What Did You Wash, Shine, and or Polish Today

Recommended Posts

It was a bit cool out this morning so I decided to use Waterless Wash and try and out the Spray Wax on the wife's Malibu since I was staying in the garage.  The garage was 55 degrees when I started and I brought it to 60 to make it a bit more comfortable for working.   By the time I was done with WW, it was 60 in the garage and then I started with the Spray Wax.  I used two separate Borderless Grey towels, one for putting the wax on and another for taking it off and given that the car is rather small, excluding the hood and roof, I did two panels at a time.  

 

The Spray Wax went on and came off very easily and when I was done with the entire car I went it over it with a double soft and the car felt slick.  I put the car outside so I could get started on putting new lights in the truck and that was when I noticed the shine and must say I'm rather impressed.   The ease of use, good smell and end result, with the most important thing being that the wife is happy has this product as a keeper for when I want to do a wash and wax inside the garage.

 

The car was purchased in the fall of 2012 (2013 model) and has over 88,000 miles on it.  Like most of the country, it is overcast out and will be a couple of days before we see the sun again, so I think the reflection is encouraging as to how it will look in full natural light.

Teaching my nephew some stuff. He bought a Adams Swirl killer. I was impressed with it too. He’s new to polishing and detailing in general. But he became obsessed with it pretty quick. Here is a section he polished. 

 

The paint is beyond trashed. He used another brand pad and polish to cut. Finished with Adams finishing polish on another brands pad as well.

Teaser Picture:  The body is done as long as you ignore the gaping hole where the headlight belongs.  The new headlights arrived a few days ago and the plan was to get the new headlights installed and then finalize the shine.  Unfortunately, the headlights are the right model number, but they do not line up to be bolted in.  I am not naming the manufacturer for the lights because I have used them before and they were always correct for fitment.   It will sit in the garage until the replacements get here on Monday or Tuesday.  

 

 I will update the 20 year old Mustang challenge thread later this evening with additional pictures and details of how I applied the CW + CB 2.0 + BG.   The only question now is whether or not my daughter gets it back.  I had it for the first 10 years, sh'es had it for the last 10+, so doesn't that mean it is my turn again?

Only thing I "waxed" today were the blades on the snowblower.  

Then my smartass wife reminded me that there are only 59 or so days till spring.  That's still two months away!  I hate winter.

6.5” of the cursed white stuff yesterday. The only positive yesterday was that after two decades plus of 6 day work weeks I now get both weekend days off. My 10 year old twins and I cleared our driveway and sidewalks then went next door and helped the neighbor clean hers. After that they played in the snow for a couple of hours. When I brought them in I made them hot cocoa and PBJs for lunch.

My SS is manky but with rain and snow in the forecast it’s going to stay that way until we get a forecast of a few nice days in a row. Still, as dirty as it is, my ride is usually the “cleanest” wherever I go.

This wasn’t today, but I thought it was pretty awesome so wanted to post.

 

I got home from work the other morning to find my wifes car covered in snow but still shining from the new GnG that was applied 2 weeks prior to the snow.  It had also been driven once in rainy conditions.  I’m loving the new GnG!

 

Stay Warm everyone!

We avoided what was supposed to be many inches of snow around here last night but tonight temps drop significantly and stay below freezing for quite a while so I figured while it was still above freezing, barely, let me get one last wash in.  

 

Foamed and Washed with the Black Friday Gingerbread Ultra Foam and dried with the remaining Black Friday Cinnamon Detail Spray I had left.

Congrats on the 'shift change' Paul!  Extra time with twins...maybe a double edge sword :D
