      Better make it 2 drying towels , shouldn't need the wheel cleaner, just wash the wheels often. I "NEVER" use a wheel cleaner. Wheel cleaners are for people who are too lazy to clean thier wheels regularly.

      I actually do have 2 drying towels in the cart, just didn't show up when I copied and pasted.

      Anything else you'd recommend? I have buckets already, I just feel like something is missing but I don't know what it is.

      Finally let up with the rain for a couple days.

      Clay bar, followed by a coat of 4:1 mix of 601:105, then a coat of 105, then a coat of clear coat polish. All from Duragloss.

      Looks good, some good stuff I didnt see on your list that I find to be very handy...

      One of those daytona wheel brushes to clean inside the wheels.
      Some smaller drying towels to use on the low portions and the underside of the bumpers. Did your Cobra kit come with one?
      Trim dressing in aerosol for for the lower honey comb grilles, Meguiars vinyl and plastic coating.
      A stiff bristle brush to scrub tires clean
      A gallon of concentrated all purpose cleaner.

      Wheel cleaners usually stain (permanently) brake/suspension parts. Unless i have some extremely dirty wheels OFF the car I won't use any.
