does everything better.
The rubber block is way easier to use than clay bar, it also help spread triple play evenly before buffing.
It works great on my satin black vinyl wrapped Gallardo. It made scratches that were already on the vinyl much less noticeable and give it a nice deeper, darker color, but not greasy. I do find circle buffing motion works better than north/south buffing motion on my 3m satin black vinyl wrapped Gallardo.
I took these pics with my phone camera last night in the garage. It looks way better in person.

I used Chadwicks Triple Play on this barn find ’83 Eldorado Convertible the other day…
This was my reaction…. The reflection shows it all.
I tried it on my car today (she was messy after the ice storm and rain and pollen.) didn’t wash it like directions said….(was weird lol) and man she shines!! and an hour after doing it a bird decided to aim at it and the sun baked it on….didn’t see it till a few mins ago and took the spray and wiped it off……the dry poop slid off as I wiped it. I know this stuff will be a hit with the club! I was skeptical at first but man you sold me on the stuff. my meguiars is now on shelf. the tire stuff is fantastic as well, no sling on body and not too glossy and greasy. =) again thanks, ill definitely spread the word and show my club and friends. I cant wait to go to the all fords nats and break out my bottle and clean the car. I wish I had known about this before I washed and scratched my 2010 gt washing it.

You are correct Neil Chadwick! My mind is blown!! Best product I’ve ever used.
Dan Aiken Regional Director SAAC Indiana
I just got back from a 2500 mile trip and I can tell you the car was dirty and really had a bug covered front end.
I was really hesitant to keep from washing the car before I started with your system. Instead I watched your video’s again and decided to follow your system. What a pleasant surprise, I did a first time application with the bar and it took me about 2 hours to complete the whole car. I spent over 12 hours the first time I detailed the car and clay barred everything using multiple products from a premium product company. So in less than 1/4 of the time my car looks better than a 12 hour detail. I gave the car the baggie test and it is practically flawless to the touch.

I was a skeptic, but ordered two bottles of Chadwicks product, to try. I just reordered, this time a gallon. I’m amazed by this stuff. Ease of application, and wipe off. And shine like I’ve never seen.
I won’t comment about, or denigrate other’s products I haven’t used (Z). But I have used many types of wax and polish, glass cleaners, and detail sprays over the years.
This is the best, by far, I’ve ever used.
Just follow the instruction on they’re videos, use clean microfibers, and that’s pretty much it. The very first time (as shown in the video) is a little more work, but not too much really.
I use it on the glass, as well as the paint. Haven’t washed my car, in quite some time. Money saved from not going to the car wash and water not used at my home, makes Chadwick even more affordable, practical, and thinking of conserving water as well, in my opinion. Also, their tire product doesn’t sling all over as well. I can scarcely imagine using anything else, ever, on my C5.
I just took all four wheels off, one at a time for deep cleaning. I use Rejex for this. But also gave them some topcoats (3) of Chadwicks, before re-installing back on the car. Look really nice.

I can’t stop thinking about my Bullitt being on the Titus Will Ford – Ford Dealer Tacoma, WA dealership showroom last Friday. Looking at the picture you’d never know you were looking at a 6 year old vehicle. Looking at the picture my Betty looks like a new car ready to be sold. I have to give a big thank you to Neil Chadwick and Chadwick’s Triple Play they are the reason for Betty’s beautiful shine. After a year of using the product I’m still impressed with the final results. A lot of cars look great but can they stand up the the scrutiny of the showroom lights? I know a lot of you use the three dominate brands out there and it is hard to change when you’ve been doing the same thing for so long. But if you ever find yourself wondering if there is something better out there I urge you go visitwww.chadwickstripleplay.com, read about Neil and learn for yourself the history of this product. In the end after all the dollars you’ve spent on those other brands and all their different multiple stage products why not try a single stage product that will save you money in the long run. Save you money and give any vehicle a winning shine.

I’ll throw up my testimonial too. I have a silver 2001 vert and got my Triple Play kit a few days ago. Today I had a chance to put it to use and like everyone else that has used it, I’m extremely impressed! To begin with, I don’t consider myself a detail expert but I do know several different (time consuming) methods and I worked for a dealership for several years back in the day. I used to be pretty anal but now I have better things to do with my time plus I’ve gotten lazy over the past several years. So after reading all of the positive reviews and very few negative reviews, I bit the bullet.
Regarding the customer service, you’d be hard pressed to find many businesses that are as responsive as Neil is. I asked him for some advice thru PM and he was amazingly quick to respond (don’t know how he does it because I’m sure he gets tons of questions just looking from what I can see from the forums). Since I have a vert and I had been using Raggtopp to clean it in the past, I asked him what he used on his and he said the Triple Play can basically be used on everything including the top, glass, wheels, interior. Which kind of pisses me off because now I have a full bottle of Raggtopp that I can’t use anymore.
Since it was the first time and I was a little hesitant at first, it took me about an hour and a half to do the whole car including the top, windows, wheels and tires (like everyone else says…the tire dressing is off the chain!). It’s amazing how smooth the paint feels after using the block. It’s the craziest method I’ve ever heard of and it doesn’t seem like it would be possible to replace washing and waxing but I’m sold. It’s Chadwick’s for me from now on. Now, I will say someone mentioned somewhere on the forum that after doing their car, it seems like some scratches and paint chips stand out more and I kinda agree. I only have a couple of paint chips but they do seem to jump out you now, so now touching them up is a priority.
I know there are plenty of naysayers out there but most of them haven’t tried it. Sucks for them cause they’re missing out. This stuff is legit. Thanks Neil!

“Many of you know I am bold and straight forward. Some of you are family, friends from over the years, car enthusiasts or listeners from my previous life on the air. Most of you know I don’t endorse any type of product I don’t believe completely in. As a matter of fact, I have taken my name off several commercial clients during my years on the air if I didn’t completely believe in a product’s capability or client’s service. When I was told about this new product, I wasn’t completely sure it was for me. After all I’m old and stubborn and very set in my ways. After watching a couple of demonstrations, I felt sure this was something I definitely wanted to try but was still a little shy of. I’m very overprotective of my car. It’s like one of my children. I even named her The Black Widow when I got her. So the car is a very touchy subject with me. I picked up my product Friday afternoon before our Club Meet at Furious 7. I had previously scheduled some tint work for Saturday. So all day Saturday I counted the clock down patiently awaiting the pick up of The Black Widow. I was itching to try this new product out. The sun was starting to set when I started on my hood. I couldn’t believe the results. Water spots-GONE. The product striped off any dirt, spots and left a clear amazing shine on the car as if I just picked it up out of the showroom. I was so excited at this point I worked into the darkness until I couldn’t anymore. I woke up at 6 went outside to start back on the exterior. After church I worked on the top of the car which by the way was the worst part showing every little water spot since I bought the car almost two years ago. I finally finished up the Black Widow and still can’t get over the incredible shine and mirror like exterior. Before when I washed my car and used spray wax I only thought it was shinny. This time with my new product, The mirror reflection was absolutely clear almost like I was looking through a completely focused camera lens where as previous washes resemble a camera out of focus. Stopping right there for a moment to tell you, I’m not a company representative, I’m not getting paid or free product from this testimonial. This is first hand working knowledge of how this product is the most effective car product on the market. How can I tell you this is the best? Justin and I have probably one of the largest shelving units of car washes, waxes, detailers and tire shines on the market. We could open our own automotive shop and start detailing cars. So I have tried just about anything on the market. Chadwick’s is a waterless product that has completely baffled me trying to figure out exactly what’s in the bottle. If you’re still reading this post, then I am sure you love your vehicle just as much as I do. With that being said, I know you are doing a disservice to your vehicle if you aren’t using this product. Every other product I bought prior to Friday night is in the TRASH! Our family will never use anything but Chadwick’s. I am posting the pictures after I cleaned her up today so you can see the amazing shine she now carries. I am also tagging some of the rep’s you can contact about obtaining this product so you can see for yourself These pictures were taken from different angles from on top of my step ladder to lower ground shots. None of them are edited in any form or fashion . Chadwick’s Is the best kept secret on the market! But it’s time to get the word out. After all, what kind of friend would I be if I let you keep putting harsh chemicals on your ride. You won’t be disappointed! You can contact Donald Shirreffs Parker Black or Aaron Bickel for more information on the product.” Tracey K.
I love Chadwick’s Triple Play and I can tell I am one of the world’s biggest skeptics! I am an everyday driver of my C7 and the road grime and water spots from the rain were horrible. Not to mention I live in Louisiana and the humidity is aweful. So that’s what I delt with . Well instead of ordering Triple Play like I needed another cleaning product I called Neil Chadwick. Poor guy I had a million questions and amazingly enough he answered them. I could not believe that he answered the phone to begin with much less talked to me. I had to try the product. Omg the shine is amazing! The rain water beads right off of the car and by the time I get home it’s dry. Simply amazing! I can not say enough about the car. Also I must mention that since Neil Chadwick has been in the detail business for so long I still call him with little issues and he still answers my questions. I am a believer and will never use anything else on my car. I buy it by the gallons and I love the tire sling as well!! Thanks Neil!
Sheila from Louisana
We used CTP for the first time a few weeks ago on our new C7 Stingray and were very impressed with the results. The product worked exactly as advertised. So, then we decided to put it to the real test and tried it on our jet black BMW X5 and the results were the same… a showroom shine without any swirls. Now, we’re totally convinced — this is an amazing product! We just ordered a gallon of Chadwick’s Triple Play as we intend to use it on all our vehicles from here on out.
C7 Corvette Stingray Experience
When my daughter arrived home from college with her white Subaru that looked like she driven thru black paint, I panicked. I called the number on the bottle & WOW Neil picked up the phone. You made it very clear DO NOT WASH her car WITH SOAP & WATER. I NEVER pulled her car out of my garage. I put tape down the middle because I knew no one would believe me how dirty her car was. The results were REMARKABLE. You are a genius & these photos I have taken is the proof that No One should ever clean their car again the old fashion way (soap & water). The only product & system I would ever use is Chadwick’s Triple Play. I am PROUD to say every car in my household is CHADWICK’d! A loyal customer for life…

Chadwick’s Triple play is absolutely the best detailing product I have ever used. I had first found this product at Lamborghini of Palm Beach. I have been detailing cars for over 18 years so I am always curious what everyone uses or little tips and tricks. First of all I am a vette head… I have a fully worked ZO6 that Hpsalesflorida custom built for me for road racing etc.. So back to the Lambo story. I was having some work done and I noticed the head detailer using this product. I asked him if I could try it.. he said go ahead. I sprayed the hood of a murcielago then wiped it clean and could not believe how well the product worked. Not only did it clean the surface, it was super slick, it left no streaks, and had a shine that blew me away. This product is so effortless. and if you do the blocking system you will see for yourself that your paint will feel like glass. It took me a little while to grasp that I only needed one product. Well now I use 2 products, chadwick’s triple play and chadwick’s no sling tire dressing. period.. This product had me sold and plus the fact that Lambo uses it on cars that are well over 200-700k it was a no brainer. There’s no fluff or gimicks it just works. Try it once. I did! Thanks Neil for your constant support and amazing product that you have perfected! Get chadwick’d

Received my Chadwick’s kit a couple days ago and thought I would give it a try. Application was easy, results were great. Recently used a synthetic wax followed by a carnauba wax, so my car was in pretty good shape. My car is always clean and shiny, but I am not OC about it like some. I am not an expert detailing, but I know a nice finish when I see one, and that is what I ended up with. My car has never been shinier or as smooth to the touch. Buffer blocked the entire car and really noticed the difference on the hood and rear end. I buffer blocked the rear end 1/2 at a time to compare the two, the difference was night and day.
Tire shine gel worked well with real looking results.
I for one will be a customer.

“I’ve been a car guy since before I was old enough to drive. I bought my first Porsche at 19 and my first Ferrari at 23. I collect vintage Ferraris and Mercedes Benz. I’ve never found a detailer who could finish my cars as well as I could so I learned how to detail my own cars in and out myself from a young age. I’ve tried many of the highly touted products out there and have had great results. I heard about Chadwick’s Triple Play and it looked like it had potential. After using the product on my BMW 650i Convertible, I must say it is the best automotive care product I’ve ever used. My car looks better than when it left the showroom. Neil’s guidance throughout the process and his customer service is without peer. Try Chadwick’s Triple Play and you’ll be a believer. I won’t use anything else on my cars.”

I’m in Australia where Gallardos are very rare and Chadwick’s Triple Play is even rarer! We have no Lamborghini forum site here but I watch (and contribute) to this site regularly and have been watching all the supposed hype about Chadwick’s Triple Play and decided to give it a go. Neil was VERY helpful replying to my emails (about shipping costs to Australia) VERY promptly and surprisingly the stuff arrived in perfect condition in less than 7 days which is better than Amazon or EBay’s delivery to Australia, it was at least as fast as anything I get from overseas (which is a lot!). I used the Chadwick’s as per the instructions and I gotta say that it is BETTER than you guys make out! Maybe its because we don’t have the variety of products in Australia but all the main brands you mention on here are here but not your real boutique ones like Chadwick’s. I am a detailing “junkie” to all my cars and show a car at least once a month (sometimes 2 cars…. I get my wife to drive the Lambo as it’s her favourite!). I have ALL the brands…. you name it…. if a forum says it’s good, I’ve used it but, seriously, NOTHING is as good as this stuff….. you shouldn’t get this good a shine for so little effort, it just doesn’t equate (i.e. you “should” have to work a full day to get anything like this shine and yet I was done in 90 minutes)…. I really hope the guys I show against don’t get onto this stuff! It will be great going to a show from now on. Because of the distance I travel to get to the top competitions (up to 8 hours, but usually about 2 hours) your car can look dirty by the time you get there – not anymore – I’ll do a quick Chadwick’s when I get there instead of spray on detailer. Was there anything I was unhappy about? Well, yes, the postage – it was $A155 (about $140 US dollars!), Neil only passes this cost on he doesn’t make a cent on it, it’s a USPS rip off 100% so I’ve suggested to Neil to get an agent in Australia (which he is working on) and then I believe, once correctly promoted on the forums and at car shows, it will sell extremely well here.
So my verdict is…. even though the postage is a rip off (for now), I will be a regular buyer whatever the cost.
It’s the best I’ve ever seen or used! Regards ED BURTON
Ed Burton from Australia
Dude very impressed with the product & I’m not just saying that. I did my wife’s car fist minus the clay bar & was somewhat impressed but when I did my 80 with the bar I was blown away. This car was in my opinion looked as good as it could FYI I have been cleaning on this car for 3 weeks on & off. Your product removed stuff from the paint other cleaners clay bars didn’t. The car has a different look & this is a honest no BS statement. Next I tried it on our 15,000 org mile 04 dark gray lightning & once again blown away. The last of my spay was used on my friend’s white GT that sits outside year round. Now we did wash this car first because it was just so dirty plus I didn’t have the product to clean the car with. I did his hood & just like the others I was so impressed.
Mike C. from Mustang Week
I received my order from Chadwick’s a week or so ago and this past week I tried it out. I was very impressed how easy it was to use their products and the professional looking results that I achieved. I really put their product to the test on my truck, which I’m ashamed to say looked bad. I Used the product as the instructions said (ie; apply without washing the vehicle first), and I was happy that it does everything that Neil said it will do! Next I had to try it on my Z and again I was very happy with results. I know that there a lot of good products out there and I appreciate all of the wonderful ideas, To be honest when Neil made post on this thread, it told me that Neil is a man who believes in his products and who see customers as people who want their vehicles to look great, instead of man you wants you to just but his product. There is a difference. He provided me with Customer service where you could tell they enjoyed dealing with me instead of you’re being a pain attitude, that is too commony now days.

Hello Neil: Well buddy, I can officially say, ” I’ve been Chadwicked, or my Corvette, anyway”! Debbie and I applied the triple play system to our 1995 Torch-Red Convertible, and words cannot express the outcome and the ease of use! I, as you know, as others were, was skeptical! Debbie and I, as a team, did the whole car, windows, wheels, and rag-top, in about 35 minutes. And that’s with blocking it the first time. I probably used more than I should have, using 3/4 of the bottle. I realize it is concentrated and will spread it out more next time. The Vette shines like there’s no tomorrow and it’s that deep penetrating gloss! We are heading to a classic car show on Brigantine Island, New Jersey, where we live! Neil, thanks again for a great product and being such a “hands on” owner. You’ve got a customer for life and we will be tellng everyone to “Get Chadwicked”!! Your friends, Fred and Debbie

Hey Neil I received my kit yesterday. Wow!! This stuff is amazing! I will be ordering the gallon jug in the near future. Your tire dressing is the easiest and cleanest tire product I have ever used. I wish you made air fresheners that smelt like the tripleplay…lol. Thanks for the great service and the stickers. Jason
