¬†You Madame are bad ***! By any chance do you have a sisterūüė≥ūü§™

Sorry I only have three brothers...no sisters.¬† I was always told if going to play with the boys I better not come home crying...so I tried to be just as good at everything they did too.¬† Which as it turns out I¬†am WAY better at detailing & racing cars then them ūüėĀ.¬†¬†¬† Funny story though...they came home one day when was in my teens & told my parents I couldn't play tackle football (just neighborhood games...not leagues) with them anymore as the guys on the other teams were¬†letting me tackle them & my brothers were tired of having "talks" with those guys.¬† It was kind of hard dating in school as all the guys knew about my brothers because of those talks & my brothers always met with the guy before a date to tell them that if I cried they would cry. My Dad never had to say anything.¬† Needless to say I dated & married a guy from a neighboring school...lol

Finally got both our cars washed.  It will last only a day, but I’ll enjoy it.  The interiors need some attention, but maybe maybe next weekend.  Time to have lunch and prep some goodies before the game.

I can report that after a week in Florida, Pollen season has started.  I managed to touch up the Suburban and Golf cart that I did in November, skipped the Equinox this trip but did convert a Canadian after helping him with his Red van.  This was a whirlwind trip with only two days of golf since the purpose was to attend a 85th birthday party which went very well.

 

Fort the Pollen, I found that detail spray and a single soft smeared it more than lifting it.  However, Waterless Wash and and Waterless Wash towel, followed by the a borderless grey worked like a charm.  The one morning that there was no dew on the car a simple puff of air knocked it right off.

Was able to wash the truck today. FINALLY was able to use some products I got a while back. Thoroughly cleaned all the black trim on my truck (man there’s a lot) applied Black Trim Restorer, let that cure, then applied Ceramic Trim Coating. 

Trim restorer really brought the color back and made it pop. Ceramic Trim coating, again, really made it pop. Letting it cure indoors tonight and will see how well I applied the coating in the am. Hopefully doesn’t look streaky. 

Next week or so I will run the polisher on the paint and then try out the new Ceramic Spray Coating I snagged when it came out.

I decided to make my youngest happy today by making her Range Rover shine.  Besides the fact that I hate the wheels on it, the rest of the vehicle isn't too bad.  We've had rain in South Carolina today and I was able to get it washed between showers this morning and then into the garage.   The first picture is of her mirror that may have contacted her mailbox and the second picture was after some work with APC and Finishing Polish.   Unfortunately, the sun did not come out so I had to take the last picture in the garage.   

 

Strip Wash, Revive, LPS, Americana and finally Brilliant Glaze to make it pop.  @falcaineer Chris, I actually put BG on top instead of underneath which is my preference, but I wanted it to pop when she opens the garage after work.
