Default Best detail spray? Suggestion herein.....

I have been using Griot's detail spray for several years (something like three gallons worth). I often dry wash the truck and my wife's car when they are only slightly dusty as detail sprays pull the dust off of the surface even better than a California Duster --- which I also occasionally use.
I found an old bottle of Mother's California Gold Showtime Instant Detailer in my garage cabinet and decided to finish it up. I'd totally forgotten what an awesome product this is. Seems like twice the shine and sooooooooooo slippery when you are done. Works great on windows too.
One of the reasons I'd been using Griot's is that it is available in gallons, and I did not think that the Mother's was..........well, you learn something every day. The Mother's IS available in gallons, AND it's five dollars less expensive!!! Buying this stuff by the gallon saves you MAJOR $$'s and time. Seems like you can do the whole truck in about five minutes, which sure beats washing and drying it every time its dusty.
For me, its going to be Mother's from now on.....try it, and I think that you will love it every bit as much as I do.......

Mothers is good, but I like Meguiars Quick Detailer in the black bottle better.

Is it available in the gallon size?

Is this the stuff you are referring to? Not a bad price at all if it's as good as you say it is...........

I haven't seen it in the gallon size around here. I also haven't seen Mothers in the gallon size around here either.

You have to order it on line, I think. Maybe your local auto parts place would custom order it for you, I don't know.................

No this is the stuff I was talking about. It's available at Walmart and most local part stores. However, there are probably better options if you go through detailer supply vendors.
