Sister's Thunder Grey CTS-V


Recommended Posts

Took a trip down to Baton Rouge to visit the family and have been wanting to get my hands on this car for awhile. The timing never worked out but this trip it all came together and had a chance to clean her up the right way. This car was a joy to work on, only real swirls I found were on the center console and the wheels. But it did need some attention. I started with taking care of the interior.

 

After a vacuum I cleaned all surfaces with LIC and went back and applied LC.

 

Before shot still in the garage at 7 am.

Was only able to fit one bucket In the trunk of the Cruze so she only got a 1 bucket strip wash with APC and car shampoo. I advised her She needs to purchase some buckets with grit guards.
