Decided late last night that Kenotek was the way to go so I ordered a bottle from Palm Beach Motoring. Thanks to all for the input.

Price is not an object(I just dropped $90k on a car so worrying about a few bucks difference between detailers is rather silly).

I've researched the following detail sprays: 303 Automotive Speed Detailer, Moonshine 007 Detail Spray, Meguiars Ultimate Quik Detailer, Griots Garage Speed Shine Detailer, Dodo Juice Red Mist Tropical Protection Detailer, Wolfgang Instant Detail Spritz and Menzerna/Jescar Paint Refresh Professional Grade Detail Spray. Are any on that list I've compiled equal to or better than the Kenotek at repelling dust and pollen as well as providing the ultimate shine on a red car? Any comments or input would be greatly appreciated.
Anything you do to the car qd wise will also depend on how well the the surface was originally prepped...

Hope you researched your "professional detailer" as much as you did the qd. What did they do to the car?

Yup... $90,000 car and a $2,000 paint job. Not impressed with GM paint especially when they charge extra for it.

Just tried Uber rinseless wash in detailer dilution (1/3 ounce to 16 oz water) and this is by far the most slippery stuff I have ever used. And I've used several.
It feels like I put a light coat of oil on the car!
And given that dilution this will be the most economical by a long shot.

Yesterday I detailed my car... This is wash, clay bar, light paint correction, polish and wax using off the shelf products. I do not have a show car nor do I do this for a living. That being said I am not going to invest in lot money in equipment or products. I am working with an 9 year old car with 45,000 miles on it and original paint.

Buffer is a Harbor Freight special along with the pads. I picked up a 5" and 3" arbor and pads of eBay for those tight places.

The 425 smells great and leaves a very shiny smooth finish, it is a dust inhibitor too.

Torch Red paint was a no cost option on my car FYI. Didn't pay extra for it. I can see you're just trying to be obnoxious so I won't bother engaging you any further.

As a follow up to everyone else in the thread, I went with Kenotek and it's fantastic stuff. Bought it from Palm Beach Motoring Accessories as a 3rd party seller on Amazon. Highly recommended.
